"Kaylee is constipated...sigh". That is what my sweet younger sisters status update on Facebook read the other day after I hacked it. Well, not really hacked. She left her account up and running on my computer. She had to fly into town last minute from Seattle, where she currently lives to attend a funeral while I was away in Arizona. She stayed in my house. She used Facebook on my computer and never logged out. Oops. I'm mean like that sometimes but I can't help myself because I think it's so dang funny! Plus, I'm nice enough to not put anything too incredibly embarrassing. She had it coming anyway. She was a horrific child.
This is me and my punk sister: I look tired and green. I probably am.
Don't worry, I got her back. In that text where I refer to locking her outside naked? Well we lived in an apartment complex that was set up in a circle around a courtyard so everyone could see everyone else. The day I locked Kaylee outside, Nick, her crush for years, was outside playing. He was laughing. It was awesome. She really was a brat, you see. She was supposed to be helping me clean our room and she just refused. Not only refused but sat and taunted me about how she was not helping or going to. This was the only punishment I could think of since I couldn't spank her. And she wasn't really "naked". She had Little Mermaid underwear on. I'm not totally indecent.
I'm not ghetto anymore just in case you were wondering. Neither is Kaylee. But Kaylee does remind me of cherries and in what has to be the worst segway in the history of mankind, I will now talk to you about sticky cherry pudding cake.
This is the stuff of dreams. I had you at the name didn't I? Sticky (always good when describing something sweet) Cherry (cherry desserts are insane) Pudding Cake (needs no explanation). I saw this on the Pioneer Woman website and couldn't stop thinking about it. I might have made it the day I saw it. How could I not? It was very moist, as it should be and very, very sweet in a good way. I topped it with unsweetened whipped cream because between the sweet cake and really sweet, sticky red sauce, it was...well, sweet. The unsweetened cream cut through the sweetness and grounded it. This is really easy to whip up and can easily be doubled for a bigger pan to feed more people. That is, if you don't eat it all yourself. And you could. With this dessert, it's a real danger. (Kaylee, keep reading until the bottom after the recipe)
