Head to Head

Let's get our sweet tooth on w/ a Just Desserts recap, shall we?

Hurray hurray, relay race time! Yes yes, for the Quickfire Challenge, the cheftestants were broken into 2 teams of 3. Thankfully team Snot Bag (Zac, Gidget & Heather) were on one side and Team Slightly More Tolerable (Morgan, Danielle & Eric) on the other. Task #1: make tart crusts - Danielle whips past Gidget. Huh, who knew? Task #2: make 10 butter cream roses - Eric blows SMT's lead to Heather. Task #3: beat some eggs into a meringue and hold the bowl over yr head for 10 seconds - Morgan pulls SMT back to the lead. Task #4: stretch a strudel dough across the length of their work table. Here's an interesting tip: strudel dough doesn't stretch so nice. And unfortunately, Snot Bag won.

For the Elimination Challenge, the two teams went head to head w/ competing bakeries & had to include one bread item. And even though they had a corny name, SMT's bakery "Whisk me Away" won w/ their comfort baked goods. I'll tell ya, I'd stab someone in the eye to get a good chocolate chip cookie. And packing it up was Heather and her crappy dough.

Ding dong the witch is dead!

I've kind of given up on the show and just been following it with your recaps. I can't get into it. I still tape them every week. But when push comes to shove, the just gets skipped and eventually deleted. Maybe I'll come back to it for the finals...
