Olive Garden's Pasta E Fagioli

Olive Garden's Pasta E Fagioli

Great version! My old recipe, that I lost, used bay leaves. I made this just as directed though and it was Wonderful! My husband only like creamy soups but LOVED this one! Great for winter! Thanks for sharing!! — jwedzee 12/19/2011
Raspberry Pecan Thumbprints

Raspberry Pecan Thumbprints

Not great. It was flat and not all that flavorful. I will probably keep looking for a different recipe to try. 12/19/2011
Wild Mushroom Risotto

Wild Mushroom Risotto

First 5 star rating! Absolutely amazing dish! I didn't have arborio rice so used brown rice. It took about 2 C more stock and about double the cooking time at the end (adding 0.5C) at a time. The flavor is perfect and I didn't no wouldn't add or delete a thing! Thanks for sharing!!! — stevemur 12/19/2011

Kristen's Baked Artichoke Spinach Dip

Made this again last night for a holiday party, and all of the guests raved! One person was hesitant to try it because she didn't like cooked spinach, but she did, and loved it. I am happily passing on the recipe (and due credit!). Thanks again!!!!! — ItsSunshyn 12/16/2011
Olive Garden Salad and Dressing

Olive Garden Salad and Dressing

Ack. Not even close to OG, and it really isn't good. I am not sure what I am missing, but most people think it's good, although I do agree with the few that this is not good at all. I am putting it in the fridge for a few hours in the hopes that it will help. One reviewer mentioned that it does, and since I used dried herbs, perhaps it needs time for the flavors to meld? — hanan@home 12/13/2011
Scalloped Potatoes and Ham

Scalloped Potatoes and Ham

Excellent! I needed to add a little More flour because my first batch was a bit soupy, but it tasted delicious! I used a turkey ham, and with this recipe, I actually did not need any salt! I also added 2 cloves of minced garlic to the/milk/onion mixture. Yum! — gammaron 12/12/2011
Chinese Pepper Steak

Chinese Pepper Steak

This was delicious! I too messed up the marinade because I ended up using the ginger in it, but I grated more and it was excellent! Leftovers were great too. I put some EVOO in a heated pan, geared the meat through, and tossed with noodles For a great variation! 12/12/2011
Sour Cream Sugar Cookies

Sour Cream Sugar Cookies

You really have to add 5-6 cups of flour so it isn't sticky. It ended up tasting like flour or bread dough. Perhaps less sour cream might help? — kelleywood 12/12/2011
Chris' Fire Roasted Stuffed Bell Peppers

Chris' Fire Roasted Stuffed Bell Peppers

Tastes great! I skipped a few steps (like par and flash boiling) and still turned out great. I nixed the salt and pepper by accident, but it was still so flavorful!!! — swibirun 12/7/2011
St Louis Toasted Ravioli

St Louis Toasted Ravioli

Excellent and easy snack! I used cheese and spinach ravioli that came pre made at the grocery store. I would definitely use the salt with the Italian breadcrumbs for flavor and dusting with parm is a definite must! Will try again for a Christmas eve app party! 12/3/2011
Classic Tuna Noodle Casserole

Classic Tuna Noodle Casserole

This was great! I was pinched for time so I made the soup, mixed in the ingredients (minus cheese) and then tossed in wheat egg noodles and it was awesome! My three year old, who typically doesn't like "saucy" noodles, loved it! I also made it another time with chicken. Yum!! — stevemur 12/2/2011
The Best Beef Stroganoff

The Best Beef Stroganoff

Really great! I found this recipe on here almost a year ago and have made it several times since, and just getting around to reviewing! I too use shallots, whole grain egg noodles and Greek yogurt instead for a more healthful version, but both ways taste amazing! I also add about 2T of white cooking wine priorto adding the yogurt. Bring to a boil to vurn off alcohol, then add yogurt. Thanks for posting and sharing this! — sunnyd36 11/28/2011
Kristen's Baked Artichoke Spinach Dip

Kristen's Baked Artichoke Spinach Dip

Yum! Thanks to the reviewers! I reduced the salt and am glad I did (used cracked sea salt). I also replaced half the parm with fontina cheese (reminds me of melting pot) and I didn't have bread on hand so used tortilla chips. This was great! Thanks! — ItsSunshyn 11/28/2011
Chicken Tortilla Soup ala Steve

Chicken Tortilla Soup ala Steve

Absolutely awesome! I found this recipe a year ago on BigOven and make it regularly. It freezes well too! Very easy, low calorie, and tasty! — stevemur 11/18/2011

Glad you liked the Wild Mushroom Risotto! Although to make a true risotto in the traditional Italian style, you really must use Arborio rice. (Also, I noticed you liked my Chicken Tortilla soup -- your true first 5-star rating!) Anyway, thanks much and happy cooking.
