homemade chocolate pudding

It is a sad fact that most folks under the age of 60 don’t remember how to make homemade chocolate pudding from scratch. Boxed pudding (like Jell-O Brand – yikes!) was introduced to the American public during the processed food explosion that gained momentum after WWII ended.

The incredible ease of making instant pudding by just emptying a box of sugar/chemicals into a bowl and mixing in some milk quickly eliminated any memory of how to cook homemade chocolate pudding over the stove with real ingredients!

panang curry

Tonight, I’m making a real crowd pleaser for dinner … my special panang curry recipe.    For those of you who love thai food as my entire family does, this dish is so simple and easy to make, why bother sitting in a restaurant when you can make it at your leisure at home with quality ingredients?

I’ve spent a good part of the weekend at a soccer tournament, so cooking was really the last thing I had time for.   This evening, with three very hungry kids, I decided to whip up the eternal favorite for dinner:  pizza made with homemade pizza crust.

There really aren’t any decent pizza crusts that can be purchased at the store at the moment.
