eh, sweet fish, I didn't understand it... Not my cup of tea, but it wasn't bad. Had to add some lemon juice to it, not enough acidity for my taste heh. It was a different experience.

Amazing soup, love the flavor of all of the fresh veggies (sans the potatoes and corn), the parsley, and the lemon gives it some nice acidity. It may be basic to some, but if you enjoy fresh ingredients, and lots of natural, wholesome flavors, this is great!

I followed majority of the recipe... except i didn't cook it in olive...

it's yummy. Used clarified butter instead of olive oil, and baked it with the bacon, then added some cinnamon to it.

absolutely delicious. Always check your baking soda before adding it, and I always pop them in the freezer for at least 6 mins before cooking. Mine always come out great, not as puffy as the picture, but definitely not flat that a lot of people have mentioned.

After reading the reviews i was expecting a really spicy (the ginger kind of spicy) cookie. It wasn't, but it was still good, mine didn't thin out like his either (which looks really nice in the picture) even when i added some extra water in the second batch.

Takes a while to crystallize, but it is so worth the time. It is absolutely divine cut into strips on top of vanilla bean ice cream. My husband ate majority of the batch and then asked me to make more. Ginger is pretty cheap at Asian food markets, as well as other produce (esp. in NYC) so if you have one near by you should check it out. ""

tried this recipe with 1 granny smith, 1 fuji, 1 honeycrisp, and 1 golden delicious. Used a lot less sugar, and dusted it with a bit of ground cinnamon and powdered sugar after it was done cooling off. It was absolutely delicious. the entire family loved it, and asked for the recipe!! ""
