WAY too much thyme. Totally overpowers everything else. I like the heat, though"

The coating was a little thin, but I like it crispy. I read some other reviews and someone made hush puppies out of the batter so I followed suit. Man, oh, man!!! Best batter possible for that, definitely recommend""

I think there is an error! In his chicken enchilada recipe, the sauce is the exact same with one exception: Tomato Puree, NOT paste! That may be the problem. I made it tonight with the puree and it's ok. Needs a big hit of lime juice, but nothing super special""

I let mine sit for a week or so before they were the way I like them. Maybe just a tiny bit too sweet. This is my most favorite sushi filling, but I think next time I will use white vinegar to see how it comes out. But I am thrilled to have them!""

Really delicious and smelled so wonderful while it was boiling. I didn't buy the seasoning sauce (since it's mostly sugar, I just added that instead). Will definitely make it again""

Was a good start for me, did a few substitutions. Didn't have lemon, used rice vinegar, skipped on the anchovie and mustard (husband hates mustard) and doubled the W-sauce. Didn't add even half that amount of oil and used extra virgin. Threw in about 1/4 cup grated parm cheese (from a can). It was spicy and very tasty. ""

For people with allergies, this recipe is very easy to tweak!

Peanut: Use some other nut butter (more expensive

Wheat: Use semolina flour and bran or flax seed in place of the germ

Problem with eggs? Use an egg substitute + 3TB of soy, almond, or coconut milk. You could also substitute 1/4...

I jumped in to things too quickly, but they came out great. I just looked at the ingredient list and did my own thing, been making cookies forever after all. So, I didn't sift a thing, didn't use a disher, didn't chill the dough, only baked them for 9 minutes and they were perfect! I will definitely be making these again. For the people comin...

Really good. For people having trouble with burning the sugar, it's probably due to where you are. I'm in Fort Collins, which is around 4000 feet. Cooking temperatures LOWER as you increase in elevation! I would recommend watching the video online and going based on color. I pulled mine at 330* and it was perfect. I did the other things the...

Ugly, but delicious. Mine did not brown at all, so they were little grey cookies, but man they were soooo good!!! I think I will dip them in chocolate to get them pretty. Chewy, sweet, just perfect. FYI: Always bring egg whites to room temp before whipping, it's just the way I've always known to do it and it always comes out perfect""

It was just kind of ok, really. The skin was not crispy at all, kind of leathery. Overall not any real change in flavor (save for the really salty gravy even with low sodium broth). I will try it again, maybe it was a fluke.

Super delicious. We made it for an office party to go along with the homemade marshmallows (also unbelievable). It makes an enormous amount of mix! Big hit, nothing but good things to say.

Really amazing! I was worried about making this because I'm at 7500 feet, but they were delicious! I was also intimidated, candy making always seemed so hard. It couldn't be simpler! Most of my mallow stuck to the mixer and I thought for sure my mixer was going to burn out, but it all went off easy, and delicious. A hot soak for just a few minutes...

Super tasty. I used cayenne pepper instead of hot sauce and I didn't have any stuffing mix on hand (we make our own in this house) so I crushed up some croutons. They were so crunchy, had that wonderful pepper heat, and were just all around delicious.
