Wow was this good! It makes a lot and would be perfect for a potluck. I try to keep it in the fridge at all times now since we just eat it by the bowlful. Makes for nice snack without the guilt. Yay! You could also add salami and olives to make a meal."

There must be a typo on either the temp or time because I pulled this out at 30" and it was slightly burnt. However, it was still edible. The flavor is good so I'll be playing around with this recipe til I perfect it but at least I have a starting place. I hate to rate one of Ina's recipes so low but if I hadn't had my eye on it all those ingredi"

Unfortunately, this sounded better than it tasted. Normally I'd try the recipe again just to make sure I hadn't made a mistake but this recipe is simple so I know no error was made. The flavors simply didn't meld for me."

This was my first time to ever cook a pot of beans. I was scared out of my mind but this came out successfully and I'm encouraged to try other beans, perhaps pinto. The only thing I would do differently next time is to buy quality beans, not a store brand. Canned beans are so pricey so I'm happy I can now do them from scratch. Thanks Engrossed! :)"

I really loved the flavor of this soup but it was a little too salty and peppery for me. Once I dial those back this will be a huge hit especially for our hot TX summers! Thanks Ina for another yummy recipe! :) PS. I used Kosher salt."

I've seen this recipe before but for some reason it never sounded good...until I saw Ree do it. It was so simple I thought, "Why not?" I made one for each with a side order of bacon and orange juice. Well, they ate those up so quick I was back in the kitchen making a second batch before drinking half of my coffee, lol. Thanks again PW for another...

This was WONDERFUL! I was looking for a way to use some left over whipping cream when I came across this easy and delicious recipe. I didn't change a thing other than doubling it which I'm glad it did because even then there was just one serving left which the hubby ate later that evening. The only thing I would change next time is to maybe grill...

I tried the original recipe and the second time used frozen peaches and no ice. I preferred the second. After reading the other reviews I tweaked this recipe a little more and think I perfected it. I use only 2 oz of the amaretto and 1/4 oz of lemon juice. I eliminated the ice by using eight frozen peach slices. It is a little thick but if you let...
