Well, after long thought (OK, 17 seconds) I've decided the Hinkelgruber family menu should be brought to the web. A couple of things for you to remember: no substitutions (Charlie's not a short-order cook, after all), and change is inevitable - Charlie may not feel like cooking kim chee on a Tuesday! Oh, and there is one request: if you're joining us for dinner, please either call or text the Scary Lady (you know the number - if you don't, you're really not invited).

I don't like the cold, I don't like the wet (don't care that it's the rain that keeps it green here - it's still wet, dank, and cold!), but I love the baking.
It's Mr. Hinkelgruber's workmates' bad luck that they're my lab rats. Friday was 'snack-day' and they got a pumpkin roll - never have made a jelly-roll, and it's a twist on one - but wasn't the most difficult thing I've tried. Gonna try a giant Hostess Snowball cake again - last week's attempt was a giant failure - so, I'm regrouping and putting my own twist to it. I'll let you know how it goes. There are garlic knots rising and ready to bake (if they're any good, my Thanksgiving guests will have these to choose from in the bread basket) and later I'm thinking cheesecake. (Well, in the spirit of full disclosure, the young college boy is coming home and cheesecake is his favorite!)
Got a request? Post a comment, and see what happens!
