ever since julie made her famous toffee crack for meg and i in california, i have been trying to make it.
it has become very clear that God does not want me to make, let alone eat, toffee crack.
1 perfect batch.
1 semi-ok batch.
4 major fails.
i forgot to line the pan.
i had to chisel it off.
toffee crack was being flung all over my kitchen.
i lined the pan, but used reg wax paper instead of the non-stick kind.
apparently i cannot follow directions.
this time i had the right pan liner (parchment paper) but burnt the sugar and butter.
i filled the house with smoke and had to open the windows when it was 20 degrees outside.
it was a nasty, sticky (cold) mess.
perfect toffee crack!
it took four attempts to get it right.
everyone loved it.
i didn't hide the fact that it hated me.
there was a few pieces left to take home...i forgot it in the fridge.
burnt it again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
it's the stove, it's got to be the stove!
i didn't burn it, it did stick a little, it didn't taste like the perfect batch.
but it was edible and everyone ate it and liked it.
it doesn't take a lot to please a group of nascar fans though.
maybe it's time to walk away for a while...
goodbye toffee crack.
maybe someday we could be friends.
i would like that.
