This is DELISH! I already had rum, so I used rum instead of tequila- cant imagine there's a huge difference in the taste there. Also, I forgot to put the mint in the simple syrup, but I didn't miss the mint in here. "

The drink tastes good, but it's farrrrrr too strong to serve to anyone who is going to leave your house. I served it at a party, but I used less vodka and added a little simple syrup.""

I'm not one of D'Arabian's biggest fans, but I have to give credit where it is due. THIS RECIPE IS WONDERFUL! I made these for a holiday party that I had this afternoon. It was my first time making them, but I needed one more dish to make my table look a little better and I figured that the red of the tomato and the green from the fresh basil was...

I tried the recipe after watching the episode, and I felt like something was missing. Soooo, I added 1tbsp of Dijon mustard, 1 jarred roasted pepper (I needed to use it or toss it), and 1/4 of an avocado, cubed (also needed to use or toss it). My additions made the salad a little more filling, and flavorful.

I served these at my halloween party a week ago and people LOVED them. I added a pinch of fresh baby arugala, and a teeny, tiny dash of red pepper flakes- quite tasty. The pea-pesto is also REALLY good mixed into hot couscous.

This recipe isn't bad. I just used very little red pepper flakes (I'm not big on spicy things)... I did enjoy the pesto couscous. Although, Giada made this pea-pesto crostini- I had tons of pea-pesto leftover, so I made this recipe again, and substituted the pea-pesto, which made it a bit more flavorful. I suggest trying this with Giada's pea-pesto...
