About this Cook
I love doing things around my home. Working on my flower garden, working on landscapeing, working on my veggie garden, playing with my stained glass, and I really enjoy cooking and baking. I love the idea of food art and making meals look beautiful as well as yummy.

Awesome! This is a wonderful base for so many flavors. I use skim milk and half and half. The eggs are not raw as after warming the eggs and sugar with the warmed cream, you put them back on to heat a bit longer. I have made this recipe adding Mexican Vanilla, roasted pecans, pineapple and fresh rosemary, chocolate hazelnut with chopped hazelnuts... I do vary on the amount of sugar according to what I plan to add. Example is Nutella for choc/hazelnut. It is a sweet addition, so I add only 1/3 cup sugar. This recipe will be my base recipe for a long time.
