    "Delicious. Made by request and whole family enjoy it. I halved the recipe but added nearly the full amount of cream (actually used half & half). I will use heavy creme next time to see it that will make a difference in the amount used. In any case, YUM! Thanks Rita!"

    "This is outstanding and company worthy. The only substitution I made was to use dried cherries in place of dried cranberries. I would also recommend using a thick chicken breast (adjusting cooking time accordingly), slice to serve (as shown in Just Jan's photo). This is labor intensive but well worth the effort. Thanks a bunch for sharing!"

    "Per Chef Adrienne, DO NOT dilute the frozen juice concentrate. "I have made this punch many times and have never diluted the concentrates. The punch is made to be sweet (after all it was for a soap opera human doll child ). There is more than enough ginger ale (a full 2 liter bottle) as well as cranberry juice cocktail (a quart) to handle it ..."

    "T D F!!!! This is so good my world has been rocked to the core! So simple to throw together and extremely tasty! I used only 1/2 # of pasta but all the other ingredients as listed. I prefer using hot Italian sausage and it was not spicy because the mascarpone tamed any heat, so don't be afraid to try it. I used 1 teaspoon of dried oregano i..."

    "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 ..."
