Turtle Brownies

Brownies + Pecans + Caramel = One pretty amazing dessert. And I usually HATE it when nuts come anywhere near my brownies, but if caramel is involved, it changes everything! I really hope the pregnancy talk isn’t getting old…skip ahead if it is. But we went to the doctor [...]

Homemade Samoas

We’re right in the middle of Girl Scout cookie time, which is normally one of my favorite times of year becuase honestly, even though they’re horrible for you, those cookies are pretty addictive. But now that I know how disastrous palm oil (which is used heavily in Girl Scout [...]

Banana-Caramel Whoopie Pies

Ever since I discovered that frozen banana makes awesome soft serve (just puree frozen banana slices in the food processor. Amazing.) we’ve been going through a LOT of bananas. I’m slightly conflicted about this because I know it takes a lot of fuel to get them here, and there [...]

Spicy-Salty-Sweet Caramel Corn

I’m not very good at keeping my sweet tooth under control. Pretty much the only way I can avoid inhaling far too much junk is to just keep it out of the house, which is why I try to give away everything I bake as soon as possible. Running [...]

I love baking for people when I know what they like. For my dad and grandmother, it’s easy – just include chocolate and coffee. For my mom, I know she’ll go for just about anything but chocolate never hurts. For my five year old niece, whose birthday is still [...]

Caramel Apple Galettes

Our neighborhood is constantly inundated with little old men driving pickup trucks full of produce, blasting tapes that repeat the names of whatever it is they’re selling at full volume, in Korean. They start at about 7 AM, which is a fabulous wake-up call to get me out the [...]

Caramel sauce

WOW. What was I thinking buying jars of this, when it turns out it is so easy to make myself? I’m a little scared to make it again because of how quickly it was inhaled (most of it by the spoonful). I should be ashamed, but it’s just that [...]

Apple Spice Bars with Caramel Glaze

I just discovered tonight there is an apple tree in the yard.  It was a very fortunate discovery, because about halfway through the recipe, I realized it called for an apple, which I didn’t have.  But the tree, it turns out, has REALLY good apples.  They are small, but perfectly [...]
