Reviewed Chocolate Eclairs
"This was my first time attempting eclairs. I thought the pastry cream was very easy to make and tasted fabulous, not chalky as one poster stated. In fact, this may be my new go to recipe for pastry cream! Making the shell was easy as well. I did need that 4th egg. I ended up splitting the shells in half and sandwiching the cream in between. I"

"Made for our holiday party at work. Turned out fabulous. I used Lindt chocolate and Lindt Creamy White Chocolate bars. Turned out beautifully. Followed directions without deviations. No separation of the layers. Just made again for my husbands birthday. This time I couldn't find the creamy white bars so just used classic white instead. I a"
Reviewed Parker House Rolls With Sea Salt
"These were fantastic! Soft and buttery. I was making ahead to freeze for Thanksgiving. I used a small cookie scoop to pull off pieces of dough so each piece was fairly uniform. The first batch I forgot to punch down after the initial rise so i was worried they wouldn't be right. Boy was I wrong! I let them sit overnight in the fridge as the r"

"Never made caramel before. First try went from golden amber color to black within seconds. I had to pour it out and start over. 360 was way too hot, second try was done around 340-350. After that though everything was perfect. No problems getting the cake out of the pan either. Cake was beautiful, moist and delicious. I disagree with the ot"

"Very easy recipe and easy to adapt to what you have on hand. I only had a cup and a half of cream and a quart of reduced fat milk. I didn't have any fennel seeds. Very tasty. The almonds are a nice twist. I thought it could be a little sweeter though. Next time I'm going to use a cup of sugar instead of 2/3.""
"So easy and so good! Only took a few minutes of prep work. I did roast my own peppers since my father's garden was overflowing with them. I also used vegetable broth since my husband is a vegetarian. My father didn't think he would enjoy pepper soup. He took one taste and said he was bringing me more peppers to make another batch of soup just ""
"So easy and so delicious! I did substitute store bought seasoned croutons from the bakery dept. at the supermarket in place of the homemade. Other than that, I followed exactly. I was quite surprised by how tasty the reduced balsamic vinegar was. Loved it! I was never a huge fan of cucumbers, but mixed in with the baby heirlooms and the wonde""

"Very simple to make. A bit heavy with the salt measurements. Next time I'll cut back. Still worth 5 stars though. Ina never fails.""
I'm a Food Network and HGTV junkie. Love spending time in the kitchen cooking and baking. I am better than a novice but not by much. I'm much better at following someone else's recipe than creating my own. I do try to create occasionally....or rather, I modify.
