It was good, but not great. I loved the episode (first time I've seen his show), so I wanted to try the soup. I've never roasted carrots for a soup so I wanted to give it a try. Don't get me was good. I will do again, as it's quick. "

Yum! Thought I'd give it a whirl. No need to use whole milk or unsalted butter. I used skim and didn't have unsalted butter on hand. I was just careful not to use more salt (kosher, of course).

My family loved it. I've never made one of her dishes, but this one sparked my interest. Was time consuming, but worth it. My husband told me to try with spicy sausage next time. Also, no matter what meat you use, be sure to drain it. ""

This was so easy and came out perfect. I followed the advice and added more cornstarch and added about a cup more of berries, though. Couldn't hurt. I made it for Christmas dinner. Needless to say, there wasn't a crumb left. Also, the pastry was very good!!! This is a winner. ""

Very good and very easy. My husband loved it. I added another leek. Didn't think one was enough. Two mid-sized leeks. I forgot to buy the goat cheese. Will try next time and there will, definitely, be a next time. Didn't miss it, though.

Very good, indeed. My husband loved it, as did I. In addition to the posted ingredients I added a leek (white part) and a celery stalk. You could add two. It's the first time I made it, but I think the celery and leek helped make it more flavorful.
