Yup. Guess I can see why this is Giada's #1 dish. It's my wife's favorite and she asks me to make it every weekend. I even made it for my mom, who is an excellent cook, and she asked me for the recipe, which she hasn't done on other dishes I've made for her."

The sauce was the killer of this dish. I don't mind putting butter in my stomach, but I want it to be worth it. The tortellinis were good, though. Just took a while to make them."

Another one of my favorite dishes by Giada. Such a simple dish to make too. I add chopped chicken to make this a meal."

Wasn't a bad dish. Added some chicken to make it a meal. My wife and I both like garlic, so contrary to other reviewers suggestions, we used 3 garlic cloves and it wasn't over powering to us."

Took a while playing around with the squash, but definitely worth it. This is one of those dishes that will be made many more times in the future. "

Wasn't impressed with the flavors of this dish. Was just really bland to my wife and I. Was too runny as well. I always use fresh ingredients to ensure I get full flavor, but it didn't matter here."

Reviewed Cranberry Sauce

Apr 27, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a hit. Even after Thanksgiving, when leftover cranberries were on sale, I picked up a few bags and made this dish just to snack on. Was almost like a desert for me."

Apr 27, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

When I first read the title of this dish, I was reluctant to try it. For some reason it just didn't sound appetizing. I can now say that this is one of my favorite dishes! I try to make it as often as possible. Really simple to make as well."

Reviewed Potato Gnocchi with Wild Mushroom Sugo

Apr 27, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this dish twice so far. The first time I was sick so couldn't taste anything. I also made the gnocchi from scratch just to say I did. That took a while, so decided then that I'd just buy the gnocchi next time around. The second time I made this dish (not sick), everything came out delicious! The sauce is so good and could be used to top so "

I was worried about this being too lemony. It was just right. My wife and I treat ourselves to these guys frequently. I have to make sure I make these AFTER dinner. Otherwise, I'll fill up on these cookies and not want anything else."
