I love the microwave-easy concept and the flavor, but haven't been able to make the consistency turn out right. When I followed it exactly as written, it "broke" and curdled to the point where I had to discard it. Then I tried shortening the time and decreasing the power, and that helped, but it still didn't have the creamy-smooth and thick consistency I expected. I'd love it if the test kitchen would take another crack at this one.
