Bailey's Sugar Fudge

Sucre a la Creme, Sugar Fudge, or Penuche is similar to fudge but has a distinctly different grainy and crumbly texture.

My Mom has been visiting since Wednesday and I am in heaven. I love having her here! Not only is it nice to have someone to chat with,  and it's great to have another adult that appreciates the new recipes I'm always trying. Rather than hearing negative comments and refusals to eat dinner, Mom is always happy to dig into anything I create. We've been brainstorming recipes for the past few days and late one night, I mentioned making Sucre a la Creme. Mom learned how to make sugar fudge from my grandma and I remember always hoping that there would be some fudge when we would go visit my mom's parents. I've never really learned how to make this, so while Mom was making this, I watched attentively. You kinda have to, since this is more of a technique, rather than a recipe.

Late one night, I also suggested we add some Baileys to the fudge. I was looking for a fun St. Patrick's Day recipe and thought fudge laced with Irish cream whiskey would fit the bill. Plus I knew that it would go splendidly with the brown sugar. This isn't your typical fudge. While nice and sweet, the texture is more grainy and the fudge is more crumbly than traditional fudge. The Baileys Irish Cream gave the fudge a wonderful pop of flavour.

Sucre a la Creme- Baileys Sugar Fudge

1 C brown sugar, packed
1 C white sugar
1/2 C Baileys Irish Cream whiskey
1/2 C 35% whipping cream
1 Tbs butter

Line an 8-inch square baking dish with parchment paper.

In a medium sauce pot, combine the sugars, Baileys and cream; whisk together. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook, stirring constantly, until softball stage (112-116 degrees on candy thermometer).

Remove from heat and stir to help the mixture cool down; about 3 minutes. Add the butter and stir vigorously until the mixture takes on a thick like gravy consistency.

Pour into prepared pan and let cool 2 hrs. Cut into small squares and enjoy!

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.

When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??

This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!

2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
