Impressive. I just tried making a caramel pastry cream to serve as a pudding after dinner tonight, but the caramel flavor just isn't there. It's a good dessert, but the flavor is no where near where I wanted it. I will have to get some more milk and exparament with a higher ratio of sugar to milk and less starch. When I get the right flavor, I'm going to make cream puffs with it.

Wow :0)  Chip, that looks great.  I'm inspired.  Maybe I'll try it myself.  My favorite go to...some type of fruit galette, always makes for a simple yet impressive autumn dessert.  Well, actually any time of year.  I switch it up with seasonal fruit.

Trying out Julia Child's recipe for apple charlotte today - sounded like a good autumn dessert to make. I'll post a picture if it turns out.

Taking yet another crack at getting a sourdough starter going after losing interest a couple of years ago.  I cheated this time and ordered one from King Arthur Flour.  We'll see.

Self-Defense Without Guns

This situation is going to take some detailing, so please bear with me.I live in Taiwan, where civilians cannot own firearms.  Crime here is almost zero, violent crime is basically zero.  Its one of the safest places to be.  There's also security cameras everywhere in the cities.  However, the little violent crime that there is ... is of a pretty frightening character.The problem is corruption.  While random crime like home invasion, convenience store robbery, drug crime, road rage etc. is…See More
