can't talk, eating…

Okay…let me give you a little tip: Do not make profiteroles before dinner, or else you’re going to eat profiteroles for dinner. Wiser words were never spoken. Now let’s revise the original tip to include brownies (yes…I went crazy and made brownies too). And, let’s add an addendum: Do not post a blog on Friday telling everyone that you’re planning to make Ina Garten’s Sole Muniere unless you first check to see if your 13-year-old son is planning a Super Bowl party (unbeknownst to me until 4 hours prior) and wants to serve chili dogs and chips on the same day that you’re making said sole. Needless to say, I’m wearing some very stretchy yoga pants, and I have four lovely sole filets cooling their jets in the fridge!

I’m happy to report that once again, Ina has come through with flying colors! The Barefoot Contessa‘s profiteroles with softened vanilla ice cream and warm velvety chocolate sauce were a big hit with everyone and they were a cinch to make. I’m definitely going to make them again, but next time, I’ll invite a whole bunch of friends over to partake in the glutonous bliss. I usually like to come up with a stand-by dessert every summer, and this could be a contender.

Although I included a fork in the picture, it’s just for looks–the only way to eat these little gems is by shoving them into your mouth with your fingers! Looking at this photo is driving me crazy (…just can’t figure out why I’m not losing weight). You gotta know there’s gonna be an epic tug-o-war between the devil on my left shoulder and the angel on my right shoulder. Hmmmm….who will win? Duh.

    • Hi Janis…You should definitely make them. They’re really easy and oh so good! It took me about 15 minutes to make them, and about 5 hours to try and get one almost decent picture!!! Ugh. Are you sure you can’t just come and live with us with camera ready at all times?

  1. Those look delicious, if I hadn’t seen you cooking with my own two eyes, I would have called you a cooking cheat (takes one to know one). Got any left overs???
