    "I remember my gramma making a frosting that was like marshmallow fluff. I am hoping this is it. This makes a TON of frosting. I frosted a chocolate bundt cake and had plenty left over. It's not super sweet, which is a nice change of pace. Be sure to use the WHISK attachment. Also DO NOT ADD cocoa powder, as it failed to whip up. Made for ..."

    "3/10/14 This is phenomenal frosting! I can't get over it. I didn't have any confectioners sugar so I searched out an alternative. I found this recipe via The Pioneer Woman and The trick it to beat the daylights out of it until the sugar granules disappear and the butter / sugar combo is very creamy. This takes time. The..."

    "I used to make this years ago. It's light and refreshing. Any yogurt flavor will do, I like to use lemon or raspberry. You can top with fresh berries or a fruit sauce. As mentioned by Abby Girl, defrost the Cool Whip before incorporating it into the yogurt and allow the prepared frozen pie to sit out for 1/2 to 1 hour so that it can be easil..."

    "Delicious in every way! This is a bit labor intensive so be sure to have everything prepped and ready to go. I did make some changes to the recipe. I used Israeli couscous and decided not to stuff the breasts. I sautéed the chicken breasts, finished off in the oven, then placed them on top the couscous, sprinkled with cheese & sauce. I ..."

    "The flavors are AMAZING! A beautiful dish and company worthy. I forgot to rinse the rice but all is well. I also use hearty chicken breasts, skin on, then removed the skin and cut chicken into individual portions. It turned out very moist. My paprika was smokey but not hot. My sweet bell peppers were yellow & orange. I think red would make for..."

    "The flavor is outstanding. I doubled the recipe, let it slow cook all day. YUM! I followed the recipe ingredients to a T. I quickly browned the beef but I don't think I will go to the trouble next time. I'm not sure it made much difference. Definitely a "Best Of" for 2014. Thanks for sharing!"

    "WARNING: DO NOT USE A Silpat Matt to bake cookies on! My first 2 batches of cookies flattened out and ran together. I had to cut them apart with a pizza cutter. For the 2nd two batch, I used parchment paper with better & more ideal results. I love the slight texture the oatmeal adds to the cookies. The overall flavor is great, no sweeter tha..."
