The girls and I are going to attempt this Grape Balsamic Caramel Cake today. Should I be concerned about the 20 tbsp. of butter?!?

My only concern would be if you have included enough butter.  :D

Quite an interesting recipe!  I'm guessing that it's from here?  https://www.piesandtacos.com/grape-cake-with-balsamic-caramel-swiss-meringue-buttercream/

Well, if your cholesterol levels are decent, I wouldn't worry....though you might be nice and share the cake (not certain how big your family is)....would make your neighbors and friends happy.   :)  ;)

Let us know how it comes out.

Some how or another I stumbled across an article about an apparently British favorite:  HP sauce.  Not certain of the year, but Heinz bought the company and then apparently, due to pressure from the British government, changed the recipe to reduce the sodium (but it also raised the calorie levels and more).  So, did they change it back?  Haven't had it before, but am curious....

No, the dangerous ingredient is actually the sugar.

No worries! We eat very little of our baking and pawn it off at work usually. Mostly, it is an activity for my girls to understand how to follow a recipe, understanding measurements, and following through with specific instructions. They love putting all of this together and the activity is way more entertaining than the end product. Balsamic caramel is not too bad, though...

Oh, how sweet (pun not totally unintended).  I've been known to have 'foisted off' some of my baking on neighbors and friends.  Hope that all had a good time making it.

Did you enjoy the end result?  :)

p.s.  In my later years, I've gotten hooked on lemon curd.  Often just have a little bit with fresh fruit.  It freezes really well too.  I have a great recipe for it if you're interested?

Must admit, I've never had a sausage and bacon sandwich--or are those two different types of sandwiches?  What else do you put in them by the way?

Sorry PD, that was meant as sausage or bacon sandwich but nothing stops us putting both together inside a baguette, a ciabatta, a bread roll etc... I can add a good dollop of butter, a good dollop of Dijon mustard, some grated cheese, some crisps, some lettuce, some sliced tomatoes... anything really  ;D... but very rarely ketchup (personal taste obviously).

One of my favorites (particularly during the summertime when you can get really tasty, ripe tomatoes is a BLT.  Bacon, lettuce and tomato on (one of the few times) some lightly toasted white bread with a bit of mayo, a touch of salt (not too much as bacon is already quite salty) and freshly ground black pepper.  Yum!  :)

I like ketchup but also enjoy other spreads/condiments on sandwiches.  Love ketchup on hamburgers--along with a nice mustard.
