Last night I made two holiday treats which were failures – buttermilk fudge and chocolate pretzel-almond-cranberry chews. The fudge is too soft and the chews are ugly. Neither tastes bad, but I can’t give batches away, which was my plan. I really dislike failure in the kitchen! So, it’s back to the start for me. I’m going to make fail proof fudge with marshmallow cream and coconut meringues. If either turns out well, you’ll see a post here with the recipe/s and picture/s.
“Back to the start” reminded me of the video below, which I first saw in the neighborhood movie house. I love Willie Nelson’s cover of the Coldplay song The Scientist. The lyrics are awesome and work well with the video.
