Karpon’s Folly (submitted by Adriana- and it is evilly delicious!)
So, we seem to have a DESERT theme going on here….fine by me! Here’s my recipe for an evil pound cake. Not sure what to call it, maybe someone can think of something.
3 sticks butter (softened) note: use butter, it makes it more
luscious and evil
3 cups sugar
3 cups flour
1 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons almond extract
2 teaspoons butter flavoring (if you don’t have butter & have to substitute margarine, use 1tbs of butter flavoring)
Heat oven to 350 degrees, then oil and flour a bunt pan. Cream butter and sugar together reduce mixer speed to medium. Add 1 cup of flour, then 2 of the eggs, repeating until all are mixed in. Dump the sour cream in, followed by the flavorings. Bake 90 minutes. Spread directly on hips and thighs – this stuff is fattening!
Chocolate chip – Add chocolate chips (I substitute vanilla flavoring for almond when I do this)
Cranberry orange – use vanilla flavoring, 2 tablespoons orange zest (fresh) and 2 1/2 cups lightly chopped fresh cranberries (I use a food processor for this)
Lemon – use vanilla flavoring and 2 tablespoons lemon zest. Fresh, of course.
Here’s a quick tip – to make zest quickly, just add the peel of your citrus and about 3 tablespoons of sugar to a blender or food processor – blend on high – this really works. Also, since different citrus fruits may have a stronger flavored peel, I suggest tasting the batter after adding 1 tablespoon of zest. I also feel it is a moral imperative to lick the beaters.
Smoky Legs (submitted by Carole)
I got this recipe from the chef of the busiest booth at the local renaissance festival over 10 years ago, but have yet to find ANYTHING to beat it on a hot summer afternoon for a poolside B-B-Q.
Plump turkey drumsticks (one per person please)
MEANS OF COOKING:
The rack should be about 6 to 8 inches from the coals.
Hickory chips that were soaked in water overnight.
WHAT YOU DO:
Start the grill. When the coals are uniformly dusted in grey ash, add the hickory chips.
Immediately replace the racks and put the drumsticks on them (at least 2 inches apart).
Close the lid on the grill and open the top vent.
This is a combination of smoking and barbecuing at the same time.
Periodically add charcoal and hickory chips, and don’t forget to rotate the drumsticks for even browning and to prevent burning.
Find your significant other. Give each other oiled body massages (the use of every other part of your body, but NOT your hands, is preferred). Keep those hands free to grab that drumstick, just like Henry VIII is often pictured as doing, slither up to your favorite man, and enjoy.

Blooey’s Famous Toll House Pie (submitted by Lisa Myer)
What delicacy is capable of taking Zanita’s mind off of her deliciously-handsome Tyber? This befuddling-ly rich dessert is a takeoff on the traditionalToll House pie, made even more mouth-watering by Blooey’s super-secret ingredients: Ghiradelli chocolate and toffee pieces.
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
Pinch of salt
1 cup (two sticks) melted and cooled unsalted butter
1 cup semi-sweet Ghiradelli chocolate, chopped into small
chunks – or – 1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup toffee pieces (optional)
1 cup chopped pecans (if you life in the south) or walnuts (if
you’re in the north) ;)
1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Whisk eggs in large mixing bowl until frothy. Add the sugars, flour, and pinch of salt and mix well. Add melted butter and combine thoroughly. Add chocolate, toffee pieces, and nuts; stir well. Pour in pie shell and bake in oven for one hour. The top of the pie will be brown and crinkled, like a cookie. Serve warm with – you guessed it! – cookie dough ice cream. (Blooey recommends Ben & Jerry’s brand.)
