First off…let me apologize to all my fellow Sweet Melissa Sunday members and hosts. I’ve failed to participate in the last 4 recipes:
- Orange Blueberry Muffins with Pecan Crumble hosted by Chaya of My Sweet and Savory
- Pumpkin Bread Pudding with Caramel Rum Raisin Sauce hosted by Carmen of Baking is my Zen
- Butterscotch Pralines hosted by Tess of The Cookin’ Chemist
- Coconut Custard Pie hosted by Ruby of I Dream of Baking
Now, the reason I say “maybe I wasn’t meant to be in a cooking club” is because there’s a lot of things I don’t eat…>_<…therefore…don't make…
Muffins – I don't have a good reason for the Blueberry muffins…other than Steven cringed when I told him that they were orange blueberry muffins. He actually requested blueberry muffins, but he didn’t like the orange idea much, and I didn’t want to alter the recipe TOO MUCH (because some of the members mentioned that this is a DENSE muffin). And I would HATE to make them and have them sit because no one wants to eat them. So, I skipped this recipe.
Bread pudding – I’m anti mushy soggy bread, so bread pudding has never appealed to me (although I’ve never had it). So, I skipped this recipe as well.
Pralines – I never really knew what pralines were, other than they’re related to caramel…and I dislike caramel. I really intended to make these, but then after seeing members’ comments, I found out that I need a candy thermometer (which I don’t have), so I skipped this recipe as well.
Coconut Custard Pie – I HATE coconut, I’m not a BIG fan of custard, and I don’t have enough people at home to eat a whole pie without me. So, I skipped this recipe also.
So that’s that…I’ve failed BIG TIME as a member.
Looking at June’s recipes, it looks like I’ll be interested in making 2 out of 4 of those (I’m hosting one of them). To make up for the last 4 weeks, I will be making something Sweet Melissa-related (most likely a rewind) the other two weeks of June.
Once again, I apologize, but stay tuned! 🙂
