This recipe was a very good. I omitted the cabbage and replaced the jalapeno with Salsa Verde. This will be a go to in the future!

I am wondering if there was a mistake in the recipe. "Reserve 1 cup of the cooking water" and add to the final puree. I think it had real potential and would recommend leaving the water out as it was too thin afterwards.

I keep trying another bite to see if I might change my mind.....but it is just...dry and boring. I don't taste the cheese roux and even tried another reviewers suggestion to add cream soup. It is still not what I had hoped for. "

It wasn't bad...but as we are crab connoisseurs we were a little disappointed. My husbabd couldn't tell if it was crab in the pot pie or chicken. I thought I even used more crab meat than the recipe called for. I am not sure I will make it again. "

This recipe had so much potential. I followed as directed and it seemed too sticky and too "peanutty". I really love peanut butter, so it even shocks me to say that there may have been too much. My guests were polite and said they enjoyed it without going back for seconds. My children told me the truth...."Please don't ever make that again Mom"."

Very impressive recipe. As I was cooking, the kitchen smelled of yummy warm peanut butter. We weren't disappointed by the taste as it was a home run of flavors. My husband who avoids soup eagerly finished the leftovers. I will be making this again soon."

I was excited about the tuna dressing on top of the pork. It was nice, but not over the top amazing. I wonder what else once could substitute for the tuna....bacon? I will try it again and look to vary slightly."

This was very good and my husband and son both loved it. I omitted the grapefruit juice and agree with the prev reviewer that the sauce wasn't a syrup but more of a glaze. This was my first time using Bok Choy. We really enjoyed it and I will look forward to making it again."

I have been searching for a green bean recipe for years that tasted like my great grandmothers.....AND THIS IS IT!!! I placed all ingredients in a crock-pot and let simmer on low for 8+ hours. I used fresh green beans and substituted splenda for the sugar. It was amazing and my guest raved about it telling me "I am not leaving without this recipe...

I am a mashed potato connoisseur and this recipe is at the TOP of my list! To cut down on the amount of liquid, I removed most of the liquid created while cooking the mushrooms before putting into the mashed potatoes. Add more liquid as needed, but not all of it.""

Hot Hot Hot! Be careful with the red pepper flakes. I used breakfast Italian sausage that may have had its own kick and then with the added heat from the red pepper flakes our tongues were on fire after each bite. Not bad, but I will use the red pepper flakes sparingly next time.""

I added panko on top as it went into the oven for a little crunch. Also, I switched out the cheese for swiss AND parmesan- you can never have enough cheese in my eyes. I drizzled the balsamic mixture on top (only 1/2) and saved the rest for a salad the next day. Delish~""

Love this recipe! I love ground turkey, but my husband seems to have an aversion to it. So I was thrilled when I saw this blend of turkey and beef. I figured I could slide it past him. Sure enough, after tasting it he asked what it was, as it was “Amazing”. I might be able to turn him into a turkey lover yet with recipes like this."
