These were awful. They lacked flavor. Not quite sweet, but not quite savory. No one liked them and most were thrown out. I usually like Giada's recipes, but definitely not this time!

This is a solid scone recipe that lends itself to be customized with any additions you like. I used blueberries and they turned out great. As another reviewer stated, I was also unable to roll them out, but made do, ending up with 13 scones. My scones took at least 20 minutes to get golden.. I also added a sprinkling of sugar to the top to give th"

This was the best tomato soup/bisque I've ever had. Unbelievably delicous!! I had no sherry, so substituted cognac, which seemed to work perfectly. I also left out the heavy cream, as I felt it simply didn't need it. I will certainly try more of Jeff's recipes.""

Excellent crust!! I was skeptical about making the gingersnap crust, but it is a must-have. The custard was not fabulous, but good.""

This was a huge disappointment. I reduced the lemons as other reviewers recommended. However, in the end this was just too rich, with an odd flavor. The first spoonful or two were good, but for the most part, the dessert was thrown out. I will not make this again."

This was a delicious dip! The pine nuts are a must - they're a great addition. However, I did find this a bit too salty like other reviewers. With the olives, there's no need for so much salt. I cut the salt in half."

Unfortunately, I didn't read the reviews before I made this. Way too much cardamom... it simply overpowered everything. It was an easy recipe to make, but I ended up throwing it all out. If I tried it again, I would definitely drop the cardamom.
