βOMG.............really good potatoes! Probably the BEST whipped potatoes I've EVER had! I loved that you could do the prep, then pop in the oven on Thanksgiving, which is when we ate them. The flavor was delicious with the addition of the garlic. When I pulled them out of the oven, my hubby swooned....they were complete with puffed encircled edge.... β

βFigured with 841 5-star reviews this would be the perfect PP....wrong! Should have read MANY more reviews! Thought the crust pre-bake was strange. I used a Sugar Baby pumpkin which I roasted/pureed, but after making the mixture, I ended up with @ least an extra cup of the filling leftover......could have used a deep dish pie. Plus the filling was... β

βHmm, I was just looking for a way to "empty" my freezer of fruit my husband wasn't using for smoothies. I only had 2 lbs of peaches so I added strawberries & blueberries to equal 3 lbs, all frozen. Not the best recipe. First I question the use of eggs at all - no good reason. Milk/water alone would suffice as a liquid to the flour. Plus the tasted... β

βExcellent! Nice and lemony/quick and easy! For those who think too little sauce, too much pasta.......Scampi sauce SHOULD JUST dress the pasta, [like dressing on a salad], NOT swimming in it! AND....... in case you all have not read a pasta box recently, there is NO POUND of pasta anymore......most are 13.25. And if you disagree with me, go check... β

βPlease realize, the ONLY change I made on this recipe was to bake it in a 9" square casserole, which may have allowed for my so-so feeling for the recipe. My husband liked it a lot. I guess I would just prefer fried eggs, sausage, and cheese grits on the side as usual......I want to taste the flavor of each item individually. IMHO this recipe just... β

βThis was tasty.....made A LOT.....more than a 3.5 qt.casserole! I had to change it to a 9"x13" baking pan. I did not use a Rotisserie chicken. Instead I opted for a pack of boneless chicken thighs  which I poached/deboned and utilized the resulting broth for the recipe. Also exchanged Herbes de Provence for Thyme and Crimini mushrooms for the white... β

βFlavorful muffins all through. I used frozen strawberries, blueberries and a frozen banana I had on hand in the freezer which I allowed to thaw a bit. All came together well. I baked in Texas sized papers/tin  for 38 minutes and came out perfectly. Loved the nuts in them as well. β

βSuper deliciosa! Maybe it's not fair to comment since I used neither Emeril's essence nor his sauce recipe. However, I love a specific bottled sauce and his filling recipe was the main objective IMHO. You also needed a larger casserole than 2 qt. I used a 4 qt. So, so good, my hubby took the leftovers to work :( Thanks Emeril! β
"Delicious, quick/easy, and just the right amount of chewiness! Gotta say I doubled the recipe knowing from all of Jamie's past recipes, we'd love them. I baked in a 9X13 cake pan @ the same timing and they came out great. I did sub slivered almonds, Cheerios, and most importantly, I just happened to have Almond butter [healthier] in my pantry so u"
"I just love Jamie's no-nonsense and informative and easy going style! This was a great salad/side and adds another dimension to the usual Summer salads/sides. It's fresh, light, tangy. I used my homegrown Roma tomatoes instead of Grape, and only had a fresh lemon so I subbed that instead of lime juice. We had it with grilled chicken.....hubby love"
"I made this exactly as written.........I keep all those ingredients in my pantry. This was a very moist, fudgy, intensely flavored cake. We normally get tired of a 9x13 sized cake after a few days, however we kept this covered in the frig and ate it up completely. It actually tasted even better at the end. I was not crazy about the frosting - I th"
"So flavorful! The ingredients all complimented each other so well. I used green grapes and followed to a T. I served with basic Parmesan Risotto and the flavors just went so well together. This would be fabulous to serve guests. They'll be surprised by the grapes. "
"Well except for the fact that FN messed up the directions AGAIN [should have read 9x13 pan] these came out really tasty. Thanks to everyone who trial by error helped the rest of us find that find out that issue or we all would have wasted expensive ingredients! I believe the people who are having issues with these coming out hard may have cooked t"
