This was so refreshing and tasted delicious. The prosecco was perfect to spritz it up and tone down the sweetness. Yum! You are first class GZ!

These were good. I used flax meal in with the flour instead to amaranth. I used the special dark Hershey chips just to for ease. I also did half almonds and half walnuts. Very good base recipe to sub in what you like.

Marcella never disappoints me! Love her stuff. Always full of flavor and fresh. I was shocked to hear you don't like cumin. I grew my own pablanos and Serranos last year. Can't wait to use my own in this recipe.

This was a hit! I used the velveeta blanco. That seem to be a favorite over the classic. I browned the hot sausage in a skillet and dumped all other ingredients in my crock. Mixed in the cooked sausage and let it go until game time. Then I kept it on warm. This was easier for me so I wouldn't have watch it on the stove. "

These were really delicious. I used puff pastry and baked them on 400 until golden brown. I like the puff pasty and I didn't need to fry. It did take awhile to cool the filling and you have to be really careful with the inside because it will burn your mouth. "

This was so good. I read the reviews before I made it so I was cautious not to add to much water. I toasted whole almonds then added them to my processor to grind before adding flour. I only ended up adding 2 tablespoon of water and it was perfect. The cream is delicious. Great pudding recipe. Nice spring and summer dessert. "

These were so good. The sauce was delicious. They were challenging to make. My peppers were so soft that when I tried to get the seeds out they just split all the way. I had to put tooth picks to keep them together. They were still so full of flavor. I wanted a little heat and smokiness so I used 3 pepper Colby jack cheese and smoked gruyere. The "

Wow, my husband loved this chicken. I used no salt pretzels and seasoned my chicken to control the salt. I also used canola and olive oil in my cast iron skillet to brown on one side then flipped it and finished in the oven on 325 for 20 min. Really tender. I also split the cheddar with smoked gruyere because it's my husbands favorite. The sauce w"

I made this for valentines dinner. It was one of my husband's favorite of the whole meal. I changed it up a bit. I did make it with a spring mix and spinach combo greens and made it more of a cool salad.

I made the meatballs for the pizza so I have not made the sauce yet. I used Jenny-o spicy turkey links and just removed the meat from the casting and ground round. These meatballs were incredible. Moist and full of flavor and tender. The size and cook time were perfect so they did not over cook. This will be great for lasagna meat. "
