  1. 5 Bright Stars! Absolutely delicous! (Was about to post this when I found you beat me to it.) Made them according to the recipe and they were great. Next time think I'll roast a little longer . . . the larger beans were still a bit 'too snappy', but still great! Would also be wonderful with just carrots! Thanks Susie!
  2. This was DELICIOUS!! Made as is and it turned out wonderful!! Made for Zaar Tag. Thanks susie! :)


<p>Hello from suburban Fort Worth, Texas! <br /> <br /><br /> <br />______________________________________________ <br /> <br /> <br />*My rating system defined* <br /> <br />Very few recipes really knock my socks off - I love to cook but am not a gourmet. <br />This said: <br /> <br />***** - met all my expectations in taste &amp; appearance; directions were clear &amp; easy to follow. <br /> <br />**** - fell slightly short of my expectations in taste or appearance or directions were faulty or not completely clear. <br /> <br />*** - mediocre taste and/or appearance; most likely a recipe that I would not use again without much modification. <br /> <br />** - taste and/or appearance was not to my liking; a recipe that I would not attempt to modify or use again. <br /> <br />* - taste was absolutely not to my liking (I can't imagine ever using this rating as I can generally tell by the ingredients if I will enjoy the finished product or not) <br /> <br /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br />&nbsp;<br />&nbsp;<br /><img src= alt= /> <br />&nbsp;<br /><br />&nbsp;</p>
