Refrigerator Blood Orange and Maple Syrup Marmalade

Yes it is blood orange time, even in Alaska!  These citrus are similar to other oranges but can be more tart in flavor and can have a berry like flavor to them.  The bright and fragrant citrus helps bring me hope of summer during a cold and dark winter.  This one has been a challenge in particular.  I normally enjoy winter by cross country skiing and appreciating the quiet stillness of a snowy night.  Our snowfall this winter has been near nothing, leaving a layer of dirty ice covering all surfaces.

Speculoos Fudge with Dark Chocolate Ganache and Sea Salt


Today I’m a girl and a microwave. Microwave fudge to be exact. This recipe, is adapted from Alton Brown’s peanut butter fudge recipe on Food Network. A little something sweet is pretty much a requirement after a good meal. Doesn’t have to be much and this works just right. Also great to give away as a gift or bring to a potluck, especially if you are in danger of eating more than you ought to, which you probably will be.
