These are to die for!!!! The recipe was a little time consuming but completely worth it. I will definitely make these the next time we have houseguests for a special breakfast treat. I, also, did not use 12 Tablespoons of butter for the filling. I softened just one stick of butter and I didn't even use the whole thing. I found that much butter"

I don't think Sandra meant for this recipe to be taken as authentic. It is a great yummy recipe which was a hit in my household. I added a jalapenio to the onion mixture as we like a little heat. My only suggestion would be to use slightly bigger sheets of parchment paper. I think it would've been easier for me to wrap them up if the parchment "

This was slightly more time consuming than making muffins or coffee cake that I'm used to making but completely worth it. I can't believe there's only 2 tablespoons of butter in this. This coffee cake is absolutely delicious! If I could give it more than 5 stars I would. This will now be a staple in my household. Great recipe!""

Delicious snack. Here's a tip to prevent the seeds from tasting chewy as some reviewers have complained about: Roast them in a 300 degree oven for 10 minutes before you season them with oil and spices. This dries them out so that when you put the oil on them it doesn't soak into the wet seeds. I then roasted them as per the recipe states. Mine...

This was delicious. I omitted the olives because my husband and I dislike them. I also used ground sirloin. Very easy to make. I felt like it didn't need the pita bread, especially since there is orzo in it. We hardly ate any of the pita bread. A nice hearty meal on a cold night!""

I didn't like this very much. The lemon was overpowering and it lacked the basil flavor I expected it to have. I probably won't make this again.""

Soooooooo Yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!! This will be a BBQ staple from now on. I BBQ the corn, which made it very flavorful. I only used about half of the dressing. It didn't seem to need all of it. Very flavorful and so easy to make. A definite keeper!"

I watched Anne make this on her show and I wanted to try it. I didn't have fresh fava beans in my grocery store but I did find frozen shelled fava beans. Other than the frozen beans I made this with the bacon and exactly per the recipe states. It was delicious. Kind've an interesting twist on split pea soup. I also used an immersion blender to...

This was fun to make because I didn't have to worry about making sure the crust was perfectly uniform. I thought it lacked a little bit of flavor but maybe I did something wrong. My husband and I still liked it a lot so I will try it again and see how it works out.

I thought these were just OK. I will try them again next time but I won't repeat the process of dredging them and coating them with flour as the recipe states. Once I did that a second time they got very sticky and the flour starting clumping. Then once I fried them they had way too much breading on them. I'll try them again because the flavor...
