Instead of butter, I used a butter olive oil (7 Tablespoons) and Roasted Walnut Oil (2 Tablespoons). I also used pure vanilla extract. Topped with walnuts and cinnamon-(turbinado) sugar, about 2 teaspoons. Everyone LOVED-LOVED-LOVED this!! Super easy to make! "

I can't beleive I'm going to bag on one of Paula's dishes--but this one was a disaster. (I am no rookie in the kitchen, I co-wrote a cookbook!). I even hesitated brushing the vinegar reduction on the meat while broiling, but I followed her recipe exactly. I cracked the oven door during broiling, had the meat 4-5 inches from the flame, but the kit...

I made this with almond oil and it was fabulous!!!!! PLEASE follow his recipe exactly--it makes the most wonderful, smooth ice cream ever. I also used a stand mixer with the whisk attachment to keep my arm from looking like Schwarzenneger.Kudos, Alton!""

My daughter's and I were watching this recipe and since I had all of the ingredients on hand, we decided to make it during the commercial break. (I always have simple syrup on hand). It's a winner! I also love the fact that I am "sneaking" protein into a great smoothie.
Thanks, Giada!! We love you!!!!

I was really looking forward to making these brownies and substituting the "regular" oil in the recipes for Blood Orange infused olive oil. The flavor was wonderful!! The only probem was the baking time. I used an 8x8x2 pan (9x9 broken) so that looking like Melissa's description--matte around the edges, shiny inside, I assumed they were done. Afte"

If 10 stars were available I'd give it to Marcela. I made this for company and it was super easy and DELICIOUS!!!!!Probably one of the best cakes I've ever made in my life--and I'v made hundreds from scratch.
