Melissa's recipes are not original or profound. However, they are probably most useful for less experienced cooks.

Michael Chiarello can do no wrong! I love this recipe & all of his recipes. Always in search of a good tomato soup, I have made this several times. I often use lower fat evaporated milk instead of cream & sometimes cut back on the oil. Next time, I will substitute fire roasted tomatoes, as suggested by some of the reviewers. ""

My 5 stars are actually for Jeff's first episode! Although I did not feel an allegiance to anyone during "Food Network Star", Jeff proved that he (with his production team) is a perfect choice. One would never know this was his first show! The time was filled so well: site visits, personal stories, several interesting recipes, & a great way of co...

I love Bobby Flay, his shows, and his recipes. He is one of my favorite celebrity chefs, not only for his food, but for his personality and professionalism. However, I agree with those who questioned the impact of the mustard in this recipe. I followed the directions, but thought I had made a mistake. The flavor was so strange and unpleasant...I...

This is a flavorful rendition of non-mayo potato salad, although the recipe is slightly confusing. The bunches of herbs I buy are too large for this amount of oil, so I used personal judgment in deciding the amount to use. The recipe makes reference to both parsley/basil puree & herb oil. When I made the recipe, the substance created with the oil "

The dressing is acceptable if you like a strong tarragon/dijon flavor. However, the lettuce was worse than a tasteless popsicle! The texture was disgusting. As an experienced cook, I wonder if there is an error in the recipe. I found it in a magazine, then checked on this website to find there were no differences. I tried eating the salad, but ev"

Sandra Lee is successful, cute, and probably a lovely person. Her tablescapes are clever and often inspiring. However, TOMATO SOUP in lasagne frightens me! I thought Sandra had more class than that. One might better eat Franco American canned spaghetti. I will give Sandra the benefit of the doubt & assume she created this recipe before her involvement...
