Absolutely Delicious! I doubled the fruit and since I only had 3 pkgs of cream cheese, I used that plus 3 cups of heavy cream whipped to soft peaks and then added to the cream cheese mixture. I also added a bit more sugar for a slightly sweet taste. It was light, heavy on the fruit and made 2 smaller trifle bowls....most of which was gone with "

This was terrific; I did play with it a little after reading the other reviews; can't ever just follow directions. I used half grated swiss and half sharp white cheddar and added a little grated parmesan to the top with the other cheeses. I also used my garlic press to smoosh 2 large garlic cloves that I added to the cream. It was DELISH and my"

Followed the recipe; but, as others suggested, reduced lemon juice to 1/3 cup, which was still a bit too much. The final product was a too stiff after chilling and it was a bit gritty. My husband liked it but this was disappointing and I won't make it again. ""

Delicious!!! Have made this several times, the latest tonight. I skip the "boiling" step; brown the meat in my dutch oven, remove the meat and wipe out the too-browned garlic and excess oil and then return the meat to the dutch oven with additional garlic, etc. I cook the ribs an additional 15 minutes and serve with jasmine or basmati rice. Terrific...

Great go-to pie crust. As directed, I chilled the pie crust before rolling it out and putting it in the pie plate. I then put it in the freezer for about 30 minutes before pre-baking it prior to adding the filling. It was flaky, nicely browned on the bottom; a real treat that stodd up to the pumpkin and pecan pie fillings. Thanks Ina; a real ...

Fabulous Pumpkin Pie; everyone loved it. I had too much filling for my pie plate and poured the extra in a small foil bread pan and baked it with the pies. We got to preview the filling before dinner. This is now my go-to pumpkin pie recipe.

Good, basic sauce. I added 1T Amore Tomato Paste (in a tube) to deepen the flavor. I also used a well-known brand of canned tomatoes and wished I had used a better quality...had to spend time picking out skin and green tomatoes. With a bit more oregano and the tomatoe paste and a bit more basil; it was perfect and the house smells wonderful!

Great Dish for cool evenings. I halved the recipe and used ground beef since I had it on hand. And I used left over mashed potatos to which I added the egg yolk. Of course, I halved the chicken broth too, but it wasn't enough for gravy. Next time I'll use 3/4 C chicken broth for a half recipe so there will be some gravy. He liked it; had 2 platefuls....
