Pâte à Choux is the French term referring to the easy-to-make dough you use to make cream puffs and eclairs. While you may prefer your pastry filled with whipped cream, I enjoy mine filled with pastry cream (see photo). Use either or both combined or any of the other variations suggested. Meanwhile, streusel and cream …

If you’ve always enjoyed Chicken Marsala or Veal Marsala in restaurants and have tried to make your own but just couldn’t duplicate the flavor, there are usually two reasons.

I recently purchased a pint of Talenti Sea Salt Caramel Gelato. However, it turned out to NOT be gluten free. It is one of the few flavors that may contain wheat. I was so sad because it is truly an amazing flavor! They made it even better by adding a few miniature chocolate-covered caramel truffles. Oh my goodness! My husband and I fell in love with it!

You can stuff the chicken with mozzarella and peppers as I did or anything you enjoy from sautéed vegetables to cheese with or without ham, prosciutto, or bacon. I didn’t use any meat in the stuffing and my husband went wild over this dish!
