Tropical Toffee

December 14, 2012

Note: This toffee recipe recreation was originally published on Eat Boutique. If there’s one thing I’ve gleaned from paging through Liz Gutman and Jen King’s high calorie cookbook it’s that candy making is supposed to be fun. Bright colors, smiley faces and quirky images abound in The Liddabit Sweets Candy Cookbook. My favorite image, a little […]

It’s almost November and I can’t believe I’ve been in San Francisco for over 5 months. It still has a very unreal feeling honestly, probably because I’ve been working from home for my old company in Cambridge the entire time. But that sweet deal is wrapping up on Monday and I’ll officially be jobless. Whee! […]
