This was fine, but nowhere near my favorite. You definitely need to add more salt than it calls for to balance out the flavors."

So juicy, we love this. I also added an apple and orange in the cavity. Instead of butter on the skin, I slather all of my turkeys with mayonnaise then salt and pepper. I roast uncovered (no bag) for 2 1/2 hrs till the temp is 165. I do not make the potatoes and carrots.""

This is sooooo yummy. I added a bit more cauliflower to reach 3 lbs. I used some half and half in place of milk.""

You definitely need to add salt, as in all sweet recipes, to balance the flavors. I love chopping the apples, adds a good texture and makes it unique. But its not the best crisp we have made.""

I love you Aaron, but this was not a hit with us. It didnt have much flavor, needed lots of salt. But the next day I made soup with the broth and that was yummy.""

Not as good as original banana bread, cuts down a lot of the sweetness of the original because of how "sour" the cream cheese is.""

Dang Aaron, you are ridiculous! I made these for Thanksgiving and they are crazy good. I did need to add some more buttermilk for moisture. I doubled mine but did not double the amount of pepper or onions and it was perfect. So good to make our leftover Turkey sandwiches on instead of sliced bread, yum.""

Mixed reviews in my house. All liked it, some said too lemony, others said not lemony enough. And a neighbor I gave them to said they were the best she has ever had and doesnt even like lemon bars. I am not sure what to rate, ugh. I think I will keep searching for the kind I buy in bakeries, but this was very tasty."

I just love you Anne, you are adorable and fun to watch. In fact my 7 yr old watched this episode 3 times. However, these would be great if only they had more salt to balance the sweet. It adds such a depth of flavor. It needs at least 1/4 tsp of salt, not just a pinch. Thanks for the fun idea, my daughters loved eating these at a slumber pa"

Very good. Actually preferred the taste an hour or so later. It got better as it sat. But good to serve warm, so reheat a bit in microwave before serving with ice cream. Not sure if I will make again, but enjoyed it this time."

We liked the flavor, but it had a bit of a chalky and tangy aftertaste. If we make it again, we would do with strawberry and banana, just too many seeds in our teeth with the raspberries."

I love Melissa's stuff and this is no exception. Needs lots of salt, but otherwise great.
