This summer the kids and I have been having some fun in the kitchen! Noa has become the master of scrambled eggs in the house and Isca knows the names of all the pantry and fridge ingredients and where all the cooking utensils are located so she makes a great assistant. Hollis stirs and is a professional step-stool dragger and shredded cheese thief.

Last week we held a family cooking competition similar to the tv show Chopped. I’m excited to share the photos and maybe some video, too!

This week we tackled homemade chocolate pudding. I was working on a guest post for My Mommy Style that will be published later this week and I needed pudding for it. I was NOT about to haul 3 kids to the store for 1 thing so we whipped up a batch of homemade pudding in no time! Consider this your warning: This pudding is really rich so go easy on the portions!

adapted from Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding

1/3 c. Brown Sugar
1/4 c. Corn Starch
3 heaping TBSP. Cocoa Powder
1/8 tsp. Salt
2 3/4 c. Milk
1 TBSP. Butter
1 tsp. Vanilla

In a large saucepan combine brown sugar through salt. Mix it really well and make sure there are no clumps or lumps. I just used my fingers to break things up!

Whisk in milk and heat over medium until it boils. Once it starts to boil – whisk continuously for 2-3 minutes until the pudding coats the back of a spoon.

Remove from heat, stir in butter and vanilla and let cool a bit before chilling. Before putting it in the fridge, place plastic wrap directly on the surface of the pudding, covering all of it. This will keep it from forming that strange, gelatinous “skin” on top. Gag.

We had some after dinner and Luke told us his grandma used to make it and while it was still hot she would serve it up with a scoop of vanilla ice cream right in the center of each bowl. Um, thanks for telling us when we have NO ice cream, man!

Make sure you have vanilla ice cream on hand before making this…
