Bacon and Eggs Candy

I love food with a sense of humour. Something silly that makes you giggle and screams, “EAT ME!” * *Well, unless something is actually screaming “eat me” which would be more than just a little disconcerting. It just doesn’t get much cuter than these little “Bacon and Eggs” candies that I saw years ago in [Read On]

Bourbon and Vanilla Infused Sugar

My friend Pamela is a good person to know. She knits the most amazing things. She sews like an angel and can sing your pants off*. *Make that sings like an angel and can sew your pants on. Really. She could probably sing while sewing on your pants and knitting you a sweater. She’s good [Read On]

Rum Soaked Preserved Cherries and Boozy Cherry Molasses
