Saw this on Marcela's show and had to make it! It was the perfect end to a Mexican dinner. My family loved it and I got a 5 Star from my son's buddy who apparently is a food critic!

I made this tart for Easter Tea, it was so delicious, it looked beautiful, and so easy to make! Loved everything about it! Even my husband who doesn't care for fruit tarts loved it! I didn't change anything in the recipe and it was perfect! Next time I'll try mandarins instead of kiwi. Any ideas what to do with the extra lime juice?

I made this for Christmas brunch. I LOVED it! My family enjoyed it but didn't seem to love it like I did. They didn't care for the cream cheese and said they would have preferred whipped cream. I thought the cream cheese was a perfect compliment. I did not put sugar in the french toast batter because it already has a lot of sugar, and it did...

LOVE this chocolate and orange cookie! Great combination! I know many had a problem with the dough.... as did I the first time I made them. You need to WATCH THE VIDEO before making these cookies. Add the dry ingredients into the wet in three parts, and you will have a smooth buttery dough that is easy to work with. Otherwise, the dough will...

Recently my husband and I traveled to New Orleans where we dined at Emeril's. We ordered the Gumbo and LOVED it! After being inspired by the flavors of this cajun dish, decided I had to make it! I have to say it was EXCELLENT! Don't be deceived by the length of time it takes to make this recipe.... It's actually very easy, and well worth the time!...

These are GREAT and so easy to make! I made some with liners and some without..... Not much difference, except that the ones with liners were slightly more moist. I also added jalapeno to some of them ...... WOW! I will definitely be making these for our church chili night!"

The marinade was GREAT and so EASY to make. I didn't make the Sherry Vinegar Steak Sauce because I had a chili lime dressing with garlic I made .... I'll try it next time and will probably omit the horseradish and molasses. My family loved it and they suggested I make this next time we have company over. :)"

My family LOVED this recipe! For the most part, I followed the recipe. After reading reviews, I added my chopped spinach to the sauce. We really didn't even notice the spinach was there. Next time, I will cut back on the cheese, we all thought it was way too much cheese..... And this is the only reason I gave it a 4 star instead of 5. I plan "

I made this for the first time and my family LOVED it! I used half of the amount of gruyere it requested and added swiss (gruyere too expensive but has great flavor). I also used shrimp instead of lobster. I didn't use as much nutmeg as requested, but after reading the reviews I will try cayenne pepper next time. I used a whole pound of pasta "

Thank you Melissa! I made these today for brunch. My boys 12 and 14 LOVED them! They do not like to eat vegetables and I didn't tell them till after they were done eating.

I made this meal for my family and it was very easy and very tasty. Everyone enjoyed it. I also did not find the brioche and used a bread labeled French Bread. I added sugar and vanilla to the whipped cream, otherwise it's bland. That would have taken the recipe to 7 ingredients and I think that's why she left it out. The strawberries were very ta"
