I only gave a short review of this on Goodreads
but I have to say that the only things needing said about this book is that it is on my favorite shelf and You should read it.
Spanish Hot Chocolate
Begin with a healthy dose of remorse. Add a quarter cup of unsweetened cocoa and half a cup of white sugar in a saucepan. In a measuring cup stir a tablespoon of cornstarch into a quarter cup of cold water Until it dissolves with your fantasies of a perfect vacation in Madrid. Pour it into the saucepan and stir until the mixture is smooth
Warm over medium heat while warming two cups of milk in the microwave. Slowly pour milk in, allowing yourself to reflect on dead dictators as you gently whisk out lumps. Allow to simmer for awhile until it coats your spoon like pudding. Maybe 10 -20 min as you stir. Serve with humility and a tiny silver spoon
Yesterday, I tried a quick and easy idea, and it wasn't as good but was still very good and was ready in less than 4 minutes. I filled my mug 2/3 with cold milk, and took my spoon and loaded it full of cornstarch and dissolved it in the cold milk. Then I microwaved that for 2 minutes, and it came out thick and glossy like meringue. I just stirred in a packet of hot cocoa mix and it was ready to drink
