Being a poor college student, what I liked most about this recipe was it's cost/benefit ratio. The ingredients were cheap, time and effort were minimal, and it tasted fabulous. The only thing I'd change is the amount of lemon juice... maybe use half of what the recipe calls for. Also, I substituted white wine for the chicken broth and that worked well. I'd recommend this recipe to anyone who is on a tight budget and low on time...
This peach cobbler is EXCELLENT!!! The only problem I had was that it was so watery. I used a little less that a cup (as other reviewers recommended), but it was still really runny. I only had an 8x8 pan, so perhaps that's why. I'll try again with a 1/2 c instead. Flavor, crust, etc. is awesome.
I made this recipe when company showed up at the last minute and I needed to scrape something together. Luckily I had everything on hand except the sunflower seeds, so I substituted with pine nuts. It was a HUGE hit. The seasoning mix was perfect--just enough brininess to offset the sweetness from the sugar. The textures from the grated carrots, celery, nuts, and noodles were great, as well. The nuts and celery were crunchy while the liquid gave the noodles and carrots just enough softness to provide some contrast. We served it with grilled salmon (marinated in a sweet Asian marinade) and the flavors complimented each other well. I will definitely make this dish again and recommend it as an easy veggie side that is different from the norm. Give it a shot, you won't be disappointed!
We've made this for 3 of the last 5 Thanksgivings and it's always a hit. In fact, people often request this to take home for leftovers, so this year we made 2 batches...one for us and one for everyone else! The only thing I change is I don't use as much turkey stock because I like mine more dry than mushy... you can always add gravy if it's dry, but if it's too wet there's not much that can be done.
