Reviewed Peanut Butter Fudge
"Good simple recipe but I'm wondering why the extra 2 minutes, next time I won't microwave it a second time thinking it might have a softer texture. I used Cookie butter from Trader Joe's instead of peanut butter and because I kept the vanilla in the recipe as called for, it turned out a bit sweet but that is on me - if it was peanut butter it wou"
I work at home and you would think with the amount of time I spend in front of cooking and food-related shows, I would be able to conjure up better meals than what I actually do. I get truely inspired by these shows and yet when I step into the kitchen, the inspiration fizzles from the lack of counter space and an oven that I would absolutely like to heave out a window ;)
And yet, when I get a strong enough itch because of something I've seen, I go for it anyway.
Usually surprising myself with the results.
Savory and decadent are my most favorites.
Rich in taste and appearance. I've seen lots of these television personalities take something simple and downright tasty and transform the simplicity into 5 star status and I find that most interesting.
I was watching Aaron Sanchez one night on an episode of "Best thing I ever ate" and he was raving over these "bannana fritters" that were being made in an EAbelskiver pan. (you think having a Scandinavian background I'd have heard of one of these things)
So I go online and get one of these pans (new, for a steal from a woman right here in NC through and auction site)
I then researched many recipes, tweak one to my specific likings and add my spices, fill with freshly picked and chopped pecans from the trees right here in the yard and then plate them drizzled with carmel sauce and side with whipped heavy cream (also tweaked)
And this is what I came up with !
So to Aaron Sanchez and all the personalities of shows on the Food Network I say:
THANKS FOR THE INSPIRATION! keep it coming folks!
