Tried it yesterday for a a family dinner. It was rich and a little too sweet for my taste. Also, when dipping the lady fingers don't dip too long. I did and it became a little to soggy and watery. I think it would be better to dip a pastry brush and brush the coffee solution on. The cookies really soaks it up fast.

Meatballs were alright but needed more flavor, ie, italian spices. Others have said it was too salty I just don't use a lot of salt period so I err on the side of caution on most recipes until I taste it. I only used ground pork, and beef, I don't do veal. I baked them on my broiler pan and let the fat drain through. As for the sauce I used my...

I made them this am and thought they were very good. However I agree with the person that said to cut down on the flour and that they were a little too cake like. This receipe makes lot of pancakes, more for a brunch with more people, will probably cut it in half next time. I also improvised a couple of other things. I used cottage cheese instead...

Very good and easy to make. The portions were just right for 2 people. I made the compound butter ahead of time. Instead of salt and pepper I used a little Mrs. Dash on pork along with the flour. Very tasty. My husband and I both have to watch our sodium intake, but especially him. I boiled some small red potatoes to have with it, the compound...

Made this for dinner tonight. My husband and I both liked it. It was easy to prepare and it came out just the way it was suppose to. I think it is a good thing that someone is stepping up and trying to teach people to cook with fresh instead of pre-packaged ingredients that are full of lots of sodium and other things that are harmful to people...

I made this for dinner at my stepdaughter, and her husbands. I am a good cook but her husband has seemed to be among my worst critics also my grandson. This is a farming family and unless you make a white or chocolate cake with real whipped cream frosting your not excepted .It was a big thumbs up from the grandson and his dad had a second piece....

Made this for a quick breakfast with milk for my husband and I. We sometimes do that and have a bear claw and a piece of fruit with small glass of milk for breakfast. Thought it was good, however puff pastry didn't puff like it should. Bought it at local grocery store and have had problems in past with things not being the freshest. At any rate...
