Reviewed Perfect Potatoes au Gratin
"This dish was the hit of my dinner party but it was also the dish I was sweating bullets over because it didn't finish cooking according to the recipe's time given. I think it took about 1 hour and 10 minutes to cook. I also jacked up the heat to 425 at the 40 minute point since the potatoes were still hard. Thank goodness I had some time to let "
"This is the best soup ever! The grilled corn and red pepper really do make it special. I followed it exactly except I was dubious about adding 4 cups of tortilla chips because it seemed like it would absorb too much of the liquid so I added just 1 cup and it worked fine. Please try this soup -- your family will love you for making it!"

"The sandwich really does taste and look like it's from a deli. I made four sandwiches and the dressing recipe could have been cut by 75%, so if you make it to serve 4, then at least cut the dressing recipe in half. Combining the dressing and kraut is a good trick for sure because it holds really well that way. I was skeptical about placing the k"
Reviewed Chicken and Herb Pot Pie Stoup
"Everyone loved this stoup and I think it truly captures the essence of a chicken pot pie. I used dried herbs and not too much, probably 1 tsp of thyme and 1/2 tsp of tarragon and that was just the right amount. But I also added about a tsp of poultry seasoning since I really wanted to make sure it had that homey flavor, and it sure did! I also "
Reviewed Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes
"I felt the flavor of this dish was too rich for the way I prefer mashed potatoes to taste. I prefer the humble flavor of the potato to be the star and in this dish, the garlic and cheese overpowered. I used 3 large garlic cloves and I strained the garlic out of the half and half after heating it to a simmer. I did not use parmesan, but rather ro"
"I have served this dish three times to rave reviews, one of those times to company. Everyone from child to adult loves this dish. I use about 2 lemons which comes to 1/4 cup and I believe that is the perfect amount of lemon. The only things I do different from the recipe is that I do add some flour when I am sauteing the onions in butter to thi""
Reviewed Easy Chicken Curry with Vegetables
"WHAT JUST HAPPENED? The entire family, including myself, became enraptured in this dish. It's like when we ate this meal, we stepped into a new dimension, another planet, a place we had never before visited. Melissa, this is the second dish of yours that I have prepared to rave reviews. This is easy, light, healthy, and so very delicious. I d""
"This dish is excellent! I love chicken and yellow rice but the recipe I have used for years is not for a weeknight preparation since it takes a couple of hours because it requires marinating the chicken, having fresh sofrito, etc. I was able to whip up this recipe in under an hour. I added 1/2 cup more rice and I used 4 legs, 4 thighs and 4 win""
