Very nice, although I didn't use all almond milk, either. I used about half a cup of almond milk and also some coconut milk I had, as well as regular milk. The coconut and white wines flavors gave it an elevated, holiday feel.

I was skeptical, looking at the recipe, but we think this may be the best soup we've ever eaten.

We thought these were magnificent, made according to the recipe and served with a little of my homemade orange marmalade. I did one pan with 1/3 c. measures and one pan 1/3 full and liked the first one better because they looked prettier but both worked fine, just keeping an eye on them for doneness."

We love this pie. It's simple but turns out delicious every time, even though I sometimes leave out the third berry or use a different berry. The apple-cranberry combination alone makes it perfect for the holidays, and gives it that extra pop that keeps us coming back for more."

Excellent combination of flavors. I'm glad she said 130 degrees is rare. Some of the other lamb recipes here say 120, but that is if you like your meat to look like a beating heart. I did it to an internal temp. of 140 and it was beautifully medium-rare. We're not into meat as sushi.

What's particularly exciting about this pie is that Aaron has found a way to make pecan pie less cloyingly rich and sweet but still delicious, so you can truly enjoy without quite as much guilt. And the crust is flaky and crispy. Just great!

The roasted cauliflower with the curry is really nice. You can really play with this recipe. I agree the amount of couscous can be reduced with respect to the amount of add-ins. You can bump up the protein by adding garbanzo beans, which also work well with curry, and add some more crunch and bite with some chopped radishes and green onions. If...
