Best French Toast (Bread Pudding!) Ever

Replied to beef bourguignon

Hi megan! Dry off the meat before flouring. Only lightly floor the beef before searing. And, you might also try lowering the flame to prevent burning while allowing the meat to brown a little more slowly. Good luck!

I'm giving the recipe three stars because everybody else's review said they loved it, and I must not like kale -- because I didn't like this at all. It smelled and tasted like a sea-weedy low-tide at the shore. I even looked up on the internet pictures of fresh kale to make sure I bought the right vegetable. I did! I am, overall, a vegetable lover"

Best Pound Cake Ever! Dense, heavy -- in a good way, moist, flavorful, buttery, yokey, awesome, nice vanilla flavor. Everything you'd want in a pound cake-style cake. Freezes beautifully. Travels well. Love, love, love this cake!""

And I've used jug red wine as well as a $15 bottle of red, and both fit the bill. I also buy the jarred pearl onion and dump the onions and the juice into the pot. Lately, I haven't had any special bacon on...

Okay, this is dead easy to make, and maybe that's why all the rave reviews. But, for my taste buds, it doesn't taste like something homemade to me. The cake mix as the base for the crust, I think I would have preferred the flavor if Paula had provided a from-scratch recipe for this. I do like the combination of the soft cake-like crust and the 'gooey'...
