How to Top a Torte?

What were the proportions of your ganache? Because a thinner "pouring" ganache might give the result you are looking for with a glaze; with an intense flavor.

Anyone know of a good recipe for Rice, Tapioca or Bread pudding?

Make arroz con leche (latin rice pudding; most recipes contain no eggs. ) Personally, I don't really use a recipe but, there are a lot of good ones out there. Just, I prefer the medium grain rice. I feel like like it gives a nicer texture to the pudding. If you want to wing it I think about a cup of rice and 1/2 a cup sugar or to taste 1 tsp of vanilla 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. 1/4-/2 cup cream, amd enough milk to make pudding probably around 6 cups. Boil milk with cinnamon and sugar add rice. Drop the heat to medium stir regularly tilll thick and creamy. Taste the rice, If not done enough add more milk. When nice and thick add heavy cream and vanilla. Serve warm or cool for a couple hours. Not exactly traditional but tastes like the cuban restaurant I use to go to so I love it.

Leftover Mashed Potato Pancakes

SAlt and pepper too of course.

Leftover Mashed Potato Pancakes

My family's was a little different. First Fry up bacon. Depending on how much mashed potatoes add about 1/4 of four along with two eggs and about 5 scallions chopped. Stir to combine Crumble some bacon if you like. If not just form into patties and fry in bacon fat.

Does Thanksgiving = Christmas on your table?

Ours is different; Thanksgiving is turkey, Christmas Eve is fish, and Christmas Day is Prime Rib .

When do you make Thanksgiving pies?

My husband is working Thanksgiving and with a new baby, a 2 and 4 year old I am certain logically I should make my four pies tomorrow night. But the illogical part of me still wants them made on Thanksgiving. So I am wondering when everyone else makes their pies for Thursday ?

Cooking Lobster

Tonight my parents are buying lobster for my birthday present. We don't have lobster often, I thinks this is first time in four years. Please give me some ideas on what to do with them and how to cook them. I know many of you have much more lobster experience than I have. Thanks for the help.

What to make for dessert on Christmas?

I need help on this. What should I make for dessert on Chistmas? We are having a rib roast with mashed potatoes, gravy, yorkshire pudding, roasted asparagus and one other green veg. But, dessert is a problem, so any suggestions are welcome. I'm open to any and all suggestions; no dessert is too rich or too light. Thanks!

Best way to make fudge?

This year is the first that I have decided to make fudge. I have checked out lots of recipes and some call for heavy cream, some call for sweetened condensed milk or even evaporated milk. Then there is the marshmallow issue; whole marshmallows, fluff, or none at all. So how do you make your fudge? And if you are feeling generous I would love recipes. Thanks so much.

Favorite Christmas Party Foods

So what is everybody bringing with them to the holday parties? I've got three Christmas parties over and above the family stuff and I feel its to early to go into cookies ( Mostly because I want some to last until Christmas). Do you just do the sweet treats or is there something amazing you make that you are known for?

Help!!! The bird is coming!

I need help figuring out how to cook the turkey. I keep going back and forth between a bunch of methods I haven't tried before. I need suggestions. So far, I have smoked in smoker(usually do it in a grill), barned turkey a la America's Test kitchen, spatchcocked, or traditional. I did buy a kosher turkey so I didn't have to brine but even that is up to debate. I have made Thanksgiving dinner for 7 years. So i've got the timing, the sides, and even oven placement (Thanks GatorPam) but I just want a good turkey.. Please help me overcome the bird.

Cocoa Powder

I have a lot of cocoa powder. One 28 oz Ghiradelli Unsweetened Cocoa and one 8 oz Hershey's. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!! I have made chocolate pudding 6 times in the last month. I think I am ODing. I need some new ideas. For the sake of all that is chocolaty please help me.

Fear and loathing in the groceries

The other day I had my husband pick up some groceries. When, I was putting them away, to my utter shock and horror, I found... A can of Easy Cheese. I went through the seven stages of grief and now I think I am in acceptance. But, even so, make me feel better. What things do your friends or significant others eat that upset your heart; or your stomach?

First Look: Lebanese-Armenian at Almayass in the Flatiron

Lebanese restaurants aren't rare in this city, but they aren't especially common either—a shame for New Yorkers who'd rather pig out on eggplant and yogurt than foie gras and pork belly. Lebanese cuisine is Southern Mediterranean meets Middle Eastern, and can be as conservative or as exotic as you care for. At the newly opened, surprisingly fancy Almayass in the Flatiron, both routes are open to you. Want to stick to pita, hummus, and kebabs? No problem. Curious about quail egg-topped Lebanese salumi, beet root dips, or bulgur-studded tartar? They can make that happen. More
