I baked 5 half sheet genoise layers (1 inch high). Four are for the base cake and the other one will be cut in four, filled and stacked and carved into a heart shape to go on top. The filling, which I will do tomorrow, is a dark chocolate mousse, made with chocolate ganache (chocolate and heated whipping cream) and whipped cream. Unfortunately all the tickets for the celebration it is going to have been sold.

I have fussed with this product a lot in the past. I have a dedicated ceramic/stone cookie sheet that I use for vegetables. I have 2 appliances that slice veggies and I use the one that slices them thicker. Toss with olive oil and salt. Bake at 450*F and bake at least 15 minutes. They will be soft cooked but then burn rather quickly. So I keep checking them and remove the outer chips as they crisp and keep baking until the center ones are done. I sprinkled some of them with a Penzeys salsa salad seasoning and gave them quite a kick. I also select long thin potatoes that are a perfect chip size.

oh my on the cake you are baking for the anniversary

also looking for that nutella cake recipe too!!!

Last week made Korova Chocolate Cookies for the first time. Making them again today. They've now replaced chocolate chip cookies as my favorite cookies!

Do you have a recipe we could see Chopstix? (and how are you? Haven't seen you in a bit.)

I have a bunch of egg yolks left from yesterday's cake spree so I am going to try to fit in some lemon tarts today to take for the luncheon on Sunday. I also need to take "sandwiches" to it and have decided on ham and cheese muffins as an alternative. I have a lot of ham and cheese to use up!
