You Should Make This Today.

So, the kitchen is my favorite room in the home.  I could cook, bake, and eat all day long.  I love food.  So maybe every once in a while, I'll put my favorite recipes on here.  They will probably usually often be dessert.  :)

I made this yesterday in celebration of finding a 2 quart dish that I forgot I owned. It's kind of like finding that random 5 dollar bill in your pocket.

You really should make this today:

Baked Chocolate Pudding

8 ounces chocolate chips
2 c. cream
1/4 c. sugar
1 t. vanilla
4 eggs
pinch of salt

Preheat the oven to 325.  Get out your blender and put the chocolate chips in.  Via microwave or stovetop (I prefer microwave), scald the cream.  Pour the scalded cream over the chocolate chips.  Blend.  Add the sugar.  Add the eggs one at a time while the blender is whirling.  Add the salt and vanilla and whirl until smooth and shiny (just for a minute).  Pour into a 2 quart or larger baking dish.  Bake for 60 to 70 minutes, or until toothpick comes out pudding-y instead of liquid-y.  :)

This recipe reminds me SOOO much of my momma. 

It makes about 6 servings.  It's VERY rich and just a few spoonfuls a person in a small ramekin would be enough.  If you want to make it pretty- it's yummy with a dollop of whipped cream and a strawberry or raspberry.  I always eat it warm, but it's just as good room temperature or cold.
