"This soup was delicious! It was so rich, I can't believe it had no dairy in it. I made the RR Curry Powder instead of using my own because, as an East Indian, I know that all curry powders can be very different. I ended up using a ton of it and it really paid off. The only downside is that my sheet pans are now stained yellow with the tumeric so I"
"This was hands down delicious. I could not believe how relatively easy it was. If I would change anything, I would probably leave out the potatoes and just use rice to soak up the goodness -- I used two potatoes and that was plenty. Definitely this will be a standard in our home. Go Grandpa!""
"This was fine overall. The soup was on the thin side, even with 2 cups less liquid than was called for in the recipe and the italian sausage just overwhelmed the whole taste of the soup. I have made better lentil soups with other recipes and would prefer those to this one.
"For some reason, I just didn't get this one. I followed all of the directions, but found it fatty and bland and the cweetness was cloying. I served it over egg noodles which was ok and then served it over polenta the second time around which was a bit better. ""
"My husband made this this weekend for brunch. He used 6 pieces of bacon but still thought it was bacon-heavy. Overall, it was on the too-spicy side (and he likes his food spicy). The recipe really cried out for another creamy element (sour cream or yogurt) which he ended up using when eating leftovers. Overall, would make again. "
"This was enough to feed an army (my husband was tired of braised pork after day #5 :-)) but was a good method. The final braising liquid was still very watery after cooking for the length of time and it would have taken a very long time to really thicken it and concentrate the flavors a bit more -- if I make this again, I would definitely cut the "
"I usually love RR's recipes. However, this one was too smoky -- just so many elements of smokiness and it did not have anything to cut it (such as beans or a lot of veggies), so it was basically smoky sauteed meat with a cornbread topping. Like the idea of Tamale pie, but this one did not do it for me -- not enough balance of flavors. "
"I usually love RR's recipes but did not care for this one. The broken spaghetti lent a textural element that I did not care for and detracted from the comfort food element. The dish was also very fatty, with the skin on thighs as recommended, so the chicken did not soak up the sauce. Also the dish in general was not as flavorful as her dishes usua"
"This was surprisingly rich and delicious. I could not believe how close it was to the usual steakhouse-with-cream version while being so relatively low fat. I used 2 big shallots and did not use the canned milk. We served it with Easter dinner. Will definitely be a keeper!"
