Watch the video to see how my grandma used to make fudge and how my mom makes it to this day. Once you learn to recognize when the sugar has reached the soft ball temperature, fudge is pretty easy to make. And it takes so few ingredients!
I love to read old cookbooks and magazines for old tips and cooking tricks. Looking through a 1990 edition of Better Homes and Gardens, I discovered a recipe for Irish Cream Fudge featuring mashed potatoes. The function of the mashed potatoes is to give the fudge a creamy texture. How intriguing!
I love the beginning of fall when bright, sunny days meet the cooling temperatures of the upcoming winter. Sunshine and sweaters is what this salad is all about.
In this salad, fresh citrus, melon, and avocado bring out the lighter side of pumpkin.
