I have been in a Fall-cooking mood lately. I am using my crockpot again for soups, chili, roasts, even dessert! I bought a smaller one so that if I wanted to make the main dish in the biggie I could make dessert in it. I have done it once, and it turned out awesome! I found a recipe for Brownie Bottoms (not exactly the most appetizing name) 🙂 that I have made 2 or 3 times now. It is gooey and so good!
I am also hooked on making caramel. The kids and I wanted to dip apples a couple of weeks ago. With some of the leftover caramel, I made individual candies like Ina Garten has done on Barefoot Contessa. They are salty/sweet and it’s hard to eat just one or two! I feel like Goldie Locks: my first batch was too soft, second batch was too hard, and I have one cooling that I hope comes out just right. These are so good!
I love cooking comfort food in the fall & winter!
