    Too much sodium

    Virginia Elliott from Texas

    When are companies going to wake up and cut the salt? It's killing people! Use NO sodium boullon. Yummy soup otherwise.

    Delicious, Rich Soup

    Marietje Hauprich from Ballston Spa, NY

    This was a fantastic soup! I'm not that into cheese and broccoli soups, but my family is so I gave this a shot, and they all loved it! To the person who said there was only 1/2 cup of wet ingredients....I think you forgot about the 3 cans of broth!

    Only one problem

    Barbara from

    The soup taste great and the time to prepare it is wonderful. My only "dislike" is mixing 2 cups of dry goods, the milk and flour, with only 1/2 cup of liquid. Almost impossible to moisten all the dry goods. Then when you drop the mound into the pot it clumps. Any suggestions? Is their an error in the amounts?

    Good Soup

    Deborah Byram from PATTERSON, CA

    I check out different broccoli cheese soup recipes as this is one of my favorite soups. This one is good. My preference would be not to have to use dry milk. I plan to try it again using real milk. But the original recipe is still very nice.

    Broccoli Cheese Soup

    Missing something

    JOY MAPLES from Land O Lakes

    We thought the soup was good but seemed to be missing something - probably butter which would make it not as healthy and low-fat. This is a great way to use up some of that big sack of broccoli we bought at a wholesale club.

    Very yummy

    Christy from Snohomish, WA

    This soup was great. It reminded me of a split pea, but with broccoli insead of peas. My husband loved it. I couldn't really taste the cheese that I added, so I wouldn't call it broccoli cheese soup, but broccoli soup. It created more dishes than I would have liked, but the soup was very good and it made good left overs. I would definitely make it again.

    I just made this while I was stuck inside in a snow storm in PA. However, I like to make things without having to go grocery shopping.

    I love cheese soups, am especially fond of broccoli so this is ideal soup for me. Also think that you could get kids to eat also as the cheese take away the taste of the broccoli somewhat. Anything that can be done to get kids to eat veggies is a good idea.

    Italian Nonni

    Baked Dijon Chicken from Huntley,Illinois

    This was very easy to prepare. I used 4 very thick chicken breasts and cut them in half. I also use Italian seasoned bread crumbs because I did not have plain bread crumbs. I think the heat was too high. I sprayed a glass pyrex 13x9 with Pam and most of my breading stuck to the pan. I also had the rack in the middle of the oven, I have an electric oven so I think next time I will bake at 400 for about 30 minutes. The 15 to 20 minutes time frame is probably for thin breasts. Family was pleased with overall taste and said they would eat this dish again. I also have two granddaughters 6 & 4 who said they enjoyed the meal.

    This is a good alternative to fried chicken. The coating on it is tasty and it's a healthy recipe. The parmesan cheese adds alot of flavor.

    Fun Finger-Friendly Food

    Miss Kendy from DeKalb, IL

    I made this recipe for my boyfriend and myself one night because I was in the mood for something 'different'. My boyfriend is a very selective eater and although I do give him credit for venturing out and at least tasting new things, he had made it clear to me that he does not like chicken. Instead of full chicken breasts, I opted to use tenders. They came out beautifully. We made rice as a side dish which was a perfect accent. He loved the dish, and told me he wants it again. He actually wants me to make chicken again (in the form of tenders nonetheless), but still. Plus, it really was easy to make, the ingredients are easily affordable and it's perfect for college students that have small spaces to work with and not much money in the wallet.

    Baked Dijon Chicken

    Manjula Panakkal from CHICAGO, IL

    I did try this recipe. It was easy and tasted good. Since it tasted kinda "bland" instead of plain bread crumbs I used Italian bread crumbs. Other than that I wouldn't change anything in this recipe. It goes real good with chicken flavored brown rice and Italian salad.

    So good that I asked for a lemon from my neighbor!

    N. Chapman from

    I was so eager to try out this recipe that I asked my next door neighbor for a lemon. He has a lemon tree growing in his yard and let me tell you, the end result was so delicious. It is totally worth asking your neighbor for fresh lemons, then make an extra one for your neighbor as a gift in return!

    This was one of the easiest cheesecakes I have ever made. It is thin enough to help with calories, but give you a wonderful feeling of cheating. I think I will try it next with either light of fat free cream cheese and/or condensed milk.

    Delicious Recipe To Welcome Spring

    Susan Campbell from GRASS LAKE, MI

    I worried about "not enough lemon flavor" but decided to go with the recipe as it was written. I found that it had plenty of flavor, perhaps not overwhelmingly lemon, but also not so strong that those who dislike lemon wouldn't eat it. Next time around, I'll try adding a teaspoon of lemon extract, which should give it additional tartness and zing. I might also try making it with lime juice and zest.

  •  Star(s)

    YUMMY!!!

    Sandra Clements from JACKSON, MO

    THIS WAS SUCH A GOOD DESSERT, JUST THE RIGHT TOUCH OF LEMON FLAVOR. YOU CAN USE ANY KIND OF FRUIT, I USED STRAWBERRIES, BUT WILL MAKE IT THE NEXT TIME WITH BLUEBERRIES AND/OR BLACKBERRIES. MY KIDS REALLY LIKED THIS AND I WILL BE MAKING THIS AGAIN.

    After reading some of others reviews, I decided to add 1/2 cup of lemon juice and grated lemon peels from 2 lemons. It was out of this world. Not only was it so simple to make it was the perfect lemon tart taste. Now I am going to try the key lime.

    ANGELINA ROGERS from AKRON, OH

    I made this tart for our church lunch today, and another for my sister's visit later this evening. After reading the reviews, I decided to add more lemon juice and I'm glad I did. This was well recieved at the lunch and I know my sister will enjoy it too. I made a copy of the recipe for her. I will make this again this Spring, and other times too.

    Excellent

    Jennifer Almond from Loganville, Ga

    I really love this recipe. It does need a little bit of a stronger lemon taste. I spread a bit of lemon curd over the top and then added the fruit. It also keeps the berries from rolling around when transporting it.

    lemon tart

    Sharlene Birkland from STEILACOOM, WA

    This is overall a nice recipe. It is very easy to make and has a lovely presentation; however, I only rated it as average because it has very little lemon flavor to it, even when I doubled the amount of lemon zest. I would recommend doubling both the zest and the amount of lemon juice to amp up the flavor....with a bit more tartness and zip this recipe would definitely be excellent!
