A Special Occasion Calls For A Cream Puff 
Cream Puffs Recipe
Yield: 10-12 cream puffs

Ingredients
3/4 cup/185ml water
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3 ounces/85g unsalted butter
3/4 cup/94g unbleached all-purpose flour
3 extra-large eggs, at room temperature (plus one egg for glazing, whisked)
Whipped cream or ice cream for filling
Cocoa powder for finishing
Optional sauce or topping
Optional garnish (berries, mint leaves, etc.)
Directions
Preheat the oven to 400F/204C/Gas 6

Line the bottom of two 12 x 18 inch/j30 x 46 cm sheet pans with parchment paper.
Put the water, salt and butter in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Add the flour gradually, stirring continuously until a ball forms and comes away from the sides of the saucepan. Remove from heat.
Put the flour mixture in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. NOTE: Do not use the whisk attachment; you do not want to incorporate air. Beat on medium speed for 1 minute to allow the steam to evaporate from the mixture.
Reduce the speed to low. Add the eggs one at a time until fully incorporated. The mixture should appear smooth and shiny.
Using a lightly oiled tablespoon to scoop, place the cream puff batter on the prepared sheet pans, spacing them about 1 1/2 inches/4cm apart. Brush the tops with the additional whisked egg to glaze.
Bake on the middle shelves of the oven for 10 minutes. Rotate the pans 180 degrees and reduce heat to 325F/160C/Gas 3. Bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes until the cream puffs are a deep, golden brown. Let cool completely on the pans on wire racks.
When cooled completely, horizontally slice the cream puffs and fill with fresh whipped cream or ice cream in whatever flavors you wish. If vanilla ice cream, dust with cocoa powder to finish. For other flavors, you can create your recipe by using other “dusts”—vanilla powder, fruit powders, etc.

16 Best Benefits Of Corn (Bhutta) For Skin, Hair And Health

Corn, also known as maize or our good old ( Bhutta/Makkai/Challi ) in Hindi, ‘ Mokka Jonnalu ‘ in Telugu, ‘ Makkacholam ‘ in Tamil, ‘ Cholam ‘ in Malayalam, ‘ Musukina Jol a’ in Kannada, ‘ Makkai ‘ in Gujarati, ‘ Makai ‘ in Marathi and Punjabi and ‘ Butta ‘ in Bengali. Corn is a large grain plant which is said to have originated in Mexico and Central America. Though viewed as a vegetable, it is actually a food grain. The leafy stalk of the plant produces ears, which contain the grains known as kernels. For every kernel on the cob, there is a strand of silk. The white and yellow kernels are most popular, but today, corn is available in red, brown, blue and purple also. The white and yellow hybrids are known as butter and sugar corn which contain both kinds of kernels. This cereal is known for its pleasant taste and its versatility. Baby corn is available in cans or jars in the supermarkets and is used in Asian cooking. This grain is generally available in summer and can be

The History of Aluminum Foil: Just Don't Call it Tin Foil
