The irony of it all

Posted by andrea in: Recipes and Food

I made fudge last night, from a “no-fail” recipe. Ha. Well, I failed. For some reason it never set. Any ideas why? Now I have a 8 x 8 dish of “fudge” that’s the consistency of peanut butter. I just ate a big spoonful. Ok, TWO spoonfuls. And then made myself a cup of coffee sweetened with Splenda.

*sigh*

I have to try that recipe! I’m sure it’s just as good eating it with a spoon.

I have also had fudge not set properly. The first time it worked but the second time, fudge sauce.
But hey, you can always use some fudge sauce.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
