"Disappointing. It wasn't bad per se, as the meat was juicy, but I didn't find it as flavorful as I'd hoped.

This was better cold the next day. "

"These potatoes are delicious! I used the oven method. As a personal family preference, I used Rosemary instead of Sage, and lots of garlic for me! I paired it with Jamie Deen's Crispy Chicken Cutlets, and a Caprese Salad. Great combination! "

Sunday, Nov 17, 2013 on

I am giving this 3 stars because I don't think it's fair to give a bad rating based on the taste buds of my family and I. I can see how people would go crazy for this, but we want to taste shrimp, crab and butter. It was too "tangy" for us. I love Emeril and will continue to enjoy his TV shows.

Reviewed Yummiest Ever Baked Mac and Cheese

Tuesday, Jul 24, 2012 on

"I will never use another mac & cheese recipe. I made this for my daughter's grad party. It went so quickly, she didn't even get any. The pan was scraped clean. I used Cavatappi instead of elbows. They hold the sauce better. Never thought I'd use cheese soup in mac & cheese. This was rich, creamy & gooey."

Wednesday, Feb 29, 2012 on

"This was an unexpected pleasure.

I used Cippolini onions and a few carrots for sweetness. I also thickend the gravy a little.
I beat the potatoes with milk, butter & cheese.

When the potato skins were crisp, I scooped 2 Tablespoons of mashed potatoes into each skin, and topped them with the beef stew. My husband and I will make these""

"Very good! Having read both Paula & Bobby's reviews, I chose to microwave the bacon first for a minute. Baked for 20 minutes (give or take depending on bacon), sprinkled parm & garlic, cooled 5 minutes & not soggy at all! My husband and kids loved them. Gotta love these taste taster's of mine! They even tasted good when they cooled completel""

Reviewed Sausage and Broccoli Rabe

Saturday, May 28, 2011 on

"Really good! So easy! First time I made it, I used mild sausage, but this time I'm using hot & sweet. Of course, being a garlic lover, I add a couple cloves once the sausage is cooked. Next time I'll toss in some white beans and cooked pasta. "

Reviewed Quick and Easy Pickles

Monday, Feb 14, 2011 on

"These were so good and so easy! I used to go to a restaurant that had THE best pickles. I've never come across anything even close to how good they were. This is it! I like pickles that are garlicky with a lot of Dill flavor, but not too salty or sour. You can make these however you like! No sour taste, and very crunchy. I did the same as the reviewer below...left them on the counter and then refrigerated. I even saved the brine. Maybe I'll throw some tomato slices in there! Yum.
