Chopped Challenge - Awesome!!

I am a little obsessed with Chopped, especially Teen Chopped so my mom gave me a mystery basket challenge this weekend and here is what evolved.

Basket Ingredients:
Mascarpone Cheese
Sweet and Salty Popcorn
Buttercrisp Crackers

From the Pantry:
Maple Syrup
Salted Caramel Sugar
Baker's Secret
Chocolate Syrup
Caramel Syrup
Currents or Champagne Grapes

What I made: Buttercrisp cracker layered with salted caramel, maple syrup mascarpone topped with popcorn and currents - yummy!!!

The Foodie comments: Delicious overall
The judges thought it was presently nicely, and the salty sweet layers held their own and worked well together. Only negative: my mascarpone started to melt. Tip: keep bowl chilled after mixing the cheese.

Next Challenge: Cutthroat Kitchen - muwahhhhh

Super Heart is Here -1st edition

SUPER HEART and how she became Super!!

One day a heart named Red was eating super Cereal for breakfast. It had 10,000 grams of sugar.

But Red did not care about how much sugar she was eating.

All day, Red was acting strange. Red asked herself, “What could it be?”

So she wrote a list of things she did today and there was the answer.

Red saw that she had too much sugar!

And then she turned into SUPER HEART and flew into action.
