Kobe was a beloved husband and father.  Let’s continue to honor him through the charities he supported.  Here is a partial list 1. The National Museum of African American History and Culture; 2.  Make a Wish Foundation; 3.  After School All-Stars, go on-line, you will find many more. Kobe Bryant was a good man.

I’m a Laker fan. My heart, prayers, and condolences go out to the entire Bryant family and all the others that were lost in that crash. I am a foodie; my contribution to Kobe is my traditional custard/flan recipe.  When I was looking up just little things about Kobe, it said he liked Flan. This recipe is in remembrance of the Black Mamba, the Lakers shooting guard. Bryant was an 18-time All-Star, 15-time member of the All-NBA Team, 12-time member of the All-Defensive Team, and 2008 NBA Most Valuable Player; he aspired to and obtained these goals in 20-seasons.  Kobe was a beloved husband and father.  Kobe Bryant was a good man.


1 1/2 cups sugar, 6 eggs, 1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk, 2 (13 oz. cans evaporated milk, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon ground mace, 1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.  Get out the blender add the eggs blend the eggs until they start to become frothy.  Slowly add sugar, mix well set aside.  Get out a large aluminum saucepan, add the milk bring up to a medium heat around 325 degrees.  When the milk starts to form bubbles abound the edges of the saucepan, add the egg mixture.  Remove the saucepan from the heat beat this mixture like you are trying to win the game.  This step should take about 5-minutes, now stir in the vanilla.  Pour into a 9-inch glass pie plate.  Put the pie plate into a larger pan with about 1- 1/2 inches of water, which is called a water bath, make sure the pie plate is not floating. Bake for about 40-45 minutes or until the custard sets. The custard is set when you can insert a butter knife to the center of the custard, and it moves out clean.  Remove from the oven and sprinkle mace on top.
