Valentine's Treat

This is the brown butter ice cream I made recently.  I love ice cream but can't eat more than one scoop of this.  There's a whopping two sticks of butter in here!  Honestly, it kind of leaves a film in your mouth like you just ate butter straight.  I attempted to make some turtles/pecan caramel clusters but they didn't come out exactly like I wanted. But I think they make a good match for valentines day!  Gary and I didn't exchange gifts this year, just little things for each other.  I made him this paper cut out and he got me some rescue remedy pastilles


Matchbox Kitchen

If you look over to the right side of my blog you'll see a new link called Matchbox Kitchen. It's a new blog Gary and I started. So far it's mostly sweets I've made, but soon enough Gary will be contributing as well. He makes the savory dishes while I make desserts and bread.  I'll still post some photos of my food here but I'm going to start adding recipes and tips to Matchbox Kitchen as well.  Take a look and tell us what you think!


Steel Cut Oats

My daily breakfast the past week has been steel cut oatmeal with a helping of milk and golden raisins.  I'm not really an oatmeal person (excluding the cookie kind), but steel cut oats are so much tastier, I don't know why I've never had them before.  I have the "quick cook" kind from Trader Joe's, so they only take about 5-7 minutes to make. The raisins add the perfect amount of sweetness so I don't have to add any sugar.
