Reviewed Uncommonly Good Bread Pudding

Jan 28, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Oh boy! I wish I had read some of the reviewers' comments before making this recipe. The amounts of sugar and butter involved are criminal - that's why it was truly "uncommonly good"!!! And it smelled incredible too. When I make this again, I am definitely cutting down on those two bad, delicious ingredients...

This was good and easy to make, except that it was a bit too sweet for my husband and me. What worked really well, though, was adding orange zest to the chocolate mixture after it had cooled. That added a new flavor dimension.

I would make this again with some minor adjustments. I thought the soup was a bit too thick, so I would use less cornstarch next time. I also doubled the amount of ginger. For the flavor, I used 2 tbsp of soy sauce instead of one, and that made a big difference. My husband added a spicy oil to his serving, and that came out pretty awesome.

Thanks Aarti! This was amazing, and so easy too. The rose water made everything extra special. I used 1/2 cups of sugar and, although it was a bit on the sweet side, my husband I didn't think it was too much. I am definitely going to make this again!

Reviewed Diana's Favorite Lemon Mousse Cheesecake

Jan 2, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this to bring to a dinner party, but will have to go with plan B.
Pros:
- This lemon mousse is really, really tasty.
- It is light and fluffy, and not too lemony.
Cons:
- 18 graham crackers make way too much crust. Mine didn't hold together when it was time to unmold.
- I followed all...

I like my cheesecake to be on the lighter side, and this worked beautifully. I've made this twice, and it received amazing reviews each time. Someone even thought I had bought it from a special cheesecake bakery. "What? You made this?" they said. I replied, "with some help from Paula." Thanks for a great recipe!

I don't use any other chili recipe. This is it! It's so easy, it's quick, and the flavors are wonderful! I did substitute the tomato paste with pasta sauce I had on hand. It worked great! I have done this recipe 4 times in the past 2 months or so, and my family still asks for it.
