Apple Skillet Brownies a la Evin!

Hi, I'm Nobody.

And this.

This is Evin. (And baby Marian and Pioneer Woman!) That Ree girl keeps some good company. Just sayin'.

So. The other day, as I was roaming listlessly around the Recipe Exchange here on AR, I made a very open recipe request.

'WHAT SHOULD I COOK' I demanded of the sweet and kind ladies that normally reside there.

This was the response from Evin's personal recipes.

Invigorated, I grabbed my skillet!

And threw it into my shamefully crusty oven at 350 degrees.

(I'm sorry I used 'crusty' to describe my oven.)

(I'm sorry my oven is 'crusty'. :<)

Next you need a mixing bowl.

Bonus points if it has a kitschy mushroom motif.

To the bowl, add 1 cup of flour...

And a half cup each of brown and white sugar.

1/4 tsp of salt.

Mental note: Do not pour salt over bowl. Very hard to separate extra salt from white sugar and flour.

Now come the spices! Two teaspoons of cinnamon!

And nutmeg!

These are nutmeg berries that I found at a bulk food store. And they were so weird and shrivelled and weird that I bought them without even knowing exactly what they were.

(I live dangerously like that.)

But as it turns out, you grate these little suckers...

But if you aren't that industrious (or risque!)...

Or if weird little veins inside of shrivelled nut-things freak you out...

This is the perfect solution.

The solution to a food blogger that uses 'crusty', 'shrivelled', and 'nut-things'?

Still working on that.

Moving on...

Add 1 teaspoon nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves, and give the dry ingredients a quick little stir.

Now grab yourself (teehee) some apples.

I had three slightly worse for wear mcintosh apples.

I only had to peel and chop two of them to get about 2 cups.

You take these and...

Ahem. Excuse me, but you're in the shot.

Could you scooch over just a tad?


... add to your dry mixture and toss to coat!

Now you'll need some nut-things. Non-shrivelled variety, please.

(I ate the broken pieces to make this picture pretty. I'm just that committed to excellence. And food. Omnom.)

I gave these a rough chop (even though the recipe didn't say to), and chucked them into the bowl with the apples.

Now rustle up two eggs!

And crack them into a bowl.

Cracked yolk because I'm a spaz and crushed the egg like the Incredible Hulk: Check.

Give those eggs a whisk.

And fetch thee the butter, wench!

I wish I had someone to yell things like that at.

Because then they'd put the butter in a bowl and melt it.

But since neither of us has a kitchen staff, you'll have to do that part yourself.

Once the butter is melted...

... pour it, and what remains of your dignity, onto the table.

After you've scraped as much butter as possible back into the bowl, add a teaspoon of vanilla.

AIMING VERY, VERY CAREFULLY... pour the wet ingredients in with the apple/dry mixture.

Stir just until combined.

Look at how caramel-y colored and delicious this looks. If you want to just eat it now, I give you permission. Unless raw eggs freak you out. Which they probably don't, since you made it past the shrivelled nut-things...

But if you do decide to cook it first.

Fetch thee the skillet from the oven!

Careful, it's hot. (You'd think this would be a no-brainer, but the scar on my right hand proves otherwise.)

You're gunna want about a tablespoon of butter.

Let that melt and give it a little swirl to distribute it evenly over the skillet.

Then find the nearest teenager and bribe it with the first piece of brownie to pose holding the bowl and looking like he's actually helping by placing the batter in the skillet.

After you take a picture, you might want to confiscate the bowl again (because teenage boys most definitely are not freaked out by raw eggs).

I smoothed this out a little before popping it back into the oven for about 20 minutes.

The recipe states 40 minutes, but my oven is an antique freak of nature that is possibly heated by magma from the earth's core. It's just that old.

And then when you pull it from the oven...

And you see the golden, slightly crispy edges...

And you scramble to the cupboard for a knife so you can cut a piece RIGHT NOW...

I don't know about you...

