    Great Treat

    Katrina from Indiana

    This was a hit drink at my bridal shower!! Everyone really liked this and raved about it! It was kid friendly, as to my nieces enjoyed it just as much as my grandmother did. We had also made some with using raspberries instead of strawberries. Great to just try with different fruits. Enjoy!

    I made this last evening for dinner, but was disappointed. It seemed too dry. Needed more moisture. With more moisture, I think it would be delicious. Maybe I'll add a can of cream of chicken soup to it.

    Tasty

    Kristina Van Dam from OLD BRIDGE, NJ

    I liked this meal, but the fact that my son liked it was even better. He'll normally eat rice, but chicken is hard to get into him unless it is fried. He ate every piece of chicken in this meal. If you can successfully feed it to a toddler, then it gets a 5 in my book!!!

    Tasty

    Joyce Pillitteri from JACKSONVILLE, FL

    I was afraid to make this for dinner, my husband doesn't like spicy foods, but I decided to give it a try. Much to my delight he liked it very much. I used long grain brown rice and cooked it 30 minutes before mixing up the casserole. I used fat free evaporated milk and egg beaters, to cut down on the fat. Worked out great.

    One Big Hit

    Shadow Kistner from Cave City, AR

    I made this dish Sunday for Mother's Day, for my daughters and their families, I doubled the recipe because this dish went over so well, I had nothing left in either casserole pans, and better yet my 8 year old grand-daughter who is a very picky eater came to me and said,"Grandma may I have some more of that food ?" So yes I rate this excellent. Thank You.

      Loved by All

      Heidi Hotmer from Vermont

      This recipe was loved by just about everyone that tried it and most people came back for more. I didn't care too much for the marshmallows in it. The reason I gave it a four was because the recipe itself was a little difficult to work with. The white mixture was very thick and not easily "drizzled" on. It was plopped on and then dragged through with a large serving fork to create the swirls. It also is not the best tasting fudge I have made.

      Mary Dempster from Huntington Beach, CA

      I thought this recipe would be wonderful and as I make a lot of fudge gave it a try...in fact I tried it twice. It turned out a disaster. I do not know if I was doing something wrong though I checked it carefully, or if there is an error in the ingredients but I did not like the texture at all. Sorry I ended up throwing it all away. This is the first recipe from you that I have been disappointed in. I make desserts for five different groups each week.
