Chocolate Ganache
Absolutely wonderful! I've only heard of the word ganache whispered thorough the cooking world's grapevine, and was scared of it since I could pronounce it. I am not renown for my cakes turning out perfectly - but I can promise you that this made a simple, impossible-to-screw-up chocolate cake worth a restaurant showcase! Using semi-sweet chocolate chips and some heavy whipping cream, it took no more than five minutes for me to drizzle it over the cake halves and another five to paint it with pretty swirls of a spatula! You can't go wrong with this!

Pinwheel Italian Calzones
The taste is awesome, however I ran into a issue when it came to the pinwheel part. It worked, no doubt - but I think I might have wrapped them too tightly. Wonderful on the outside, but SO soggy and doughy on the inside. I just don't think it had time to breathe in the oven. So, if I loosen up on the wrapping a bit, I think it'll be alright. Such a cute idea, though. If I perfect it next time, I think the kids will love them!

Chicken Pot Pie IX
Truly incredible, we cannot get enough of this! I love it, the kids love it, my boyfriend loves it! I've had to resort to buying small portable pot pie holders(the tin-foily ones at the supermarket) so all the people at my boyfriend's work can get some! I use the Oil Pie Crust recipe every time.
