Death by Chocolate Mousse
Great taste, nice texture and really rich. BUT, don't do what I did - once crust was out of oven (5 minutes only per other reviews), I thought I'd "double-chocolate-death" it by putting a layer of chocolate chips on top of crust, letting them melt and then spreading it around. I was so proud of myself until after I put mousse on top and refrigerated for 24 hours. When I tried to cut it, it was almost impossible to get a knife through the soft mousse and hard chocolate (and then crust) without getting cut pieces really messy. Next time, I will go with recipe as written - I really didn't need that much more of a chocolate fix. I wonder if I had frozen the whole thing if it would have been so messy... Now that I've tried this recipe, I agree with those who put in cups or glasses (no crust). It would make a really nice presentation with just a slightly different "feel". I also used one tsp. dry coffee - can't do a comparison but did not seem to detract from recipe.

Easy Marinated Pork Tenderloin
Great recipe. Easy to make. I added 2 TBSP brown sugar and listened to those who cut the soy a bit. It made my pork taste a lot like Chinese Dumplings - great! It is good cooked as an au jus as well. Thanks.

Frosty Strawberry Squares
EXCELLENT! Picked it because it looked easy; it took a bit more time than I anticipated however. Suggestions: 1) I doubled crust - however, I baked it all on one cookie sheet - therefore there was too much of it on the pan and it took too long to get the nuts toasted. Next time I will use two pans to bake a double crust. 2) Eggs do not whip up well with the lemon, etc. in them at the start. Next time I will beat them almost to peaks and then add sugar,lemon juice and then stir in strawberries and hope they will peak better, then add the whipped cream; (way I solved it this time was to add another egg white which helped a bit...) 3) I solved the strawberry dilemma by taking others' advice and chopping them up really well. 4) I let it freeze overnight and took out 15 minutes before serving. Great taste. Thank you.
