On our final day we ventured into Liberia to try a famous restaurant. The restaurant is owned by 3 brothers, first it started out in a tiny house but their food was so good it grew and grew. It's now about 3 houses combined and basically takes up a whole block. They had all sorts of delicious sea food, casados, fried rice and for dessert flan cheesecake. I really wanted to recreate this dish so we could make it at home. They served it out of little ramekins and I thought it would be perfect to . . .
If you have had the caramel apple spice from starbucks you know its pretty amazing. Take that drink and times it by 10 and then you'll have THIS version of caramel apple spice- because we're using a homemade salted caramel sauce that is most definitely drool worthy. It was a few years ago, after caroling and light seeing my little family had gone and froze our tails off doing. We were ice cold and needed something warm and soothing stat. We stopped by a Starbucks that was nearby and picked . . .
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 . . .
These 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 . . .
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 . . .
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 . . .
