Cooking adventures with French Fridays with Dorie and My World, My Kitchen
Time spent in the garden and kitchen is not time wasted; the essence of quality is attained through toil, not technology.

Ok, so it's pretty clear these are not beautiful (largely due to the fact that I am an inexperienced ninny with a piping bag); but they were darn sure yummy! I did the coffee version and seemed to have some of the similar problems a lot of you had- the eclairs deflated and, on top of that- my pastry cream became too thin when I added the suggested coffee flavorings! Even after an overnight in the frig. So I need to figure that one out- suggestions most certainly welcomed.....
Also, I did a simplified version of the short ribs in port in my precious little Moroccan tagine, newly purchased. What a scrumptious dish; my dinner guests & DH loved it! I modified using a recipe provided with the tagine. Cheers to all my FFWD friends!
