This is sooooooooooooo good!!! I could eat this all by itself, although I made it with the Mughlai chicken. Very happy that there were leftovers to take to work for the next couple of days. Yummmmmm!!!!""

It didn't fill my craving for comfort food as the flavors stayed distinctly their own instead of mingling together. But it would be something really refreshing to eat on a hot summer's day.""

It was delicious when I tasted it right when the chicken had cooked through, but it was INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS hours later when I reheated it. Definitely a keeper!!!!""

Very easy, simple and comforting. It makes a lot. I could have easily served 4 with it.

Very easy and scrumptious! I used regular apple cider. The combination of the sauce and gnocci is particularly impressive.

The nice thing about it was the ease in putting it together and the common pantry-staple ingredients. However, the result was just okay. It works if you're looking for an easy chocolate fix, but for me it didn't have a "wow" factor.

I was confused by the amount of water and chicken bullion to use and ended up using 2 cups of broth when, as another reviewer noted, we're supposed to be using 1 cup of water and 2 bullion cubes (or teaspoons of bullion). So, the result was a bit soupy; however, I mixed a little of the boiling liquid with cornstarch and returned it to the pan. It...

I let the meat marinate for several hours. I used a little more than a teaspoon of cumin and oregano, each. The next time I believe I'll increase the amount of marinade for the meat because it went a little dry when I put it all in the skillet. I used only green peppers (its what I had on hand) and used a small onion. I wished I had used more...

Very, very good! Don't scrimp on the pomegranate seeds - the loveliness of this recipe depends on all those bursts of sweetness! Definitely a keeper.

I really, really wanted to like this. The cheese overpowered the avocado. I did like the combined flavors of the jalapenos, scallions and roquefort. If I do make this again, I'll decrease the amount of cheese and see if that makes a difference.

Oh my! I made it as written and am completely happy with it just the way it is. Very good on ice cream, as a fruit dip and drizzled over pancakes. Most of it was eaten by itself with a spoon!

I will never make fudge any other way from now on. I like this stuff better than traditional fudge! Its very creamy.

The addition of scallions to my normal, rather boring cheese quesadillas made all the difference. Wow!

Comfort food, to be sure. The first time I made it as written and found the lamb to be a little greasy for my taste, even after draining the grease off - although the flavor was very nice. The second time I made it with veal and will probably use that from now on. I can my own diced tomatoes in pint jars. I use an entire pint jar in this recipe...

Very delicious and easy to make! If you only have lime juice on hand instead of lemon juice, I've found that works well, too.
