this is my GO TO stuffed mushroom recipe. It's amazing. I've made this at least 10 times now. I just add the entire 8oz container of mascarpone since I never wind up using it again before it goes bad. Family LOVES these

This was great. The chestnuts were expensive ($6/lb) and not sure they added all that much to the overall flavor. Can probably skip those if you wanted to save a few dollars.

Ground chicken meatballs are great - love that they are baked too. But skip the sauce. It's runny and lacks flavor and depth. Make Ina's marinara sauce instead - you won't be sorry."

This was delicious. I made it vegetarian so used a rich veggie stock (carrots, onions, celery, garlic) instead of chicken and skipped the sausage. This has great flavor and will definitely make again."

Absolutely delicious. The key to success is the shrimp stock. Used the heads and peels from the shrimp (along w/ onion, celery, carrot, garlic, ...) and made a rich stock. Also - added okra to the gumbo that I cooked down a little bit in a separate pan to remove some of the slime. Instead of crabs used shrimp and crayfish. Will definitely mak"

Thanks Emeril for an outstanding & simple...

This recipe is delicious. I'm not a fan of pork, and wanted to avoid the calories of bacon so I didn't include them. Believe it or not - the bacon flavor was not missed.

Rosie - I made it the night before with no problem. Still one got sick. Letting casseroles sit overnight in the fridge after adding eggs is no problem."

This was very good, but the onions were not worth the work.They require almost constant watching, and there's no way I can devote that much time and effort to something that can easily be substituted. I'm glad a did a trial run before Xmas. ""

It is not clear to me why this recipe only has 4 stars. It is AMAZING. So simple, so tasty. If you don't like it spicy - only use 2T of curry. A bowl of this along w/ some bread - YUMMY

This chowder was OUTSTANDING. I incorporated suggestions from others, including omitting the 2nd stick of butter and using whole milk instead of half & half. Neither were missed. I will definitely make this again.
