I love this recipe. It is simple but has so much flavor. I pound the chicken breasts thinner than they come from the store, cooks more evenly and faster. I never have used the fennel seed, so I can't comment on that aspect."

Love this recipe. I only make half of it, for our family of 5, and we have enough for another meal and a couple sandwiches, half the recipe makes a lot of meatloaf. I mince the onions and don't use as much as the recipe states, makes it more kid friendly. I also add a couple cloves of minced garlic while I saute the onion. When I only make hal"

Love this recipe. I make the recipe as stated, but to save yourself some time and energy, dump your cooked potatoes into your kitchen mixer fitted with the paddle and let the machine do the work for you. I use half & half instead of milk.....because if I am going to eat mashed potatoes, I am going to do it right."

Loved this recipe. I have never had Ikea meatballs, so I can't compare there, but I have had my grandfathers and always thought his were the best.....I hate to admit, but these are just as good :) I didn't use pork, just had ground chuck on hand, otherwise I did everything else to a tee. My kids loved it, that makes life easy. This recipe will"

Love it. I have made it at least 10 times now over the past year. The first couple times I made it I followed the recipe word for word, it is very good. However, just thought I would share what I did to make it our families favorite chili recipe, did everything as stated above, but added 2 TBS of unsweetened cocoa powder and 2 TS of cumin and ...

I love this recipe, my picky kids love it. The only thing I do different is I use 2 lbs of ground turkey, we aren't pork or beef eaters. Otherwise, I do everything just the same as Ina did in the recipe. It is really good. I use an ice cream scoop to get the meatballs all the same size, works out perfect.""

I love this recipe, in fact, this is how I am making hamburgers on the grill from now on. We skipped the english muffins as the buns though, just used the regular ol' buns :) The caramlized onions are AWESOME, so much flavor added to the burger, the onions were great all by themselves. Try this recipe on the grill, it is great.""

I usually stink at making gravy....this recipe is fool proof and it is REALLY really good. I agree with another post on here about the length of time it takes to cook the onions, slow and low is the way to go, it makes all the difference in the world if the onions are cooked right. I have made it several times now, once I had no brandy, so I le...

I have been cooking for 15 years and I have NEVER attempted to make fried chicken. I always thought it would be too messy and too much trouble. HOWEVER, this recipe is easy, not messy and the chicken turns out really moist. I thought maybe the flour coating could have used a little zip, maybe a dash of ground red pepper?"

It is so good, it floored me at how much I loved it. I am not a huge fan of peppers, and I couldn't get enough of this. I am thinking about making it again tonight! Anything that evokes a moan and eye closing while eating it it a keeper. I followed the recipe exactly, EXCEPT, I am not a fan of blue cheese, so I used goat cheese, SO GOOD."

My family loved it. It was fancy, delicious and great leftovers. I could not afford the Calvados (apple brandy) so I just bought a little half pint of Korbel brandy and also used it when I made Ina's gravy...TOO GOOD!!! I deboned and butterflied the turkey breast myself, took me about 20 minutes, but I got it done and did pretty good considering...

The best cranberry sauce ever! I left out the nuts, we have an allergy in the family. I will never buy that jellied canned cranberry again, this is easy and everyone loved it. I got up in the middle of the night and had a few spoonfuls, I was dreaming about it. Seriously, try it. It is nice, cause you can make it the day before, one less thing...
