Oh, man, I love white chocolate and cranberry together. The tartness of cranberry with the crazy over the top sweetness of white chocolate is one of my all time favorite combinations. I even love the look of the wintry red and white together. I had grand aspirations of making this cranberry white chocolate tart for Christmas dessert, but I didn’t think it would be enough. I still want to revisit it at some point, but when I reaaaalllly (like REALLY BADLY) wanted something cranberry/white chocolate last weekend, I only had an hour or so before leaving to pick a friend up from the airport – just enough time to slap some cookies together and set them out to cool. And over the last year, I’ve mostly solved my cookie problem, so I’m less nervous about baking fails when I stack some cookies up in the oven and walk away.
Speaking of fails, have you guys seen these Pinterest Food Fails? It’s a couple of months old now but still cracks me up – the “nailed it!” gets me every time. So funny, and I cannot even tell you how many times I’ve tried something I saw online and been left with a full trash can and an empty stomach, wondering what sort of weird Martha Stewart parallel universe these people were living in when they created this seemingly un-reproducible perfection. One thing I’ve learned is that the ability to laugh at oneself is key in these situations.
