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).

Baseball's Back!!!

OK, so really it's just pre-season - but I got to see my Cubs play. Oh, I love those boys! (They won, by the way!) Favorite new player? Sczcur...and it's pronounced "Seezer". I can hardly wait to see his name on his uniform.

Have a new hobby, "Tuesdays with Dorie." Twice a month, I get to prepare a recipe from the book Baking with Julia and then blog about the experience with bakers from all over the world. (Oh, yeah - one woman from Switzerland read the last recipe (Rugelach) and said her hips were broadening just reading the recipe!) This week's dessert is from the first week:  Chocolate Truffle Tarts. Reading others' blogs say it's to die for. We'll see tomorrow! (Oh, and the rugelach was really, really tasty - not pretty, but really tasty!) Irish Soda Bread is coming later in the week, and while I've never been a big fan of soda bread - in for a penny, in for a pound.
