Everyone has a recipe like this one - just different variations. I think 2 cups of sour cream is way too much. Then you add a can of soup. Too "goopy." Made it exactly as the recipe states. My husband liked it, but I was just okay with it. I've had and make better. It could have used more flavor - maybe bacon and red/green peppers. Using fro"

Liked the results. Distinct flavor with the lemon zest and cheeses. Don't overdo the butter sauce. Like puffly little clouds. Very tender, but very very rich. Don't make them too large. Cooked for the full 6 minutes. Dough is super easy to make, but cooking in batches takes a long time. Next time I make will be as an appetizer. Too rich for "

Not happy with this recipe! Expensive to make and it was way too fudgy and moist. Like eating an underbaked brownie. I remember Giada saying it tasted like a very fudgy brownie.

This is the best fruit salad I've ever made. Very refreshing. The toasted coconut adds a nice touch. The honey/lime dressing is just the right amount and adds a great taste. Next time I will cut up Kiwi in a little thicker slices so they don't get mashed. Made this weekend for family and they gobbled it up. I love Jamie's recipes and hope Food Ne"

I must be from some other planet, because it seems everyone loves these dumplings. I was not impressed with these dumplings nor will I make them again. I've made many different recipes for an apple dumpling and these are my least favorite go-to ones. Definitely make sure you use the large buttermilk biscuits (smaller won't wrap around apple sli"

So good and tender and flaky. Most scones are dry. These were a little too fragile to dip completely in the glaze, otherwise they fall apart. I drizzled glaze over top, let dry, and then drizzle some more. Outstanding and I'll make again. Be sure to stir the vanilla caviar into the cream well or you'll have clumps of it. Love Ree's recipes and l"
