FYI...LEAVE the recipe alone! It is great as it is written. I don't get these people that change the recipe and have to post it! Adding sugar no less! (Yuk) Having come from an Italian heritage there are just some things you don't do! Adding a carrot to the sauce and then removing it will sweeten the sauce with the natural sugars from the carrot....

How could anyone love cottage cheese and hate ricotta! Having said that just because your kids hate ricotta that doesn't make this recipe good! I DID make it and it is gross. Enough said.

Don't need pepperoni...the breakfast sausage and cottage cheese is sickening enough

Well my friend and I did make this and it was gross! NO Gail, ricotta and cottage cheese are NOT interchangeable in lasagne!! My ancestors are turning in their graves! Maybe to someone that does NOT know what real Italian food is....but seriously, "breakfast" sausage!! This is hillbilly lagagne! Waiting for Granny from the Beverly Hillbillies to pop...

Jeez...this is just plain gross. I too am Italian and this is an abomination of one of the greatest cuisines in the world. This is like if I took one of her cowboy meat recipes and used a meat substitute! Pepperoni in lasagna! Lol....yeah okay with cottage cheese no less! My friend (she is Southern) made this and I had to choke it down. Pioneer woman...

Reviewed Crisp Chicken Wings with Chili-Lime Butter

Jul 18, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

A bit baffled by some of the not so great reviews of these wings. We think these are SO GOOD!! They are crispy, tasty and every time I make them everyone wants the recipe! The lime just sets them off and the flavors are classic Thai which I love. To me, this recipe is PERFECT.
A very nice change from the buffalo style and I might add that...

Outstanding! Delish raw sauce packed with flavor! I think quite possibly some of the "bitter tasting" reviews on here may be because they got some of the bitter pith in with their lemon zest because this was not bitter at all. Tangy is a better description and very fresh tasting. My husband doesn't like too much lemon and he loved this. Nice at ro"

very nice! Good flavor and even friends that normally don't like asparagus tried it and liked it. Love Melissa's recipes. They are simple and packed with flavor. Cut the leftovers in one inch pieces and added to a risotto the next day! Really good in that as well."

Reviewed Easy Caramel Sauce

May 22, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Although easy to make it really didn't taste like caramel. It was more like a brown sugar sauce. The sugar just doesn't really completely dissolve because of the lack of liquid so it is a bit granular. Has a nice brown sugar flavor though. I too had to add more half & half. Great sauce in a pinch but for me it just doesn't have a caramel taste. I'"
