Bon Appetite Hon

Another cool thing to come out of Bawlmore is the famous "Baltimore Bomb Pie" featured on the Food Networks" "The Best Thing I Ever Ate."   Also favored by Charm City Cakes Duff Goldman, the pie has become somewhat famous.  You can buy it online at Dangerously Delicious Pies, or try to make one yourself.  In searching for a recipe, I came across to great sites that come very close to mimicking it.  Check out My Man's Belly and Chris and Ashton's Blog.  below is the recipe from My Man's Belly.

PS -- Don't forget to wear your favorite apron!
Use your own favorite Pie Crust recipe, or if you hate rolling out pastry (like me) ... Just go buy one of those Pet Ritz froze pie shells  : )  What's important here is the filling : )

So Sweet ... Marilyn Monore Portrait Made Out of Candy

Candy is dandy when it looks like this.  This Marilyn Monroe portrait is too sweet to miss. The portrait made entirely of candy can soon be admired in the lobby of the “Ripley’s Believe It or Not!” Odditorium in Orlando.
Enrique Ramos of Mexico City, is the candy artist who has made similar sugary portraits of Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson for other Ripley’s outlets around the country.
The tasty portraits are made out of candy hearts, after dinner mints, licorice, Fruit by the Foot, and more.
