I am a lucky lady.....I have access to a real, full sized, full service kitchen for a week!!!  Cannot tell you how excited I am!!

Have cookbook...will travel!

Doesn't that look like an interesting combination?  Let's see we have dijon mustard, soy sauce, maple syrup, salt, and pepper.....
Sounds like a  sauce to put over the brussel sprouts, red peppers and onions.    AND I forgot to get a finished picture.....HOW short sighted (or do I mean "memory challenged") is that?  It was pretty tasty but I wouldn't make it again anytime soon.

Let's move on to dessert, at least I have a finished picture of that.

I watch a lot of Food Network shows, and one day I saw Tyler Florence making this dessert.

Quite frankly, this doesn't look that appetizing..but it is a batter in one cup ramekins.  They are sitting in a water bath, ready to be placed in the oven.

After  being baked, the cakes are inverted on a plate AND

dusted with powdered sugar.  It was very lemoney and a little on the tart side.  The berries were a good mix although a person could have just gone with one kind.    This dessert is called "lemon pudding cake with fresh berries" and it truly had the consistence of pudding or custard.

Will definately make this one again.  Gotta love a real kitchen!
