    OH MY!!!! I'm hungry now...

    Yorkshire pudding is so yummy... do you put gravy on yours?

    My favorites from when I lived in UK are:
    burnt creme... similar to creme brulee but the top is hard, like glass, and the bottom seems creamier than brulee... does that make sense?

    Also love rarebit (sp???). Baked potato w/cheese and chopped leeks w/ham. That's how I had it, anyways...

    Miss fish n' chips served in a newspaper, too.

    By the way, is there anyone from Cincinatti?? I absolutely love your style of chilli... any recipes? Thanks!
    Jim Anchower at your service!

    Taylor ham!!! I think one of the main reasons I could not live anywhere else is that I could never give up tayham. Especially after a night of drinking, nothing's better than eggs over easy with home fries & taylor ham. Goddammit, now I'm hungry agin!

    In Ville Platt,LA they have the Cochon de Lait festival in May, I think.
    That is roasted pig-fabulous! The one time I went, the entire town is let us say-well juiced! People in the parade are falling off their horses!
    There is also a large Lebenon pressence with KIBBIES!! Love them.Egg shapped things ,fried-meat,rice & spices.
    Shedevilang-PLEASE try hot tamales! I love them & the Crawfish ones are great!
    Crawfish Boils-Crawfish,potatoes,corn on cob all boiled, highly seasoned,then you dump the whole thing on a picnic table covered in newspaper!
    New Orleans-Muffalotta sandwiches and you all would love this: Drive thru Daiquiri places! Lovely colors, not too strong to drive with!

You can also get them with different flavors like garlic parmesan and cinnamon sugar (no sauce with those for obvious reasons ).
    Yum. We call them Dough Balls. I love them, but I try to stay away, because there's nothing healthy about deep fried dough covered in cheese sauce.

    I know you Londoners will think this is pitiful, but I have never once had Yorkshire Pudding and long to try it. Don't even know where to go in Texas!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but British puddings are completely different from what Americans think of as pudding, yes? Aren't yours usually savory while ours are sweet?

    Londoners wouldn't care... they're from London - not Yorkshire!!
    You could make them yourself - trust me, it's sooooo worth it!!!

    The following recipe makes around 4 - 6 yorkshire puddings depending upon the size of your yorkshire pudding tin…if you have one. Play around with it if you use a flat baking tin or other oven tray.
    Yorkshire Pudding Ingredients
    2 Eggs
    Half a Cup of Plain Flour
    Half a Cup of Milk
    A Pinch of salt
    1 Mixing Bowl
    Wooden Spoon
    Yorkshire pudding tin (or any small, round flat-ish baking tin)
    Oil / Lard

    Take the flour and add it to the mixing bowl. Then crack both eggs and beat into the milk. Make a well in the centre of the flour and beat in the eggy milk mixture like you are making pancake mix. Use a hand mixer, whisk or fork for the beating ensuring you leave no lumps and beating in as much air as possible.
    You should have a somewhat thick, yellow mixture now. If you prefer your Yorkshire pudding sweeter then you can add currents or raisons to the mixture (I do) as well, mixing these in thoroughly.
    Yorkshire puddings take about 10 - 15 minutes to cook so these should go into the oven towards the end of your Sunday roast cooking time.
    The oven needs to be preheated to around 425-450 Farenheit (220 - 230 Celsius) which is probably will be already if you are roasting potatoes. Add a LITTLE oil, dripping or lard to each individual pudding tray and throw this in the oven for a few seconds to melt it.
    Then, spoon the yorkshire pudding mixture into the preheated tray sections trying not to overfill. Now, put them in the oven and in around 10 - 15 minutes they will be ready.
    Avoid opening the oven door as this will cause them to flop and you want fluffy, nicely risen Yorkshire puddings, not hard flat pancakes.
    Voila! Quick, simple and versatile.

    Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
