When I saw the March picks for the Tuesdays with Dorie crowd I was amazed to see that I have already baked 4 out of the 5 recipes! I'm definitely closing in on baking everything in the book!
The March recipe that I had not yet made was this week's choice by Christine of Black Cat Cooking, Chocolate Pots de Creme. As it happens, we are still in the midst of our once-a-week soup nights with about 20 guests each Monday night. It has been a great excuse to bake, but 8 little ramekins of luscious chocolate just didn't seem enough. I made them anyway--first 7 guests will get them (I'm having mine right now!).

The Pots de Creme were easy and fun to make. I love shaving chocolate from a big hunk of Callebaut Bitter Sweet, whisking eggs is also fun, and I'm still amazed at even the thought of boiling cream.
But in addition to the tasty Pots de Creme, I also made Dorie's Peanut Butter Torte and her Sugar cookies. Wonderful!
