Simple ways to make things simple

Doesn’t that make your mouth water? One thing I LOVE to do is bake! I used to bake with my grandmother when I was growing up and there is something about the way it makes me feel. I remember being so little she would have to pull a stool up just so I was tall enough to see over the countertop and then let me use her big wooden spoon to mix everything up.

No matter HOW incapable of baking you THINK you are, this recipe is SO SIMPLE that you have no excuse and you must try it! This desert is the perfect thing to serve your guests and they will think you are the perfect host or hostess! For those of you who have attempted Martha Stewart and failed miserably, this will prove that you can do something divine in the kitchen. Trust me!

One suggestion of mine would be to make the batter just before dinner and then bake these about 20 minutes before you’re ready to serve dessert. They are so incredibly delicious hot that it truly must be a sin.
