Wow, 904 posts? Who knew I had so much to say? Or that I could stretch so little for so long. Post 1000 will be here before I know it. I should plan some super-awesome giveaway or something. That sounds like a great idea. Or it could be the medication talking. Kittens, giving a high five to 44,000 students has consequences. I am now suffering with an itchy throat, runny nose and congested chest.
Besides the DayQuil, I’m going with the age-old remedy, feed a cold. Which is why I have, not one, but TWO fudge pies in the oven. I was going to do a Moron Test Kitchen, but my camera battery is dead, so I’ll just give you the recipe. I chose it because it uses a bunch of junk I have in the cabinets, but never use, like evaporated milk and cornstarch. As a sidenote, this recipe came from my family cookbook, you know the kind where all the relatives put in their favorite recipes? Interestingly enough, there’s one from me! It’s a recipe for Mexican Wedding Cake which I don’t think I’ve actually even tasted much less cooked, but what are mom’s for if not helping you fake your way through a family cookbook, amiright?
This recipe was submitted by Geneva Lewis Glasgow, who fortunately, doesn’t read this blog.
Fudge Pie – 2 cups sugar, 6 tablespoons butter, 1 cup Pet milk, 3 egg yolks, 4 tablespoons cornstarch, 1/4 cup cocoa, and 1 tablespoon vanilla. Mix together and pour into 2 regular pie crusts. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
Moron Test Grade: Unclear. Uh, no offense Geneva, but something is off. My pie was good, don’t get me wrong, but it was runny. It was more like a baked pie crust covered in chocolate syrup.
Update: After sitting out for about an hour, the pie is beginning to set up and is YUMMY. If Geneva read my blog, I might actually apologize.
