castle - good read

In fannish news...

I was very surprised (and very flattered) to be asked to be featured in the latest online magazine issue of Heat News. The English version of it is now out. My interview starts on page 23 in case anyone is curious. *L* although I cant promises it says anything that anyone who has been on my Flist as long as most of you have doesn't already know about me.. except maybe my real name ;)

on the third day of Christmas...

For the third day I am sharing my favorite fudge recipe (some of you have seen this before, but I am posting again) My mom used to make this at Christmas time for me and my brother when we were kids and now I make it for my kids... except I use the microwave version because it is sooo much easier. *G*  This is seriously the easiest recipe for fudge, but for some reason I only make it during the holidays... somehow I think it just tastes better (or maybe its just more nostalgic) that way.

Here is the recipe if anyone wants it...


3/4 c. butter
3 c. sugar
1 (5 fluid oz.) evaporated milk
1 (12 oz.) pkg. semi-sweet chocolate pieces
1 (7 oz.) jar marshmallow creme
1 tsp. vanilla
crushed candy cane (optional, but highly recommended ;)
Microwave butter in 4 quart bowl on high 1 minute or until melted. Add sugar and milk. Mix well.
Microwave on high 10 minutes, stirring after each 2 minutes.
Stir in chocolate pieces until melted. Add marshmallow creme, vanilla and crushed candy cane. Mix well. Pour into buttered 9x13 inch pan. Cool at room temperature. Cut into squares. Makes 3 pounds.
