Not tasty at all! Too sweet, and the flavors just did not go well. No one in my family liked it- Will be removing from my recipe box

This was my 1st time trying cod and I really enjoyed it. I really loved making little packages out of the parchment paper as well. I do not really see the point in the olives except for looks. It did not give any flavor to my fish. I was a little surprised how little flavor there actually was considering everything I put on it. Next time I think a...

I am on the fence about this one. It was just ok, I feel like it needed something more. Maybe blue cheese and walnuts? I dont know, still trying to figure this one out. There was not that much flavor. The potential is there I think I just need to play around with it a little more"

This soup was amazing and this is the only way I will ever make tomato soup again. Everyone went back for seconds. I did not have basil or mascarpone cheese on me but I can not wait to try it with those ingredients next time. I also used an emersion blender just to smooth it out a little.

I liked it. I think this would be good to serve before a meal rather then it be a meal in its self. My hubby thought it was ok as he prefers more substance. I think I would leave the carrot out next time. It made it a little too sweet for my liking. I probably would make this again but just not as a meal."
