Trivia

Since the title and central theme of this movie "Just Desserts" is desserts, particularly chocolate, it's interesting to note that the main chef character said he added water to his chocolate concoction, a box to hold an engagement ring he was asked to make. When the other main chef character, his love interest, tastes the chocolate, she is so impressed with how it tastes, she faints. Anyone who has ever melted chocolate knows that allowing even the smallest hint of water to melted chocolate will cause it to "seize" and become irreparably grainy. The resulting confection has a mouth feel of mud. See more »

Just Desserts - A wonderful movie
27 October 2005 | by maryr978See all my reviews

I loved this movie, it was cute and funny! Lauren Holly was wonderful, she's funny and very believable in her role. Costas Mandylan was also very good, nice to look at too!! Brenda Vaccaro, as usual was a pleasure to watch, she did a great job with her character. It was a pleasure watching a movie that is funny, interesting and can be watched by the whole family. It's difficult to find nice wholesome movies anymore. Thank goodness for the Hallmark movies, they are wonderful! I wish I could buy it, if anyone knows where I could purchase this movie, please let me know!! I have purchase several Hallmark movies and am very happy with them. I hope I can buy this one!!
