I even cooked a recipe for oven-baked parmesan chicken, in which the coating is mostly cheese, with only about 1/3 bread crumbs. Smells pretty good, but haven't dished up yet.

His mom used to make a forgotten cake, which was a meringue that you stuck in a hot oven, then turned the oven off and let it sit there overnight.

It had another benefit in that I was interested to read the book of Luke in the Bible again, so was reading it during church, with the commentary, so church was over before I knew it.
