Did you have a good weekend?

We had a really low key weekend, no plans (which this introverted homebody LOVES), and plenty of time to get things done.  You know, working on the baby’s nursery set, organizing Legos, building leprechaun traps.

The important things.

In the process of reorganizing Gavin’s 8.2 billion Legos, Nathan decided to rearrange his room.  Without me.  Which is awesome.  I could not have been happier!  And neither could Gavin!  It reminded me of when I was a kid and my room got rearranged.  It felt so exciting.  Like a whole new world!  It made me want to be in my room a ton more.

The rearranging of my room didn’t really happen all that often as a kid, because {cough}, I had a waterbed.  I brought this up to Nathan when we were talking about Gavin’s “new” room and how excited he was about it.

“That’s so weird.  Who thought it was a good idea to get a kid a waterbed?”

I have no idea.  As Nathan said, waterbeds are just one more crazy thing that came out of the 70′s.  You know, those things that you thought were great ideas at the time, but now seem super bizarre?  Images of me with tight rolled white washed jeans, an oversized flannel shirt, and poofed up bangs are suddenly spraining to mind . . .

Thank goodness good food doesn’t ever go out of style.

Like yummy easy fudge!  This fudge tastes just like carrot cake but it is FUDGE.  It’s smooth and sweet and delicious, and I want to eat 7,000 pieces of it.  And, it’s made with real carrots!  Okay, it’s made with carrot baby food . . . which I know sounds odd, but just go with me on it.  You could for sure puree your own carrots and use that, but grabbing a small jar of the baby food for like fifty cents is much easier.

    Baby food into fudge…genius! I loved rearranging my room as a kid, but like you, it didn’t go very far because of that damn waterbed! Thanks for the chuckle over the thought of those things! Pinning this to share at Easter brunch!

    We really hate white chocolate, any other ingredient we could use instead? This looked really good until I saw that.

      I’m not sure what to tell you, Mary. With four cups of white chocolate, it’s going to be hard to find a substitute that will work. You can try milk chocolate, but it’s going to be a very different flavor combination. You could also try candy melts from Wilton. They are vanilla flavored, and you might like them more. I have found, that sometimes with my recipes, people who think they don’t like white chocolate, do enjoy it in a different form.

    I made this fudge over the weekend and it tastes amazing. The only problem I had was that the top of the fudge set but the bottom stayed kind of squidgy. Any ideas why?

    Thanks!

      Hi Jenn! Sorry the recipe didn’t work out quite right for you! Without being there it’s hard to know what went wrong, though I would suspect that your ratio of liquids (the baby food and sweetened condensed milk) to solids (the white chocolate) was a little off. When I was doing recipe development on this, the first batch had the PERFECT taste, but the fudge never set. So I had to lessen the liquids and up the chocolate. And I’m assuming that you let it set in the refrigerator at least four hours? I left mine overnight. I hope that helps!
