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).

Ahhh...the smell of gingerbread in the morning....

Well, OK, the smell of gingerbread anytime is a warming and comforting smell! The first recipe for December for my baking group is Ginger Baby Cakes. And, since I needed a dessert for tonight's dinner, how about we go with that one?!? I don't know if they're going to taste good baked, but I can tell you the batter for them is delicious! (And, for the record, I'm not really a batter/raw cookie dough fan...)

They turned out very cute, but rather than go out and buy a new set of pans (the recipe says it makes 8 4-inch miniature cakes) I made them in cupcake pans. So, all of you coming to dinner, feel good about eating two - or three! And, this means that again, I'm ahead on the homework. I may even volunteer to host for the baking group...or not.

Did I mention that Thanksgiving is early this year? Yeah? Well, it bears repeating - Thanksgiving is early this year! So, I'll be baking bread/rolls all week this week. When will I fit in a workout?
