Homemade Caramel Sauce

Posted on

I’ve been wanting to try my hand at making homemade caramel sauce for some time now, but for whatever reason, the idea of it intimidated me a bit.  I finally went for it (the little push thanks to our recent purchase of a couple NuWave Precision Induction Cooktops, which I totally love and use all the time!) and I am more than pleased with the results!

No Bones About It – Making Chicken Stock Using Boneless Breasts

Posted on

chickenstocktitle

So here was the problem: My poor little girls have been sick, and I wanted to make homemade stock with all the added health benefits instead of using my go-to easy-peasy chick base to make homemade chicken soup. HOWEVER…I don’t usually buy anything but boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I searched and searched for a recipe or tips on how to still make a tasty, adequate stock without using bones/carcasses and found NOTHING. Seriously…zip, zilch, nada, nothing. So, I decided it was time to experiment and make up my own…and I am so happy with the results, I think I shall share it with the world! (Or at least whomever comes across my rantings here.)   🙂

Michigan State ‘Sparty’ Cookies, by request

Disclosure: I really have no loyalty either way Michigan State University vs University of Michigan, my only tie is that one of my nephews attends MSU. That said, I recently created some MSU Sparty cookies that I think turned out alright…

My new obsession…

Posted on

Have you ever stumbled across something and immediately become almost obsessed with it? I did…

A few months ago I decided I wanted to make some fun decorated cookies for Halloween, so I started searching Pinterest to see what I could find.  After a few hours I decided I must start making cookies!  I found so many blogs by some extremely talented women, and I became completely inspired by them.  I’ve been making cakes for a few years now; cookies just seemed like the next logical step.  These are some I’ve done so far.
