This is so delicious but....the baking times are way off. I followed the recipe to the letter but even after adding another 5 minutes of baking, the bottom layer was still raw and doughy inside. I served it and it looked beautiful but once I discovered the raw dough, I dumped it in a flat baking pan and it's STILL in the oven after 20 minutes at...

Delicious. Love the convenience of putting one of these dough "logs" in the freezer for a quick, tasty snack for guests.

This is absolutely delicious and a great way to get acquainted with the chia seed. I send it to school with my teenager in the mornings and she loves it.

A definite keeper. I used the zest of one large lemon and it was perfect."

The flavors here are superb but I'm not a big fan of using flank steak for it. The meat is just too thick to roll easily and the stuffing all fell out. Plus, my family thought it could be more tender. When I made the same recipe with thinly sliced round steak (sold at Safeway here in CA) it was much better. I will definitely make it again."

Perfectly delicious. One note - I had to add more flour. For some reason, mine was still more brothy than thickened after 3 T. I pulled out some of the soup and used a small whisk to add about 3 more T of flour to make a sort-of paste. Then, I added this back to the pot. This recipe is a keeper.""

This soup is absolutely delicous. I made it to the letter the first time (the herbs are key - do not leave them out) and on the second go-around, I discovered that you can omit the bacon and use butter instead. This recipe is easy, cheap, and tasty. What more could you ask for? Don't be afraid of the kale! It's good for you and an integra...

This was a BIG hit with my family. Juicy, well-seasoned meat in a pita. How can you go wrong? I followed the recipe to the letter. Because they are relatively thick, I think I grilled them a little longer than 3 minutes per side and I was careful to check the temperature. These patties are really moist due to the tomato paste and the vegetabl"

Delicious! Such a nice change from traditional brownie. The only thing I changed second time around was to multiply the glaze recipe by 1.5. I felt it needed just a bit more to cover it thoroughly. Definitely prefer this to the other version of this recipe on the FN website (with the frosting). The thin firm layer of glaze perfectly compleme"

Delicious! I didn't have superfine sugar so I boiled the water and regular sugar together to make simple syrup and let it cool before adding it to the tea and lemon. We loved it."

Genius! Just made it and loved every bite. I made my own almond milk in the vita-mix (almonds, water, and almond extract) and used old-fashioned rolled oats. I let it cook on its own during my 30 minute walk and when I came back it had really soaked up all the liquid so I stirred in another cup of water to loosen it up a a bit. Creamy, filling,...
