MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 12, 2010

"I have not made it yet, but when summer really hits here in Colo. Spgs. I will. I cannot understand the reviews saying that it sounded like the recipe called for chilies. There is a difference between chilies and chilled. I hope people will read the recipe once again. BD"

"Goodness gracious, vieux. The recipe title is CHILLED Melon Soup, because it is CHILLED before serving, not because it has chilies in it."

MY REVIEW

"I would make this again with severe modifications. Your title suggests the use of chilies. Shouldn't you use the bloody things? No one will detect 1/8 tsp. This is a decent recipe but to use a descriptor such as kick of cayenne? 1/8 tsp? Your friends are tasting a boring cantaloupe and orange juice with ...... nothing. Pump up the cayenne or chili of choice to at least 1/2 tsp or better, add some sea salt and play. sorry but as it is... boring"
