1. When you're at the self-checkout at the supermarket, and you accidentally pick the Spanish option. And then the machine starts speaking to you in Spanish, and you had 3 years of high school Spanish and 1 semester of college Spanish, but apparently you never learned self-checkout Spanish vocabulary. Plus you have your iPod on, so you can't hear very well. So then you have to ask someone working there how to turn off the Spanish. All while a line is forming behind you. (Moral: Stop listening to the iPod all the freaking time and pay attention to what you're doing.)

2. When you're eating dinner with your boyfriend's cousin and husband, and the cousin stops eating his mashed potatoes and pulls something out of his mouth and you realize it's one of your hairs. In the mashed potatoes that you made to go along with the roast pork loin with beer sauce. (Moral: Hairnet. And a phenomenal dessert with no hair ingredients.)

The dessert had raspberries! I'm sure all was forgotten quickly!

Well, actually, we didn't do the raspberry thing. Or the whipped cream. But we had something better with the cakes--cookies and cream ice cream!

Seriously, hot molten chocolate cake + cold ice cream = bliss.

Plus, the cakes are SO EASY!

Did they really take only 10 minutes prep time? I feel like Emeril's recipes are always off in the amount of prep time needed.

Hmm... I'd say they probably take longer than 10 mins, but not more than 20. And since you really want to eat the cakes fresh from the oven, you should bake them about 10 mins before you want to eat dessert. I made the batter in the afternoon and then stuck the ramekins in the fridge.

You should definitely make these--they are fantastic.

Argh... I used to have ramekins, but now I have none.

Dude. Ramekins are so cheap and easy to find. I actually bought mine at that housewares/hardware store in Harvard Square (I forget what it's called, near the Wordsworth books I think?)--so they are available RIGHT NEAR where you live. (Assuming you still live near Harvard Square? Regardless, you can buy ramekins anywhere.)
