Milk Chocolate Caramel Fudge

Milk Chocolate Caramel Fudge

This is, hands down, the best fudge you will ever eat, and believe me, I've eaten a lot of fudge.  I love it!  But again, I love it if it's delicious.  I don't want it if it's mediocre.  You know what I mean.  When it's waxy or dry or chewy.  Fudge isn't supposed to be chewy.  It's supposed to be creamy and melt in your mouth.   That's what this recipe is - melt in your mouth! I'm not sure where this recipe came from.  I think my brother gave it to me about 30 years ago and I have been making … [Continue reading...]

Pumpkin and Black Bean Soup

Black Bean and Pumpkin Soup

When you think of soup does the word pumpkin ever come to mind?  For me?  No way.  I would never have thought to put pumpkin in soup.  I guess it was a good thing I didn’t know what was in it when my Mom had me try this soup years ago.  I loved it.  I […]
