|Make these. Now.|
Conclusion: I would sell a finger for these cheese puffs. LOVE.
Dessert will be Top-Secret Chocolate Mousse (pg 421). Since it can sit in the fridge all day, I got it out of the way this morning. My only response to this dessert is: that's how you make mousse??? It's harder to flip an omelet. It doesn't even need to cook!! Did you know that? I didn't. It's the easiest thing in the world: Melt chocolate. Mix in egg yolks. Beat egg whites, salt, and a touch of sugar into peaks. Fold into the chocolate. DONE.
|Who needs lunch when there's mousse in the fridge?|
Conclusion: Love. I can't get over how easy this was. The more I cook, the more accessible the world becomes. My new life strategy is that if I can't get it, I should make it--bagels, bread, etc. Usually recipes aren't as hard as I expect, and the result is better than most restaurants. It's very empowering. I love it.
I may not have time to post about the soup or the souffle until tomorrow, since I'm not going to rudely blog away my last evening with Hilary (they're still napping, so it's okay for now), so I figured I'd break the day up into two posts. Stay tuned...
