Amazing. I made these about 3 weeks ago and froze about 3/4 of them. They're still in my freezer and I eat them whenever I'm feeling a craving...soooooo just about every night. My boyfriend LOVES them. The best thing is that you probably already have most of the ingredients in your pantry already. I'm making another batch tomorrow :)

Yummy! ... but I thought it tasted significantly better the first day than the second when reheated. Definitely a recipe I will try again, but will probably cut it in half so I don't have leftovers that I'll just end up throwing out.

Eh...not the best tropical drink I've had. I think what bothered me is the chunks of pineapple; it made the drink kind of stringy..yuck. Maybe it would be better with just fresh pineapple juice? Either way, I probably won't be making this again.

I stumbled upon this recipe one day and thought it sounded so gross. I then watched Giada make it on TV and thought, "Wow.. that actually doesn't look that bad" (since Giada can make anything look delicious). I figured I'd give it a shot since my boyfriend loves ravioli. AMAZING!! Giada knocked this one out of the park - The sauce is what makes...

This recipe made me realize how much I hate fennel. That anise/licorice flavor is unbearable. Next!

My boyfriend hates this dish, but I love it! I love olives and could eat them in anything, so that probably has something to do with it, but I also love how it's vegetarian and still very hearty. I think it's so neat how all it takes is some pasta water to make a yummy creamy sauce! Very yummy in my opinion, but it looks like I'll only be making...

So freakin good! They're so cute - small enough to pop in your mouth and even great reheated the next day. I added more mushrooms because I am a mushroom fanatic. They are amazing and great for breakfast, brunch/lunch, or dinner!

WAAAAAAY too much garlic. I would probably only use about a clove in the future and keep the other measurements the same. I wish I could comment on something other than the garlic, but it was so overpowering, it was really all I could taste :(

Very yummy, but I reduced the amount of breadcrumbs and used more gorgonzola so it was cheesier ;) There were too many breadcrumbs for my liking the first time around. They held up pretty well in the fridge too - I ate them the next day heated up in the oven again and they weren't soggy at all.

Absolutely delicious...although I would exactly call this easy to make. The time and effort it takes to make it is well worth it, though! I've eaten just this for dinner, it's so good. I reduced the amount of red pepper flakes since it was a bit too spicy for my liking with the amount the recipe calls for. Highly recommended!

IN-CRED-IBLE! Everyone needs to try this. It's great as a side for a soup, an appetizer, or even a quick snack. I keep frozen peas in my freezer now so I can make this whenever I want. I added some basil to it as well to give it a bit of that traditional pesto flavor and it's absolutely amazing. Thanks Giada!!
