Reviewed Chocolate Mousse Crepes
"This recipe was delicious! I've never tasted or cooked crepes before, but I'm so glad I tried it. The chocolate crepes with the mousse filling and the mint bisque was the perfect combination of flavors. And with the raspberry garnish, it tasted even better! Also the presentation of this recipe is amazing, the colors work together so well.
Though I almost ruined the chocolate mousse filling, I was still waiting for my sabayon to thicken and I figured I'd get ahead of myself and start to whisk half the whipped cream into the chocolate. But then because that sat for too long it completely hardened and I had to really work the sabayon into the chocolate until it was smooth again. But it was much more work then necessary. So make sure your sabayon is ready to add right after you whisk half of the whipped cream into the chocolate.
Reviewed Cheese Souffle
"I've never tasted a souffle before, none the less cooked one, so I had no idea what to expect. The recipe wasn't too difficult, though I had watched the episode with Alton Brown first, and that definitely helped. He explained a lot if it so much more than just the recipe does. The souffle came out perfect according to the recipe. It was airy, and stayed puffed up for a good 5-10 minutes while we all enjoyed it.
Although after cooking another souffle recipe, "Incredibly Creamy Souffles" which was a recipe for plain mini souffles, dumped out of their muffin tins when they were done cooking into a heavy cream sauce, and then cheese melted on top, I realized that recipe was much more enjoyable. The texture of the souffles was so much better, maybe because the cheese wasn't baked into it giving it a slimy, oozy texture, but rather melted on top so you could still enjoy the taste of the cheese. "
Reviewed Sponge Cake
"Sponge cake? More like rubber cake...
This recipe is a disaster. I was assigned to bake a sponge cake, and although I should have read the reviews on the recipe before choosing it, I usually trust Food Network to provide delicious, edible recipes. This recipe created an inedible, eggy, rubber mat. I could pick it up and wobble it around in the air like a floor mat. Not how a sponge cake should taste at all.
I learned the importance of reading reviews on recipes before using them though!"
