Made this according to directions. It was good, but if I made it again I would make 2 changes- More cheese! and LESS salt. Maybe 1 TSP every time it calls for a TBSP."

Yum! Almost more like a spice cake than really pumpkin tasting, which suited us all just fine. My toddler went back for seconds, and he's not a big fan of cake."

My 3 1/2 year old thoroughly approved, FIL & I just thought it was OK. I was surprised they weren't hotter."

I thought these were amazing, chewy & that perfect oatmeal cookie texture on top, but with a crispy bottom. I'm going to have to give some of these away so I don't eat them all in 2 days!"

Ok, I tweaked the recipe a bit. Used thighs, realized I had forgotten to buy mushrooms halfway through, completely skipped the bouquet garni, and forgot to skim fat off the top. I also ended up leaving it on low for about 20 minutes after finishing the cooking process since I was waiting for my evil rice cooker to take 3x as long as it needed. Ev...

I had to lessen the cooking time a bit as the bottoms kept burning, but my stove is old & unreliable, so it may have just been me. Besides that, decent cookies."

This was a lovely, hearty soup. My 3-year old devoured his share and then started stealing out of our bowls! Just the thing to warm you up on a grey spring day."

It took more time to prep than indicated, (and less to cook, if I had left it in 50 minutes it would have been completely burned. I took it out of the oven at about 35 minutes) but SO GOOD! I went back for seconds & our friend had fourths!"

Not bad, I was afraid they were going to be spicy but they weren't, just a pleasant jerk flavor."

I would make a different crust next time, like others I had some problems with it holding together, even after adding extra oil & yogurt. But the flavor! YUM! I'm always looking for vegetarian recipes that will fly under my meat-happy family's radar, and with another crust, this is going in my rotation."

Good. Not great. I skipped making the bees because I was feeling a touch lazy, it probably would have made them cuter."

This was awesome. All the flavors went together perfectly, and it's easy to add or subtract things if you don't care for them. It's my new go-to potluck dish, and perfect for those nights you don't want a heavy dinner, or to heat up your kitchen. I think it would be amazing with slices of sausage included too."

I doubled the recipe (minus onions) for 3 adults & a toddler, it had just enough for 2 of us to go back for leftovers. Everyone asked me to make it again, only with a little worcestershire next time. I do kind of question the "healthy" label glancing at the nutritional info, but I suppose with beef it would have been much fattier."

This was pretty good, I made it for my boyfriend for Father's Day, omitting the onion since he is a strict carnivore. We all went back for seconds, but as one of the other reviewers mentioned, there was a slightly off flavor. My boyfriend thinks is was the cocoa powder, but we're going to play around with it a bit more."
