Browned Butter Rice Krispie Treats with Caramel

rice crispy treats 040

To start of the weekend right, make these browned butter rice krispie treats with caramel. I turned these krispie treats up a notch by adding gooey caramels, chocolate chips, and letting the butter brown in the pot before adding in the marshmallows. Browned butter adds this extra flavor of richness to the rice krispie treats. If you haven't noticed on this blog yet, I've been really watching the treats lately. I used to make a new treat every weekend. Sometimes even twice a week, but now ...

Maple-Bacon Cornbread Muffins

maple bacon cornbread muffins 042

These muffins have been on my to make list since I bought this brunch magazine a couple of weeks ago. I remember on Christmas Day, we had the sweetest corn bread muffins with chili. They were the best cornbread muffins I've ever had and they were from Famous Daves. They were almost like corn bread cupcakes.  These maple-bacon cornbread muffins remind me of those cornbread muffins. Sweetened with maple syrup instead of refined sugar and with a little bit crispy bacon for some saltiness. The ...

Hey Guys! Happy Wednesday! Yoga has quickly become my new favorite work out. I've been doing that religiously for a month now and already I can tell a difference. I could never do a plank before and would always do them on my knees. Now, I can do a plank and breath for five counts. FIVE! Side planks are still a little bit difficult, but I keep on finding the more I go, the more flexible I've become. My favorite Yoga pose so far is chabasanna (sp?) The best pose to do at the end of a long ...

I'd tag a long with, but I don't want to spend all day by myself while he's doing work stuff. No thanks. It will be just the dogs and I. We'll probably celebrate a couple days before that, and what better way to celebrate is by making your sweet heart some kind of sweet decadent dessert for Valentine's Day?

My new camera lens!

star1 005

  ISO: 1600 F stop: 5.6 Shutter speed: 20 seconds I got a new lens people and I'm so excited! Besides food, another subject that I LOVE to shoot is the night sky. I could look up at the stars all night long. Fargo is terrible for light pollution, so we have to go out into the country somewhere to get a good shot. The lens I bought was  a 11-24mm wide angle lens and so far I'm really loving it. There weren't these many stars when I was taking  pictures last night and the c ...
