Friday Friend Recipe #146 & 147 -- Cream Puff Appetizers

This is recipe #147 out of #294!
I'm halfway there!!
Woo Hoo!!

Come with me as I continue to countdown my Friday Friend Cookbook!

What is it, you may ask?

In a nutshell...
About 17 years ago, 50 of my closest friends and family, who had been on an e-mail forum with me, sent in recipes in different categories and we compiled a cookbook.
I decided to count those down!

Because  one night I was looking thru the cookbook and I said, "I should make every recipe in here for my blog"
The Handyman--who thinks he knows me better than I know myself, said,  "you'll never EVER do that."
Well,  maybe I will!  Maybe I'll show him!

Which brings me to recipes #146 and #147
 My mom, Bev, and Barb's  cream puff appetizers!

onion                       nacho cheese                    shrimp                salmon

For this competition---Barb was clearly the overall winner!
Not that my mother's were bad---it's just that my taste buds preferred the taste of Barb's cream puff fillings.
To be fair tho, I only chose 2 flavors from each of those they submitted.  I didn't do the pudding filling that my mom turned in--obviously the winner in any situation--nor did I do my mom's shrimp filling, because Barb had one also. So maybe this wasn't a competition at all?

It was kind of fun to do a taste test.  I made them and took them to one of my favorite, beautiful Daughter-in-law's house, for her birthday dinner. 

I should have gotten a photo of us eating the cream puffs--but I did make them taste them all--and then we voted.  Again, the onion filling and the shrimp filling won the taste test.

Half way!

I'm on the downhill side now!



I spent yesterday afternoon,  counting how many recipes from each person I have left to post and Barb has about 50 left and my mom about 30, so I figure I can take a story break for this post.
But really......these photos?  I have no words at all anyway.
No. Words.  At. All.
(but I do have the outfits my parents have on.)

I give mom and dad and Barb and Doug-- Proud Americans.

Yeseriee  I inherited those wonderful USA outfits of my parents.
Someday I might break them out and put them on.
Someday I might not.

Recipes #146 and #147 completed
147 left to go!!

Your DIL is gorgeous. How neat! When I think of cream puffs, I think of sweet desserts, not savory. That is a great twist on a cream puff.
