Reviewed Cornbread Dressing with Pancetta, Apples, and Mushrooms

Dec 25, 2013 on

The recipe is not that difficult once you have your ingredients laid out. I stuffed my bird with the dressing and held off on using all of the broth concoction. The family enjoyed the taste as we only have dressing once a year, And I love dressing and really enjoyed this recipe. No distinctive taste rushes out, but all of the ingredients blends...

I really like this soup. Right up there with the Carrot Soup recipe. More importantly, my wife loved this soup, And so easy to make. You might want to cut back on Curry powder if you don't like that, as the one teaspoon does seem to draw the flavor to that taste. And I used white pepper instead of the cayenne.
This recipe will be one...

I added in bacon, onions and garlic. Made a double batch for Easter lunch. It was all gone when the dinner was done. Had to cook for 1:30 to get everything baked well. Did the garlic and onion with bacon and then poured over before I added spices.

Very tasty and pretty simple to make. would add more Brussels sprouts next t...

I have to admit that it was a bit more work than the time allotted. however, if you read the recipe you gotta realize that this recipe is going to take some coordination.

I used only one pepper, grilled the chicken, and with all the oil, it was hard to keep the flames down. Potatoes were great and the meal overall was very good,...

I really like this recipe. I did a double batch on my first time and prepared too much liquid. But the kids and the wife really enjoyed it. I put the cheese on and then put it back in oven for 5 minutes to let the cheese melt.

And be generous with the garlic!!"

I enjoyed this recipe. The ginger could be better used instead of following the directions, and I used corn starch to thicken the sauce. Very tasty and watched the Jayhawks beat Purdue at the buzzer. That was dessert.""

Quick and easy, I didn't have the gravy, and it came out good. May add more potatoes to the recipe next time.""

I wasn't too impressed with this recipe. And for the most part it was that I am not a wild game meat eater. The sauce was too watery so I added corn starch to thicken and that helped. My wife enjoyed it, but just not a hit at our home.""

I also agree to the bland taste. I was so excited when I started because a friend dropped off a load of basil on my kitchen counter top and the smell drove me crazy.

Maybe some dark meat instead of the breast. And the sauce needs to be thicker. Will give it one more try with double the basil and perhaps a peanut based thicker...

This salad was great for a boat outing we had. Nice and cold on the summer lake. Easy to make, Worried about to many garbanzo beans but no, it was great the way it was. Used frozen corn and added some liquid smoke.

My boating group loved it.""
