Welcome to the Early Edition of this week’s blog.

Take a break and make your guests (and yourself!) a delicious treat!

I was pretty sure that if I published my blog tomorrow, you’d never see it, since you’d be busy cooking up your Thanksgiving feast. So, I’m sending this  out a day early. I’m sure you’ve already got your turkey and sides thought out, but have you got all of your Thanksgiving desserts in order? This year, I’m serving three desserts:

1. Grandma Casey’s Monster Cookies (which I made last week, and froze) Monster Cookies and Milk

2. Pumpkin Bundt Cake (which just came out of the oven… mmmm!) Pumpkin Bundt Bread

3. Vanilla Ice Cream with Caramel Sauce with Candied Pecans

 This Caramel Sauce is a super-simple recipe that you could easily make for tomorrow! There’s even a large chance you have all of the ingredients in your kitchen right now! 

Thanks to Martha Stewart, I’ve been making this recipe for a few years, and it comes out perfect every time. It’s delicious warmed up over a brownie, a blondie, pie, cake, or ice cream. Or, you could be like my sister and I and just sneak a thick chilled spoonful of it directly from the fridge. Oh yum!

Once you've made this Caramel Sauce, you'll never want to buy one at the market again!

Always Perfect Caramel Sauce

2 cups light brown sugar
2 sticks (1 cup) organic butter
½ cup organic evaporated milk
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
pink Himalayan salt to taste

Cook all ingredients together in pot over low heat, stirring often. Once it comes to a boil, stir continuously for a minute, and turn off heat. Once it’s cooled a bit, spoon over dessert. Or, you can wait till it’s cooled more, and then ladle into jars and refrigerate.

 

This sauce is also a welcomed treat for the hostess of your next party.

I can’t tell you how long it lasts… I always eat it too quickly to find out!
