Reviewed cranberry sauce with pinot and figs

Nov 23, 2014 on

YUM! I've made oodles of different cranberry sauces and this recipe is now within my top 5. The only change I made was to cut the sugars and honey by half. When adding the figs in (which I chopped for improved distribution) there was plenty of sweetness IMO. Did I say YUM?

I fully appreciate why so many people enjoy this recipe. It is rich and creamy and cheesy. But bland. Only when you get a bite of the poblanos is there the slightest zing to this dish. I adore Emeril, but was hoping for a superior result. Considering just one factor: the effort ... or the cost ... or the huge calorie hit, I can't say this was worth...

I am impressed and thrilled to have found this recipe! I thought I didn't like rice pudding, but I was looking to use up white rice so I gave it a whirl. YUM! My only change was to use chopped Mission Figs in lieu of raisins. I will SO be making this again. Thx Tyler!

Yum! I made this recipe to rave reviews changing only two things. I used ground (extra lean) chicken in lieu of pork, and I only boiled the wontons in stock (no frying involved). Hubby couldn't keep his mitts off of them and agreed that although the ingredients (ketchup/mustard) sounded unorthodox, the end result was great. Because my recipe resul"

Undecided between making this recipe from Emeril and Bobby Flay's version that is served at Mesa, I made both. The only change I made to this recipe was to increase the salt to 2 tsp, and they were great. There is a subtle sweetness and the texture is perhaps lighter than some, but thoroughly enjoyable. Emeril won the contest of the corn muffin in"

Totally yummy! I used shiitake mushroom caps as that was what I had on hand along with emmental and roast turkey breast. I inadvertently skimped a bit on the BAM and cayenne as I was making a 1/4 recipe and find pinches to become ambiguous. Next time I'll kick it up some more. Great lunch, you should make this!"

I was skeptical, but this recipe turned out very well! I would happily make it again. I used less couscous and shrimp than directed so it had a heavier veg component, and the curry paste I used made for a delicious result. This definitely scratched the "let's go for curry" itch."

I am a fan of whole wheat pasta and an even bigger fan of lemon so I thought this recipe would be superb. My only changes were adding a few asparagus tips and halving the recipe. The lemon zest was gorgeous, but in hindsight I would have liked a little bit of onion or garlic and a squeeze of lemon juice. The texture of the ricotta IMO was the letd"
