This was very good. We really loved the meatballs. However, I made 24 out of the 3 pounds of meat and they were still golf ball sized, I then cooked them 15 minutes longer and they were just done in the center. I didn't feel as if the sauce made enough sauce to go around, although it was tasty. I froze my leftover meatballs (12) and will serve the"

this is delicious, I have made it twice. The only change I make is I blanch the tips, along with the top 3 inches of the asparagus, for approx 5 minutes, then add them back in the end, as I enjoy my asparagus soup with lots of asparagus pieces in it."

I made these today and after reading through all the reviews, I took the liberty to make a few changes. I added 1 tsp vanilla, 1 heaping tablespoon cocoa powder, 1 TBSP instant coffee powder (to bring out the chocolate falvor), and 2 TBSP Slenda for baking. Many reviews stated that you could not taste the chocolate, or that it wasn't sweet enough."

I have made this a few times now and it is awesome. I made a couple minor adjustments though. I do not add the butter, (you really won't miss it), and i use about 6 strips of bacon in place of the salt pork. This is a must try recipe, full of flavor!"

Simple, but tasty. Be sure to spray your foil well because it does stick. I think that it could have used a bit more flavor, next time I will add seasoning salt and maybe garlic powder to the mix, but very good for so few ingredients."

Talk about flavorful! This recipe is great, the pineapple relish is AMAZING! The only thing is that the pork turns out very very greasy. Next time I will not only drain the grease but also remove the fat cap after cooking, but before pulling my pork."

This was okay, but to me it lacked flavor and was quite oily. I think that if the oil in the dressing was reduced it would taste better."

Great, flavorful, inexpensive recipe! The only problem I had was when browning the chicken the oil got sort of burnt, I didn't want to risk imparting that flavor in the rice so I washed the pan out, added more oil and a little more seasoning. Also, I would shorten the cook time of the rice by about 5 minutes, as it was very soft."

This was easy to make and had great flavor. I used 3/4 tsp cinnamon in both the cream cheese mixture and the whipped cream. I also added 1 tsp almond extract to the cream cheese mixture...yummy! The only thing I think this dessert is missing is some texture. Something crunchy would be a great addition as the whole dessert is whipped cream consiste"

I wish I could give this recipe 7 stars, it was THAT good!! I used chicken instead of turkey, and changed the oil to one TBSP olive oil, other than that I made it verbatim. It was amazing!! Just as good as a restaurant!! I will make this often!! I love Melissa's recipes!""

This recipe turned out wonderfully! I used 2T of the pickling spice, and didn't use the rutabaga. My mom who is an amazing cook herself said it was the best she ever ate. The corned beef was so amazingly tender! Two hours before it was done I took out the veggies and added the cabbage. Kept the potatos, leeks, and carrots in the oven at 200 degre...

I enjoyed this recipe, and it was very quick and easy. The only slight problem I had was with the pesto mixed into the shrimp it was hard for me to tell when the shrimp was cooked through (pink color).
