Sometimes I find it hard for me to dream about things to come. I find it hard to put my hopes and desires into words. Recently, I have been encouraged to “dream again.” I have been asked what I would do if I could do anything without failing. That question should be a wide open door to everything for us. Unfortunately, that very question seems to only tighten the knot that forms in my stomach when I think about my future. For me right now, my hopes and dreams seemed limited to small blocks of time and day-long baking projects.
Although I may not feel like dreaming about my own life, I found some of my dreams coming true this week. When I first brought the Baking From My Home to Yours Cookbook home, the recipe that continually jumped off the page at me was a delicious looking chocolate layer topped with peanut caramel goo. Finally, the group baked this in our very own homes to the delight of anyone nearby.
Overall, I enjoyed this dessert. I would make it again. I may opt to use a different chocolate cake recipe, one that I find to be slightly more moist. And I may get clearer directions on the caramel temperature so that I am not guessing at the length of boiling time (obviously longer than the suggested 5 to 10 minutes). Nevertheless, wonderful idea and delicious dessert!
