Perfect cornbread with a crunchy exterior. I can't wait to try it with bacon drippings in the pan! I understand some people like a bit of sweetness in their cornbread, if you do then this recipe as written is not the recipe for you."

We really enjoyed this. It was done at 50 mins, and I served it with vanilla ice cream about an hour after taking it out of the oven. Very tasty and easy!"

I made this to go with a ham and Alton Brown's baked mac and cheese. It was great. Surprisingly good tomato flavor in winter time, but I'll be making this year round!"

The combination of being quick, easy and quite good make this a 5 star recipe. My husband said that having romain this way is "fun", and we could all use some fun, right? ;-)"

I tasted the pork on its own and was like "hmmmm, ok", but then when you pair it with the slaw and the toasted bun, which is pure genius by the way, it was like "omg", seriously. thanks Ree! Oh, for those of you who are just reading this recipe I should mention that the "toasted bun/sandwich with slaw" part are from Ree's blog.""

This isn't TexMex! I love Chile Rellenos and this recipe rivals any that I've had out west. The roasted poblanos really shine and the oregano is a great touch. I over roasted the chiles the first time but I've learned that lesson. Really love this recipe!""

I've loved chiles rellenos for as long as I can remember (grew up in El Paso), and this recipe rocks. It's very fresh tasting and you can really taste the poblano. The oregano was a great touch! The sauce is awesome. Make extra cuz the leftovers heat up great. Thanks Marcela!!"

RR has some great recipes (her Fajitas have been in my regular schedule for years) and this is one of them. Easy, fast, and tasty. The trick to sealing the pastry is to make sure it stays dry, any moisture and it won't seal. Thanks Rachael!

Easy and really good. I was wondering if it wouldn't be a little bland considering the simplicity of the ingredients, but it was very flavorful and hearty.
