Made it the first time exactly as written and it was amazing. The 2nd time I was just getting ready to put it in the oven with we were called out of the house for several hours, so I threw in the crock pot and cooked on low for 7 hours. Not so good. The sauce watered down and the flavor diluted a lot. If I'd made it in the crock pot first, I never"

It took trying several different recipes before finding this one, which is perfect. Ridiculously easy and dangerously good. I always make 4 instead of 6 in 8 ounce custard cups, baking for 16 minutes at 425 and they turn out perfect every time. You can nuke leftovers in microwave for a minute and they're still incredibly good. "

I made 2 batches and modified the 2nd after making and tasting the 1st. I agree with everyone that says you must measure the cranberries to 1 pound (1+ bags of fresh cranberries). I made the 1st batch exactly per the recipe. We had enormous oranges (large grapefruit size) and the zest and juice from the whole thing was entirely too much. The zest "

This was gone in 10 minutes by a crowd of 4 men watching the game yesterday with mumbles of 'this is the best stuff', and 'bring more crackers!'. I only got 2 bites, but I have to agree it was amazing. I made it according to the recipe, but added 1/2 cup mozzarella as some other suggested (great suggestion), and canned, quartered artichokes chopp...

My favorite marinara. I make it all the time so there is always a jar in the freezer. The only changes I make is to add more garlic, a pinch of red pepper flakes, and let it simmer for at least 30 minutes. Full of flavor and so easy. Great with Altons meatballs. "

Absolutely love this. Goes with so many things as a side dish and its so simple. Keeps well in the fridge as leftovers for lunch the next day. The only changes I make to the original recipe is less olive oil (only 1/8 cup instead of 1/4 added after cooking couscous), and added a bit more cranberries. I was concerned that that much lemon, mint, and"

This is an amazing side dish to fresh grilled salmon. Light and fresh with complex flavors of lemon and herbs. I made exactly per the recipe with the exception of chervil, which I couldn't find, and it was perfect. I could eat this every day. Is a permanent part of our summer dinner rotation."
