Well swap out the oil. I have a friend who couldn't use peanut oil because of a peanut allergy. That is what is so great about cooking. You can tailor it to your preference.

I made this tonight. Where we live we have an Italian Bakery/Deli. I didn�t look at the recipe before we went there so I made this using Genoa Salami, Mortadella, and Smoked Mozzarella cheese. I also made my own pizza crust as I didn�t feel like running to the store and buying some already made. We enjoyed this. There are so many other options...

I made these tonight. What I did was spread a thin layer of the panko (not all of it) and then after I dipped the onion rings in the batter I placed them on the panko on the waxed paper so I wouldn't have all that clumping. Also I would reduce the batter portion by half. I did throw out about half the batter. We enjoyed the onion rings. For those...

I have the same problem. This new site sucks. It takes forever for me to type a comment because of the delay in what I type to show up. What I ended up doing is copy and paste the recipe into a text document.

Just asking, you got the sweetened condensed milk and not evaporated milk. I made that mistake once. Make sure it is sweetened condensed milk. I also have a similar recipe but the chips get melted in the microwave stirring every 30-60 seconds then I add the sweetened condensed milk.

I used mustard greens, I made a recipe from a different person and I can't find broccoli rabe I did a search and found that mustard greens would work. If you can't find green garlic you can substitute green onions and minced garlic.

Apr 24, 2014 on

I think you need to read the directions. It says to add 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar. Then you add 2 tablespoons of sugar to the egg whites. When you add that together that makes 1 cup.

The sauce was a bit runny so I ended up making a flour slurry to help thicken the sauce....
