Chef John's Boston Cream Pie
The only things I changed when I made this was the cream/milk ratio in the cream filling and semi-sweet chocolate instead of dark. I didn't have whole milk so instead of 1cup each I used 1 1/2 cups heavy cream and 1/2 cup 2% milk. The flavor of both the cream and the chocolate was wonderful. Unfortunatly neither set up well. I ended up cooking the cream on medium, not low, for 2 minutes just to get it to look like the video and it sat in the fridge for 4 hours and the freezer for 15 minutes and it still just ran out of the cake. It seemed to me like there was way to much of it even if it had been firmer. The chocolate never got as thick as he shows. I put it in the fridge for a little bit to try to firm it up before I put it on and it still ran. We ended up dumping the whole cake into a bowl to contain the run off. We are eating it as if it were a pudding. The flavor is wonderful, but it is admittedly the second ugliest thing I've ever made.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake
This was really easy to make. Everyone just loved it! I did have some trouble with it browning and cracking on top pretty bad.

Perfect Turkey Gravy
This was really easy to make. I've never done gravy before and wanted something simple to follow. Everyone seemed very happy with it.
