Sorry, Alix, I got mixed up - I think it was Kades needing help with pastry but she got it. I was lousy at pastry until I went to school.
I have even tried your recipe for pot roast....twice and it didn't work. The meat I have used has been fatty and I do ignore it. Well, will just have to keep trying!
The main point of choux is that you have to add your eggs in after it has cooled a bit AND you need a lot of arm power to stir it until the right consistency. I will send you my recipe and method.
