This is probably a stupid question, but I have always worried whether the inside gets hot enough to make the eggs safe. I've made them using this recipe, but I've always wondered.

Well, you can do it the way we do in restaurants and in school --- ganache centers. Your cake is baked and the center oozes because it's ganache. Plus you can assemble the batter ahead of time and bake as you need.
I was trying to get Medrich's recipe and found this, which has her and Keller's:

That's what I was originally thinking to do--make ganache, roll some truffle balls, and drop them into the center of the batter.

I don't even know why I'm wanting to do this. I'm not a big chocolate eater and don't normally have any desire to eat things like this. lol

The signature in my copy of The Fault in Our Stars is in red sharpie, which kind of looks like blood that will never dry, which I find apt for a story in which the two main characters refer to themselves as Cancer Kids. I finished the book all in one day. I only stopped to go to IKEA with my Grandma and eat and such. It was beautifully tragic, tragically beautiful and had great humor, too. On its cover, Jodi Picoult calls it "electric...filled with staccato bursts of humor and clarity," and she's absolutely right. There were specific lines when I suddenly teared up after feeling fine the line before - but I only used a couple of tissues while reading. When I finished, I literally hugged the book and quietly thanked John Green out loud for giving me reading back. Then I took a couple of small steps toward getting all of my writing back, and had a good little brainstorm. Maybe a light brain shower? (EEEWWW BRAIN RAIN. CONCEIT OFFICIALLY CARRIED TOO FAR.) I'm really glad I found John and his brothers' videos. He would never have been on my radar if not, because he writes YA - very sweet YA that's teaching dem kids good lessons about life. I know it could've been any book that I actually managed to make myself start, but I pre-ordered this one, so it was so much more likely to be that one. Having read the way I used to, I feel a little more like I can be accomplished, achieving me on a regular basis again, and every little bit helps.

Screaming or shouting never works right in my dreams, either. I recently had a nightmare in which for some reason, I was packing a little box of my clothes, and I was forced to leave it around the corner from my house. My mom was convinced I was worried for nothing and it would be fine since nobody comes to our street, but I was scared people would think it was a box of free clothes to take, and I couldn't let them because they were very important to me and I couldn't get new ones. When I got out to it, there were people picking through it, and when I tried to tell them what was going on, they were ignoring me or couldn't hear me, and I couldn't make them listen. There was one particular moment of me grabbing back a deep blue satiny top (I don't own such a top) that literally replayed at least three times, cut in between the rest of my sobbing pleas to leave my clothes alone. I finally got the box back inside and frantically went through it multiple times while being unable to say things as quickly as I wanted to to my mom, because the breath just wouldn't make enough sound, and I gradually realized that at least one item was missing: a dark blue plaid skirt I'd bought with a friend. So...dark blue seems to be a theme along with the clear presentation of self, give-back-control-of-my-life thing with the clothes - didn't notice that until typing it out.

Whoa, RCC, you are skilled at peeling.

Dad: 'So we're going away ----. You can have a friend over if you want. A guy friend, maybe' *looks pointedly at me*

Ah the awkward moment when even your father is so concerned that at 23 you've never mentioned a boy before or had one over, makes it obvious that you can invite men round for sex while they're away.

One of my husband's college friends posted this gem today:

"Today we celebratcelebrate the life's work of a man who helped open doors that allow me to serve you as a U.S. Congressman. But we must never forget, it is only by abandoning the damaging liberal progressive policies and throwing off the shackles of the victim mentality can black Americans finally be 'free at last.' -Rep. Allen West on Martin Luther King

She's white.

I had a home invasion dream once that really freaked me out. It was one of those really weird and impossible, yet extremely vivid ones. .

But the absolute worst part of it, I took a sleeping pill that night that was very much still in effect when I finally manged to force myself to wake from it. I COULD NOT wake up enough to shake it off. I was fighting off the urge to peek around corners for like 10 minutes. I was so groggy from the pill that I probably could have fallen asleep standing up, and I really didn't want to go back to sleep.

to the facebook generation....we do not need to know you "just sneezed lol"
as sneezing an "lol" is impossible and there are better things to do with the time you just spent typing like wiping your nose and taking the dog for a long walk and trying to make real friends......also if you have to post everything you do, try to avoid asking your face book friends why you are still single etc.

My dad was the same with me and I didn't do the deed until I was 23. And it still carries on though not as much.

I'm 30 now and I may no longer hold my v-card but I still haven't had a guy stay over at their house.

I think "novelty" desserts like this are just fun. I'm an adult and I unfortunately still see them as "magic". LOL

Dude!

I like you: you're organized, friendly, articulate, and handsome, plus you have a nice big wedding band. Altogether someone with whom I'd enjoy working.

I might bring cupcakes next time.

I know I'm being nitpicky, but I've seen it so much now that I'm starting to wonder if anyone knows how to spell SoFia Vergara's name anymore. She's ColOmbian. There is no ph combo in Spanish and if there were, it would sound like SoPEEa.
And this came up again because former roommate posted on FB that she's only hot when she's not talking, and someone responded with "that's most women though". Oh hardee har har.

I would like to watch ROOTS. I never saw it.

I have a bit of a collection of old miniseries on DVD on my shelf (Holocaust, The Thorn Birds, Jesus of Nazareth.) I should add ROOTS to it.

There was some talk of Myers Briggs personality types and I'd forgotten what everything but "I" and "E" mean (okay, maybe I never knew most of them), so I looked it up, and then of course I had to play around and find my type. I came up with INFP. Hooray, I has letters! Anyway, while reading the type descriptions, in the part that compared the N/S slot, there was this: "Intuitives are way more likely to be interested in the Myers Briggs personality assessment and other more intellectual topics." Oh sentence, why do I find you so amusing?
