I made this yesterday morning for Christmas dessert. Thank you Ree it turned out fantastic. I had no problems with it setting up, in fact it was set up in less than 3 hours. I used instant espresso powder and it was rich and creamy. I did have a few say "uncle" and were unable to finish it due to its richness but then others had two servings. I guess...

My family loved this dish. I did make some changes though after reading the reviews. I put in 5 cloves of garlic and a good pinch of crushed red pepper flakes. I also used one can of the tomato sauce. I read that she only used one can in the recipe in her cookbook and on her website she uses an 8oz can. The pasta was saucy enough with just the one"

This is the first time I have ever used a recipe for deviled eggs. I figured I'd give it a try as I thought using vinegar and sugar would be interesting. I ended up using more mayo as I like really creamy egg yolks. Everyone was pleased, but there was no "WOW" as others have said. This recipe was also similar to what I have been doing for years. "

These were fun to make and we really enjoyed them. I did have a few issues as I only had 3.5 ounces unsweetened chocolate (my store was out grrrrr) and it took closer to an hour to bake. The flavor was yummy and we love thick and fudgy brownies. As for the frosting next time I might make half the recipe since I have a container full of leftover fr"

I was a little nervous making these after reading some reviews. I used a little bit of salt when the onions and peppers were sauteing as I love to layer seasoning when I cook. I followed the instructions as written, but I did not add any more salt until I was sure the beans were tender. I had no trouble with them getting tender and then I added th"

I made these tonight for my husband and 2 of his friends. They were going bird watching up in the mountains and I wanted them to have a good dinner that was easy to travel with. I asked my husband how they were and he replied "really good, Brad wants to propose to you" that has to be my favorite reaction of all times. Thanks for the recipe. The on"

I have made this twice and both times it was a huge hit. I did add hot sauce to the buttermilk since we like things spicy. I love the idea of putting the buttermilk in the flour. How smart is that? The crunch of the chicken makes it perfect. Thanks again for another winning recipe."

I made these tonight and slightly altered the recipe to what I had on hand, cut the recipe in half and used fresh potatoes. I used 2 anaheim peppers and 1 jalapeno as that is what I had in my garden at the time. Well anyways this was a HUGE hit with the family. We couldn't stop eating them and we all had seconds.

I have been making these since I first saw them on her show. I add a cup of raisins or craisins to the recipe. I will continue making this recipe as I have now memorized this. I may try some of the variations that others have used in their versions of this recipe. Thanks for such a tasty recipe that got my husband off Pop Tarts!"

This recipe is AMAZING!!!! It does take a little while to prep for but it is soooo worth it. I am glad I read other reviews and saw this in not something to do 3 hours before you want to eat. I made the stuffing this morning and loved the taste. A few hours later I ran the tomatoes through the food mill and then started pounding out the round "

I love celery root and this was a different take on the way I have been making it. I served it with salmon confit and crispy fennel chips. It was fantastic. Very easy to make and lots of flavor. I picked this recipe to go with all the lovely tastes of a sauvignon blanc."

This salad was incredibly tasty and easy to make. I didn't have any bell peppers so I left them out and actually didn't miss them. We had this with roasted chicken and the rich chicken went so wonderful with the tangy fresh taste from this salad. If you haven't been a fan of panzanella before this recipe will change your mind.

This recipe rocked. I had to make a few changes since the brisket I had was only 1.25 lbs. The flavors were fantastic and all around excellent. I used a combination of beef and chicken stock since that is what I had open in the fridge. I served this with my recipe of potato pancakes and also had honey orange glazed roasted carrots.

Love this recipe. I may make a few changes with what I did only because I didn't follow Sunny's portions exactly. I made 3 pastries and on 2 I used salmon and on 1 I used chicken since our daughter isn't a salmon fan. Let me say everyone LOVED it!!! The mushroom portion with the puff pastry was incredible.

So good!!! I only had a pound of pork belly and will have to adjust the salt for next time, but so incredible. Made mashed potatoes for the side and kept the salt down on that and it was a perfect complement. Wine pairing is a tough job, but found a good neutral, Gregory Graham Dry Riesling 2008 from Lake County, CA. went nicely. Can't wait to...
