I've used this recipe many, many times. It's excellent. ""

This turned out a very tasty product. I bought a can of pre-made dulche de leche at the same time so I could compare side by side. Both were wonderful and amazing. Biggest difference is the can only took 20 seconds to open. While this recipe is great, the canned stuff was better in my opinion. Two hours of my life wasted. Next time it's the...

Easy as can be. Wonderful crust. I didn't find it overly sweet. Just right in my opinion. A very nice way to use fresh figs. I had a couple of issues though. The crust sprung a few leaks when it was ten minutes away from being finished baking. So in order to not lose all the filling, I had to prop a few ramekins against the leaks to hold t...

Way too much work. Results not worth the huge amount of effort. Making ravioli is nowhere near as easy as it sounds, even if you have experience making pasta. Plus I spent $20 on the taleggio cheese, only to discover it tastes like American cheese. It added absolutely nothing to the flavor of the filling. All you could identify were ricotta a"

Made this tonight. The moment I saw Mary Beth do this on episode 2 I knew she was the one I would keep my eye on. This dish is amazing, just as I thought it would be...restaurant quality...the flavors are complex and rich. The combination of the rich sauce and the sweet/salty roasted grapes...out of this world! Did the judges forget about this"

Made these last night. Used prosciutto instead of ham because that's what I already had. But I think ham would actually work just as well. Everything else I did as directed and these were wonderful. Crispy brad against creamy top with the slight richness of the light zing of the sauce. served with a side of leftover Israeli Cous Cous Tabouli "

Made all three recipes...felafel, salad and sauce. What a great meal. My family loved it. The flavors were bright and complex. everything worked well together. Everything was easy to make. Yes, as others have said, the dough was a little thin, but on reflection, melissa did mention in the episode that she uses small lemons. And I coated my "

I'm making this now and after an hour, the onions are still completely white. The recipe says to cover and cook. But if I remember correctly when I watched the episode, the pot was uncovered. Am I misremembering this? Is there anywhere to view old episodes?

*UPDATE* the onions started caramelizing in the last 10 minutes or...
