Grumpy McGrumpGrump likes to bake her way back to her normally sweet, smiley self.
For example, yesterday.
I was grumping around, rawring at D via gchat (apparently I have PPD, Post Party Depression after a week of pure amazing)
when she goes:
Stoooooooooooooooooooop. Deeeeeeeeeeeeeeep breath.
Go home! Bake cookies!
So this grumpster deviated from the norm (baking cookies) and decided to make something a little bit more involved.
Salted Chocolate Caramels, oh my sweet sinning deliciousness. Incredible. Incredibly incredible.
And I must say, bubbly, caramelizing sugar is a sight to be seen. Gorgeous! Just be careful. That sugary sweetness is hot… lethal if it gets on your skin. They’re still a little gooey and I’m hoping leaving them out over night will firm them up a bit but there’s only one way to find out! I’ll let you know in the ‘morn.
Long and complicated, just what I needed.
Didn’t hurt that Cassandra read my status update and raced over to help.
Good company always makes things better.
Back to normal.
Man these gooey little monsters are delightful.
