Really good! I didn't have any more coconut flakes on hand so I couldn't add those. I also did add mango compote that I had in the refrigerator, which added a little extra sweetness. Thanks!"

It was good, but mine baked a lot faster and got a little overbaked. I should have paid more attention to it. I did add some extra chopped pineapple and used splenda instead of sugar. Thanks!"

Nov 5, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

it was fantastic, but we didn't have figs and instead we used strawberries since that's what we had. I imagine it would work with a lot of fruits too. I may have cooked it longer than the time specified here until it was as thick as I liked it. Definitely an incredibly rich dish and a little serving will go a long way.""

Sep 21, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Loved it! I made 2 quarts worth with 1 cup of sugar and about 1 cup of granulated splenda. I figured the splenda would be sweeter when it reduced (which it was), so I didn't do a strict doubling of the sugar. At the end after straining, I tasted the milk solids and noticed they tasted similar to some paneer-based indian sweets. I mixed in some gr...

I liked it a lot, but I think it needs a little extra kick or spice to it. I added 3 serranos unseeded but I felt like maybe just a little more. Maybe some indian chili powder? I still liked the taste a lot. Thanks!""

Made some changes, but I loved it! I didn't have swiss chard and for the white beans I used dried soybeans that were soaked overnight. I seasoned with chicken boullion instead of salt and used shredded cooked chicken instead of ground chicken. Loved it and love how super healthy it is (especially with soybeans to add more protein). Thanks!""

I saw these on TV and really wanted to try them out. I made a few adjustments. I had dried pinto beans only, so I made this in a pressure cooker (~1 hour 15 min at full pressure). I love spice, so I added 3 serrano peppers along with the sriracha. After tasting it at the end, I probably would add MORE sriracha (told you I like spice :) ).

yum yum
I used thawed frozen peaches and added some mangoes too. I was too lazy to make a top crust, so I just left it open-faced. Still came out great and not runny at all. I used the juice of 1 small lemon and threw in the zest of it too for some brightness. Thank you!"
