This is the second time I've made these--they were a big hit at a Christmas party last year, and when I was invited this year, I was informed that I would be bringing these again. I watched the Jazz Fest episode that these were originally from, and they were much easier on TV than in this I did what Claire did--none of this 'candy the...

Doubled this recipe and made 4 - 8x8 pans. They were a little shallow, should have made 3. I added garlic and onion powders as S.P. suggested, and it was necessary. This was super easy and quick, and really easy to make a lot of for the freezer.

I made these with butter instead of shortening, and only coated the tops in cinnamon sugar so the puffs could stay in muffin cups. I froze them, and took them on vacation for the first morning breakfast. Reheated, they were really good. A little bland in the middle? But a great addition to the freezer for last minute."

This recipe is so easy and quick, great for a last minute party or simple gift. A bit addictive. The one downfall is that it must be kept cold, not out at room temp like regular fudge. I suppose that's what you give up by not having to boil. "

Yum! I LOVE this pie. It's so delicious, but the best part is how easy it is! I love that you can stir everything together, and then you have an amazing pie. It bakes up beautifully, and it's the perfect amount for a deep dish shell. My boyfriend, family, and all the Xmas party guests ask me to make it over and over. I've never made the caramel,...

Yum! This is easy, but really great! I served it along with Giada's lemon spaghetti, and a little extra parm on top.

I loved these! I added a little more chipotle, and a squeeze of honey to taste. My boyfriend doesn't eat sweet potatoes at all, but he tried these and wanted them again.

This was my first turkey, and I chose a 20.6 pounder! I could only tolerate having the oven at 500 degrees for 20 minutes, it smoked up the kitchen quite a bit. When it was finished, the turkey was still beautifully browned, and delicious! Everyone said it was as moist as they'd ever had!

I think these were really great! The filling was just salty enough, and I could actually taste each ingredient. My boyfriend hates peas with a passion, so I left them out, but it was still awesome. Next time I will make my half with the peas, because I know it would have been even better. My filling did leak out a little, but I had used pan spray,...
