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).

It's the Easter Bunny...

For the first time in (oh, really, I can't even remember when) the weather on this Easter Sunday is bee-you-tee-ful! The entire weekend has been the stuff of legend.

To update you, the angel food cake last week - never happened. Well, let me fill you in...

I did bake a second one. Egg whites whipped perfectly (at least I'm pretty sure they were - they looked just like the picture), but again, the cake fell out of the pan and onto the wine bottle I had set it over. So, no angel food cake. Thank goodness for frozen pies - and they were delicious.

This week it's meringue nests with Peeps chicks and jelly bean eggs. All sugar, all the time.

It's clear from Mr. Hinkelgruber's menu, he's been sucked into the belief that summer is fast approaching. I'll remind him and everyone else: April's coming and there's a reason for "April showers bring May flowers!" You know the rain's a-coming.

Oh, and no April Foolin' - April 1 is the start of baseball season! WOOHOO! Batter up!
