Homemade Butterscotch Pudding - Cooking and Recipes

It's possible to trade profitably on the Forex, the nearly $2 trillion worldwide currency exchange market. But the odds are against you, even more so if you don't prepare and plan your trades. According to a 2014 Bloomberg report, several analyses of retail Forex trading, including one by the National Futures Association (NFA), the industry's regulatory body, concluded that more than two out of three Forex traders lose money. This suggests that self-education and caution are recommended. Here are some approaches that may improve your odds of taking a profit. Prepare Before You Begin Trading Because the Forex market is highly leveraged -- as much as 50 to 1 -- it can have the same appeal as buying a lottery ticket: some small chance of making a killing. This, however, isn't trading; it's gambling, with the odds long against you. A better way of entering the Forex market is to carefully prepare. Beginning with a practice account is helpful and risk-free. While you're trading in your practice account, read the most frequently recommended Forex trading books, among them Currency Forecasting: A Guide to Fundamental and Technical Models of Exchange Rate Determination, by Michael R. Rosenberg is short, not too sweet and highly admired introduction to the Forex market. Forex Strategies: Best Forex Strategies for High Profits and Reduced Risk, by Matthew Maybury is an excellent introduction to Forex trading. The Little Book of Currency Trading: How to Make Big Profits in the World of Forex, by Kathy Lien is another concise introduction that has stood the test of time. All three are available on Amazon. Rosenberg's book, unfortunately, is pricey, but it's widely available in public libraries. "Trading in the Zone: Master the Market with Confidence, Discipline and a Winning Attitude," by Mark Douglas is another good book that's available on Amazon, and, again, somewhat pricey, although the Kindle edition is not. Use the information gained from your reading to plan your trades before plunging in. The more you change your plan, the more you end up in trouble and the less likely that elusive forex profit will end up in your pocket. Diversify and Limit Your Risks Two strategies that belong in every trader's arsenal are: Diversification: Traders who execute many small traders, particularly in different markets where the correlation between markets is low, have a better chance of making a profit. Putting all your money in one big trade is always a bad idea. Familiarize yourself with ways guaranteeing a profit on an already profitable order, such as a trailing stop, and of limiting losses using stop and limit orders. These strategies and more are covered in the recommended books. Novice traders often make the mistake of concentrating on how to win; it's even more important to understand how to limit your losses. Be Patient Forex traders, particularly beginners, are prone to getting nervous if a trade does not go their way immediately, or if the trade goes into a little profit they get itchy to pull the plug and walk away with a small profit that could have been a significant profit with little downside risk using appropriate risk reduction strategies. In "On Any Given Sunday," Al Pacino reminds us that "football is a game of inches." That's a winning attitude in the Forex market as well. Remember that you are going to win some trades and lose others. Take satisfaction in the accumulation of a few more wins than losses. Over time, that could make you rich!

Make this homemade butterscotch pudding for your family and get rave reviews! You won’t believe how easy it is, and it has the most incredibly nostalgic flavor! 
Happy Tuesday morning, everyone! How was your holiday weekend?
We had a good one. It was nice and long. The kids were off school on Friday and Monday, and my husband was also home for a lot of it. I think everyone got really relaxed and now they’re all ready for a new week.
Everyone, with the possible exception of me. Sunday was a lazy day in front of the pool, but other than that I’ve been baking up a storm, getting ready for an upcoming trip. On Wednesday morning I’m hopping on a plane to travel across the country to Washington, to tour the Stemilt orchards and learn all about how they grow their fruit. It should be fun! I’m really looking forward to it, but it’s been a lot of prep to get recipes developed, made, and photographed so that they can keep on coming while I’m away.
It’s times like these when you’re really grateful for a simple, easy, and quick dessert with tons of fabulous flavor! And this homemade butterscotch pudding delivers on all counts.
Butterscotch pudding is such a classic. I love pudding and I think it’s so underrated. It’s cool, comforting, and takes me right back to my childhood. In my family, it’s a huge favorite. And I love it for this time of year because the flavor is so warm and homey.
Lately, the nights have been much cooler, but during the day we’re still seeing temps in the 80’s or 90’s, so it’s nice to have a no-bake treat to serve the family as an after school snack or dessert. And this one comes together in a snap.
Up until a few years ago, I had no idea how easy it was to make homemade pudding. I had only ever made the kind from a box, but one day the kids had a craving and I didn’t have any on hand. So I just started throwing stuff in a pot, stirring and cooking, and before I knew it we had pudding. It was so simple and SO much more delicious than anything store-bought or pre-packaged. Plus it’s all stuff you probably already have in your pantry and fridge. Seriously, who needs that box?
If you’ve ever wondered “what exactly is butterscotch,” it’s pretty simple: brown sugar and butter. There’s no actual “Scotch.” No alcohol of any kind. All of the warm, nostalgic flavor just comes from those two ingredients, plus a little salt for balance. We add cornstarch to thicken it and milk and cream to make it creamy, a little vanilla for flavor, and that’s about all there is to it.
It cooks right on the stove and thickens up right before your very eyes. You can eat it warm if you’d like, but I prefer to pour it into little jars and chill it in the fridge. Then, just before serving, top it with a little whipped cream and some toffee bits or toasted pecans.
It’s a nostalgic dessert with tons of rich flavor! I hope you’ll give it a try sometime soon, and let me know how you like it in the comments section below.
