Saw this recipe and made it last night. I think the orange zest is what gave it a unique flavor that made this the best french toast ever (other recipes taste flat and boring). I also like the idea of the raspberry preserves on the side-that also added an interesting layer of flavor. This is my go-to recipe from now on. Also, I didn't have challah,...

These cookies are amazing, soft and delicious. I have made three times already.

Oct 22, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Really delicious. One of the best salads I've ever had. I also added goat cheese, which added another layer of flavor. Then I added some halved grape tomatoes (since I had some on hand I needed to get rid of).

Oct 9, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Very good. Takes a long time to make but that is expected of lasagna. The leftovers taste even better than the original day. I added a bay leaf, fresh thyme, a small carrot and 1/2 a celery stick to my marinara sauce. Yummy. I too wish that they had instructions for proper reheating, as I was serving this to guests. Thanks.

This was good. It was even better when I added some cinnamon and honey. Thanks Bobby for the idea!

Reviewed herbed lentils with spinach and tomatoes

Sep 23, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I enjoyed this, my husband not so much. It needed something, and after I added goat cheese, it was much better. It just needs a bit of flair from cheese I think. Only then it won't be vegan.

Reviewed crostini with tuna tapenade

Sep 22, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This was very good. My husband and I just ate it with crackers for lunch. I didn't add any salt to the mixture, and did not have mascarpone and just used reduced fat cream cheese. It was delicious.

Sep 2, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I used some of the filling for the flour tortillas as suggested. But we used some of the filling in corn tortillas and added chicken and fried them to make flautas. That was very good! I did not use all the cream cheese suggested.

Aug 26, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I had some leftover corn that I planned so that I could use this recipe. This was good. I added some turmeric and yellow bell pepper and eggplant I had available.

Jul 29, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This is the best sangria ever. We have made it 10+ times. We usually make six times the recipe for a big party and it's always a hit. We skip the sparkling water, and we use Riunite for the red wine. I have tried several other sangria recipes and this one tops them all. Thanks Emeril!

Reviewed coconut water smoothie with mango, banana and strawberries

Jul 15, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I love using coconut water in my smoothies, to make them dairy free. I skip the yogurt when I want them to be vegan. I haven't tried freezing the coconut water into cubes. Interesting idea.

I also added mango, OJ, and some non-dairy milk for my liquids. Yummy, tasted very tropical.

Reviewed french dipped sandwiches

Apr 28, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

It was okay. It tasted like it should be part of a fall meal with pumpkin pie on the side. My husband said it was sweet even though there was no sugar in it, just the seasonings were reminiscent of fall desserts. I won't be making again. Thanks though. It was the first pot roast I ever cooked. I made it in the slow cooker rather than bake it.

Apr 23, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Excellent smoothie. I buy fresh squeezed OJ from my grocery store when available. Otherwise I just use regular OJ. The squeeze of lime adds another yummy level of flavor. Peel your old browning bananas and pop them in the freezer and your drink will already be cold and ready to serve.
I love smoothies-I wouldn't get my servings of fruit without...

Good recipe, I also added broccoli to the leeks. I didn't have a shallot on hand so I used a small garlic clove and about 2 TB yellow onion chopped fine. And I didn't have fresh parsley, so I used dried.

Great recipe. I had frozen corn on hand that I just sauteed on the stove. I didn't have cotija or queso fresco but I did have feta which is an excellent substitution. I also used the sour cream. I'm going to make it again this weekend grilling the corn. This tastes excellent. I am surprised more people haven't tried it."

This was pretty good. I didn't care for the cardamom flavor.
You can buy this spice in the bulk section of your grocery store so you won't have to buy a whole bottle of cardamom when you try the recipe.
I prefer Anne Burrell's oatmeal cookies."
