Fabulous, delicious, easy, and simple clean up. It doesn't get better than that. Great dinner for company because the sauce can all be prepped ahead of time.

Dec 30, 2013 on

This is the best lentil soup ever. My husband, son, and I could not get enough of it. We like it spicy so I doubled, and chopped, two serrano chiles into the mix. I also browned the onions, garlic, and chiles before adding the other Dal ingredients. Do not omit the spice blooming step. I tasted before this step, and the soup was good, but afterward...

This is delicious and I've made it several times. For a slightly healthier version I now replace the whipping cream with fat free Greek yogurt and the half and half with milk.

I tested this recipe on my husband tonight and we thought it was the best shrimp we have ever tasted. My challenge is that it is so good I don't know how to follow it up. And on top of it all, t...

Sep 18, 2011 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

This is one of the most delicious sauces - easy and so full of flavor. I normally wouldn't use a tomato sauce on steak but the garden is bursting with cherry tomatoes and jalapenos right now. I made the recipe exactly as written except deseeding the jalapeno. We like it spicy. What a great find. I'm going to make it for a chicken dinner late...

I served this with pork for Easter dinner and everyone asked for the recipe. The only problem was that everyone wanted to take the leftovers home so we only had enough for lunch the next day. I'm serving this again for out of town guests next week. It's my new 'go to' side dish."