But I heard Etta James.

Aaaaaaaaaaat laaaaaaast....

My loooooove has come along....

My lonely daaays are over....

And life is liiike a sooong...

You need these brownies in your life. Evin commands it. ETTA JAMES commands it.

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cloves
2 cups apple, diced or chopped fine
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup butter, melted (no substitutions)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon butter

Preheat oven to 350. Place 8 or 9 in cast iron skillet in oven to heat.
In a medium bowl, mix flour, sugars, spices and salt.
Add chopped apples and toss to coat. (Add pecans o.o)
Add butter, extract and beaten eggs, stir to combine.
Place reserved butter into hot skillet, swirl around pan to coat.
When butter in pan is melted, add batter and bake 40 minutes.

I'd love to invite you over for some...


They're all gone. :(

Great blog No :) It was worth the wait. And I have to say I find it hilarious that you used a mushroom bowl to make Evin's recipe. Completely and irrationally cracks me up! And as always amazing pics! Hmm I see an apple looking at me from my fruit bowl...
Feb. 11, 2010 5:41 pm
Nobody! I bow to thee, my princess of food blogging! Mahvelous dahling! Just Mahvelous!
Feb. 11, 2010 5:46 pm
These look tasty. Loved your blog. The humor was well placed and the pictures are great! You should post one of your photos to her recipe if it's ok with Evin.
Feb. 11, 2010 5:50 pm
Great blog....great pictures...thanks for the smile!
Feb. 11, 2010 5:51 pm
So, I think I am making these for my valentines day dessert. They look to easy to not try! And the blog was a beauty.
Feb. 11, 2010 5:54 pm
that looks deeee-licious. just curious, though, what exactly makes them "brownies"? the consistency?
Feb. 11, 2010 5:55 pm <--- Make sure you guys are giving Evin a shout-out for her brownies when you make them! :D
Feb. 11, 2010 5:56 pm
Yeah, has a more brownie than a cake consistancy. :)
Feb. 11, 2010 5:57 pm
I've "arrived"!! NG has blogged me!!!
Feb. 11, 2010 5:57 pm
Oh, NO, you know what? Mine looked exactly the I guess it turned out the right way. Know what else? My KA is named Etta James, cuz I waited so long for mine, and I always said that when I got it, I just knew that song would play in my head. How funny. Great job as usual.
Feb. 11, 2010 6:03 pm
and what if one doesn't have a cast iron skillet? *tear*
Feb. 11, 2010 6:06 pm
Great blog! You do such a wonderful job of entertaining us! Great pictures too!
Feb. 11, 2010 6:13 pm
Tears of laughter again! Thanks for the wonderful blog.
Feb. 11, 2010 6:57 pm
Awesome blog and those apple skillet brownies look fabulous. I will be trying to recreate this wonderful recipe, following all steps except, hopefully, the pouring butter onto the table and scraping butter from the table ones. Thanks for making this recipe come alive!
Feb. 11, 2010 7:02 pm
Wonderful blog!!!! NG, I LOVE your sense of humor! those brownies look delicious!
Feb. 11, 2010 7:10 pm
Wonderful wonderful blog, No. Those look scrumptious!! Well Done!
Feb. 11, 2010 7:32 pm
I stumbled upon your blog last night and read it all! you are hilarious, great pictures too :o) can't wait for more!
Feb. 11, 2010 7:34 pm
Yum! I want one now...
Feb. 11, 2010 7:34 pm
you should blog about one of MY recipes next!!
Feb. 11, 2010 7:35 pm
...please?!?! (LOL)
Feb. 11, 2010 7:57 pm
Gorgeously delicious! Bravo!
Feb. 11, 2010 8:57 pm
LOL. What a wonderful blog and the recipes looks and sounds yummy. Will have to give it a try.
Feb. 12, 2010 12:45 am
This almost makes me want to get into bloggin', but I'm afraid one of us would make the other look bad. I guess I better stay with cookin', so I don't embarrass my sweet self. I want to learn how to make the recipe you so kindly spoofed. Maybe if I pay real, real close attention, I can learn to spoof a recipe, too. You're good.
Feb. 12, 2010 3:50 am
Thanks NG and Evin for the great recipe (and the wonderful entertainment.)
Feb. 12, 2010 3:58 am
Awesome blog as always! Love how you got the butter pouring onto the table :)
Feb. 12, 2010 6:38 am
Great blog! I love your sense of humor, and Evin, your recipe is a WINNER! And I feel like I'm in such great company now...I also sing "At Last" when I'm about to delve into some delectable dessert!!!
Feb. 12, 2010 7:27 am
LMAO, I made these brownies and some how did not have quite that much fun with them, hmmmm. Next time you are doing cooking class, call me on the RE and we can cook together. Great blog-loved it;)
Feb. 12, 2010 7:57 am
I love your blogs and your pictures are great! Keep up your good work.
Feb. 12, 2010 11:46 am
Great post! Loved the pictures; great job. :)
Feb. 12, 2010 1:12 pm
Thanks for all the comments and support, ladies! <3 Skoo, if you don't have a skillet, you can probably use a small casserole dish in the same way. :)
Feb. 12, 2010 1:22 pm
Love your blogs and your sense of humor! Your pics are amazing!
Feb. 12, 2010 1:34 pm
I hate clowns. Can I still comment? Great pictures and captions and the brownies look fabulous!
Feb. 12, 2010 1:37 pm
Great, now I need these brownies! I was able to resist them last week when they popped up on the RE due to personal issues but this week my appetite for noms is back and these are lookin' great. Evin should submit this for publication, and they should publish it, because clearly it works, and I have never seen a skillet apple brownie recipe before. Certainly not on here! Great blog, Nobody's Girl, I always enjoy your way of delivering the lines!
Feb. 12, 2010 1:43 pm
