Followed recipe exactly and they were good tasting, however, they were the extremely heavy and dense. The search continues....

Passover Chocolate Torte

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2007
I should preface this by saying I am NOT an experience baker, so my problems with this recipe could very well be due to my own lack of skill. I thought the torte was fine, but not anything special. I could have made brownies from a box and they would have been a lot easier and possibly tastier. I threw away the leftovers after the party. Here is what I had problems with: The torte ended up being pretty flat and fell apart when I released it from the pan(Not enough grease on the foil? Didn't let cool for full 10 minutes? Why the tin foil anyway?) It took a lot longer to bake than stated to get the center to be "set" and not gooey (maybe too long? Edges seemed a bit crispy, but the center was just no longer gooey when I took it out) The ground almonds did not grind very fine in my chopper, so it looked like it had bits of cous cous in it (I do not own a coffee grinder) I tried to follow the recipe pretty closely, except I did use real butter instead of pareve margarine (yes, I know it defeats the purpose of it being a "passover" torte). Also, I don't know if it matters, but I used semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of squares. The torte just didn't have the density and rich taste I was expecting. I will probaby not make this one again.

Easy Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2003
I love the flavor! Next time, in addition to making more sauce, I will try thickening it with cream of chicken soup so it can cover pasta better.
