Pastry Cream
Mine really had a noticeable floury taste. I did follow the recipe exactly except I used a very high quality vanilla extract and skim milk with 1/4 cup extra milk. I see some saying use whole milk or half and half, but I'm not sure if a fattier milk would do much to cut that flour taste. I plan to use it in a trifle and am thinking maybe I will mix it with some whipped cream to disguise that taste. Otherwise it was easy to make, and maybe with less flour or a little corn starch to replace some of the flour it would be better.

Sausage Stuffed Jalapenos
I made this recipe (X4) for a party, and people loved them. A couple of notes - I used half chorizo and half plain pork for the filling, and it really gave them some flavorful heat - though the porks do tend to leave a bit of grease laying around. Also, if you are halving and cleaning a few dozen jalapenos, DEFINITELY wear a pair of gloves. My hands were on fire like you can't believe for days - especially my nail beds on my hands - and it pretty much ruined the party for me. LOL. But people loved these...

Seared Tuna with Wasabi-Butter Sauce
The sauce is unique and delicious... people rave when I make this. I didn't have shallots but used a mild onion instead and it tasted fine. I am allergic to cilantro so left it out but still thought the sauce had an amazing flavor. Don't be worried about the wasabi - I fed it to someone who despises spicy things and he loved it. I paired this with braised bok choy -- basically briefly sauteed in butter and garlic on a high temperature so it was more wilted than cooked -- and it was fabulous. I have sometimes sprinkled the tuna steaks with colorful wasabi chickpeas that I got at the food co-op - it's a very classy presentation.
