Breaking Bad Brunch

Open Face Breaking Bad Biscuits

cooking with chemistry– a new Roundlady Video

I don’t know if it’s because I married a chemist or if it’s because I once had cancer, but I do know that I am obsessed with the show “Breaking bad.”

My husband often tells me that cooking is just chemistry, so it made sense to break bad in the kitchen. Legally of course. With that in mind, I set out to make something I would never eat without an iota of guilt.

Hence, the Breaking Bad Brunch was born. Watch the video (see below), and see how you can break bad in the kitchen. And as promised, here’s the recipe for the Breaking Bad Biscuits and Sandwiches.

It’s Round, It’s A Lunar Eclipse

Lunar Eclipse 2010A Full Round moon

Depending on your location, December 20 or early morning December 21, the full moon will be darkened by Earth’s shadow as the our planet passes between it and the sun.

This spectacle will be visible across North and South America, northern and western Europe, and a small part of northeast Asia, including Korea and most of Japan. Up to a 1.5 billion people will watching this extravaganza in the sky!

NASA reports that this is the first time an eclipse has coincided with a solstice since December 21, 1638, with the next one visiting us again around 2094. So set your clocks for this once in a lifetime show as the moon enters Earth’s dark inner shadow, around 1:33 AM EST.

For a clear view of tonight’s lunar eclipse or any lunar weclips, look though binoculars or a telescope. A moon eclipse is safe to watch, unlike a solar eclipse, which can cause eye damage when not protected. For an expert view, check out NASA’s streaming live and archived video footage of tonight’s spectacle.

Recipe

Ingredients
2 cubes of butter
1 cup of white sugar
1 1/2 cup slivered almonds
1 to 1 1/4 cups finely chopped walnuts
1 swirl of light Karo syrup
Up to 1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions

In a large pan, add the butter, sugar, almonds and Karo syrup. Cook over medium  high heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens and browns into toffee. (See the video for the exact color.) Pour the molten hot toffee mixture onto a large rimmed cookie sheet and spread evenly with a spatula. Pour the desired amount of chocolate chips onto the hot toffee, wait a few minutes and spread evenly. Sprinkle the desired amount of chopped walnuts over the chocolate, shake the pan, and sprinkle more over less nutty spots.

Let the candy cool at room temperature for at least 3 hours, or until it is not sticky to the touch.  If you are in a hurry, place the pan in the freezer for 30 minutes. then break the hardened candy with the tip of a knife or just use your hands. It is then ready to eat and can be stored without refrigeration.

You can also break it up into tiny pieces and top a bowl of vanilla ice-cream with it. Wrap some candy in a holiday container and then give it as a gift to friends or the host at a holiday party. Everyone will love it!
