I like to bake. I also like to cook, but a prefer to bake.
I covet the Food Network and recipe books for new ideas all the time, and on occasion experiment. Sometimes this works wonders. And sometimes, like tonight, it does not.
Dinner was great. Maple BBQ Salmon, asparagus and sweet potatoes fries. Although the fries had a little too much seasoning, all was not lost and we readied ourselves to make dessert.
Well wandering the cookie aisle earlier in the day (and deciding no to buy a whole box of Le Petit Ecoliers) but still wanting something something waffery, we settled on making a dessert with Ladyfingers, pudding (is it just me or whenever you make pudding do you hear Bill Cosby’s voice?) and chocolate moose.
And yes, it was to make. Too easy. Our mistakes came in buying fat free instant pudding and not letting things chill properly. Oh, it was bad. Even the most decorative display could not save it. I should post the pictures. It took me until about an hour ago to fully digest it. I think I’ll settle for arrowroots and tea tomorrow. Or something light, like Angelfood cake. Do you think that would work in cupcake form?
Any cooking blunders or success stories to share?
