I prefer desserts which are not too sweet as asians (Especially Malaysians, where i'm from) have high number of diabetics. The amount of sugar that we use here it's unbelievable. I have been having trouble doing it myself as I love to experiment, I can do other dishes without referring to recipes, but not baking or making pastries.

Baking is chemistry and pastry is very technique heavy. Neither one are good to experiment with when you are just learning, it is crucial to follow a recipe and measure accurately.

Bakechef, what an excellent way to describe baking! I wasn't so good in Chem class, maybe that's why I rarely bake!

How do you steal a recipe? And if you do steal it, does that mean the person you stole it from can no longer cook it? These are questions that inquiring people want the answers to!

I once took a box on Duncan Hines Chocolate Lovers Brownie Mix. Mixed according to directions, then unwrapped many, many mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Lined them up on top of the mix in the pan so that the whole top was covered with them, then pushed them down into the batter. Came out fantastic. A great hit. Everybody got a cup or more of the Reese's along with the brownie. So who should I give credit to? Duncan Hines or Reese's?

Would that be petty larceny or grand theft?
