I have a list of things I want to do. One of them is to cook every recipe in a cookbook so I’m working my way through Rick Bayless’ Everyday Mexican. I’ve eaten a lot of good stuff. This series is the record of those adventures.
Remember how I picked this cookbook specifically because it lacked desserts? Well, yeah that's because I love dessert and I have no self-control. This rule of thumb applied and then some with this dish. I have to be honest and confess that I barely remember how I made it. I do recall that there was apple, butter and sliced almonds involved. It was another one of those lovely skillet based desserts that come out of the oven all bubbly and appealing and taste better for breakfast the next day.... I assume, because there was none left over. We ate it like greedy little apple monkeys at the first serving. Oops.
