Video - How To Make Chocolate Ganache!

I recently posted a recipe of a desert that I created to take to my work ST Patrick's Day potluck.  The minty rich chocolate cakes were a big hit, and many enjoyed the chocolate and mint combination. The bite sized cakes tasted just like a Thin Mint cookie, ala of Girl Scout notoriety!

When I mentioned, to a few curious inquires of how I constructed the edibles. I explained  how it was just a box cake mix and some ganache for the topping, they were a bit puzzled and wanted to know exactly what ganache was made of.

I did my best to explain,, cream and chocolate, but they wanted to know the process. So a video was great idea.  Lucky for me when I created the recipe I just happened to also record a video of the ganache process.

So here is the video of the process, now after watching go and make your own, its delicious and versatile!  I dare you to keep it in your fridge for longer than a week, my guess is it won't last more than a night! Hehe!



Hope you enjoyed this post and thanks for stopping by!

2am Chili - How To Make Chili "Like A Boss"

Over on the reddit user tylercap posted his recipe for Chili, "Like A Boss" that he likes to make at 2am between sessions of Black Ops.  However unlike the traditional listing of ingredients in a 3x5 index card format or video of the process tylercap decided to post pics along with some stick figures showing the process.  Also if you're unfamiliar with the meme "Like a Boss" check out the bottom of the post for the youtube clip from Andy Samberg of SNL and thelonlyisland.

nsfw language and imagery for both chili and "like a boss" video after the jump.

POPUP SHOP - Modo Mochi Donut @ Mitsuwa Marketplace in San Jose

$20 for a dozen!!! (other food, and tax/tip not included)
People have lost their damn minds once again in the "craze" of these Hawaiian Mochi Donuts!  We arrived after lunch at the Mitsuwa Marketplace in San Jose off Saratoga Ave.  The line was out the door! My friends got in line, I went in to scope out how long it would be.   I passed the automatic doors and saw the line twisted to and fro, back and forth, amongst various food stands and displays.  I inquired the length of time people were waiting, 2-3 hrs was the wait time.  
OMG! No frick'n way!!!  
No pastry was worth that wait!Luckily, my friend came in to see the line size and saw their sister in law and was able to snag a few to share with us! Thanks CHAN!  The max you could get for one person was a dozen for $20.   
Now don't get me wrong, the donuts were very tasty and had that slight chewiness of fresh pastries combined with mochi, but they weren't mind blowing crazy good.  The best donut was the one l…
