    Dulce de Leche as a cake filling

    Made Andies DDL with the goat milk , and it came out wonderful. Thanks Also did the canned sweetened condensed milk and that came out very well also.
  4. "Mini Sampler ASSortment" Which would include 3 or however many don't give option of just one
  5. How do u keep the cookie dough from wrinkling when rolling btwn parchment? i have been using your recipe for cookies, which come out wonderful, but the sheets slide around when rolling. Tried putting silpat underneath which helps a little, but still have probs.
  6. I think this could also work, however you might risk drying out the custard before it sets producing a tough skin on top. The trick is to bake slowly, but not too slowly, and the thermodynamic qualities of the water bath help to even out the temperature so the edges don't bake much faster than the center, as well as slowing the dish temperature reaching the boiling point. It also adds moisture to the oven environment keeping the top of the custard from drying out quickly. Not sure what a "wittco" is - care to explain? ← it's a cook and hold.
  7. wow, i have same probs! some times it takes forever to set. I figured it had to do with yolks, smaller size,etc. i also filled up water high. now i will try less h20 version. Has anyone ever used wittco to bake them in? a lot of times ovens are in use and i have to use wittco and i get crusting on some. Creme brulee's can be a pain in the uknowwhat!

    Red Velvet Cake

    Here's one. Leite's Culinaria This is an exact duplicate of my mother's recipe which has been a christmas tradition in our house for over 40 years! And if u saw the recipe card you would believe it! i prefer this frosting over the cream cheese frosting which some people use instead.

    I agree with CB on the CI recipe, made it also and it was not very exciting. Like it more goopy too! But Patrick sure makes his look awesome.

    Meyer Lemons: Recipes and Storage

    Thanks guys for all the great ideas. The lemon creme anglaise sounds good, and the vinaigrette, and the ......, they all sound great. but i decided a simple glass of lemonade so i can experience my first taste of meyer lemon to its fullest! now i have to work on getting my persian lime to produce past the flowering stage. I also have a kaffir lime that i would like to do something with. Can u use the leaves in pastry or confections , or are they too powerful! anybody tried this? If so, let me know. Sarah

    Meyer Lemons: Recipes and Storage

    After having my dwarf meyer lemon for 2 years, I finally harvested its first fruit!I feel like a proud new mother! Now, what do i do with one lonely meyer lemon? open to ideas The skin since i picked it 2 days ago has become unbelievably smooth and shiny, why is this? And why does it not happen with regular lemons? Hey, how do u make the photos larger?
  17. Wendy, i understand your dilemma! i also work at a private country club and encounter many of the same problems as you. Some weeks dessert sales are great and other weeks nothing. i also tried the low carb option and it didn't seem to go over. It seems that if people are going to order dessert they are going to splurge on something that is fattening and tasty, which makes sense to me. I too have thought about a sampler dessert . This way they find out how delicious all the different desserts are and want to order the large version!? You can call it the "Dessert Teaser"! just tiny portions! Minute!!! Yeah, and than they want more. Whaddya think? Sarah O
