Secret fudge recipe My family has handed down quite a few recipes through the generations.
This homemade fudge recipe has been kept a family secret for years and is now open to everyone! We would fight to clean out the condensed milk tin with our fingers and we still do! And when it was finished, we licked the wooden spoon until it was clean. Hybrid Recipe This is, in fact, a hybrid recipe.
Make it and eat it at your own risk! Especially when the sheriff starts to treat Ava as a suspect. Ava quickly puts together a list of other suspects, now she just needs to figure out which one has fudged up her life this time.
The author has given us quite a mystery to chew on. A lot happens within these pages. The story is much more complicated than it first appears and I was totally taken aback with the way things played out. Ava is very concerned about those plans but also how they will affect her family, especially her grandparents. I really enjoy the way the residents come together in times of distress and also in times of celebration.
In this story we not only have a festival with a prom-like dance but a funeral. People always bring food to the family after a death and most funeral luncheons are potluck. Very familiar to me after the past few weeks. Her date was also quite a surprise and absolutely perfect. The book not only has a beautiful setting, an awesome mystery, and terrific characters, it is also full of humor and a bit of romance.
I highly recommend this book and if you can, take a real trip to Door County to take in all it has to offer from fudge, cherries, beer, cheese…oh and lighthouses, beautiful beaches and more. It is called The Cape Cod of the Midwest for good reason! May 05, Nancy H rated it liked it. I like the characters in this book, I like the setting, and I like the mystery premise. However, even though I enjoy those things, there are a few places where the action doesn't seem to fit exactly right and the characters don't behave as normal people probably would in similar situations.
For example, view spoiler [in one scene, the main character and her friend are chasing a suspect through the woods, have almost caught up, and suddenly stop to watch the dog play with a rope. Now the rope do I like the characters in this book, I like the setting, and I like the mystery premise. Now the rope does become important in a later scene, but it seems to me more likely that they would have continued to chase the murder suspect and not worry about the dog playing with the rope.
I get why the author did that, since the rope becomes important, but it just didn't seem to fit into that scene exactly right hide spoiler ] There were a few more instances like this one where I thought the actions didn't make sense in a moving-the-plot-along-in-a-straightforward-manner.
All of that being said, though, I do like this series, and will definitely read the next entry. This was a good and enjoyable story. Dec 27, Tina rated it it was amazing. Ava Oosterling loves making fudge at the shop she runs with her grandfather, Gil whom Ava affectionately calls, Gilpa. Ava asks two celebrity chefs to compete with her in the contest and everyone in Fishers Harbor is gearing up for the much anticipated contest but when Ava asks Lloyd, a prominate citizen in Fishers Harbor to be one of the judges and is soon found murdered, the police then wonder if Ava could be a suspect.
Ava soon finds out that Lloyd had been grumbling among residents that Ava's fudge was no good, Ava starts to suspect Lloyd was alot more sinister because of his strange real estate dealings meaning the end of Ava and her fudge and bait shop. I actually thought I knew who the killer was from the beginning but the author threw me for a loop when the true murderer surprised me. I could very easily imagine Fishers Harbor in my head as I was reading, feeling like I was transported there, I thought it was the perfect setting for a vacation and a murder where you least expect a murderer would be lurking.
Very suspenseful read, riveting and lovable characters, I'm a big fan of fudge I had the best fudge I ever tasted at a fudge shop in Niagara Falls, Ontario. This book brought back those memories for me. May 19, Tess rated it it was amazing. What could possibly engage readers, beside great characters like Ava and Grandpa Gil?

Ava again finds a dead body, this time it is her grandfather's best friend who owns real estate that valuable and historic.
As she sticks her nose where it doesn't belong, family secrets and secrets of friends are discovered that could destroy everything. The characters and settings are even more true to life this time and one thing that the author points out through Ava at the funeral really made me think. Why aren't people put to rest in clothes that they lived in, golf, tennis, gardening etc.
It will have changed from a shiny, translucent liquid into a thick, matte, opaque fudge, with an extremely thick consistency. If it doesn't look almost set when you're scraping it into the pan, you haven't beaten it enough. And yes--this process can take a long time.
It depends on the recipe and the size of the batch, but it can take anywhere from 5 to 25 minutes, so don't think a few quick stirs with the spoon will get the job done. Look at the words I used above to describe when to stop beating fudge: "nearly set," "almost set. Fudge is done when it has reached the matte, opaque look I mentioned, and your spoon leaves tracks through the fudge that are never covered up again.
It's literally a matter of stopping before you give it the final stir or two, because you need a little fluidity in order to scrape the fudge into the pan and smooth it out. Treat your vinyl the way it deserves to be treated with the Record Friend.
