I was excited to attempt Yorkshire puddings. I have tried these suckers many times and have failed over and over again. Even though I fail, I always have fun trying because all the recipes are super simple. I decided to try this recipe on allrecipes. I left everything out on the counter to warm up to room temperature. I also added a pinch of salt. I also turned the temperature down to 350F after 10 minutes and had the oven rack on the lowest rack. I was SO excited that they actually rose!
Our oven light is broken so I had to sneak quick peeks in the oven to make sure they were cooked. Took about 25-30 minutes. I really don't actually remember.
After dinner, we played cards Vietnamese style. =) I'm not even sure what the game is called but it's almost like a Vietnamese version of Mahjong. And if you're not sure what Mahjong is... Well... It's a Chinese thing. After a couple hours of cards, I was craving something sweet so I decided to whip up a batch of brownies! I cut the recipe in half. I just use the recipe that comes on the box of Baker's Chocolate.
It baked in almost half the time! And we topped off the hot brownies with a bit ol' scoop of vanillie ice cream! Delish! I'm pretty sure my belly was sad and happy at the same time.
