OMG, THIS!!! I have THE hardest time getting couples out of piping bags. It's one of those "grin and bear it" kinda things, haha.
I hate stirring ganache. I make a lot of truffles and ganaches and I get SO BORED stirring ganache. I also make my ganache with goat cheese instead of cream (it has an insanely good tangy combo with dark chocolate) but it can be kinda grainy sometimes so I have to stir it sooooo much. I have callouses from stirring ganache. I usually plop down in front of the TV and stir, stir, stir!