I love your pictures. And your blog is pretty terrific as well. As for Evin's recipe, I'm sure it's fabulous, but I'll be trying it out soon just to make sure...
Feb. 12, 2010 1:48 pm
STOP IT!!! It's too delicious sounding and too beautiful! Love the pictures, and the text!
Feb. 12, 2010 1:54 pm
Feb. 12, 2010 1:57 pm
oops, got so excited and clicked prematurely...bwahh hah ha ha aha ha ah ahhh. anyhooo, love this blog, again! very entertaining, awesome eye candy, or is that food porn! whatever it is, i love it. looking forward to more. no pressure:)
Feb. 12, 2010 2:43 pm
What an awesome blog. If only I weren't on a very low fat diet I'd be making that recipe!! Very nice picture placement and I love you humor. I must now read all your blogs.. they better be just as good! just kidding.. keep up the great work!
Feb. 12, 2010 2:57 pm
I love the fact that this is made in a cast iron skillet! That makes it even better. Woo-hoo, I gotta whip up a batch... looks so good!
Feb. 12, 2010 5:03 pm
Hey Deb, What ever happened to girls and YOUNGER KIDS go first?!
Feb. 12, 2010 8:40 pm
Not only are your Blogs wonderfully entertaining, your recipes are wonderfully delicious! Keep doing what you do!
Feb. 13, 2010 4:08 am
So happy to see your great blog again with all the fantastic photos!!
Feb. 13, 2010 6:43 am
My dear, you are a girl after my own heart, for I believe that cooking should be joyful and fun! You succeeded in making a beautiful dessert and making me want to join in your fun by making it myself, which is what I am about to do! And it doesn't hurt that you used my favorite song in the entire world(At Last)and set the entire thing to music! What more could one ask for??? Maybe calorie free??? N-O-T!
Feb. 13, 2010 7:33 am
What a delightful blog - thank you so much for the pure enjoyment. Reminded me of "The I Hate To Cook Cookbook" of my grandmother's generation(the author actually loved to cook). Maybe you could pen an updated version.
Feb. 13, 2010 8:00 am
Great read, but because I have to be me I must point out that without chocolate they are apple blondies....
Feb. 13, 2010 8:17 am
I too have apples on my kids will love you tonight!
Feb. 13, 2010 8:21 am
I plan to make this dessert tomorrow for valentine's day. You should write a cookbook about baking with humor. You have a great style.
Feb. 13, 2010 10:36 am
Ohhhh, you're blog is hilarious! Gave me and hubby a good chuckle this morning. Great pics too!
Feb. 13, 2010 1:37 pm
I LOVE the way you put you blog together. These photos are practically food porn! Definitely giving this recipe a try. Thanks for the inspiration! :)
Feb. 13, 2010 2:11 pm
Yes, I would agree food porn. I have been taken. Have to make this one soon. You gave me great joy reading your blog. I used to make something like this when I loved near an apple orchard we ate apple everything and I miss that. Thanks Lisa
Feb. 13, 2010 3:43 pm
Very amusing and very informative recipe. Am very excited to make these for myself and girlfriend. look amazingly delicious. I'll just have to go run out to the nearest safeway and grab myself (teehee) the some apples and nutmeg! haha
PG Cook 
Feb. 13, 2010 4:22 pm
This sounds scrumptious! My man will go gaga over these I'm sure - now I just have to choose between his favorite chocolate cake and these apple brownies for his valentine dessert! Loved the blog too!
Feb. 13, 2010 4:38 pm
OMG!!! Looks awesome, and the photos are amazing...Love the visual play by play... :)
Feb. 13, 2010 4:51 pm
Yummmmmyyy! Fantastic recipe. Thanks!
Feb. 13, 2010 6:19 pm
Had to post again - made this tonight and we all loved it!!! I wonder if you can make cooking (rather than baking...) that exciting?? Excellent blog, excellent recipe!! Thanks!
Feb. 13, 2010 6:33 pm
Whoa! Thank you so much for all the brilliant compliments, everyone! Make sure you send thanks out to Evin for the wicked good brownies (blondies, eh lmp? :x). Have a happy valentines day!
Feb. 13, 2010 6:50 pm
I loved reading your blog! Sooooo funny! Great pictures!!!
Mary Lou 
Feb. 13, 2010 6:51 pm
So entertaining and looks scrumptious. Would like to make for company next week, but puleeze - any way this can be done when one doesn't have a cast iron skillet?
Feb. 13, 2010 7:31 pm
Hey Mary Lou. Try using a similiar sized casserole/pyrex dish, and the same method. Good luck!
Feb. 13, 2010 11:05 pm
I'll make the apple brownie for my DH tomorrow, and I'll make the chocolate cookies for me. After all I am the chocoholic in the family, and I'll be doing all the cooking. We'll see what all I can get away with here. Our bottomless-pit son is coming over, and I may have to hurt him to keep him out of both of these. It depends on what he brings as gifts for Valentine Day. Let's see just how smart he's become in the last 40 years. I probably better hide both brownies and cookies. Sometimes he ain't too bright. I gotta love him, tho. He's my first born.
Feb. 13, 2010 11:10 pm
Great blog.The photos made me feel like I was watching the food network in slow motion :=). Super
Feb. 14, 2010 4:35 am
The recipe looks fabulous, and the narrative was priceless! And since I just happen to have a few shriveled apples in the fridge, I'm off to bake brownies!
Feb. 14, 2010 9:53 am
