Yummy. The second time, I made this recipe, I carmalized the onions over low heat for an hour to really build the flavor. Instead of expensive guyere cheese, I did see a suggestion to mix swiss with Parmesan to get the same flavor at a lower cost. "

Fabulous. New Easter tradition for our family. My guests and family absolutely loved the lamb. For the sauce, I made a more traditional gravy in the same dutch oven pan that I cooked the lamb in. First, I used one chopped shallot instead of onion which I sauteed in the oil from pan drippings. Then I mixed 2 tablespoons of the oil from pan dr"

Yummy. Really enjoyed it with roasted leg of lamb for Easter. I wasn't sure about boiling the potatoes first but it worked out great. I think the key is too make sure the potatoes are completely dry before you roast them. I used less russet and more red potatoes. Surprisingly the sweet potatoes came out the best. My family usually does not like "

This recipe was okay. It did not have a lot of strawberry taste and needed to have sugar added. In addition, you really need to puree the strawberries or you end up with big chunks. Okay - not sure i would make it again."

Great recipe. I made a few adjustments. I choose to slow roast the prime rib at 325 F to 350 F instead starting out at a high temperature. I used beef stock instead of chicken broth and I added fennel to the veggies. The prime rib came out great but I was most impressed by the gravy I made from the juices. The gravy was so tasty with cayenne pep"

I made this recipe for a brunch party with a few adjustments. I used a pie crust and three eggs with one egg yolk. I did not boil the leek but did saute it in the bacon grease for about 8 minutes. I felt the leeks were a little stringy even though I cut the leeks small. I might substitute green onions next time. It was big hit everyone loved it "

Easy to make and very tasty. I have made twice this June and just got more peaches to make it again. The only change I would make - is to add more sugar if the peaches are not super ripe."

Awesome cake. It was moist and delicious. The cream cheese icing was so tasty - not to sweet. I cut the recipe in half and made it in a 9 x 13 pan. I had to cook it a few minutes longer but it came out fine. By mistake, I added to much vanilla to the cake but it still tasted great. I did not have enough icing to add the white stripes between the"

The chicken comes out super moist the inside and crisp on the outside. This is an easy way to make fried chicken. I have made this recipe many times and it always turns out great if you keep the oil hot. I make it in a big deep pot like Ina. I fry the breast one at time so that the oil stays hot on the other side of pot when I flip the breast. "

Awesome - very tasty and simple. The buttermilk and apple cider vinegar gave it a great tang. I used a little less than 1 tsp of sugar and little less garlic. No one in my family really likes potato salad but we all loved this one. I have tried all sorts of fancy potato salads in the past and none were as good as this simple potato salad. It w"

Wow - it is really the ultimate cheesecake! The blueberry topping was awesome! The hints of lemon in the cake and topping were a great touch. After reading a lot of reviews on the cheesecake, I decided to make it in a thick ceramic pie plate. I did put the pie plate on a baking dish with water and cooked it for 50 minutes. I let it cool in th"

My hubby and kids are not big zucchini fans so I thought this recipe might change their minds. Unfortunately I should have read the reviews first because their was way too much onion and the zucchini came out too mushy. I also thought it could use a little more flavor. Overall - I thought it was a good recipe - just not great."

Very tasty and SIMPLE. The corn is sweet and crunchy! It is also a lot easier to eat because the butter and salt are already added. I used frozen corn which I defrosted prior to cooking. Definitely will become a staple at our table. "

I liked this recipe. I usually just marinate my salmon in soy sauce so I thought the addition of dijon mustard and garlic was a nice twist. I think the key is to use a really good soy sauce then it is not as salty. I cooked my salmon in the oven and it came out great. "

Luv it!!! I made this sauce with cheaper cut of steak and it made the steak taste so delicious that my hubby thought it was expensive steak!! It would be awesome way to dress up a cheaper steaks for a dinner party. I was a little hesitant to boil the cream for so long but it turned out great!!! I only used half as much cream but still added 3-"
