Well, Thursday night was another interesting one at my house. I attempted to make a dessert for a party on Friday night. Now for those of you who read faithfully each week, you understand the problems I have in the kitchen.
The food sees me coming, and that’s it – it’s over. No matter how well I read a recipe, how carefully I measure, or what ingredients I use, it just doesn’t seem to work out for me. But hell, it’s fun to take a stab at it now and then, because the law of averages guarantees that once in awhile, things will just work out.
I had an idea to make a dessert that my daughter made at Christmas time for my guests, but found I didn’t actually have that recipe. As I perused my green binder that contains culinary successes (yes, there surprisingly have been more than a few), I found another recipe that I thought could work just as well.
Actually, there were three recipes for the same dessert.
