Does anyone have a really simple recipe for raisin pudding that a man who can burn water can follow? My mother use to make it when I was a kid and she is 82 now and I don't think she can make it now like she use to. Also my grandfather use to make fudge in pie plates, it was about a half inch think and use to get hard by the next day, any ideas on how to make it come out that way? Like I said I have burnt water hahahahahahaa so if you have any recipes and answer this posting, your not writing to a cook so make each step very clear, thanks and God Bless you
