Re:Stir-Fried Cauliflower with Green Peas & Ginger

This is tasty, easy, healthy, and only takes one pan to make. What more could you ask for? I've made it numerous times and it's a consistent winner.

Re:Simple Chocolate Truffles

OK. I made 3 different types of truffles using this recipe, the recipe for Basic Ganache, and the suggestions at the bottom. I don't want to get into all the details, but I thought the basic ganache was difficult to work with if you didn't use an addition. The tastiest variation by far, and the easiest to work with as well, was the PB and J truffle. The jam made the ganache softer and easier to form and the butterfinger (I used crushed butterfinger instead of peanuts) made the coating inconsistencies very forgiving. They looked yummy and tasted fantastic. Recommendations, whether a liquor or jam, add something to the ganache and coat with nuts or crushed candy, not cocoa. I'd never made any truffles before, these are a beginners recommendations.

Re:Fudgy Brownies

These were just what I was looking for! I hate cakey brownies (just eat cake) and these turned out dense and chocolaty. I used 60% cocoa chocolate for the bittersweet and I'll probably use something a little sweeter next time (Hershey's special dark?). These brownies were so deeply chocolate, it was like living inside a cacao bean, but many people like their brownies a bit sweeter. Still, exactly as advertised fudgy!OH, I doubled the recipe in a 9x13 Pyrex and these cooked done in 30 minutes. They were just perfect and would have been overdone if I'd cooked for 35 let alone 45!
