Brazilian Style Flan (Pudim de Leite Condensado)
Followed the recipe exactly. Cooked it at the specified temperature, with a water bath, covered for the recommended amount of time (45 minutes). The flan did not turn out as a custard, but rather glorified scrambled eggs in a ramekin. I've never had trouble with custards cooked in a water bath before. This was very disappointing, I hate wasting food.

This was insanely good. I made it with some minor additions: 1/4tsp of baking soda as recommended by mjmcilmoyl and 3.5 cups of all purpose as recommended by Tisa A. I added the chopped garlic into the bread right before rolling it out and it was amazing. I also cooked it on a closed George Foreman grill, turning it 45 degrees once, so I got some wonderful crosshatching on the bread. What an awesome idea to use the Foreman! Hats off to whoever discovered this. I brushed it with melted butter and topped it with sesame seeds. This was really, really good. DH polished off three along with the curried lentils I made.

Far East Spiced Olive Oil
Worth Noting: The bacteria that causes botulism can grow in infused oils if they are stored for too long. Anything that may contain a trace of water, when placed in the oxygen free environment that oil provides, can be a breeding ground for Botulism. If you intend to make this oil, 1) use it within the week and 2) after allowing it to stay out on the counter for a few hours to infuse, refrigerate! This should reduce the chances of any botulism getting a foothold in the oil.
