    "Exquisite. Of course, I altered it some since I didn't have gluten flour (just regular), and I did use nonfat yogurt, but it was wonderful. Will be making it again for a French dinner."

    "Lovely. I wanted something to take to a friend's house, and this fit the bill by being healthy for me and edible for others. I don't keep buttermilk on hand, so I substituted almond milk and yogurt in a 30-70 ratio. I also didn't use whole wheat flour because we're currently out. I used all brown sugar, no granulated... and it came out great: ..."

    "I love this recipe because I never have anything besides skim milk (or more recently rice/almond milk) on hand. Since you suggested other fruits, I tried lemon preserves with the bananas and raisins, and it gave it much more grown-up flavor. I've tried it with just bananas and raisins, though, and it's very homey-heartwarming. I also sub in can..."

    "Brilliant recipe. I halved it because we only had one other couple visiting for our Mexican-themed dinner. I did use Wal-Mart Monterey Jack and subbed in green pepper and chili powder because I didn't have the canned chili. But it was absolutely superb! Thank you!"

    "This was great. I didn't have any tortillas on hand, so I used a few chips instead. I made a few substitutions for what I had on hand---onion for shallot, turkey deli meat for turkey bacon and I left out the green peppers since I don't like them. I also tried some goat cheese in place of the mozzarella and highly recommend it.This was such a h..."

    "This bread was delicious! Hubby approved, too. I didn't have chives, so I did sub in diced onion and parsley. I also used low-fat cottage cheese and fresh mushrooms.We're having it with steaks, but it was also fabulous dipped in olive oil and spices---just like somthing you'd get at a restaurant and a great New Year's Eve treat. Thanks!"

    "Brilliant. My husband and I served this for my mother when she came into town. She was on a strict diet and couldn't eat dairy or grains or sugar or butter, etc, etc... but this she loved!I don't even like fish and this was divine. No fishy taste just a hearty, savory dish that feels gourmet. The parsley to garnish really looked elegant.THAN..."

    "I think I'll always put some cauliflower in my mashed potatoes. The texture is slightly lighter and the flavor difference is subtle. I even added a bit of broccoli and it was hardly noticeable. I also didn't use any butter or sour cream but added some part-skim ricotta (lower in fat) to add richness. Paprika, salt, pepper, and garlic were just per..."
