Spanish Flan

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
The texture is a little too dense for my family, but the taste is great. I think the recipe is good, I probably overcooked it. I definitely suggest using a water bath for this dessert since I baked two, one with waterbath, one without, and the one baked in water came out silky smooth. When using a water bath, be sure to cover ramekins loosely so the steam can go in. Never cover the cup too tight. Trust me, I learnt it the hard way.

Brie Cheese Appetizer

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
I bought the pastry shells instead of pastry sheets, so I ended up using 2 shells to create a big bundle of brie cheese & apricot preserves. The result was still great! My family loved it! Thank you for such a wonderful & easy recipe!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
This is the 3rd time I have attempted to make a cheesecake, and both times I ended up having a cracked, puffed, soggy cheesecakes. This time, OH MY GOD, the cheesecake came out perfectly, without cracks, dent or soggy bottom. For those of you who want a smaller version of this cake. I used a 8 x 1.5 inch regular cake pan, and scaled the ingredients for the filling to half. Just like most of the other chefs, I did the waterbath and left the cheesecake in the oven for 6 hours and fridged for 12 hours afterwards. One thing to remeber is that you MUST take out the waterbath immediately after baking is done, otherwise the cake will be over cooked. I live in new york, and this cheesecake comes really close to the famous cheesecake place, as a matter of fact, my husband says this cheesecake is even BETTER than the brand name ones. Thank you, Chantal!

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2006
WOW! This salad is one of the best salad I have ever had! My whole family, including my meat-lover husband and father loved the dish. Some changes that I made: I used bananas instead of avocado (learnt that from Asian De Cuba), used crumbled gorgonzola cheese, omitted the mustard & used balsamic vinegar since I don't have them on hand, and chopped the pears to mix it with the salad. This salad idea is fantastic! Thank you!

Bacon and Cheddar Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2006
My whole family loved the stuffed mushrooms. Everyone thought it took me hours to make. The filling actually made 10 mushrooms in total. To cut a little calories, I used 1/4 cup of fat free cheddar cheese. Thank you!

Peanut Butter Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
Good basic recipe. Needs some more salt (if you like savory) or sugar (if you like sweet). To avoid dry texture, I used water bath and added 2 cups peanut butter. Before putting it in the oven, brush the top with a coat of milk.
