Today is an exciting day for me.
Many of you may have seen the fun series going on over at Life In Grace: Edie's been doing an exciting series called "12 Days of Handmade Christmas." She started on November 1, and she's featured a different craft each day. Such good ideas! If you haven't seen this series, go here to start at Day 1 and work your way through.
Well, today is my day to guest post for Edie! And my Christmas craft is one that anyone can try: homemade fudge. Not just any fudge, though--my fudge recipe originated with Mamie Eisenhower. It's from an old Kansas cookbook, and the recipe title proudly adds a subtitle: "Mamie made this fudge to woo Ike." I like Ike, and I like fudge, but I don't like candy thermometers and confusing directions. Well, this recipe is not confusing. It's simple to follow, and it produces the most delicious, creamy, wonderful fudge. I've made it every year for the past 20 years, and I'll keep making it as long as I'm able to hold a spoon.
Now go on over to Edie's and read the post for yourself. Print that recipe and give it a try. You'll love it. Promise.
