This cookbook is the B-O-M-B! I've made several things from it - everything is great. The best so far has been the homemade NUTELLA. Made several batches and gave them away at Christmas time. It was so easy to make. Will never buy the other stuff again. Looking forward to her next segment in two weeks.

How about home-made chocolate sauce? Baking powder in a pan with some milk and melted butter (or heavy cream), a little sugar and vanilla, some nuts. Takes 3 min and so much better - and cheaper - than ice cream toppings available in the store.

I'm standing over the stove just now cooking stuff listening to Julia, noticed two little jars on the spice rack in front of me of yellow and brown mustard seeds, who knows where they came from or how long they've been there without my having a clue what to do with them. So I just dumped them all into a bowl, poured half a bottle of dark beer over them and a healthy splash of cider vinegar. THANKS! This should be interesting!
