  1. I doubled this recipe and the result was runny but the taste was delicious. I only opened to stir once or twice; perhaps it needed more 'peeking' to let out more steam. There's also no clarity to cooking on low, med or high, so I went med. It stuck to the sides somewhat, didn't burn, and as I said, was deliciously creamy and fully cooked. I'd make it again, perhaps go for low cook temp the whole time and peek/lift the lid a little more to let some steam escape. Once cooled, (after dinner) it was thick as normal. Didn't need the addtl milk or cream. I'll def experiment again--- w/ homemade chic stock or the milk/cream version. Great option I never thought of. It freed me from the up the pouring and stirring last minute, so I could enjoy my guests. Thx

I am a stay at home mom to three young boys. I used to work as a pediatric speech language pathologist and that is when my husband coined my "name" but after the second baby I came home to stay- at least until they all get to school. I enjoy trying new dishes and am slowly trying to expand my family's (and my own) comfort zone for new foods. Thanks for allowing me that opportunity! <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg">
