    Excellent!

    Nicole McAfee from Frisco, TX

    This salad was the favorite part of my meal! That raspberry vinegar makes the salad. I used canned mandarin oranges instead of the oranges called for and added other types of lettuce (romaine) with the spinach. I'll make this again for company.

    Lucille Landry from Red Bank, NJ

    This macaroni & cheese casserole was the best tasting I've ever made not to mention quick & easy. I don't like to add eggs so this recipe is perfect! The only thing I might change up in the future is the types of cheese I use other than that, this recipe is a keeper, you won't be dissapointed!

    Absolute Winner!

    MM Maureen from Chicago

    I am not a cook...at all...and was asked to bake a homemade dish of mac and cheese. I was so nervous but it was a smashing success! I made it two more times within the month and brought it to more parties...It's so delicious and rich. I actually added some extra sharp cheddar cheese and it was really so darn tasty!

    YUMMY!

    Renee Willis from Livermore, CA

    I have been craving homemade macaroni & cheese so was thrilled that I found this easy sounding recipe. It was all that I had hoped for! Very creamy and delicious. I mixed bread crumbs with the cheese for the top for a nice crunch. My husband is still talking about how good it was with dinner tonight! I added the recipe to my recipe box and will definitely be making this again! :)

    Comfort Food

    Kenneth Johns from Chatsworth, GA

    My wife loves macaroni and cheese, in fact it would not be a lie to say she adores it and so does everyone else in my family. This is the best recipe for this dish that I have found, although I do modify it a bit for individual tastes at times but ALWAYS using Carnation evaporated milk! Other brands of evaporated milk just don't taste right and some are just downright awful.

    Virginia Comfort

    Sarah Hunnel from , Virginia

    Found this recipe in a cook book after craving homemade macaroni and cheese for months, and it really hit the spot. It was really simple and easy to make, although I have found that it turns out better when you use extra sharp cheddar instead of just sharp. Depending on casserole dish size, more cheese may be needed for topping it. Overall, LOVE this recipe, I make it all the time!

    Patricia DiMucci from Conneaut Lake, Pennsylvania

    I try a lot of new recipes, this one has it all. It tastes great, it uses pantry staples, is easy, quick, and can be modified to go from everyday simple to guest ready in minutes. You can add canned tomatoes, meats and/or veggies with the macaroni and just cook a little longer.

    not enough noodles

    Taine' Abdullah from Indianapolis, IN

    I thought it was pretty good. I have a family that loves mac and cheese and they would not even touch it. I was very disappointed. IT should have called for more noodles. I said if I would try again I would try more noodles. IT was too watery.

    Awesome mac and cheese

    Cynthia Dutil from Augusta, ME

    This macaroni and cheese is great. I didn't have quite enough cheddar cheese when I made this but I happened to have some monterey jack cheese and parmesan cheese so I put those cheeses in it. I also added some ham to this. This macaroni and cheese turned out so creamy and delicious. This recipe is a keeper. I can't wait to make it again.

    Brooke Seeger from Delta Junction, AK

    I loved this recipe. I didn't do the last step of baking it with the cheese on top for lack of time, but it still tasted great. I think I will use half the salt required because it tasted a little salty to me (don't know if the last step of baking helps with that). But it was a sure winner.

    Not what I expected!

    Nicole Emel from RANSOMVILLE, NY

    I made this really having high hopes because of the great reviews but I was REALLY disappointed! It was, to say the least, AWFUL! It was more of an extreemly bland cream sauce rather than a cheese sauce. I even tried to add more cheese but the milk flavor took over.

    Excellent!!

    Dawn from South Carolina

    Wonder, quick, and easy to prepare sandwich for lunch or dinner! My husband is use to plain jane sandwiches, so this was a real treat! The flavors are wonderful together. I did find it tricky to butter one side of the bread and then flip it over to add the chutney, but I guess practice makes perfect!! I grilled them the first time and they were great! The second time I tried to toast the bread... BAD CALL!! This is meant to be grilled, fat and all!!

    Variation of Cookie Bars

    Shanna Warrenfeltz from HAGERSTOWN, MD

    This is simple and easy. One thing I've done to make them a little more special is use a bag of chocolate chips, and spread over bars about 2 minutes before they are done baking. Then, use a spatula, and spread the melted chips over the bars like icing. Once the chocolate hardens again, cut and serve. Everyone loves them!

    No Sweat Cookie Bars

    Pam Camilleri from Sharbot Lake, ON

    I had a event to attend and very little time to bake so I hopped on you sight and voila there it was...Now sweat. They were an absolute hit at the event and my friends had a great laugh. I am noted as making everything from scratch and make my friend envious. This was something they could do as well. Thanks again. Oh, I think I found some more people to join in on your sight. That's how impressed they were.

    Many children and adults enjoy Chocolate Cookie Cake. This is a quick way to create a favorite and it tastes like it is homemade.

    Shaped works too!

    Mona Blake from DAVENPORT, IA

    If you allow the dough to soften for about 20 minutes at room temperature, you can place the dough in a greased, shaped pan!

    Not as good as homemade

    Susan Campbell from GRASS LAKE, MI

    There is no way that packaged cookie dough has the taste--and love--of homemade. It is slightly faster than measuring ingredients, but the flavor is just ok.

    very fast, easy, and tastes good. we have made this recipe many years, but we call them pan cookies. try adding some white chocholate chips and a 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts.

    I remembered seeing this recipe when my friend called and told me she would be dropping with her children later in the day. I popped these in the oven while I straightened my house for guests. By the time my guests arrived, I had a clean house, coffee, milk, and a whole batch of warm cookies!
