Caramel Pudding


I always have the best time going over all my favorite food blogs. I admire their work and sometimes even drool, but knowing my lack of cooking skills the recipes are just not attainable, well that is until yesterday. Since one of my resolutions is to learn how to cook I decided to tackle a new recipe from a food blog. This one came from the Smitten Kitchen and I already had all the ingredients on hand. Even to a novice most of her recipes seem attainable and she writes out the recipes in an easy to understand way. I knew I should at least try especially after seeing her kitchen. If she can cook brilliantly in a small space like that then I at least had somewhat of a chance. I must say I was a bit nervous, but the it turned out exactly as she said it would. I am completely giddy with my accomplishment.

YUM. I think of puddings as being hard-- and I consider myself a pretty good cook. So give yourself a big pat onthe back! I love my original Barefoot Contessa cookbook for learning to cook--simple ingredients, and if you follow her recipes exactly it wil turn out delish!
