Reviewed Spinach and Cannellini Bean Dip
"I saw Giada make this on the Cooking Channel and made it that nite; but I heated it up after blending so it was more like a healthy creamed spinach...I added abt. 1/4C grated parmesan (good idea & a splash of tabasco (bad idea, won't do that again!...will try this as a dip for sure & the color looked great before I did the final heat-up."
Reviewed Indonesian Grilled Swordfish
"This was one of the best recipes ever for swordfish and it tasted even better cold(in a bit of its own sauce) the next day. Thanks Ina"
"AMAZING...this is restaurant quality...I had to use tilapia and it still was terriffic!! However, the sauce was just enough for 2 people...I'd double it if serving more...could definitely serve this to company. Even the small amount of leftovers were great. And, since discovering Melissa, I use herbs de provence in many dishes and love it!"
Reviewed Pot Roast Carbonnade
"This is another Melissa winner! I used Beck's dark beer and, as a result, it seemed a little sour, so next time I'll grab a bottle of Belgian beer at Whole Foods where I can get just 1 bottle if I choose to. This time I just used a little brown sugar to adjust it...also used a splash of worchestershire. Flavors kept improving over 2 days!"
Reviewed North African Meatballs
"This recipe is addictive! It doesn't take that much time to make...I do the meatballs 1st & let them set up in the fridge while I make the sauce. Have made this several times with beef & will try next with ground turkey.
I always learn something from watching Melissa's shows...& I've been cooking a very long time and consider myself an accompli""
Reviewed Daube a la Provencale
"FANTASTIC...the macaronade was great too, using 2/3C gruyere cheese.
I added about 2T orange peel cut into strips to the cooking mixture and it had a very subtle taste.
Re-heating it the next day, I felt it needed abt. 1T worchestershire sauce because the flavors had kind of disappeared in intensity. Will definitely be making this for company""
Reviewed Key Lime Pie
"The nite I served it after making it that afternoon, I thought it was cloyingly sweet; but, after an over-nite in the freezer, it really mellowed out and was great!""
"Really flavorful and I loved the herbed sour cream...I over-cooked the potatoes but they still tasted great.""
