Chef Gemma Stafford describes how this recipe was inspired by her mom, and also is a bit of a twist on traditional profiteroles and Christmas Pudding. Be sure to use room temperature eggs. Another trick is to use a bit of the shoe pastry at the underside corners of the parchment to keep it in place in the oven. Also, Gemma has a new baking cookbook available for pre-sale now that features 115 delicious recipes.

Larissa Wohl is sharing tips for pet parents everywhere for what to do if there is an emergency or a natural disaster. First, create a disaster plan, write it down and share it with neighbors or a close friend who can be in charge. Next, keep a binder with information about your pet that you can keep with you when you are on the go. Pack an emergency bag with food and water for at least five days. There are meal replacement bars that can help save space when planning emergency food for your pet. Also keep a photo of you and your pet together, as well as a pet first aid kit.
Larissa has two wonderful pets featured that are up for adoption! Indulf, a big mellow dog is a Great Pyreneese who gets along well with other animals. Larissa’s second dog is Bomber! He is a Shepherd mix who has been at the shelter for quite a while. Steve from Woods Humane Society shares that Bomber is ready for a loving home, and that he would best be suited for a close and connected owner.
