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).

Tiramisu...or Terrible Misery?

According to a local chef, tiramisu is Italian for "pick-me-up." We'll see, as I attempt to make one for this Sunday's dinner. I've already made my own mascarpone cheese (yep, you read it right - I made it!), and now I just have to make the Italian sponge cake and assemble it. If nothing else, the flavors will be terrific.

I was awakened this morning by what I thought was rain, but turned out to be squatters (read:  rodents) in the ceiling of our bedroom. They have one more week to find the bait boxes and feast themselves silly before Mr. Hinkelgruber goes in after them. (I'm rooting for the feasting!) In the meantime, I've got to find a podcast that will drown them out.
