This was okay. I think it would be good with double the celery and a few more spices (like marjoram, thyme...) and maybe some more onion. Of course, I cooked mine outside the turkey so keep that in mind when deciding whether to try it for yourself.

Oh my! This was really yummy, but a bit sweet. I would probably reduce the sugar a bit next time.

Great "hard" glaze. We used it on gingerbread men and it worked wonderfully. I will use less liquid next time, though, because my glaze ran over the sides of the cookies and wouldn't keep its designs.

People (I think typically people who don't live in strong mexican-american neighborhoods like some of us do) seem to incorrectly judge Mexican food because they think it is supposed to be something it isn't (i.e. confusing it with southwestern faire and thinking for some reason that Mexican=spicy - that's not necessarily true). This recipe is an excellent example of classic, authentic, delicious Mexican food. Before you make it and then give it a low rating for not having enough flavor, understand that this is basically a beef stew. Just because it is authentic mexican doesn't mean it is supposed to be spicy. As long as you expect the right thing, you won't be disappointed. For those of you near-the-southern-border people looking to make your favorite taco/burrito meat at home, this recipe is great. You can make it spicy if you want to, of course - but don't give the recipe a bad rating...it's VERY good!

Wonderful! I'm so glad to have found a traditional recipe that I can make in my bread machine (I don't have the time my grandmother did to do it all by hand!). I made homemade poppyseed filling and they were to die for - just like Grandma's!

These would have been great but, yowza - that's a LOT of cardamom. Cardamom is a very strong flavor and 1 teaspoon is just TOO much! I will make these again, but I'm going to use 1/2 the amount.

Oh my gosh, this is SO GOOD! I didn't have celery salt, and I used lowfat mayo...still it was incredibly yummy. My husband said it was the best fish he's ever eaten- I agree. Wow--thank you!!!

This was good but WAY too sweet. I made it a second time using only 1/2 cup sugar in the fruit mixture and it was PERFECT. Yummy--thank you!

This is wonderful! Now I'm going to try it without cocoa and see if I can make a white cake with it. Yay--I can have cake again!

This rocks! I've been eating it for lunch (with pita) every day this week. Yum! If it is on the dry side, just add water by the teaspoon until it's the creamy texture you want.
