Reviewed Lentil Soup with Beef

Easy & Excellent! Thanks, Giada, for another yummy recipe. I did manage to exercise a modicum of self-control so added, only, 1 Bay, 1/2 TB. tomato paste and 1/2 tsp. thyme. The second time I doubled everything and gave away to neighbors plus friends who said it was the BEST lentil soup they'd EVER had!!

Better than Perfection! This year was the first time I ventured into Southern Cooking by preparing this receipe and it's truly excellent. David also has a great recipe for cauliflower baked in white wine which I prepare often. This sweet potato pie will become a permanenr part of our Thanksgiving celebration and I hope you'll add it to yours!

First time I prepared this, added the 1/4 cup Worcestershire but the taste was too pronounced for my liking so, the next time, I added only 2 TB. and found it had a better flavor. I also substituted the Cheddar with Provolone and plan to prepare again with same changes.

This is an excellent salad dressing although I made a minor change by reducing the 1/3 cup of sugar to 1/4 cup. It's very reminiscent of the '50's and '60's ... am sure you'll like it so give it a try!

As I changed this somewhat, didn't feel right about giving 5 stars. I left out the red bell peppers, the Italian sausage and the kidney beans (one of 3 foods I dislike)- used pintos and black beans and added half a pound of my homemade chorizo. My first time to put beer in chili and thought it was a very good addition. To save time, two nights before...

Loverly! (as are so many of Emeril's recipes). I've sometimes had this served on iceberg but prefer the bibb. It's always nice to have a terrific go-to salad when friends comes to lunch and one friend, to whom I've served this salad 3 or 4 times, now says she'll decline my next luncheon invitation if I don't plan to again serve this! Thanks, Emeril...
