    1. Thanks! And I think Choux is such a cheat – it always seems intimidating until you try it and then a whole world opens up. As I posted this little menu I realize I need to make a lot more things with Choux. 🙂 Eclairs, for one!!

          1. I agree. I’d have to make it worth my while though by frying a bunch of other things at the same time to get the most out of the oil but the possibilities … samosas, kibbeh, gulab jamun, corn dogs, fish tacos. Don’t know which to choose.

Hearing from you makes my day! Comment below.
