What Food Would You Love to Make at Home but Haven’t and Why Not?
Funnel Cake Fantasies
For me, I would love to try making funnel cake–you know the swirly, curly fried deep fried pastry that’s finished with a drench of powdered sugar–that one can usually only find at a fair?
I love funnel cakes. The crispier the better. The more powdered sugar the better. A successful funnel cake experience means my shirt and my fingers are coated with white powder, cemented with oil from the cake itself.

What keeps me from making funnel cake at home?
Probably because if I could easily make them at home, I would. All The Damn Time.
And then I would go up a pants size, which I don’t need to do, my pants are big enough, thank you!
I could probably try to replicate it in my cast iron skillet–that’s what I use to occasionally fry donuts.
But, I think for a proper, crispy, greasy funnel cake, one needs a deep fryer.
My late friend and colleague Don served perfectly roasted stacks of vegetables formed into a pyramid at his wedding and they were so, so, so good.
They were elegant and beautiful but also really delicious.
Don also served lobster and steamed corn. I adore lobster but I could have kept right on eating those Napoleans.
I have a really great recipe for grilled vegetables. But creating a Napolean out of vegetables takes planning, which I haven’t done yet.
Plus I’m not sure how I would get the pyramid shape to work out. Any ideas?
What food do you never make at home but what love to? What keeps you from making it?
