    This is the second time I have made this recipe. It is delicious and easy - not to mention they look very pretty. I doubled the recipe for our family. These are very tasty - I am planning on making them for company next weekend - they go really well with lemon scones!

    This was my first attempt at souffle-making--it was very easy (once I got the eggs separated) and delicious. My two-year-old devoured it! I used parmesan cheese and chopped chives.
