What should I do with this can of Pumpkin?, one may ask... Well long story short : I have been bitten by the bread bug again. I recently made the Honey Whole Wheat Bread and Pumpkin Pretzel Bread. Humpty Pumpkin Pretzel Bread was a glorious accident. I eyed the can-o-pumpkin and used about 1/3 c in the recipe then I started shaking and adding other sweet and savory ingredients into the recipe, it resulted in a nice orange hue of a dough.

Thanks to the little change in weather this past week, Fall has sparked a great deal of inspiration for new recipes and snack-ee-doos!!! Caramel Apples have always been my favorite fall treat. Its been a while since making these beauties... Now with my Culinary&Patisserie knowledge....I'm proud of the outcome. ENJOY! {Granny Smith Apples covered in homemade caramel, drizzled with white and milk chocolate... rolled in roasted Almonds and Macadamia Nuts.} { R.I.P. Apple #1 , Ha!}
Caramel (makes about 2 1/2 cups) 2c sugar 1/2c hvy cream 2 T unsalted butter Cook sugar until evenly melted, gradually stirring to prevent burning (**add a few drops of lemon juice to prevent crystallization) Once sugar is melted and has reached the color you desire (300 degrees), add cream (**carefully it will try to kiss followed by butter and stir until you reach a smooth consistency. Tada!!! caramel is finished, I like to strain it to get any lumps out. Let caramel cool completely and set up overnight in an air tight container. It should last for a month.

Since I've been on a major hiatus. I have baked a few fan favorites..... Honey Whole Wheat Bread **A nice hearty bread he is. This will for be my go to whole wheat, from here on. A few ingredient adjustments have to be made. After learning the six-braid technique in school, I was so very excited and could not stop braiding every bread I made since that magic moment. ------------------ Soundtrak of the Day ------------- Maxwell - Lifetime
