About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Everything! I love experimenting with new things, esp. gluten free. I'm GI but can't gather up the willpower to do it!
My cooking tragedies
Roux boiled over so I took off the heat, spilled everywhere... then the pot got stuck so when prying it off it spilled all over my arm... pain!

Exquisite Pizza Sauce
This was FABULOUS! It was a little on the sweet side, which I liked, but if that's not up your alley then I'd half the honey. I did cook this on a stovetop for maybe 20-30 minutes just below a simmer to help meld the flavors a little bit. Absolutely loved this!!!

Chocolate Ganache
This was pretty good- the store didn't have any more bittersweet, so I had to use 2 ounces bittersweet and 6 ounces semisweet. It still wasn't very sweet AT ALL, so in the future I'm going to use all semisweet. I didn't use the rum, however, so I'm sure that really affected the taste.

Cream Puffs I
These turned out great. First time making cream puffs and world-traveling, tough critic dad gave it "restaurant quality." Definitely a keeper! I made a chocolate ganache to drizzle on top, and I also took half the pastry filling and mixed it with some ganache to make chocolate ones. Super delish!
