    I don't get using sweetened condensed milk for caramel...if you're going through all the trouble to make caramel, why not make actual caramel? It just doesn't look very's so pale.

    Hey Andrew, I just wanna say that I took a stab at my first recipe from your show and it was this exact recipe, the Millionaire's Shortbread. It turned out perfectly, just as I imagined it and so, I wanted to thank you for sparking my desire to go ahead and try my hand at cooking. I will most definitely be trying out more of your stuff. Thanks and keep it up!

    I made this today and it was delicious albeit veeeery sugary, so share it with others instead of eating all by yourself ;) In case you can't find some of the (non-US) ingredients, substitute: - Corn sirup with maple or rice sirup - Brown sugar with cane sugar which you mix with some molasses - Kosher salt with regular salt, just much less of it as it's more potent

    She’s a chef on another food channel, Bon appétit. She has a series there, Gourmet Makes, in which she tries to make homemade versions of popular snacks. She’s had infamous trouble when attempting to temper chocolate for candy bars, and hates the tediousness of tempering
