This shop may not be fancy, and the bakery display cabinet may not be the usual way to show off pizza, but it is really good; and popular among the locals. We have had several different types of pizza and have never been disappointed."

We waited for over 40 minutes to place our order and once inside it smelled great. But...the burgers and onion rings were average. Certainly not worth the wait or hype. Guess Guy got the special burger that they save for the celebrities!"

As usual, Ina's recipe was flawless. I made a change to this recipe though, I used key limes instead of lemons. They tasted tart, smooth and very fresh, like summertime. The recipe is easy to follow and they came out terrific. I will definitely make this again!"

WOW, talk about rich and wonderful. I have never made homemade brownies and these were fantastic. I made these without the peanut butter and just made them with walnuts. They were easy to make and I had so much I shared with my neighbors. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed them!"

I was a little bit disappointed in this recipe, because the cake was a little thick and dense; it did have good flavor though. As for the filling, I guess I was expecting a better tasting filling, more like a frosting, not a custurd. I just barely had enough filling for six pies. Not sure I will make these again."

I usually love Ina's recipes but not this one. I followed the recipe exactly; the flavor was ok, but it was very mild and I couldn't get the potato and leeks to smooth out, so I had a grainy and chunky soup. I even went back to re check the recipe to see if I had left anything out.
For the money that I spent on the ingredients and the amount...

I made this recipe for my husband's office and everyone LOVED it!. It was tender and moist.
I used canned corn instead of fresh, which may have made the difference in the baking time. I had to bake it for 55 minutes instead of the 35 minutes in the recipe. I will also add a little bit more cayanne pepper next time to give it a little more...

Great recipe! I did change it a bit though, I didn't add the espresso because I don't like coffee, so I put in a splash of vanilla to the chocolate. My family loved it!""
