Dear Project Foodie Users,

Sadly and with a heavy heart, I have decided to shut down Project Foodie on December 28th, 2015.

The past 9 years have been a wonderful journey — I met many amazing people, learned an incredible amount and had a great time helping food lovers (including myself) keep track of recipes.

I hope that you too have enjoyed Project Foodie and the fruits of my labor, and that of the various people who helped me over the years with Project Foodie.

For those of you who would like the details of recipes in your recipe box please reach out to me ( This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it )

Lightly grease a 9 by 9-inch square pan. Line the pan with a piece of parchment paper or aluminum foil, leaving about a 1-inch overhang on all sides.

Combine the condensed milk, evaporated milk, butter, vanilla, and salt in a saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon or heatproof spatula, until the mixture has thickened and starts pulling away from the sides of the pan, 20 to 30 minutes. When ready, it will slide easily out of the pan when tilted.

Pour into the prepared pan and allow to set, about 2 hours. Cut into rectangles or desired shapes.

Makes about 2 dozen