Looks great, Evin, can't wait to try this recipe. Those of you who don't have cast iron, DO NOT use a glass or ceramic baking dish. To add room temperature batter to a pre-heated glass dish will crack it. Go to an antique shop and buy a Wagner cast iron skillet, or another brand with a smooth surface, look up how to season it, it's easy, and that will be the best $20 investment in cookware you'll ever make, I use mine almost every day. Another choice would be to use a stainless, copper or aluminum fry pan with an oven proof handle, or a metal cake or pie tin. These options won't work quite the same as the cast iron because they don't hold heat as long as the thick cast iron, but they won't be damaged. Do not use glass, it will break.
Feb. 14, 2010 12:29 pm
so hilarious! and the brownie looks awesome!
Feb. 14, 2010 1:13 pm
This looks awesome, the blog made me wet myself !!! Not really but almost ! Keep it up and thanx for the recipe!!!!1
Feb. 14, 2010 1:41 pm
What a great blog, thanks!
Feb. 14, 2010 2:13 pm
As always, your blog is so much fun to read.. love the pics :)
Feb. 14, 2010 5:01 pm
Wow NG, I cannot believe that you aren't paid $ for writing with great humour like we are treated to. Very much enjoyed. You made many people chuckle.
Feb. 14, 2010 11:43 pm
I have to try this recipe. great blog. I don't think my brownies will be nearly as entertaining.
Feb. 15, 2010 6:06 am
I have to add my two cents to Image - he/she is RIGHT. Do not put anything glass or ceramic in th oven to preheat - when you add the batter, it will shatter. I don't want to be responsible for broken casserole dishes across the country/world. Use a frying pan that's oven safe (unsure? wrap any non-metal parts in tin foil) OR just use a regular casserole and don't preheat. The purpose of the cast iron skillet - by preheating it, the instant you put the batter in the hot pan, it kind of "fries" and gives the brownies an AWESOME crust. It's a texture thing. Also, it's a presentation thing. LOL. LMP is right, technically they ARE apple blondies!
Feb. 15, 2010 8:30 am
I think this blog is funny. I think the same way and do you think I could write it down? Think again! Kudos to you and the same goes for the Apple Brownies. It's definately a keeper!!
Feb. 15, 2010 11:33 am
What a super, funny, entertaining, mouthwatering blog! If it woul not be so late (23.45 at night) I would be tempted to try this recipe this minute... but instead I have to go to bed and wait till tomorrow..
Feb. 15, 2010 1:20 pm
I can't even explain how hard I was laughing by the end of this! So entertaining!!! And a very nice blog on the practical side of things too, with step by step photos and all, thanks! :-)
Feb. 15, 2010 4:52 pm
I don't know which is more fun....eating the brownies, or reading the recipe.
Feb. 15, 2010 5:06 pm
This recipes sounds awesome. First thing tomorrow this is on my to do list. I just had to comment because I thought it was quite coincidental that I have EXACTLY the same mushroom bowl as you. You can bet that I will use that bowl when I try this recipe.
Feb. 15, 2010 5:59 pm
Absolutely great blog...made me save the recipe and think if I want to wash those dinner dishes up real quick to make room for this yumminess tonight! Gifted with drawing us in!
Feb. 15, 2010 8:00 pm
Totally enjoyed your blog. Very entertaining. I'm gonna have to get me a cast iron skillet. Not sure how you managed to successfully complete the recipe with the breaks to take pictures. I know I would have mixed something up.
Prof. BE 
Feb. 15, 2010 8:10 pm
For dessert following meat meals, traditional Jews do not use dairy products. Your butter (no substitutions) caveat--is that because butter is so yummy or because substituting non-dairy margarine will really crumb- up (bad pun intended) your recipe. Please advise.
Feb. 15, 2010 8:36 pm
I never really thought about it, but it probably isn't that safe to use a pyrex for this (I tend to think of pyrex as indestructable for some reason :x). I'm glad someone brought it up! - MN Nice: Mixed something up? Like pouring butter on your table? lol - Prof. BE: I can't see any reason why you couldn't use margarine. I would not use oil/shortening, however. I think maybe Evin just really, really loves butter? :x Best of luck, and thanks for all the comments, guys! <3
Feb. 15, 2010 8:48 pm
Woo Hoo! I can't wait to make this!
Feb. 15, 2010 9:03 pm
NG, your blog is great! You could give Pioneer Woman a run for her money!! I can't wait to read the next one and the Apple Brownies look so yummy! I love to cook in a cast iron pan so this will be fun!!
Feb. 16, 2010 4:19 am
Morning nobody, Loved the blog,thanks for the laughs, the pictures are great and dessert looks great! Have some apples and plan on making that today.
Feb. 16, 2010 7:50 am
Hey NG, do you think I could make this in a frying pan on top of the stove? I don't have an oven, but it sounds so delicious I am going to try. I loved ur photos and the way you threw stuff into the bowl.
Feb. 16, 2010 9:39 am
How do I save this to my recipe box?
Feb. 16, 2010 9:41 am
Oh, just found the link and saved that. Thanx
Feb. 16, 2010 10:40 am
if any of y'all who don't have a cast iron skillet just happen to have one of the stoneware pans from pampered chef, these will work. Maybe it's the old adage "ignorance is bliss," but I've been using a pyrex glass dish for an oven pancake recipe in which one preheats the pan with a stick of butter (in a 500 degree oven! gasp!) before pouring in room temp batter & I've never had an issue. I wish I could hyperlink it but I don't know how. Look up "aeggekaegge" in the search bar; it's on here. I took the pic myself.
Feb. 16, 2010 11:32 am
Love it!! So much fun right when I needed a reason to smile. Thank you, Nobody'sGirl!! =)
Feb. 16, 2010 12:28 pm
Fantastic blog, loved it:-)
Feb. 16, 2010 1:08 pm
loved it! pleasant cooking

