Getting better at cooking, but need help!

Re:Classic Pound Cake

Dense, rich, but not velvety. The recipe suggests cooking time of 1 hour and 20 to 25 minutes. My cake was overdone at 1 hour and 10 minutes using the size pan recommended... hard on outside, slightly tender on inside. Good idea to check at 45 minutes and watch closely for browning and doneness.

Re:Chocolate-Glazed Peanut Butter Tart

This was very tasty but could have been better if I had used a different type of peanut butter. The all natural peanut butter suggested is usually oily and doesn't form a solid enough filling, so when I cut the tart the peanut butter seaped out of the sides, which did not make for an elegant dessert like the picture. I would have to have a super craving to make it again, because I had thought it would be a hard dish to mess up.

Re:Barley Risotto with Mushrooms & Gremolata

I made this dish as a side to beef roast. What a hit! I'd never made any kind of risotto or cooked an oyster mushroom in my life. Amazing flavor. Learned a lot. Really appreciate the recipe, which is a perfect substitute for potatoes when you want to add surprise and a tad more elegance. Thank you!
