This was not at all what I was expecting. The poblanos are so mild that this almost tastes like an alfredo vegetable lasagna. Anyway, prep time was pretty extensive and I thought overall it was a lot of work for a "good" dish. I followed the recipe pretty closely. The only changes I made were to sub dry for fresh thyme and I used mexican squas"

The taste was spot-on. Mine didn't get that dark brown mahogany color though. Surprisingly easy recipe and a great dough to work with.""

I made this for family dinner last night. It got rave reviews. My sister even said it was "the best apple dessert I have ever eaten". This recipe was pretty hard and time consuming though, so even though it was really delicious, I probably won't make it again unless I have a lot of time on my hands.""

I just made this for dinner and everyone loved it. I used a Pinot Noir that was recommended by the guy at the liquor store and finished with a garlic infused olive oil.

I really liked this recipe. I made two changes though. I added some whipped cream into the egg yolk mixture and substituted Tuaca (an Italian liquor) for the rum. I only gave it four stars cause I thought it was missing something. Maybe more dark chocolate next time. ""

My mother made this for dinner after watching the show and served it with a similar soup. It was VERY delicious. Roasting the tomatoes makes all the difference in the world...so don't substitute anything for them. I LOVE the cilantro flavor dipped in the creamy soup!"

This was pretty good! It wasn't as creamy as I was hoping. I'm sure I could have added more cream to get this effect, but I didn't want the extra calories. Overall, pretty good. I probably won't make it again though. DONT SKIP THE SHERRY! Gives the best flavor!
