"This is an awesome recipe. :) There is so much flavor! I managed to get my hands on hungarian paprika, and I think it makes a huge difference! Everyone I have made this for has LOVED it; so far it's my best impression. One person even told my sister that it was the best shepherd' s pie he'd ever eaten.
I had no problems with greasy meat. If I kept the meat on the stove long enough, the meat 'dried' up nicely, so I didn't need to drain it. By the way, this recipe works great if you half it and use an 8x8 pan.
My one complaint is the julienne vegetables. I must be bad at it: it takes me much longer than I would expect to julienne everything. But, I suppose it's necessary, so it's worth it.
Thanks Sunny! You made everyone awe my cooking! :) (I gave you the credit, of course)"
Reviewed Dark Salty Caramels
"These caramels are amazing! The first one was strange, but I have not been able to stop popping them in my mouth since.
I wrapped the caramels in wax paper instead of parchment paper. So far it's worked great. :)
There seems to be some confusion in the reviews. These are NOT normal caramels. If you watch the whole episode, the point of the recipe is to display how salt heightens the taste of sugar and actually blocks the tongue's ability to perceive bitterness (i.e., burned taste). So, you're supposed to push the sugar to it's smoking point.
So, follow the recipe. As much as I love AB, I think the video has a 'typo'. That's why they altered the written recipe (obviously, they can't change the episode). There's no way you can get sugar to go from 300 to 350 degrees without outside heat. So DON'T follow the video and shut the heat off before the caramel reaches 350 degrees. If you do, you'll miss out on the great subtleties of the bitterness and just have normal caramels.

"This was tasty, but it didn't knock my socks off. Partially, I'm not a bog fan of squishy zucchini."
Reviewed Corny Mango Salmon
"A miracle! My super picky husband, who hates both salmon and mango, said he loved this dish! I think it may be because the sweet mango takes away the fishy taste he hated. Sunny, you may have saved his poor little heart with Omega 3's! :)
Needless to say, I also loved this. Quasi-religious experience on first bite. The crust is not idiot-proof, so my dish didn't look as pretty as Sunny's, but it still tasted great! Great, great flavors!
Also, the recipe turned out great when I used frozen mango chunks (220 g = 1 mango)."
"I took this to a group meeting as the main course. Several people asked me for the recipe. :) Very tasty! Of course, I did put some hot sauce on my piece, but the dish is mild enough to serve a group of people.
A few caveats: I doubled the Sazon in the recipe and added a pinch more onion powder, salt, and cumin. But, maybe my beef was particularly bland. Also, my tortillas fell apart when I dipped them in the sauce, so instead I spread a light layer of sauce on the cheese. Then, I placed each tortilla on the casserole and covered each with sauce. That way, each tortilla was completely coated, but they couldn't fall apart.
This dish is my best casserole yet. :)
