191  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Homemade fudge Question on: January 22, 2007 02:20:00 PM
Hahah Mini! You're so great.

((couldnt exaclty find the one I used. I think I used the one on the can of the milk. ---> It was a great one...Used sweetened condensed milk, didn't use marshmallows or confectioners sugar tho... Foodnetwork.com has GREAT recipes. These recipes are made on the tv shows by Alton Brown <3, Paula Deen...I think Rachel Ray has one too))

Old Fashioned Fudge
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups white sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons butter
In a medium saucepan, stir together the cocoa powder, sugar and salt. Mix in corn syrup, and milk until well blended. Add butter, and heat to between 234 and 240 degrees F (112 to 116 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface. Stir occasionally.
Remove from heat, and beat with a wooden spoon until the mixture is thick and loses its gloss. Stir in vanilla, and pour into a buttered 9x9 inch baking dish. Let cool until set. Cut into small squares to serve.

OMG. That's SO great. My sister's cake this year shall be poop!
She cracks me up. She's 12 and EVERY TIME we make a grocery list, she writes poop on there somewhere. Usually goes, 'milk, bread, eggs POOP, banannas...'
Cracks her up every time.

The BEST oatmeal cookie recipes are on the container that the oatmeal comes in. Get a container of Quaker (I know it costs more, but in my experience, the store brand is powdery and does make a difference in taste and consistency). Just follow the recipe and instead of raisins, add cranberries. Also, I found they taste better if you add cinnamon to taste on TOP of the requirement. Ooh. I learned this part at Christmas, DONT roll them by hand. They get really hard.

Happy baking
196  COOKING / Dessert / Green Tea Cupcakes~? on: January 16, 2007 03:13:46 PM
I'm quite interested in this. Has anyone tried these? I read that you would need matcha powder. We have a bunch of Asian markets in my area so buying the stuff wouldn't be a big deal. HOWEVER... I have 2 big containers of the Lipton Green Tea with honey and lemon powder to use...

::taps chin::

Anyone want to try this with me and share their results?

Green Tea Cupcakes
Makes 12

1 stick butter/ margarine
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/3 cup flour
1/2 cup green tea
~ 1 tablespoon green tea powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon milk

Preheat oven to 350F
Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs. Mix. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and green tea powder together. Mix flour with the butter mixture, alternating with the tea and milk. Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full. Stick into oven and bake 25 minutes

Whipped Cream Topping
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp unflavored gelatin
1 tablespoon water
Powdered sugar
Green tea powder

In saucepan, mix gelatin with water. When gelatin is soft, stir over medium heat until gelatin is dissolved. Let cool, but don't let it harden!

Whip cream with electric mixer until soft peaks form. Pour in gelatin slowly while still whipping it. This stabilizes the cream. Add sugar and tea powder to taste. If you want the color but not all the taste of the tea, add 1 drop green food coloring, 2 drops yellow.

This is the pic of the results online

I love this cake! So awesome. My mom walked through the room and saw the cake and loved it too but she went crazy on ideas. Hers included:

putting toothpicks around the top with floss and have railing

stick half of a mini Oreo on the sides to look like the under deck windows

cut out and mold homemade fudge into a cannon and balls

add pieces of cinnamon bark to the sides for "texture"

frost the top part of a milk carton to have a "captains deck"

get some cheap little pirates, birds and barrels from somewhere like Alan Party Supply

 Cheesy   I loved your cake. You truly inspired my mom. She's in the kitchen bringing out stuff to make the cake.  Roll Eyes
198  COOKING / Dessert / Homemade fudge Question on: January 16, 2007 02:01:34 PM
I made two batches of fudge on Christmas eve.
Ususally in my house, sweets dont last but they were lost in the mix of leftovers and such. They surfaced and know I have my questions.
I have them stored in zip locks in the fridge. How long before they go bad? How would I know.

Thanks for reading

Initial and post responses:

I used the 2 cup method and after I burned myself testing the mixture, I didn't think it would work so I spread it awkwardly on my arm. SURPRISE! It worked great. I used the sugarwhile it was still warm (spread, blow, stir, spread, ow! blow).  I did both of my arms in the kitchen. Didn't take that long.
It cooled down and I worked up the nerve to use it on my lip. Worked amazingly. I even had a little cup of hot water and baby shampoo to throw the strips in after I used them.

Its been a week and my arms and lip are still bare. I worked up the nerve to use it on the bikini area and OH GRACIOUS. Didn't work this time. I put it in the microwave so it'd be a LITTLE bit past what I could stand (figured it'd give me time to take it to my room and strip down). Apply sugar, press muslin strip in the direction of growth...

Pulled out 2 hairs. Tried again. Same thing. My skin was dry and exfoliated.

What could I have done? I didn't refridgerate the mixture thinking that I could gauge the temp better for reheating. Comments are appreciated.
In the meantime, I'm gonna go think happy thoughts

OH! P.S.
I bought a half yard of muslin (MORE than enough) at Joann's for $.66.

Try, try again
