Not only is this the easiest fudge to make, it's also the best tasting...well, at least in my opinion. The problem with a lot of fudge recipes is the need for cooking on the stove and a candy thermometer. This is so easy you can have the kids help you make it. UPDATE: I reduced the amount of salt listed due to reviewer feed back and listed it as optional.
Although this is a messy project, kids love it. I used to make this for families when I was still babysitting, and always got requests for it from puzzled parents calling to ask me to sit for them again. It's a great way to keep kids occupied while having a little fun in the kitchen.
The secret to the best tasting chocolate chip cookies is to use only brown sugar. It makes them chewier and stay more "fresh baked" tasting. Try them for yourself, you won't go back to ordinary cookies ever again!
Flank steak is one of my favorite cuts of beef. It takes on the flavor of marinates well and has a great texture. I like to serve this with steamed rice and sugar snap peas. Times do not inclued the stay in the refrigerator.
These little mini cupcakes are a favorite of my twins, it makes a small batch and you can flavor them any way you want. I like using the extracts at a local baking supply store that I found but vanilla and citrus zest work equally well. The icing recipe provided is good but buttercream frosting works great too.
I made MustangMom's Delicious Zucchini Casserole the other night for dinner and LOVED it, especially the sauce that goes on the zucchini. I was thinking how it would make a wonderful base for a hot artichoke and spinach dip. Here is the dip with my alterations. Oh, and if you haven't tried her casserole, it's a must!
