Chocolate Ganache

1/2 cup whipping cream (heavy cream) 35% fat
1 cup/6 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips, or chocolate in chunks
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Heat cream in the microwave on full power until it starts to boil.  This took about 1 minute in my microwave. Pour over chocolate, and stir until melted and smooth.  Stir in vanilla.  Easier to work with while warm.  Refrigerate and re-warm gently in the microwave when needed.

Skipping a week

Episode 81 will be coming out next week. My life is kind of dull right now, and I want to make sure I have enough interesting content to actually make it worthwhile to record and listen to.
