Love to cook! I especially love to learn about baking and cooking
My favorite things to cook
I love to make comfort food. Especially any kind of roast! I am trying to learn how to cook traditional Pakistani/Indian food!
My cooking triumphs
My triumph is also my tragedy.
Every year for Christmas, I make something new. 2 years ago, I decided to make early grey vanilla chocolate truffles. I had never made them before and decided to give it a go.
If you had never made truffles, they are messy. I MEAN MESSY! And, they take forever to set. I started on December 23rd and had to let them sit over night before their second coating. Christmas eve at about 2pm, I start to melt the chocolate in my double boiler. You need to keep the chocolate moving, and so I did. With a spatula.
Kept it going..... Enter in friend who comes over to see how I am doing
" Tara.... Ummm... Why are you using a stick?"
Me " What? Im using my spatula... silly.."
Friend: " Are you making swirled truffles?"
Me: "No, why?"
Friend: " I think you just melted your spatula into your chocolate...."
Needless to say, I was out a spatula and my gourmet milk chocolate. ON CHRISTMAS EVE!!!
Had to use regular store bought milk chocolate and now use a wooden spoon
