I won't make this again. Meat just had no taste even with all the spices called for in the recipe

The yorkshire pudding was excellent. But the cook time for the roast was way off. When I took it out to turn it it was already too done.

The stout is added at the start, listed right before the olive oil.

You gave it one star. Was it not good with the chicken stock?

Replied to slow cooker macaroni and cheese

Oct 18, 2014 on

Trisha has many great recipes, don't give up. This mac and cheese is different from those where you make a cream sauce on the stove top. I have made this both in the crock pot and in the oven (the alternate instructions she offers in the recipe) . My family loves it. I find the results in the oven are more like "normal" mac and cheese.

I make this a lot and use a whole 16 oz box of pasta. I don't add any other liquids and it has come out fine, just right actually.

Reviewed penne with butternut squash and goat cheese

Oct 17, 2014 on

Overall, this was quite good. I, like others, needed to add more flavor so I toasted pecans (out of walnuts) and had to use cream cheese b/c I couldn't get any goat cheese. I added some adobo seasoning (Goya is the best) and it brought it all together. Very good and I'll make it again.

I agree.. ratings like this should be removed as they are not accurate. Cooks want to know how THIS recipe is, not a person's thoughts on it or doctored up version

Not sure why those odd characters are in my review. Also, you can use Pepperidge Farm chessmen cookies. Very good

why would you rate something you haven't tried?? roasted garlic is something you make to add to a recipe.. completely different flavor from raw garlic.. you should remove you ONE star rating..

The 1 star rating should be removed as it is inappropriate. People will bypass lower rated recipes.

These are wonderful. Soft, buttery, moist.. I love the milk chocolate. For those using a baking stone you don't need parchment and mine baked for exactly 14 min. "

one thing, for this recipe to make 12 servings with only 8 oz of pasta it is really just a side dish. 8 oz of cooked pasta only fills a large cereal bowl, then add the cheeses etc you have more but not 12 bowls full of mac and cheese

it's best not to rate the recipe if you haven't followed it exactly as written.
