Sunday, Mar 10, 2013 on

"I am hugely disappointed. These cupcakes are dry, just as so many reviewers said. I will not be making this recipe again. I'll go back to modifying the Paula Dean one."

Monday, Dec 10, 2012 on

"Yummy! Loved these & so did everyone else at my Christmas brunch. I doubled the recipe but added 3 extra clementines & cut the sugar by half a cup. I have shared the recipe a number of times & will be making again on Christmas Eve. The only other change I will make is to freeze cranberries as a garnish instead of clementine slice."

"Delicious! A definite do-over. I used Granny Smith & they cooked beautifully. I followed the recipe exactly, but think I cooked them a bit longer. They were a great addition to my Christmas brunch."

"This recipe is fabulous. The sauce is light and full of flavor. I used shrimp, scallops & lump crabmeat instead of clams & will absolutely be making it again. Giada's recipes rarely disappoint. This is a keeper."

Reviewed Italian Chopped Salad

Wednesday, Aug 15, 2012 on

"This salad is wonderful. I made it without the pasta because it was accompanying a pasta dish for my dinner party. I also added fresh corn and English cucumbers. Everyone raved about it. I can't wait to make it again."

Sunday, Jul 8, 2012 on

"Delicious bars-loved by kids & adults. I baked both layers longer than recipe called for and also made homemade caramel sauce. Have made these twice already & am certain I will make many more times. "

Friday, Aug 12, 2011 on

"I made this for a dinner party and it was a pretty big hit. I didn't brown it , but I would next time. I would also cut the lemon a bit. I thought it was a little too citrus-y""

Reviewed Three Cheese Hot Artichoke Dip

Tuesday, Jun 21, 2011 on

"I made this but used a vidalia onion instead of scallions and added a few dashes each of hot sauce and worchestershire. It was very tasty. I will try it again with sqeezed dry, chopped spinach and another cheese instead of mozzarella because it is so mild tasting. "

Sunday, Mar 20, 2011 on

"DELICIOUS! Will definitely be making these bars again and again. Huge hit at a party yesterday. Followed the recipe exactly. Perfect!"

Wednesday, Dec 8, 2010 on

"These are very tastey. I had to make few adjustments. The topping needs to be at least doubled. Also, I only used half the salt, and I still get some of the salty sweet taste. I am curious to see how these taste tomorrow. I tried them fresh from the oven.
