    As Halloween approaches, I saw a great meme for you Wizard of Oz and Hostess snack cake fans:

    For those of you who are not aware of Hostess Bakeries products, they make the above chocolate snack called Ding Dongs. Recently, I tried their "Ghost" Ding Dongs which are a new offering:

    They are pretty good, as far as pre-packaged snacks go. Still laughing at the meme. :)

    In previous posts, I have mentioned that my favorite type of Oreo cookie is the White Fudge Covered Oreo (see pictures in earlier posts.) That remains my favorite Oreo, but a new #2 favorite Oreo has come on the scene and pushed out all other contenders:

    The dark chocolate fudge coating and dark chocolate crème filling blend perfectly with the dark chocolate wafers. Really good and worth a try if you are an Oreo lover.

    I am pleased to announce that I have found a new leading candidate for my birthday cake (this is early as my birthday is in the Fall) and it is fantastic:

    Chocolate cake wrapped around a whipped cream frosting and, the "piece de resistance," covered with chocolate sprinkles (we call them "jimmies" up here in the Greater Boston area.) It is absolutely a treat that any chocolate lover should try.

    Oh, I understand you. I can't resists the temptation to buy all such cakes when I go shopping. I even think of trying to cook it alone, but can't find the good recipe.

    I am pleased to report that I have sampled many a brownie in my lifetime. I have a favorite type which is deep chocolate brownies with white chocolate icing drizzled over them. They look like this:

    The white chocolate drizzle complements the dark fudge brownie and makes it a special treat.

    So, lately I have been thinking about a couple of the many Italian restaurants in the Federal Hill section of Providence (Italian neighborhood.) I have not had RI-style Calamari (squid) in years now, and I need to get it back on the radar screen:

    Lightly fried calamari with hot peppers would be perfect right now. Hopefully, sometime soon.

    Please be advised that I am returning my "Anthony Bourdain/Martha Steward model" tinfoil hat. I put it on when in the kitchen, and I still burn, over cook, or under cook, just about everything I touch. And the worst part is that while I am cooking in the kitchen, I can hear my guests snickering in the background because I am wearing said tinfoil hat.:mad:

    Sorry, but Anthony Bourdain has died and, along with him, the warranty on that model hat has also expired.


    The good news is that you simply need our "I Hear Snickering Behind My Back" Tinfoil Hat with the special ear muff extensions and that problem will disappear immediately. Over time, if you wear this hat diligently, you also will come to realize that it is snickering of envy, anyway.
