Basic Truffles

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
This was my method: I used 1 & 1/4 cup or so Ghirardelli semi-sweet chips, 2/3 cup heavy cream, 2 tbsp unsalted butter, and the vanilla. I made several flavors but quite a few people concurred that the vanilla/peppermint was the best. I rolled them in powdered sugar, rather than attempting to coat them with a shell (impossible for me!) Freezing the blobby little melon-baller scoopings for a half hour and rolling with my hands after that was the only way they came anywhere close to attractive. I gave them to tons of family this Christmas and everyone loved them. (My brother in law especially, he must have asked at least 4 times if I was absolutely sure they were all gone- I think he searched my fridge for good measure just in case I was holding out!)

Cream Of Garlic Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
This recipe is a really easy one to customize. I use half & half instead of heavy cream, first of all. Secondly, this recipe is fantastic if you add veggies. I cook onions separately. Puree it early, then add the cooked onion, a half head of cauliflower, and 2 zucchinis. Simmer them about 15 min, very VERY gently so you don't curdle the milk and cream.
