Rita’s favorite desert growing up was Pudim which is the Brazilian version of a custard flan. I reviewed a couple of recipes on-line and gave it a try.
Make caramel by cooking sugar with a little bit of water
be careful it will burn easily
Pour caramel into a bunt pan and coat the sides
Prepare the custard filling
Pour into bunt pan on top of caramel and bake in a water bath
Turn upside down after cooling for several hours in the refrigerator
Nice custard flavor with a sweet caramel topping. 9 out of 10
We have tried the Lemon Pepper mix from House Autry before (see blog here) and found it very good so we decided to give this flavor a try.
Two packets of seasoning per box
We tried with some fresh shrimp
Uneven breading did not adhere well
The breading had a much milder flavor than the Lemon Pepper, it might be better on chicken

November’s selections from the Root Beer of the Month Club.
A nice selection this month with fewer clunkers
Oak Creek Barrel Aged Root Beer
Sioux City Sarsaparilla
We had taste tested this sarsaparilla before see blog here
Old Kes Butterscotch Beer
strong butterscotch flavor, more of a butterscotch soda than a root beer
Snake River Sarsaparilla from Jackson Hole Soda
Lester’s Fixins is bottled by the Rocket Fizz Soda Pop and Candy Shop in Nevada. This is their Bacon Soda that we gave a try.
Alex thought it had a strong bacon flavor and did not like it at all 1 out of 10. I thought it tasted like a normal soda with a mild taste of pork or bacon 3 out of 10.
We keep a variety of Galil‘s ready to eat products on hand when we need a quick side dish to accompany a quick dinner.
The product can be eaten cold right out of the tin but we prefer it heated up. Alex mixes it with his rice. A nice fried flavor with mild spices. 8 out of 10.
