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.

Just in case I forget this public plea, I’m going to send myself an email from FutureMe.org. I’ll schedule it to arrive during the holidays next year, and urge myself to make […]

February 21, 2008

When everyone online went gaga over these adorable Mii Chocolates, I actually pulled out my credit card and bought a set for my video game obsessed boyfriend for Valentines Day.
