I am Jane

This is my journal. Not The Ladies Home Journal or The Diary of Anne Frank, but something in between. Not that I'm stuck in an attic with people trying to kill me, but you know, personal. To start, I love to cook. Unfortunately, for someone who has been baking for the last 30 year I make a lot of mistakes. Today I made fudge. This fudge was boiling merrily away on the stove approaching soft ball stage when I realized I had doubled the butter. Oh well, butter only makes things better. After sopping all the excess off the top of the fudge (it only took 7 paper towels) it was quite edible. Yum, fudge.


  1. Just goes to show, you can never have too much butter.

  2. Hi Jane

    What a lovely start to your blog! I can't wait to read more. Your fudge sounds ever so tasty! Glad you enjoyed it because that's how it should be.


    "Butter only makes things better"

    How true! I only started baking in earnest last year and being brainwashed into thinking healthy, I skimped on butter whenever I could. The results were never quite right.

    I know better now.

    Take care

  3. Mmm. fudge. That sounds so good right now.

  4. Kitty: Absolutly true. If you want to be healthier, give up something else, not butter.

    Kate: Mid January is the best time for fudge because all the Christmas sweets are gone but your body is still wants more.
