Pate a Choux Dough – Eclairs

Like so many, I have become absolutely obsessed with The Great British Bake Off.  My husband and I began binge watching it over the Christmas holiday and have now completed five seasons.  We are completely hooked and it has awoken in me a deep desire to bake every possible French pastry or classic British dessert.  A quick text was sent to Carmi and the questions were posed, first, “are you watching British Bakeoff?” second, “What do you think about trying out a few of these classic recipes and show how easy they are with the right tools (Ankarsrum Mixer)?” Lucky for everyone Carmi was completely on board so be on the lookout this year for some classic desserts.

With that said, our first offering is one I was excitedly nervous to try. Pate a Choux (pronounced Shoo) is the pastry dough used for several different creations. Cream Puffs, Profiteroles and today’s recipe, Eclairs.  I really struggled in deciding if this needed to be a recipe that went live before Valentine’s or should we stay on our predetermined timeline.  Clearly I chose to stay on our regular schedule and that was because I was excited to let you know our plans for the year. With that said, lets dive right in!

Pull Apart Herb Rolls with S.A.L.T. Sisters

 

As October comes to an end, thoughts turn to November which automatically makes me think of all that I am thankful for.  I am beginning to plan the items I will make for our family’s Thanksgiving feast and of course I’ve already begun my Christmas shopping.  As I think on these upcoming events, I am reminded of how blessed I am.  How I have so many loving people in my life.  I am reminded how important it is to reach out and show love to someone in need.  Maybe its a coworker, the next door neighbor, or your child’s teacher or coach.  Maybe you’ve wanted to reach out but didn’t know how.  My thought is that food is a wonderful key to open the door to a persons heart and that is why we have a special recipe for you along with a special announcement.

Overnight Oatmeal Chia Bowls

 

It’s August here in Georgia and for my kids that means back to school.  That also means early mornings of making breakfast and packing lunches. I’m always looking for quick and easy meals not only for them but for myself as well.  I also love make ahead dishes that are just as good on day five as they were the day I made them.  This is one of those recipes.  I also love it because it allows for each person in your home to add their favorite toppings so that you never have to hear, “but I don’t like that!”.  Cause who really wants to start the morning hearing those words?  This recipe is also a great way to start your morning with whole grains, fiber and even a good source of protein.  I actually used a nutrition app to plug in these ingredients and will share those nutrition facts at the bottom of the recipe.
