Really liked this recipe. Very similar to a summertime sangria, but with cinnamon notes. We used a bottle of fruity red, and a bottle of cranberry wine. I didn't think we'd use all the syrup, but we did. I like you can add as much or as little of the syrup, depending on how sweet you like it. Will make again.

Great, traditionally flavored stuffing. Loved the addition of the walnuts. My stuffing (made as directed) was VERY mushy in the middle. I took off the top layer and put it in a different bowl and popped the mushy part into the oven for about 15 extra minutes. Perfect.

Huh. For the life of me I can't figure out why people liked this so much. We followed the recipe as directed -marinated for 24 hours. The day we made it, the only flavor it had was an overpowering hot pepper flavor. Two days later (LOTS of leftovers), it finally had a coconut flavor, but not at all on the day we made it. Won't be making it again.

So I made this exactly according to the recipe -no adjustments whatsoever. It came out mildly dry and completely flavorless. The chicken was pale, skin not crispy and not even the garlic was roasted. I can't, for the life of me, figure out how this recipe worked for so many people. Can't say that I'll do it again, although I had high hopes.

huh. I just can't figure out why this got so many 4-5 star ratings. The cookies were definately moist, easy to make and pretty (looks like snow!). Unfortunately, the flavor was pretty blah. Not very chocolatey despite using "dark chocolate" cake mix. The confectioner's sugar was either absorbed into the cookie or not a strong enough flavor to "

This is a regular installment in my menus! It's easy to do, healthy and delicious. If I don't have sour cream on hand, I use plain yogurt. If I don't have either, I just don't add it. We like feta, so I add a bit more than she calls for. It's delicious as written, though.""
