Monkey bread is like pudding chomeur in that once you realize how easy it is to make because you have everything you need right fucking there in your pantry, three weeks and four pounds pass by and you see that you have made A LOT of pudding chomeur.

People need to stop trying to make baked avocados happen. Yes, it seems like it should work. Yes, the egg looks pretty against the green avocado. In reality, it's just horrendous. The texture goes weird and the taste just disappears and since the experience of avocado is about 90% texture and 10% flavour it's a terrible idea. If you want a low-carb avocado situation, just eat one with a spoon and some salt and lime OR if you just really want to get some eggs involved, make guacamole egg salad (1/2 guacamole and 1/2 chopped hardboiled eggs by volume, that's it) and have some on a lettuce leaf or better yet forget that low-carb nonsense and have it on rye bread.

This one for chocolate fudge has me obsessed since a friend posted it on facebook - I want to try it (how can it get easier?) but I can't figure out how that could possibly turn into anything that would in any way be considered fudge.

It completely works. I have made it many times. In fact it's my "go-to" for those horrible office "holiday pot luck lunch" things where I really don't want to bring anything. And everyone RAVES. It's like that commercial for Rice Krispies where the mom is in the kitchen alone watching TV or something, then she throws some Rice Krispy Treats together, and tosses a handful of flour into her face before walking out with them, so the family will think she's been slaving away for hours instead of loafing.

A couple tips: When I make it, I toss in a teaspoon of vanilla. I like using dark chocolate chips. You can add nuts if you like. Have a dish lined with buttered wax paper to pour it into when you pull it out of the microwave, then spread it in the dish and chill - without the buttered wax paper it can be hard to get out of the dish.

(I believe Nigella Lawson has also promulgated this recipe somewhere.)

I have a similar condensed milk fudge recipe, handed down from my great-grandmother.

Just Like See's Chocolate Fudge (5 lbs!!)

1 can evap. milk
4 c. sugar
28 regular marshmallows
2 sticks butter
3 pkg. (6oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
dash kosher salt
1 tsp. vanilla
loaf or baking pan, greased (buttered)

Combine milk and sugar in large saucepan, stir well. (Important.) Have burner already heated to high heat, and a burner set to low simmer. Place saucepan on high heat burner and constantly stir until rolling boil. Then move pan to low simmer burner. DO NOT STIR NOW! Simmer on low for 4 min. After 4 min, remove from heat and add rest of ingredients. Stir very gently & slowly, just to melt marshmallows. Pour into loaf or baking pan. Refrigerate 12 hours before cutting.

--
I seriously made 20 pounds of this last Christmas, and it all disappeared. Instead of buttering the pan, I line it with baking parchment, even if there are some wrinkles, and pour the fudge in. When it's chilled, it just taps right out, the parchment peels off, and it's ready to be cut up.

I can't get the fudge link to work on mobile, but I have a dead simple condensed milk recipe for the microwave, which may be the same.

Heat condensed milk in microwave. Add 18 oz of chocolate to 1 can worth. Splash of vanilla. Nuts if you've got em. Stir everything into hot milk. Pour into lined 8x8 dish, or smaller if you want thicker fudge. Cool in fridge. Done.

Now if someone could do a gif on getting a dacquoise right, that'd be awesome.

What could I use instead of apricot preserves for those apple roses? I kind of want to use apple butter to achieve peak apple, but is there a reason that wouldn't work? God, I want to make them immediately, with fleur de sel caramel drizzled on top.
posted by yasaman at 10:31 PM on October 22, 2015


I think that apricot preserves are traditional in pastry for the purposes of sticking things together or for example brushing over cakes before frosting/icing to keep the crumbs from coming loose and ruining everything - mainly because it's almost flavourless. I don't know if apple butter would serve the same purpose here but you could probably use any other kind of jam or preserve if apricot isn't your thing. I'd probably go for elderlfower jam.

I am ok with premade cookie dough/cake mix cakes in kid-feeding situations, because then they can help and kids don't care about the taste as much as the sprinkles or frosting. And I can throw the uneaten stuff away without guilt.

But if I'm actually baking for stuff that tastes good, then only scratch will do.

I seriously don't understand the "macho" attitude that makes people pretend drinks like the margarita don't have simple syrup or other sweetener in them.

Margarita A'la bswinburn (and a whole bunch of other people who like good drinks)

2 3/4 ounce tequila
1 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
1/4 ounce triple sec/orange liquor (Controy preferred, but go crazy).
3/4 ounce simple syrup

Shake over ice.

Pour over crushed ice in a highball glass, salted rim or not as perfected.

In proportions it's the same as a classic daiquiri (1 part sweet, 2 parts tart, 4 parts booze), this is because some recipes just work.
