Dinner doesn't get any quicker or easier than this. Good flavor. I didn't know how much "2 bunches" of basil was, as I grow my own. I threw a bunch into the processor and pureed. There seemed to be too much oil left in the processor, so I added several more leaves and it turned out fine.

Replied to drop biscuits

This is a simple biscuit recipe. If you have been baking for 40 years I would think you'd realize you could use a pastry cutter or two knives instead. Kind of harsh to give the recipe one star.

Couldn't be any easier and they taste great. Seems like not all supermarkets carry the peanut butter cookie dough, but I was able to find it at the second store I went to. As Ree mentioned, they do tend to stick. I used Pam baking spray, but a few still stuck. Next time I might try using Crisco.

I made these and the beans were still swimming in liquid after five hours. I didn't have a lot of extra time, so I took the lid off and turned the oven up a bit and left them in for another 1/2 hour. Still too much liquid. I had to serve them, but they would have been much better if the liquid had gotten thicker. The liquid tasted great, just way "

This was quite good and the family enjoyed it. Would definitely make again. Next time I think I'll use more cheese on top."

Easy, fast, and tasty! I used my Vitamix blender and it was big enough. One jalepeno was pretty mild, so if you like your salsa spicy you might want to use two. Will definitely make again."

These came out great! (They are especially tasty when still warm from the oven.) Very moist. Love the topping. I thought they had a lot of orange flavor. For those who said they didn't taste enough orange, did you use store bought orange juice? If so, you might want to try squeezing your own next time. Store bought doesn't have nearly as much flav"

I was excited to try this recipe, but got a little worried after reading the reviews. I had no problems and mine came out great. I halved the recipe and used a 2-1/2 quart crock pot (mine is pretty old). I used white candy melts instead of the almond bark. Because of the reviews I stirred mine after two hours. At that point I decided to add more s"

Very good soup. I halved the recipe since there is just two of us. I used an immersion blender to make it smooth. The soup was a little too thick and rich for me. Next time I will either swap out the half and half and use all milk and/or add some chicken stock. Will definitely make again!""

Very tasty BBQ sauce! I made this to use with pulled pork and it came out great. I lowered the amount of vinegar and chipotle a bit. I'll be making this again to use on grilled sausage and chicken.""
