Soft caramel popcorn is my very favorite kind of popcorn. Warm, buttery, gooey, gooey soft caramel popcorn. mmmmmm. This recipe comes from my Grandma Doxey, who was such an amazing cook, we have many recipes of hers on our website. In the evenings when we were vistiting she was famous for pulling out her stir-crazy and making giant batches of homemade popcorn. Sometimes with butter and salt, sometimes this soft caramel popcorn. I always went up to the kitchen and helped, I had this recipe . . .
Caramel apples are the best. They scream county fair and fall weather to me. But caramel apples with HOMEMADE caramel are amazing and they are screamin' your name. Crispy tart apples, buttery gooey caramel and crunchy chocolate candy bits. What is not to like? I once had a neighbor, who, every year would invite friends over to make their own caramel apples on halloween. It didn't matter if you were just dropping by to make an apple or staying to chat and hang for a while- she just wanted you . . .
As if we all needed another gooey, drippy, salty, crunchy, dense nugget of joy during this holiday season, I have just one more teeny tiny little recipe for you. And I'm not even sorry. Use a boxed brownie mix, I won't even tell. Those things are seriously amazing. I love the Ghiradelli Triple Chocolate mix, with chunks of chocolate in the batter. Bake them up all nice and brownie-like. Please do not overbake your brownies! That's the fastest way to ruin them. They will appear underdone, . . .
Who doesn't like a good cream puff? They have kind of been my craving the past few months. Actually I have had severe cravings since Aubrey and Laurel made them for me like 7 months ago. I looove the puffy outside, and the creamy but not over powering rich centers, and of course any topping, or no topping is fine with me- you can't go wrong.For all those reasons, it is also why it is great brunch dessert. It's not too heavy or rich- you can go about your day not feeling like your have ruined . . .
a Startbucks Copy-cat but waaaaay better ok, I couldn't get rid of this pic with those sweet chubby not-so-helping hands. I have been making these caramel apple spice drinks since like.... forever. Maybe I shouldn't admit cause they weren't near this fancyschmancy! I've even given them away as neighbor gifts a few times but they were with like that cheap fake caramel sauce you buy in the jar at Walmart. Imposters. . All thanks to Steph and her dark salted caramel sauce. This caramel . . .
These rolls are so incredibly easy. You prep everything the night before, they rise overnight, and bake for 30 minutes in the morning. We never have anything yummy for breakfast because who wants to wake up 2 hours earlier than normal on a Saturday morning to watch some dough rise? Not me! So we usually have cinnamon rolls in the evening. Yum. The other day I was helping with a brunch and we needed these rolls by 9 in the morning. Ugh. So I looked at a couple different recipes and came up . . .
