"I made this for our 4th of July clam bake because I wanted something different than just plain old fruit. It was fantastic! I used watermelon, cantaloupe, green grapes, blueberries and strawberries, omitted the poppy seeds and added chopped walnuts. What a lovely, refreshing salad! A big hit!"

"This was pretty tasty and quick. I added Boca (soy) crumbles that I had mixed up with some taco seasoning for the added protein and texture and mixed some cheese into the bean mixture as well as sprinkling on top. Also topped w/ homemade guacamole. I really enjoyed it and will definitely make this again!"

"I halved the onion amount and added carrots and potatoes to this dish. It was a hit- -next time I think I''d half the dijon mustard as well. It was a bit overwhelming. A great recipe for a cold Sunday!"

"The flavor of this dish was excellent but I was a bit disappointed in the consistency. After it was put on your plate it kind of "dried" out, lacking the creaminess of a regular alfredo sauce. I substituted gorgonzola for feta, as I made the gorgonzola mushroom stuffed beef tenderloin (recipe from this website!) for the entree. I added some heavy cream to make it a bit creamier. Really tasty tho!"

I made this for my boyfriend for Valentine''s Day- - -he said it was one of the best meals he''s ever had! The picture looked really beautiful and I was concerned that it would be difficult to make- -not the case. This couldn''t have been easier yet super impressive. I used raspberry preserves instead of currant and shiraz instead of merlot- - -it''s what I had on hand. If you really want to impress someone, make this dish!

I omitted the red food coloring in the dough and rolled it out to make small heart cut out cookies, added the red food coloring to the melted white chocolate instead. These are really tasty and quite impressive looking- -no one would think that they are so quick and easy to make. A definite winner!!

I used whole wheat flour on these- -turned out great. They had a very hearty consistency that satisfied many a sweet tooth! Really really good cookies.

These were good but I would double the cheddar next time. They were a bit dry and not cheesy enough.
