Incredible soup! Pay attention to the details - came out perfectly. Will wow your most discriminating guests. Would suggest serving with a nice dry white wine that is crisp with some floral aroma, perhaps green
peach, spice and melon or apricot/citrus.

I am a Kale lover. Very quick and simple salad with nice lime flavor. The cotija was a perfect balance for the kale and acid of the lime. All my guests devoured along with the apricot-smoked tacos.

Five star's for sure. Great flavors and ditto on the delicious and easy. The salsa was a fresh accompaniment that did not overpower the wonderful taste of the grilled meat. We're not lamb fans so I did substitute flank steak and came out perfectly!

Thought this was pretty simple. Great flavors and easy to make ahead (kabobs, relish & glaze). Have served for bridal showers as well as casual barbecues. Healthy, delicious with some great flavors. Don't necessarily need the tortillas.

Fabulous! Definitely a little work - have been making them for years. Very tasty and delicious - lots of flavor and something a little different. I did let the sauce cook down a little longer than recommended.

Awesome dish! Came out perfectly - cooked to perfection and moist. Both filling and sauce were filled with flavor. Cooked it for a wine group and they raved about the dish. Paired nicely with a Pinot Noir.

Easy & tasty. The Lemongrass Simple syrup brings an unusual dimension. We were unable to find Passion Fruit nectar but unsweetened Papaya was a nice substitute. All our guests loved it - light and refreshing."

Delicious! Great for a nice hot summer afternoon or evening! This was a light, tasty, and not overly sweet sparkling cocktail. Wonderful beginning to an evening meal, gathering with friends or a "girls night in." Fruity and bubbly! We'll definitely enjoy again."

5 star taste - my guests loved it. I had the same issues with the cheese and wine separating. We ended up adding a lot more cheese so that it was not too soupy along with some cornstarch - eventually ended up fine. Next time I'd toss all the grated cheese with some corstarch prior to adding to the wine like many "fondue" recipes called for. Th"
