I mentioned earlier this month that we were joining the book tour for Bonnie R. Paulson's latest book--Dictating Death. I have not had time to read it yet; but, it is creeping closer to the top of my reading list! Rather than simply interviewing the author--we actually got to do a little cooking with Bonnie R. Paulson--and she brought along a special guest from Dictating Death. We hope you enjoy meeting Bonnie R. Paulson--and Dictating Death Character, Maria--and maybe even their recipe too! Be sure to check out the details of this book and enter the giveaway from the author at the end of this post as well!
Cooking with Bonnie R. Paulson and Her Special Guest
Maria: Anything edible – even chalk.
Bonnie: Well, hello again, Maria. Here to ruin another fun activity, I see.
Maria: Nope, just want to make sure you’re not scamming these awesome people.
Bonnie: Psh. You couldn’t care less about any of them.
Maria: That’s not true. I’m very curious about their occupations. Are any of them doctors? What’s their specialty?
Bonnie: (rolling eyes) Well, they’re not going to answer. Be quiet so we can talk Eclairs.
Maria: Why don’t you tell them what the real name of the dish is? (snickering)
Bonnie: (mumbling) Dual Personality Eclairs.
Maria: (laughing out loud) Exactly.
Bonnie: Be quiet. I’m doing this. Okay, so, if you’re ready, the ingredients are graham crackers – two packages from a box – one large box of instant vanilla pudding, one large container of whipped topping, one container of chocolate frosting. For the pudding, you’ll need the milk the directions on the box requires.
Maria: I’m so bored. (yawn) Say, does this one have strawberries?
Bonnie: Yes and no.
Maria: Whatever. You’re dull. I’m taking over.
Bonnie: No, wait, I —
Maria: Enough. Okay, Bonnie’s busy. Here’s what you do. Whip together the pudding and the milk then add the thawed whipped topping to the same bowl. Not hard, right? Then start layering like a lasagna. One layer of graham crackers in a 9 by 13 pan, cover with a healthy layer of the mix, add strawberries or bananas or whatever you want. Then repeat. You’ll get about three layers like this. Top with last layer of crackers. Melt the frosting in the microwave and smooth over the top so it’s completely covered. Chill.
Maria: Nobody cares. Samantha doesn’t even give me this much trouble. (sigh) Thanks again for having us, I guess. If you like the recipe, it’s mine. If it sucks, Bonnie came up with it.
Bonnie: Ugh, thank you for having us again. I’m sorry we were so rudely interrupted. This is a yummy dessert. Make sure to serve with milk. It’s rich and light at the same time. That’s why it’s Dual Personality.
Have you ever tried this recipe or something similar? Any tips on making it better? OR do you have a fun recipe you can share? We’d love to try it.
