BRAD HORN/Nevada Appeal Chocolate Silk Torte, essentially an icebox pie since it depends on refrigeration rather than baking.
"Hot enough for ya?" That was a common summer salutation I remember from growing up in Texas. And 50 years later I still don't get it. In a place where the temperature topped 100 for weeks at a time, and the humidity was usually above 60 percent, "yeah, it's hot enough, thanks for asking."
