I doubled the recipe and make two sheet cakes and stacked one on top of the other and filled with raspberry jam. It was great and everyone loved it, however, I only needed 1 half pint of blueberries but I needed 4 half pints of raspberries, not 3. This causes a major problem for me as I had only bought the amount listed in the recipe at the store."

I agree with other reviewers that this is more of a method than a recipe, but it works amazing well! Our pulled pork turned out amazing for pulled pork sandwiches! "

These were a huge hit at our 4th of July party yesterday! I multiplied the recipe times 5 and we completely ran out-they couldn't get enough! It is a little time consuming to juice that many lemon and limes for a big batch, but it was totally worth it."

This is pretty good, with some adjustments. I used half the oil after I read the reviews. I also used 2 tablespoons sesame oil instead of 3. I also added some red pepper flakes for a little heat. I did have half of the dressing left after making the instructed 1/2 pound of pasta. "

The crust was amazing and the pie was absolutely beautiful. The filling was a little too tart for me and I used half Granny Smith and half Gala apples. I can only imagine how tart it would have been if I used all Granny Smiths as directed. I would omit the lemon zest and maybe add a little more sugar next time."

I made these this morning with Sunday breakfast and they were great! Super moist for a bran muffin and really flavorful. I didn't add the raisins and followed the other reviewers and substituted honey for half of the molasses. Turned out great!!"

I made this today because my family is celebrating our Thanksgiving on Saturday. I did have some pretty sever cracking which I planned on covering with the ganache and whipped cream. I started reading these reviews tonight and started freaking out when people were saying the recipe had some serious errors in compared to when the episode was aired....

I make this soup all the time. I just recently took it over to my friend's house for her family to enjoy for dinner. It makes a huge batch of soup and her family of 3 ate the entire pot in two days. She said it was the best soup she has ever had!

I was looking for something to make my fiance for lunch on a raining Sunday afternoon. I wanted to use all ingredients we had so I didn't have to go out in the rain. I always have frozen spinach and Parmesan on hand and just happened to have frozen phyllo in the freezer. It was delicious! I did not have the feta so just used all Parmesan instead....
