Christmas Miracle Fudge

It's miraculous that I even got a resemblance of fudge.
It is the old fashion kind that you have to stir at the end to loose the gloss.

First I burned the first batch, so I had to start over.

Second, it did not want to cook to the soft ball stage, maybe my candy thermometer is broken. So I took a chance after cooking for while, and let it cool for the final mixing stage.

Then I mixed for a really long time, remained glossy, so I gave up on it for while.

Then I thought I would reheat it, a layer of fudge just got hard on the bottom of the pan. 

I finally gave up, salvaged what I could, put it in the fridge, and went to bed.

In the morning, I was surprised to find that my fudge actually looked and tasted like fudge.
It's a miracle!

Minnesota Wild Rice Griddle Cakes

I got a package in the mail the other day addressed to this blog. I was confused because I wasn't expecting anything. Turns out I got four boxes of Minnesota Wild Rice Griddle Cakes.
Then I remembered that I husband was in Hy-Vee at the time they were sampling this product. He told the vendor that he would help promote the product.

 So about a month ago he did make up some of the griddle cakes for breakfast. I liked it with the jam on top.
Topped with strawberry jam
I am not sure what my husband plans to do with four boxes of the griddle cakes, I do hope we get to keep at least one.

So far you can only buy them at Hy-Vee stores in the mid-west or Chef Central in New Jersey.

Pot Stickers

So I thought I would try to make pot stickers again. Last time they fell apart. This time around, it turned out a little better. The dough was a little thick and chewy, but overall still pretty good.
