We also made Pecan Pralines and since one of our girls on the team is from Louisiana we decided to use her recipe not the books because Chef said the books really wasn't all that grand. And I also found some Peach & Blueberry Cobbler in the class fridge so I made Country Biscuits from scratch, they were SOOOO GOOD! I love that we are allowed to cook whatever we want sometimes! I love school and my team and my Chefs and my classes! So I know this was a lot of information for one blog but we are now officially all up to date on recipes! If you have any to share with me please go ahead and let me know I love trying new things, whether it's food or dessert! And the last picture is of my car remember how I said it got post-it note attacked, well it wasn't a full on attack or anything but it sure got hit.

Have a wonderful day everyone! I'm going to finish some homework, just THREE journals left! I'm almost caught up! Then it's movie/game night with some friends.
Bon Appetit!
