I give this only 3 stars bc I think a whole can is crazy! I love spicy food but OMG a whole can!?! I used 4 peppers and still a few ppl thought it was too hot. We also ate it just like a roast not on a soft shell like she did. Maybe that would cute the heat. Other than that it was YUMMY! PS I also used cherry coke bc that's what we had. I have had"

I was so excited to try this recipe. However it turned out pretty bad. It's like they didn't try this before they made it!! First everyone else who said the crust was toooooo salty was right! And TWO cups of water!?! At one it was getting gooey. ( I only added one) I followed this recipe to a T. There is no way you could get all of this in a 9in p"

This was VERY good! Like someone else said, this is their new mac and cheese. This is really a savory dish! Next time I will only add 1/2 t of the red pepper flakes. A bit too spicy for the little ones. Mmmmm again is all I can say! A&A Deppen.""

Our family thought this sandwih was just okay. I am only talking about the sandwich alone and not all the toppings. I did really like the crunch it had but other than that it was just kinda blah! Not to mention this recipe made a crazy amount of dirty dishes. And lots of prep work, so all in all we wouldn't make this again. The mayo did help add ...

This was sooooooo good! Everything came together perfectly. The pudding was super easy! I couldn't find the same cookies so I used oreo 100 calorie packs of chocolate wafers (4 packs). Probably not as thick but it did the trick. I can't wait to make this again! Thanks again Paula! xoxo A&A Deppen""

I thought this was just okay. I have had better. I thought there needed to be twice as much cake or less cream cheese mix.Just seemed to be missing something??? Also beware if your berries aren't at their peak it can be a bit tart. Very easy! A&A Deppen"

This was a good pie from what I could tell. Like others I didn't know this was the temp for the convection oven. It was very custard like and the bottom of the crust was not done. The top looked done so it wasn't until we cut it that I noticed it really wasn't done enough. Paula's own pie looks like a better bet. I will try this again with the right...

I thought this was good. However I thought the sc milk made it a bit too sweet. I also went with what others said and added only 1T of van. and no orange zest, also added raisins. I added cin and nutmeg which really made the dessert. I know I know, you shouldn't leave a review when you change so much but with all the changes you are still left with...

This review is for the cakecake. This was good for a "no bake" dessert. It was quick and easy and everyone liked it. I would add an extra banana like others said and I made my own gc-crust to make a 9" pie. I also made my own real whipped cream. Thanks, A&A Deppen

These were really yummy! Now maybe I shouldn't leave a review as I changed it some. I always hate when someone changes the whole recipe and leaves a bad review. I coudn't find cane syrup ANYWHERE so I used dark corn syrup as others suggested. I also didn't use any of the orange flavors. The sp were cooked perfectly and the topping was very good. Thanks...

These were good. Easy but a bit messy to make and be sure to leave yourself the whole 6hrs to let them set. They were a big hit at the halloween party and you could use them for really any holiday with any color. Thanks, A&A Deppen

This was yummy!!!! Loved the choc and bananas. We ate this as a dessert as I think it would be too sweet as a breakfast food. But it would be fun to take this to a carry in where there would be other food. It is best the first day but darn good the next also! I also used almonds. Remember this isn't something you eat everyday so live a little and...

I do love PD but not so much this recipe. I didn't care for the mayo as some others said. I also thought you could half the filling. You didn't really get to enjoy the crust. All in all so so and I probably wouldn't make again without changing the recipe. Lots of great reviews so maybe just our taste. Thanks A&A Deppen

I thought the meat had good flavor but was a little chewy, maybe it was my mixture. My fav recipe from the old red Betty Crocker cookbook has you add milk so it's always nice and moist. I also thought the gravy was very good but not on meatloaf. It was more like a spag/pizza sauce so I wouldn't use that again for the meatloaf. I think we will stick...
