Okay so let me be honest...I have never baked, cooked or done anything with Butter! At times I will have it on a piece of bread but that is the extent of it! I grew up on margarine...I know, I know...that is sinful! So my challenge this month for the Allrecipes
Ambassadors was to Go Bold with Butter! Oh man...really! is what crossed my mind. But then I thought how bad can it be...easy breezy lemon squeezy, right? NOT!!! So today I decided to make my first recipe...Dark Chocolate - Sour Cherry Brownies! They came
together fairly easily. I used dried cherries- not sour! I couldn't find any chocolate that said bittersweet so I used unsweetened - isn't that the same? I allowed them to cool, cut them and took my picture. Now comes the worst part...I took a bite...not sure
it was the butter or what...but they were horrible. They were so dry and of course I had taken a huge bite. I found myself pushing past my son almost knocking him down to get to the fridge for a tall glass of milk all the while thinking it would be better
once I had a drink. No such luck! My son who also had decided to try them tried to steal my milk, no way was I letting that happen! Get your own I told him as I guzzled my cupful! I did eat the whole brownie thinking that it would get better...oh well trash
can here they come!
Tonight I decided to give another Butter recipe ago! It is Smoked Spicy Buttered Popcorn! Who can go wrong with that, right? I love microwave movie theater butter popcorn so I got this! I popped my popcorn in a brown bag in the microwave. Mixed all the spices ~
exchanging the smoked paprika for regular only because that is what I have on hand! Melted my butter, stirred in the spices, poured it over the popcorn and mixed it well. Well I can tell you that it did not tatse like the typical microwave popcorns! But at
least it is edible. I think perhaps I should have skipped the spices and just done straight popcorn and butter! Maybe another time!
I think maybe butter and I were just not meant to be but I am willing to give it one more shot...so tomorrow I will be making Cinnamon Toast Scones! I sure hope this ingredient can redeem itself in my eyes. I will keep ya'll posted!
