The Kitchen Reader: Memories Around the Holiday Table

December 24, 2010

The Kitchen Reader group is taking the month off from reading and instead posting a memorable holiday recipe. I decided to pick up where I left off last year and continue my quest to make fudge like my grandma’s.

Friends, the quest is over.

Fudge Fail

Over because I am done trying to make fudge. Some memories are better left alone.

Happy holidays!


  1. So funny! It’s hard to recreate those perfect tastes from the past, isn’t it?
    Wishing you and your loved ones much happiness over the holidays.

  2. Jill-It’s SOOOO difficult not to be able to recreate something from our past-especially something like fudge. I’m so sorry that yours didn’t turn out better-I know how disheartening that can be.

    Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Joyous New Year!

  3. Merry Xmas Jill!!!! It was worth a shot.

  4. Hope you had a wonderful holiday with your family Jill! Bummer about the fudge – so tough to recreate our favorites isn’t it?

  5. OH! I’m sorry it didn’t work out. I would love to cook like my Memere and recreate her delicious food, but I know for me, it’s never going to happen. Hope you had a great holiday.

  6. This made me laugh! Some recipes are best left as memories.

    Merry Christmas!

  7. Too funny! Don’t give up though! Maybe we can attempt fudge together.

  8. Nooo! Grandmas have a way with these things. Don’t give up!

    BTW, did I spy a CIA cutting board on your crumb cake post? Did you do a boot camp? I did a pastry boot camp in Jan 2007 and it was the best, most tiring vacation I’ve ever had. I’m going to do a search on your blog and see if you wrote anything about attending one.
