Adrienne Fein on August 30, 2021

Ken Squibb on September 14, 2021

Why does this feel like an infomercial? More like a cross between an infomercial and Jerry Springer (the sad dad jokes).

Melissa Carmona on September 18, 2021

I make this and it’s such a huge hit in my house. It’s very decadent and heavy so we don’t have it often but man is it delicious

Arumba on September 19, 2021

looking at someone boast their food on a computer screen means nothing when you have not actually tried the damn food stop looking at these people like their food is godly if you'd never tried it.

Jason on September 22, 2021

DMac740 on October 18, 2021

Needed more bacon , parmesan cheese on top instead of hand fulls of panko because you made the sauce to thin a little panko is ok not two cups.

Jan Zebuski on January 11, 2022

Looked pretty good- learned some tips. Nowadays he's just sitting back and collecting the bucks for playing "game show host" on lots of shows. Almost over-exposed. Can't remember the last time that I saw him do any actual cooking on TV.
