Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Caramel Sauce, reviewed

Trader Joe's Pumpkin Caramel Sauce, reviewed

Pumpkin spice has been a very popular flavor this holiday season. That familiar blend of cinnamon, cloves and other spices is easy to incorporate into all kinds of dishes. Pumpkin itself is a little bit more difficult to work with, since it contains so much moisture. Trader Joe’s has stocked their shelves generously with pumpkin spice items this season, but this Pumpkin Caramel Sauce really ... Read More »

Vanilla Caramel Affogato

Vanilla Caramel Affogato

An affogato is a traditional Italian espresso-based dessert. The full name is really “affogato al cafe” or “drowned in coffee,” in Italian.

Homemade Sea Salt Caramels

Homemade Sea Salt Caramels

Salted caramels are one of the most addictive snacks out there. Adding salt to sweet, buttery caramels creates just the right balance between sweet and salty and makes your mouth water (in a good way!) while eating them. I often buy these treats when I see them at stores, but it is not too difficult to make sea salt-topped caramels at home – and having ... Read More »
