Oooey Gooey Sinful Caramel Pie

This pie indulged my sweet tooth, and my highly closeted rebel nature. You see, this recipe makes dulce de leche out of sweetened condensed milk. And does so by boiling the cans. Yes. Boiling them. If you are looking to add a little danger to your life, this is the way to do it. I've… Continue reading Oooey Gooey Sinful Caramel Pie

Ghirardellis Caramel S’mores

No, this isn't a "real" recipe. Just something I want to share with you all since campfire season is upon us.

Samoas Bars

Girl Scouts, and their cookies are evil. Little girls in little outfits, their adorable patches and vests and all those delightful rectangular boxes of deliciousness. Eager smiles and bright eyes saying "Would you like to buy some cookies?". I managed to avoid them this year. I hid my face, pretended to be deaf, did all… Continue reading Samoas Bars

Turtles (so named because of their cute turtle shape) are delicious. You can buy a box of them for about $20. Or, you can make them yourself for WAY less without much effort at all. Today I used up the remainder of a bag of caramels, and only had pecan pieces (which I just made… Continue reading Turtles
