    I received this as a gift from my sister who went to JC book signing, so it is autographed. I think if it wasn't signed I would have gotten rid of it, the recipes just do not appeal that much and are very "cheffy".

    This is an enjoyable book to read but the recipes are incredibly hard. I have yet to attempt one.

      This was a different recipe for our family, but we all enjoyed it. I added 1T red wine vinegar and 1tsp sugar. For the spices, I cut the salt from 1T to 1t because we prefer less salty dishes. Also, I cut the hot sauce because of the amount of cayenne, but could have easily added it. I think it would have been good, but I worried about my 13 & 15 yo boys being able to eat it. I will definitely make this again.
