I went to culinary school, I’ve worked in restaurants and bakeries, and I’ve been testing and developing recipes for six years in the <em>EatingWell</em> Test Kitchen—and <em>still</em> I struggle with a few things. For me, they mostly involve desserts, because a dessert is often less forgiving if you make a mistake. There’s no magic fix if your chocolate mousse deflates or you overbake a meringue.</p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/a_test_kitchen_cooks_tricks_to_master_5_of_the_most_challenging_desserts#comments Food Blog Cooking tips Dessert Hilary Meyer Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Wed, 15 Jan 2014 17:30:43 +0000 Nifer 281092 at http://www.eatingwell.com Staff Favorites from the New January Issue of EatingWell http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/staff_favorites_from_the_new_january_issue_of_eatingwell <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/staff_favorites_from_the_new_january_issue_of_eatingwell" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/SD8670_Westphalen.JPG" alt="Staff Favorites from the New January Issue of EatingWell Blog Post" title="Staff Favorites from the New January Issue of EatingWell Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p>When you look the new January/February issue of EatingWell magazine, there are a couple things you’ll notice right away.

Call me Southern (which is a compliment!) but I think bringing a little offering says, “Thank you so much for inviting me over and serving me food.” I used to bring a bottle or wine or flowers, but recently I’ve been whipping up homemade treats. This holiday season I’m making <em>EatingWell’s</em> new homemade chocolate bark recipes. Why? Because bark is a lot healthier and easier to make than chocolate fudge.</p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/which_is_healthier_chocolate_fudge_or_chocolate_bark#comments Healthy Cooking Blog Breana Lai Cooking tips Dessert Holidays Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Mon, 09 Dec 2013 19:21:49 +0000 Nifer 279945 at http://www.eatingwell.com Best Cranberry Cheesecake Ever http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/best_cranberry_cheesecake_ever <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/best_cranberry_cheesecake_ever" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/DS8590A_Scrivani_1.jpg" alt="Best Cranberry Cheesecake Ever Blog Post" title="Best Cranberry Cheesecake Ever Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p>The <a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/food_news_origins/eatingwell_magazine/current_issue/novdec_2013_table_of_contents" target="new">December issue of EatingWell</a> features some truly spectacular recipes for cranberries—and this Cranberry-Lime Cheesecake is the jewel of the collection.
