What I'm Baking to Zest up my Life!

by Jillian Leslie on


I was asked by Kraft to write a post about how I might try something new to "spice up" my life.

What immediately came to mind were all the things I'm afraid to make in the kitchen. In my fantasy, I am a fearless chef who can tackle anything. In reality, I tend to stick to what's safe (sound familiar, per chance?).

So for this post, I decided to take the bull by the horns and attempt two desserts that have intimidated me for years... chocolate soufflé and tarte tatin.

I got so excited to try them, I actually made the chocolate souffle over the weekend (see photo above). And it wasn't anywhere near as hard as I thought... I LOVED HOW IT TURNED OUT. It was so rich and creamy and light and fluffy. And the best party is I felt so proud of myself! I will be posting the recipe later in the week.

This weekend I'm going to attempt a tarte tatin. I think they're so beautiful, and I hope mine look something like the ones I drool over on Pinterest.

And for the third dessert I want to try, I was hoping to get suggestions from you of a dessert you're a little intimidated to make, but think I should attempt. If you have a dessert like this, please leave it as a comment in this post or email me at jillian(at) catchmyparty.com. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Here's another picture of my souffles because I still can't believe I did it!
