too much lemon with both the zest and juice. I used the juice only/ no zest and the lemon was more than enough.

The flavor gets 5 stars. If you want a gelatin based texture there is nothing wrong with this. I was looking for something creamier so I used this as a starting point. I saw an ad for appetizers that had avacado mousse topped with salmon. Loved the idea, but not the mousse. So I tried this one as written next. The flavor is what I wanted, but sti...

No changes ( unusual for me!). Only comments are i used a regular shallow pie shell ( pre frozen) so not all filling fit, had some leftover vanilla pudding on the side . Would use a deep dish shell next time. And as the last poster noted, put plastic wrap tight on it when chilling."

As is needs some changes but easily fixed. The meat itself was good. I liked the crumb crust, came out well. Although I only needed about half the egg wash.... Had a lot leftover. My issues were more with the gravy. First the meat is salted and peppered then there is a lot of s and p in the sauce. It';s too much, can';t taste the meat any...

The brownies were not bad but I will keep the one I like / have even better from Ree Drummond. Those are to die for. The mint icing is da bomb though. I was eating it out of the bowl. I ended up not putting the third layer / second frosting on it . I even made it... But stuck it back in the fridge / will keep it for a future batch of brownies. I ...

this was very good with some slight changes...not because I thought it needed it....but because I was looking for something specific. We had recently eaten out at an Italian restaurant and my husband had an amazing dish of veal bundles stuffed with mozzarella and prosciutto in a mushroom wine gravy. These were the closest thing I found to it. So I...

Very tasty, the coconut was a nice touch. It gave a creamy texture without the actual cream. In fact since I liked it as is before I got to adding the milk ... I left the milk out. Especially as hubby isn';t a huge Fan of creamed soups. I did it in the slow cooked after sweating veggies in pan first"

this was a little heavy on the nutmeg and clove for me, those flavors came through a little TOO much. I would cut those in half next time. I do like those in there, but they ended up a little overpowering."
