DO I SOUND LIKE ELLEN?

I'm doing a bit of an experiment with sound recording these days and so I thought I would read Chapter 1 of Life's Great Dare. If your preference is audio books and podcasts, this might be for you!  If you haven't grabbed the free PDF of the Intro and Chapter 1 you can get that here!

So click the pic below to get the AUDIO of CHAPTER 1 now.

People say I sound like Ellen Degeneres (or Dory the fish from Finding Nemo!) Would you agree?

If you're from Canada, you can purchase your copy of the book now before it officially launches on March 31. 

It's called "BLUE DISH PUDDING".

Is there anything better than curling up with a steamy bowl of goodness when the frosty chill is cutting right though? This year in Ontario, the winter hasn't been so bad, but this dish is my go-to when I feeling a bit frayed, weary, and cold.

Now, before you go judging this super-clever name (can you taste the sarcasm!), you should be warned...the look of this dessert is almost as appealing as the name.  It doesn't look that great when it's cooked, but if you are of the bread-pudding persuasion, you will love this recipe!

It is famously called Blue Dish Pudding because my mom made it in a heavy old blue baking dish that she got when she was married. I've inherited this gem and it still delivers some 42 years later!

Here's the recipe! Enjoy!  If you end up making it, let me know! Take a pic and send it to me or post to my Facebook Page!

In a medium size casserole dish, mix together:

  • 1 cup of flour
  • 3/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 cup of raisins
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup of milk

Then mix together and pour slowly over the mixture in the casserole dish:

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons of butter
  • 2 cups of boiling water

Throw in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes. It'll come out bubbly and piping hot!

I promise you it tastes amazing. It looks awful as it's going in (and quite honestly not that great when it comes out), but it's mm-mm-good! Enjoy.

Still wondering what "Honest in Christa's House" means?
