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

May 31, 2014 on

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.

The review really should be written on the cake baked EXACTLY as written, This review is for a totally different cake since you made so many changes.

there is an icon over to the left above where you can pin it or share on FB.. but you have to figure this out yourself, along with adding to recipe box.. that is the icon under it.. but NOW I can't even open my box.. I'd encourage you to contact FN and complain.. I did.. I hate the changes

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. "

This was so good and easy. I did use half lean ground beef and half venison. The chili was so good but with the leftovers I did add some black beans b/c we like them.. Very good

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

the first time I made it it was runny and I realized I had put a full cup of broth into the salsa mix instead of just 1/2 c. just a thought, when I used the right amount of liquid it was perfect

you don't need to boil the shrimp, they cook up in a flash in the oven.. I have bought raw shrimp before that seemed to be slightly pink but was still raw

These were ok and I will make them again but not with a sweet cornbread mix. I used Trader Joe's that is more on the sweet side. I used Sweet Baby Ray's hickory and brown sugar BBQ sauce. I did use the pickles but don't see that they make much difference one way or the other. All in all an easy quick appetizer to make with a few adjustments to...

I served roasted chcken breast on the side and some people mixed it in with the pasta.. very good addition. Next time I may also add a little bit of toasted sesame oil to give it some extra flavor. The arugula and pepper flakes gave this dish a...

I brought this to a church picnic and it was a hit. To fill the trifle bowl I have and to make enough for a pot luck I had to double the recipe. I didn't have the Maria crackers so had to use the grahams and that was fine. I'll find the other crackers for next time I make it. The only change I made was to add a sprinkling of toasted coconut wit"
