Easy Orange Fudge #TheLeftoversClub

Easy Orange Fudge #TheLeftoversClub

This month for the #TheLeftoversClub I want it to send and make something different and change the theme a little, no cookies this month, so for my friend Faye Rodriguez I make delicious and super easy Orange Fudge.

Ok, this fudge is very different to any others you have tried, and is very traditional in my country, yes in Costa Rica we make all different kinds of fudge and is call Cajetas. We have so many different flavors like, coconut, peanuts, carrots, etc. But this orange fudge is so fresh and delicious, the flavor of the orange zest cuts the sweets of the sugar and you end up with the perfect dessert after a good lunch or dinner.

I just hope she likes it as much as we love it. And let me know how many pieces of this fudge will you eat.

Orange Glace Donuts #FoodieExtravaganza

Orange Glace Donuts #FoodieExtravaganza

Ok, let me start by saying that I love donuts! Thank you, I needed that, I’m so happy to participate this month in the donut event for #FoodieExtravaganza and I’m sure you are too.

This is a great theme to have especially this month for me living in Southen California, the weather has been wonderful not too hot and perfect for baking, wich makes me so happy because I love to bake during the summer time. I know most of the donuts are fried but some people love to bake them and let me tell you those donuts are pretty delicious too.

Now let me talk about my donuts, I know that the title said orange glace, but, I decide also  to present them in a different way and add the orange zest to the dough, this addition will make the donuts tastier and with a delicious citrus flavor. I’m sure you will love the flavor and this is a great opportunity to have some fun in the kitchen with your kids and let them decorate and cover the donuts and those little fingers in gooey goodies.

Orange Glaze Donuts #chocolatetopping

July has arrived and that means it’s time for another #FoodieExtravaganza! Each month we take turns hosting and selecting a foodie holiday associated with that month. Somehow in all the planning July was overlooked so in a mad dash in the second half of June, Lauren of From Gate to Plate told us to celebrate the doughnut. If anyone is keeping score, National Doughnut Day is actually the first Friday in June, but none of us are complaining to be celebrating one of America’s favorite breakfast treats today. July is National Culinary Arts month so let’s just go with that. Also in July: Fried Chicken Day (today, the 6th), Blueberry Muffin Day (the 11th), and Junk Food Day (the 21st).

SLEEPLESS BY A MERINGUE

I am not a trained pastry chef but I love making desserts.
These delicious meringues have been my long sleepless, for a long tim, they never feel the way I wanted to.
One day I realized that the weather and the work area are very important when making meringue, if the day is warm and the utensils are very clean they come out perfect .
With lots of love and pride I want to share this recipe, which I can now say, these are the most delicious meringues I’ve ever eaten.

4 egg whites
1 / 4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 1 / 4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
pinch of salt
orange food coloring

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F (110 degrees C).
Place the whites in the bowl of a blender, add cream of tartar, salt and beat at high speed to soft peaks form.
Add the sugar gradually beat for 10 minutes.
The meringue should be shiny and with firm peaks.
Reduce speed and add vanilla and a splash of food coloring.
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and with two spoons or pipping bag make the design you like the most.
Bake for one hour or until meringues are firm.
Do not worry if the center feels chewy.

This recipe makes 30 meringues.

Enjoy, they are delicious.
