I haven't been cooking recently, I think the business of work and school has greatly hindered my domestication. HOWEVER, I did attempt to re-create the Starbucks Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate. They had it on the menu last winter but decided to not bring it back...BUMMER! This stuff was SO stinking good. I liked this recipe, although I am going to be looking for a different caramel recipe. The good thing about this caramel is that you can store it in the freezer and use it way more than one time. I'll let alice give you the recipe since she has awesome pics! I need some of those clear glasses!
I definitely had an interesting birthday this year. I got rear-ended on my way to work. The plus side was that I got to miss work, the bad side was that I spent the day laying on a heating pad and speaking with insurance companies. Joe got me three of the Penguin Classic books (as featured in a previous post), Mom and Dad got me a new camera lens (close-ups FINALLY!) and a PS3. Yea, it's pretty weird, but I watched a friend play it and it looked really fun so why not? I look forward to trying to improve my hand - eye coordination.