Feb. 16, 2010 2:00 pm
Still laughing!!!!!!:)
Feb. 16, 2010 2:10 pm
Such a wonderful read TY for sharing PS great recipe!
Feb. 16, 2010 3:26 pm
It seems to me many talented cooks are also humorists and gifted writers. I wonder which comes first? At any rate I so enjoy the bounty of both as it enlarges my laghter and not my waistline. I do admit though, this apple brownie fits my needs, with my hang-along leftovers from Fall. Thanks for the pointers I picked up along the down arrow,next month I'm buyin' in as a supp mem,gotta learn how to get coputer literete from my grandauter,Ad,I shamed my mother who was a top notch military secretary because I flunked typing school. If she were alive she would die all over to know I've learned more about typing now w/AR because she never liked to cook!! That's Life, now, what was that bread recipe and that tofu stir fry---?
Feb. 16, 2010 3:55 pm
Yes, Evin reallly REALLY loves butter. I think you could use margerine but I'd rather use shortening or lard. Butter flavored crisco would be my next choice after butter - because margerine has so much water. And because it tastes like poo :)
Feb. 16, 2010 6:02 pm
mmm sign me up :)
Feb. 16, 2010 9:39 pm
Butter just makes some recipes taste better. I made this yesterday and it made my kitchen smell so good. It was easy to make and very good. The recipe is going in my "keeper" book.
Feb. 17, 2010 8:41 am
Anxious to make this, since looks SOOO good. Maybe am cooking dumb or just dumb cook but why didn't anyone ask about your directions: "place 8 or 9 (what?) into cast iron skillet to heat." Am thinking must be butter, but directions only called for 1 T. before heating. So would someone please let me know what NG is referring to w/ "8 or 9"? Thanks in advance, would really appreciate.
Feb. 17, 2010 8:58 am
This was JUST what I needed today! My 1 year old and I are home sick with a cold...I was reading her a book thinking "We need a pick me brownies...too bad she can't eat chocolate..." then we came to "P is for Pie"...I thought PERFECT! too bad we only have 2 apples and no pie crust...Then I looked on the site and BAM! Gooey apple goodness is now bubbling in the oven!
Feb. 17, 2010 9:02 am
oh, and by the way, Artistbuff, I think she means 8 or 9 inch skillet ;)

