My KitchenAid is never not out. And absolutely worth washing the paddle attachment to save myself that much arm fatigue.

Re: Things That Go in Your Mouth

Making puffs again, this time omitting the sugar and going to try to make a paste of smoked salmon, creme fraiche, capers and dill to fill them with. I got some pro tips from Serious Eats-- heat the dough on the stove to 165-175F, let cool to 145F before adding the eggs, use the stand mixer with the...

Mharr, I baked them on a silpat with 1.5" circles pre-printed. I moved them to the aluminum tray for transport. They fell right off the silpat.

Re: Things That Go in Your Mouth

It was an eggs problem with the cream, I'll try the strainer. The choux was quite cool, I just don't quite understand how I was supposed to incorporate eggs into a firm ball of dough.

*I'm using the Ladureé _Sucré_ cookbook and assuming the recipes for French pastry are legit af.

Re: Things That Go in Your Mouth

Choux and pastry cream both look a little lumpy, but the cream at least tastes good. Will attempt baking in the morning.

Re: Things That Go in Your Mouth

Nope! Never done any sort of choux. I've read the recipe a lot of times though. If it's a Food Failure it's no great loss though.

Re: Things That Go in Your Mouth

I'm going to try making cream puffs! Hoping to prep the choux pastry batter and the pastry cream today, and pipe, bake, and assemble tomorrow. I've never done these before so fingers crossed.
It's ambitious but I did talk myself down from making Paris-Brest instead.

Re: "Coronavirus" is the category, dangit. (COVID-19 thread)

I'm planning on wearing masks around strangers for a long time yet. Not sure what that means for work yet, terrified actually about what it means in late August when tens of thousands of people from across the world converge on my town. Hoping I'm allowed to keep my office door shut and window open ...

Re: Shittier Days

I hope you can figure something out, Thad. I had a migraine last for a month solid once, it was awful. (Got an MRI and a CAT and eventually went to ER. Nobody ever found a cause.) I'm starting to think everything's too complicated for doctors to find causes.

Re: WEATHER II: Hell on Earth

Snowing all day, end of April. Supposed to go all night too. The trees and bushes are covered and it's starting to stick to the grass. Forecasted to get 1 inch of snow. Supposed to be in the 60s on Friday.

Re: Things That Go in Your Mouth

I use chard same as kale. I like it best lightly sauteed in olive oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper, as a side dish or chopped and on pasta. (Pull out the leaf-bones first.)

Re: Honk Honk

I helped buy a pickup truck for an ex-bf once that was only like $400, I think that was a fluke of a nice older man basically giving a drivable vehicle away to some young'uns. Never gotten a car for myself for under $8k. I get anxious about dealing with person to person sales so my last car just cam...

Re: Regular-Forum Fervor! Let's Play the Sims 4!

I am very upset at those caterers and bartenders and their lack of catering and tending. Also, I too wish to have that much kitchen counter space.
Also who bakes a cake in the middle of a party?? Always get that done before, geez.

I enjoyed the Undertale characters. Maybe FF4 characters?

Re: HOW WAS YOUR DAY

Still having a hard time, but past the point now of "can literally do nothing but cry." I've gotten back mobility in everything but my neck and parts of my shoulders, and I managed to get out of bed by myself the past two mornings. It's a considerable improvement. But my SI started going o...
