"tkarinas--why do you even send in a revue? You are not reviewing the recipe. Pay attention! This is delicious."

"next time I will add a little bit more coffee mix to the crumbled cookies on the bottom. I thought they were too crunchy, other than that it was quick and easy !"

"I'm sure the recipe is good BUT you really shouldn't call it tiramisu. Tiramisu is made with brandy, coffee, chocolate and cream. This is NOT tiramisu! This is a pudding treat."

"I agree with every single review except the one from tkarinas. Just a suggestion, this is to rate a recipe you have tried or based on would try because it is something you like. I also love tiramisu. This was so incredibly easy and yummy, yummy, yummy... oh did I say it was good???"

"Fantastic, simple, healthy and delicious. I agree with those of you who questioned why tkarinas would review a recipe for a treat she/he would never have in her/his home or why Taste of Home would even accept his/her non review."
