  1. Not a straight caramel sauce, but I have done Alton Brown's Dulce de Leche recipe numerous times with great success. https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/dulce-de-leche-recipe-1948282 For added lusciousness, I would add in some chocolate at the end to melt in.
  2. The Peanut Butter mousse from the following video would likely make a great filling Peanut Butter Icebox Cake Higher on the sugar content, 1 C of brown sugar 2C whole milk. 1/4 C cornstarch, 4 egg yolks, 1.5 C peanut butter, 4T butter, 1tsp vanilla, pinch of salt 2/3 C heavy cream whipped to medium peaks

  7. I don't post much, but I frequent these forums on a daily basis. I joined back in my mid 20's, and all the regular egulleteers are perpetually in their mid-20's in my head, even though I have aged and had to deal with similar issues with my grandparents, and now my parents generation.

  15. Had a wonderful dinner last night at Twisted Filipino Popup. Chef LaMagna aims to introduce more diners to the cuisine of the Philippines. Link This was my first time at a popup, so not sure what to expect. The dinner was coordinated by Feastly which made the process easy. It was an enjoyable evening, with communal tables and lot of entertaining chit chat. The highlight of the evening for me was the sticky rice with bone marrow, it was luscious, bright and bitter in the right places.
