Re:Chocolate Soufflé Cookies

I've been making these ever since the recipe came out in one of the holiday dessert specials FC used to do (miss those!). I love to make them when people are gluten intolerant, and they have been my Darwin day celebration cookie for years too. Highly recommend them, but use good quality chocolate, I use Scharfenberger, or its a waste.

Re:Thai Red Curry with Chicken & Vegetables

Great easy dish, but too hot for me with the 3 TBLS of curry paste. Next time I will use 1 to 1 1/2, I use Mai Ploy brand, don't know if it's extra hot or not, but it has great flavor. I also used light coconut milk just to save on a few calories and fat. Even with the heat being a bit much for me, it still had great flavor and I will be making again.

Re:Linguine with Lemon-Garlic Shrimp

This was tasty and easy to make. I like the creaminess of using the marscopone but it sure ups the calories and fat. Nice for a once in awhile treat even if you are trying to eat healthy like me.

Re:Tom Collins

This is really really good. You can't even compare drinks like this made with real homemade simple syrup and the stuff they use in some (bad) bars and sell in supermarkets. If you have never had a Tom Collins made with fresh ingredients, then you have never really had a Tom Collins! Try it, making simple syrup is as the name says, simple!!

Re:Coffee-Cocoa Snack Cake

Very good, simple enough for weeknight dessert or can be dressed up with frosting, glaze etc. if you like. We liked it just with powdered sugar, but I think a glaze would be nice if you want it sweeter. I am always happy with a moist cake, and this fits the bill!

Re:Grilled Asian Pork Tenderloin with Peanut Sauce

This had a nice flavor, it stuck to the grill, but maybe I didn't put enough oil on it. I think it could use some heat however for a bit more flavor so next time I am adding some chilies as previous reviewers did. I served it with coconut cilantro rice and grilled rum infused pinapple from another website and that went really well with it.

Re:Grilled Thai Chicken Breasts with Herb-Lemongrass Crust

Just made this for dinner tonight, really, really good! I eat a lot of chicken breasts and get tired of the same ol same ol, anyway these had TONS of flavor and you can adjust the heat. I halved the recipe to try it just for me and my husband, but will make this for guests at a BBQ in the near future for sure! Finding the lemon grass was tricky in my area, but finally found it and I believe you cannot do without it in this recipe, it adds that certain something that makes it really great.

Re:Chocolate Mousse Layer Cake

I have made this cake a few times using the chocolate curls method to decorate it. It looked beautiful, like from a bakery and my guests loved it. I have also made the mousse seperately to use for other recipes or just to have the mousse which is a good recipe in itself. As some of the other reviewers mentioned I also only cut it into two layers, it was still nice, just not as tall. Three layers looks pretty tricky, but I will give it a try one of these days when I am feeling braver! I have Abigail Dodge's cookbook and always really enjoy her recipes, they are creative and impressive, but not too much for the home baker to manage.

Re:Chocolate Stout Cake

To the last reviewer, Kits, no it's not supposed to be 7.5 CUPS of flour, its supposed to be 7.5 OUNCES of flour which comes out to be about 1 2/3 C. flour so if you really used 7 and 1/2 C. flour I guess you would have a brick! This is a very tasty cake when made properly, you should give it another try! I really like it and so far I have liked all the recipes for desserts I have tried using Guiness beer.

Re:Double-Mushroom Ragoût

I made the tenderloin and this ragout for my annual new years eve. dinner party and OMG it was so good! A huge hit with my guests. If you like mushrooms you should make this recipe. However, as someone who eats a limited amount of fat, this is definitely a "special occaision, once in a great while" recipe due to all the butter and cream (of course that's what makes it taste so darn good)!!!
