Wizards to Mysteries?

I love Emma Watson’s new hairstyle. I know she did it a while ago, but i just read that apparently she did it for a screen test to play Lisbeth Salander in the new remake of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”. That would make me happy, because I just finished reading this. I liked it…murder, mystery, etc….I’m now reading the second one (The Girl Who Played with Fire.) Anyway, I haven’t seen the first make of the movie yet, but I was planning on renting it soon. I’ll let you know how it is! But I love her hair, and I thought I would post some pictures. The last 3 are from her shoot for Allure right after she cut it. I think she’s adorable.

Cheese Puffs….MMMM

Chef Ludo Lefebvre’s French-Style Cheese Puffs
Makes three dozen
Ingredients
1 c. plus 1 tbsp. water
7 tbsp. butter
1¼ c. flour
4 large eggs
1¾ c. grated Gruyere
Pinch of salt
1. Preheat oven to 375°.
2. Prepare a baking tray with parchment paper.
3. Pour water into a large saucepan; add butter and salt. Turn up the heat. Once the butter has melted, turn down the heat and add the flour all at once, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Remove from the heat when the flour is amalgamated and the paste is smooth (about 5 minutes).
4. Continue to stir 3-5 minutes or until the paste is just warm (this process dries the dough). Do not overheat.
5. Put the dough ball in your KitchenAid mixer (if you’re lucky) or just roll up your sleeves to mix by hand. Add eggs one at the time, mixing on low until well incorporated before adding the next. After the last egg has been mixed in, add the cheese, and mix for about 30 seconds (the cheese will melt slightly).
6. Transfer the dough to a pastry bag and squeeze out small, round mounds onto the baking tray. (No pastry bag? A spoon will do.)
7. Bake 20-25 minutes (depending on their size) until they rise and are golden brown.
8. To impress your friends, serve them warm right out of the oven.