Feb. 17, 2010 10:38 am
Thank you for the laughs, loved your blog, can't wait for more! This sounds so yummy! Got some apples my son decided to juggle with, now I know what to make for breakfast! =0)
Feb. 17, 2010 11:42 am
I just found your blog... I love, love, love your articles :)..I just subscribed to your blog and hoping to see more coming in the future.
Feb. 17, 2010 12:53 pm
Loved your I have Etta James on my brain....will go home tonight and make these!! This is nothing short of food it!! ;)
Feb. 17, 2010 4:27 pm
Just read it again - I hate you!!! Just kidding. I'm going to make this for a potluck one of these days. Thank you Evin AND NbG
Feb. 17, 2010 4:28 pm
Or maybe I'll make it for Church fellowship time next week - it could bake during Bible Study and then we'll all be in 'heaven.'
Feb. 17, 2010 5:36 pm
Great blog post. I'm looking forward to trying this recipe, it looks great. Nice writing too, I love a good laugh at someone else's expense. :-)
Feb. 17, 2010 10:29 pm
funny and fun illustration of your recipe...thats interesting!!!!nice hey!
Feb. 17, 2010 11:43 pm
yes thx for the smile, looks great and sounds great too. I'll have to try it
Feb. 18, 2010 3:02 am
Thanx, Kendallou, that sort of makes the most sense. Hope NG confirms.

