"is there a truck to adding the cream cheese where it doesn't circle? I've the recipe and it tastes great but the crea. cheese juat doesn't fully break down." - seamus m.
"Good but I think these buffalo chicken breasts are better grilled - slightly brown on each side and then baste generously with sauce turning once or twice until cooked through. But, this is a good substitute for nights when firing up the grill would not be optimal. Made several tweaks. Also recommend keeping some sauce on the side for dipping." - mrsoul51
"It was good, but nothing outstanding about it. I made it without tweaks other than the addition of red wine. Not sure what everyone was going on about the saltiness or need to cut back on the dressing mixes... I followed the recipe & didn't find it to be salty at all -or overly flavorful for that ...

"I made this for New Year's Eve. Followed the recipe exactly & it came out just like the photo-but I was a bit disappointed with it. Some guests enjoyed it, some I think didn't as they didn't go back for seconds. Husband commented yuck. I wasn't a big fan either, would rate it as just okay, not worth the effort. I'll be going back to the normal cob loaf dips, much prefer those. Won't make this again." - sherri3802
"This recipe will give you two loaves of plain, sweet white bread that are quick and easy to make." - peg
"A simple soy sauce and brown sugar marinade, with hints of lemon and garlic, are the perfect..." - sheldon
