Cry Babies

Nobody likes a cry baby, especially when you are pwning them in PVP or first-person shooters. Poor sports are looked down upon in any gaming arena. Who wants to listen to somebody complain about how bad they suck? I know I don't. As I tell my kids, "I don't speak whine, if you want to talk to me, talk normally." There is no sound in the world that drives me crazier than the sound of somebody whining. All of my senses shut them out. Whether it is the /ignore command so that I don't have to be bombarded with their adolescence on my screen, or simply toning them out so I no longer register the sound of their voice.  

I don't like ignoring people, but I don't like stupid people either. If you aren't intelligent enough to figure out how to solve the problem on your own, please go find someone who cares, 'cause I sure don't. 

I eat Cry Babies for breakfast. Come whine to me and you will surely get your head bitten off, or possibly cut off and served on a silver platter; and no, you don't get to choose which.


Cry Babies
4 Servings | Total Time: 30 Minutes | Apprentice

  • 3 large Eggs (at room temperature)
  • 2/3 cup Whole Milk (at room temperature)
  • 2/3 cup Flour
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 cup Butter, in pieces
  • 1/3 cup Sugar
  • 2 tsp grated Lemon zest
  • Kitchen Weapon: 10" Cast Iron Skillet
  • Kitchen Weapon: Electric Mixer
    Craft: Set oven to 450° and place skillet on the middle rack of the oven. Beat eggs with an electric mixer until pale and frothy. Then beat in milk, flour, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt, about 1 minute. Continue until smooth. Add butter to hot skillet and swirl around to coat evenly. Add batter and immediately return skillet to the oven. Bake about 18-25 minutes or until puffy and golden.

    While the Cry Baby is cooking, mix together the sugar and lemon zest. Use this to top the Cry Baby and serve immediately out of the oven.

    Strategies: You can use any kind of milk you want, but the higher the milk-fat, the better the Cry Baby will puff up. You could even use Half and Half cream if you have some sitting around.  These are similar to crepes and can be topped with any of your favorite syrups or fruits. You can even make it into a dessert with some ice cream.

    • Eggs $0.98
    • Lemon $0.50
    Total Cost: $1.47
    Cost Per Serving: $0.37
    *This meal contains staple items such as spices that you may or may not have in your pantry so your cost may vary.