Feb. 18, 2010 7:58 am
I cannot wait to try this delightful recipe! Apples are good for us and cooking/baking IS fun! Thanks...Joyce
Feb. 18, 2010 11:26 am
As soon as I wipe the tears of laughter from my eyes I may just make some of these. Thanks for a good recipe and a great after-dinner laugh! Susanne

helenapu - Uhm, I don't know if you can make it soley on top of the stove. You'd have a VERY crispy bottom! : Artistbuff - Just means you place the skillet into the oven. I didn't notice the directions were a little wonky there. : Kendallou - Thx for clarifying! : swchef - lol, <3 you too! :x : EVERYONE!@!! - Thank you SO MUCH for commenting! I can't believe how many comments are on this one little blog. <3!

This recipe is wonderful! The family loves it. But, I would love to buy your frying pan. I had one years ago just like and can't find that shape to replace it. Please let me know if you're willing. Thanks Marietta

Oops! I got confused! Sorry! I thought this was Evin's, but now I realize that it was recommended by Evin... duh! My brain is on an unscheduled vacation... (I wish it would have informed me first!) Anyway, I still love the blog! Great job, Nobody's Girl!

About Me
I'm 25 years old, and I've just started to really learn my way around a kitchen. There's been a few disasters, but it's all a learning experience. Life is a journey, not a destination!
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake! Cookies, cakes, anything sweet and tasty. I'm on the prowl for the perfect chocolate icing recipe. It eludes me as yet.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every sunday in the summer months my family has a potluck barbeque. We all live fairly close together, so we throw together something tasty to eat and head over to my uncle's house to grill. It's been like that since I was little. In mid-may, around the 15th, we have a lobster boil, and each year we have different holiday dinners at a certain person's house.
My cooking triumphs
I have finally recreated my grandma's stuffing recipe! It's very few ingrediants, but I just could never get it right. You know how grandmas are; 'a pinch' of this, 'a handful' of that. Next up; her soft molasses cookies.
My cooking tragedies
Oh god. I don't know if they're -tragedies- so much as cooking snafus. I remember making mac and cheese without cooking the roux (didn't have half a clue was a roux was anyway). It was disgusting, cheese-flavored flour-paste. Oh! Here's a good one. Once upon a time, I put on hot dogs to boil, then I went into the computer room to chill out. So I'm cruisin' the internet and the SMOKE ALARM goes off. I rush out the kitchen! The water is evaporated and the hot dogs are BURNT to the bottom of the pan. Try telling someone that knows that you've burnt BOILED HOT DOGS that the cake you're serving them is safe to eat. :x
