I find it very amusing that people complained about too much pepper and therefore rated it poorly; but the recipe does not specify how much, it leaves it up to the cook to put in the amount they like. I made it and adjusted the pepper to our taste. Excellent recipe!

This is my absolute go-to recipe whenever I make roast chicken. It's always juicy with crispy skin and delectable flavor! Easy peezy and deeeee-lish!!!"

There is NO WAY you can carmelize onions properly in the short amount of time given in this recipe! I have used this recipe for many years and it takes about 45 minutes. "

Wonder how you can criticize a recipe when you didn't follow it??? Follow Ina's directions exactly and this recipe will make you a star! "

As Ina's recipes always do, this recipe rocks! After reading the negative reviews, I can only conclude that they used oil-packed sundried tomatoes and Ina clearly used DRIED sundried tomatoes. A little more common sense, people.... "

I liked this recipe, but I think it would benefit greatly with the addition of a pinch (to taste) of crushed red pepper flakes. Or a dash of sesame chili oil. Just sayin..."

The flavors were very good; I added chopped rosemary, garlic and pine nuts. My problem was with rising; it DIDN'T! No rise at all. Is the amount of yeast called for correct? 1/2 teaspoon? Admittedly, I am not a veteran breadmaker, but I do know how to make bread and follow a recipe. And I followed this recipe exactly. Any ideas anyone? ""
