Pretzel English Toffee

Pretzel English Toffee ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert #candy #ImperialSugar

It occurred to me last winter when I was in my holiday baking mode that putting salty pretzels in toffee would be a brilliant idea … an idea akin to the saltine toffee that many people make, but with more crunch. So I made it … and it was wonderful … and everyone loved it […]

It’s a white chocolate fudge with pumpkin and Irish cream … oh and some salty, crunchy pepitas thrown in, for good measure.

I’ve been on a fudge tangent this year. I decided fudge would be just the thing to make for our Wine & Design event last Friday and in keeping with my normal way of completely overdoing every tangent I embark upon,boy, did I make a LOT of fudge. Peppermint was the number one crowd pleaser, […]

Adapted from Tastes of Lizzy T These pretzel turtles are the easiest thing to make and they are incredible! I wanted to make the pumpkin spice ones with fancy little chocolate drizzles like Tastes of Lizzy T did, but the pumpkin spice kisses are nowhere to be found. I had to adapt my plan. It didn’t matter […]


Raspberry Cream Brownie Truffles

Raspberry Cream Brownie Truffles

One of my girlfriends, when she tasted these truffles, told me (in a quiet voice so the “boys” wouldn’t hear) that these truffles are almost better than sex. I laughed, and she said, “I’m serious!” … since then, a couple of my other girlfriends have confirmed her opinion … and I’m quite curious to see […]


Citruslove: Candied Kumquats & Kumquat Syrup

Candied Kumquats & Kumquat Syrup

For my birthday, my sweet aunt who lives in Florida, sent me a bunch of kumquats from her kumquat tree. Kumquats are something of a new experience for me … the first time I ever tasted them was at Christmas, at my parents’ house, and of course they were a bunch of kumquats from the […]

Candied Ginger

Candied Ginger

I don’t know why exactly, but the other day I was suddenly struck with this incredibly insistent urge to make candied ginger. I immediately googled it and found a recipe and was pleased to see that she said it was EASY! Yes! Awesome! A day or two later I made it to the store to […]
