βLove, love, love the carne asada. The marinade was spot on! Didn't have time to make the pesto, so I used guacamole. Didn't have time to make the salso, so I used store bought, but still got rave reviews from my family. Will definitely make again! Love Jeff and Sandwich King Show. WE need more episodes. Kepp them coming, Jeff!!e β

βExcellent. Cut back on the chili peppers and hot sauce as some people in my family can't take the heat, and it was wonderful. It's my go-to sloppy joe recipe now. Good ridence to the canned stuff. You did it again, Ree! Love your recipes and show! <3 β

βExcellent sauce! Ten thousand times more superior than the packaged type that you mix with milk on the stove. Those days for me are over. Because I cut the recipe in half, I just used my mini kitchen food processor. This recipe is foolproof, fabulous and perfect over eggs benedict, asparagus or fish! β

βIna's recipes are always very tasty and foolproof, and this gratin is no exception! Excellent! Next time, I'll cook my cauliflower a little less. It should be somewhat al dente before baking. Keep them coming, Ina. You make me look like a rock star! β
Reviewed Pork Chops with Applesauce and Grits

βThis applesauce sauce is out of this world delicious! I did not make the grits, and my family likes our pork chops breaded, fried and then finished off in the oven, so that's what I did. Then I cleaned out the pan and make the applesauce sauce. I used applesauce from a jar as a time saver. At first I thought it would be too vinegar-y, but as it... β
"Ina, you rock! This polenta did turn out picture perfect! You make me look like a rockstar! Thanks. I did modify the printed recipe. I used 1 cup instant polenta, 2 cups half and half, 2 cups of chicken broth. I thought I had fresh rosemary, but it was parsley! Oh, no! I used dried rosemary, and it was still delicious. You are my trusted "
"Fantastic soup! Today I didn't have brandy, so I substituted a little red wine and worstershire sauce. Now my go-to cream of mushroom soup. Thanks, Emeril!"
"This was incredibly delicious and easy! So convenient to put it together the night before and just pop it in the oven in the morning. That's my kind of easy morning entertaining! I used some Italian bread I had that was really on its way out, but this totally transformed it. Thanks, Ree! This is an excellent recipe! I will make it often!"
"This is a great basic recipe. I added chopped fresh rosemary, fresh sage and fresh thyme in equal amounts to the parsley. I also "kicked up" the bread. I used half of good country style bread that I had made in my bread machine and half Rosemary Artisian Bread from my grocer. I removed all the crust before drying, and it really, really added t"
"Favorite dish at the Thanksgiving table! I used regular milk in lieu of the evaporated -- worked well. Also, my granddaughter thinks she doesn't like coconut, so I left that out, and I used pecans instead of cashews, but it was fantastic! Thanks, Pat & Gina!""
"I was a big fan of Ina Garten's ranch dressing, but move over, Ina! Ree's version is much better and is now my go-to ranch! Instead of doing that mincing of the garlic and salt, I just grated a clove or garlic on my microplane and added salt. It was a big hit with all! I can't wait for Ree's show to come back to Foodnetwork. This gal's a winn""
"Another winner, Ina! Just tasting it out of the bowl, it does taste salty, but I'm going to go with another person's comment that it's not as salty when put over greens. I used Kosher salt. Maybe I should have used table salt??? Also, I inadvertantly bought flavored Greek yogurt! So I substituted sour cream. Just as good! Anyway, the flavor""
"Kelsey, I love your show!! You are a winner in my book. The deviled eggs were the best ever. I've thrown out my old, average deviled egg recipe, and your kicked up deviled eggs are my go-to recipe forever more! Keep those good recipes coming! ""
"I thought these were the best biscuit ever!! I did add salt and pepper to my recipe. Mine were a bit on the large side and took a bit longer to cook, but when they came out of the oven -- yummy! My husband wasn't a fan of the crispy bottom, but that was my favorite part!
