Lava meeting ice or me trying to make butterscotch?

by allthoughtswork

That’s how my pans ended up looking on the first try in 1995, anyway.

Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on who you ask, me or my pancreas), I went on to perfect the art of burnt sugar chiffon cake with burnt sugar buttercream frosting. (Believe me, it tastes waaay better than it sounds. Duncan Hines can suck it.)

Now I’m keto and have to watch lava on You Tube to relive the drama.

Please, please Stop !!!

by duncanr

Sometimes you can have too much of a good thing.

31 yr old Cheng Yu from Beijing certainly thinks so. He is fed up to here with his wife’s cooking.

It’s not that he places undue demands on her or is fiercely critical of her culinary skills. He doesn’t ask for much. A simple Ma Po Tofu with some egg-fried rice would do or duck with green peppers and black bean sauce

Instead, she gives him cake.

Cake for breakfast.

Cake for lunch.

Cake for Dinner.

Cake for Supper.

Cake for every sodding meal, every bastard day of the week.

Now Cheng Yu has threatened to divorce Tian Mae, 27, if she doesn’t stop baking.
