It seems odd to say it, but as much as I wanted to do a whole second post with pictures from the last Jurassic Lounge when I went back over them, they didn’t excite me.
Well, this one did. His names is Oscar.
And maybe this one. I love the colour!
And well … this is amusing. Museum staff obviously have a sense of humour!
PUKECKO! (and echidna butt)
So instead of posting more pictures from that night, I thought I’d just show you how I re-engineered that fudge recipe to be white chocolate and cranberries.
Basically I did everything the same, but substituted white chocolate for dark, and switched out the coffee for a handful of chopped up dried cranberries. Looks good, tastes like it needed to be cooked a little longer.
I think this is my new go-to/all-purpose fudge recipe! It’s so easily modifiable!
Also, have some proof that I do learn from my mistakes!
I got it into my head to cook something new and exciting the other night. I made fudge first because … I felt like it. I used this espresso fudge recipe because it looked fairly fool proof.
It was. So much so that I managed to forget to take any photos of me making it.
Finished, it looks like this
and it tastes delicious!
I had also been staring at this spinach bacon and brie mini frittata recipe for a few days and thought it would be a delicious addition to my work day lunch box. Full of protein to get me through the afternoon.
So I gathered together my ingredients
Chopped everything up
And began putting it together
I was impressed with just how quickly and simply it all went together! Though those of you with much experience cooking will spot my fatal flaw in this picture.
Once cooked, they looked and tasted delicious! I have plans to make them in future substituting the bacon for smoked salmon, which I think will also work remarkably well.
So did you spot my flaw?
That’s right. Baking powder. Baking powder was my undoing. You see (for those that don’t know), I filled each compartment to the top and had 3 empty. But baking powder makes things rise.
Yes. I spent the next day cleaning the oven.
Rookie mistake *shakes head*
