File Under "Babies, Dutch"

The lovely Diane left us with a recipe for Dutch Baby, which, alas, is not a sex act between some blue eyed, rosy cheeked blond and an illegal Turkish immigrant in an Amsterdam toilet, but rather, a morning pastry rather like a big ass popover. You make a very simple batter with eggs, milk, flour and sugar, sort of like one for a crepe, melt butter in a skillet, carefully pour the batter in and shove it in a hottish oven for about twenty minutes.

The best part is announcing it's ready by careening through the house shrieking "WHO WANTS BABIEEEEEEEEEES?" Plus, it's terribly tasty.

  4. Eating Baby used to be a rare and unusual treat, but sadly now in the South its become mundane. Why not a day goes by that someone hasn’t eaten their baby or discarded their baby in the trash or in a toilet at the prom.

    Perhaps Mitzi is on to something, Crisp Potato Fadge Baby.
