"Nothing fancy and yes this is a bit bland...but it was inexpensive, made leftovers, paired well with chicken and basically got the job done and it was super quick to make -- great for busy family weeknights. I definitely will make this again for a quick easy meal!"

"I have always been afraid to make Ile Flottante b/c of the caramel. First time I did this, the sugar hardened too much and I had to throw it out. But I gave it another try...actually following Julia Child's recipe suggestion and it turned out perfect. Everything else was pretty easy but very time consuming. The classic children's dessert, this"
"Because of the other reviews I cut the salt in half...but my kids loved these cookies -- most of all they were really fun to make...nothing can beat a good old fashioned chocolate chip cookie with pecans though!! Thanks for the recipe!"
"Rave reviews every time I make this and so incredibly easy to put together. It doesn't get any easier. I use this recipe every year for our Super Bowl party and people really do go nuts for it. I put the spice rub (from the bbq chicken recipe) all over my ribs or chicken or both! and then I coat everything with the tangy mop sauce, throw it in t"
"Throw out all your other brownie recipes and don't bother trying any new ones. I have never found any other recipe that even comes close to these. These brownies are the best I have ever had -- everyone raves about them. This is the ultimate brownie now and forever!! Thank you so much Ina!"
"These cookies are so good. Here's what I would suggest though: do not slice them to thick -- keep it thin for a crisp cookie. Use a sharp knife to slice them too or they will fall apart. After dipping them in chocolate, place them on wax paper on a cookie sheet so they don't stick. My kids loved these and so did I -- they have a lovely texture"
"Amazing recipe for a brisket sauce. I get rave reviews every time I make this -- my man is a Texan and he absolutely loves it. And the thing is, this is so incredibly easy to put together. It just doesn't get any easier. Sure you can use a smoker which is awesome but I just dump everything in the slow cooker and Voila! Dinner is done!"
"Perfect macaroni salad -- mild, just the right amount of creaminess, perfectly portable for a picnic -- even my kids loved this -- i used to make pat and gina neelys which is also very good -- but this recipe is now my favorite for sure! "
"Really good potato salad -- but really, any potato salad is good as long as you cook the potatoes correctly -- do not take your eyes off them for a minute or they will get too soft. I made this for Memorial Day along with all the other American food classics. I made Ina's angel food cake, then cut it up into pieces and made a type of trifle with"
"There's no way you can screw up Eton Mess; so every variation is always good and this one is wonderful too! Everybody is so crazy for choclate these days that it's really nice to see other types of desserts making a comeback. My favorite dessert is English (British) strawberries with lovely creamy Nestle or perhaps Devon cream with a bit of cast"
"Bobby Flay's recipes? I say "Mmmmmmmm" and so does everyone else. Enought said!"
"So disappointed! Wow, I can't believe the 5 star reviews on this one. I have been cooking for over 15 years and am an excellent cook -- I mean I have loved to cook since I was a kid -- it's my thing. And I cook a beautiful knock your socks off roast chicken. Because I love Ina's recipes and have all her books, I decided to give this one a try "
"Absloutely loved this. I was a bit concerned that it was going to be too heavy and cloying but everyone loved it. It really complimented our beautiful irish meal -- hearty irish lamb stew with mashed potatoes, champ, the irish soda bread and to finish everything off; a decadent chocolate irish whisky cake. The kids made honey cookies and decora""
"These were so easy and so much fun to make -- perfect for a kid birthday party or superbowl party! I did have the same issue with the peanut butter being a bit too thin so I would suggest adding a bit more confectioners sugar or brown sugar until you get a firmer consistency. These were really really great -- very pleased with the outcome and ea""
"Best pizza dough recipe I've ever used -- use it for calzones too. This is quick, easy and fun -- much more efficient than other pizza dough recipes -- comes out perfect every time! Thank you Jamie -- I can call off the dogs now -- the search is over!!""
"This should be so easy to make but it was a total flop. I do not know what happened here. I followed the directions exactly and it never would set even overnight. I had to throw everything out. Complete waste of ingredients. I'm going to try Ina's recipe instead. Sorry Giada, normally I love your recipes but this one just did not work out!""
"This was delicious and I'm so glad it turned out because I have tried panna cotta before only to have a big flop on my plate! This does take quite a bit of cold refrigeration to get it to set so you may want to use a bit more gelatin but I adhered to the recipe and found that it worked beautifully. It absolutely slips down your throat and doesn'""
"Just okay. Ellie is one of my favorite chefs -- I love her healthy takes on food and most of the time I rave about her recipes but this one didn't quite cut it for me. I guess I got spoiled by Giada's awesome biscotti recipe! At any rate, this is very good but it is not really sweet and I simply could not get it to come together -- it was so dr""
"I have wanted to try this recipe ever since I first saw Giada bake it with her Aunt -- I made a few substitutions but the results were still outstanding -- my kids loved it -- my man loved it -- and so did I! this is now on the permanent rotation. If you don't like this there is definitely something not right! Really though, this was very easy ""
"This recipe is so completely satisfying and delicious -- it is definitely one of my favorites. I also like david rocco's recipe for this -- especially breaking the raw egg on top -- but Nigella's version is my favorite. Hands down -- this is a winner!""
"I have had this recipe in my arsenal for almost three years now and I just tried it tonight -- all I can say is WOW WOW WOW. This is definitely one of the best chicken tortilla soups I have ever tasted. The number of ingredients looks daunting but I found that this was very easy and quick to make. I made substitutions where necessary and it tur""
"A new favorite! It does not get easier than this -- seriously! I would never have thought to pair artichoke hearts and shrimp but this was absolutely awesome. I put this together with the crushed potatoes (also wonderful and so simple and the simple salad presto! I'm a very busy Mom and I really appreciate when a chef puts together something s""
