If you enjoy the the wind on your face and open sky before you, you have come to a good place to find the romance and flavor of the West.

Kiss Pudding

I enjoy trying the old recipes. Of course, I have it easy. With an electric stove and oven, there is no need to go chop the wood, fire up the stove on a hot day, and hope that it will keep an even heat. Where the recipe states to add flavor, I add a little vanilla. If anyone has other flavors to suggest that they might have had in the 1880s, I would like to hear about it. If you attempt this recipe, please let me know how it came out for you.

Kiss Pudding
One quart of milk, four tablespoons of cornstarch, mixed with a little cold milk, and five eggs.
Beat the yolks of the eggs with one cup of sugar and the corn starch. Put in the milk and let it boil until it thickens, stirring all the time.
Beat the whites: add a cup of sugar, flavor and spread over the pudding. Brown in the oven.
(From an 1883 Texas Cookbook)

the flavor for the topping is usually a single square of unsweetened bakers chocolate - a totally great dessert!

I love the wind in my face, the open sky before me, the romance and flavor of the West, but, most of all, our loving and living God, who created it all. I love how He works out His plans in the realm of human events, which is His Story. I have been blessed with a gift: a compulsion to write Historical and present-day novels set in the American West that demonstrate His power to transform ordinary people into true heroes and heroines. I am just a scribe really. I find the joy of participating in the creation of inspirational fiction indescribable. May our Lord Jesus Christ receive all of the credit and be glorified.
