And since I'm such a candy junkie I am thrilled to have received this little nugget of a cookbook.
Sweet Things by Anne Rigg
A very detailed cookbook of all things chocolate, caramels (my favorite: coconut milk caramels!),
candies and marshmallows.  She even has a couple 'old school' candies like peppermint candy canes and dots (remember the paper dots, aka candy buttons?).
But seriously I would get this JUST for the coconut milk caramels!

Have you tried this with your morning coffee/espresso? It's good....
So my one minute day detox consisted of this. I tried and did it, but wow, that was hard.
I give major props to people who can down this daily; you deserve an ice cream!
Do I even have to tell you how good this was?
Seriously, don't even buy them---

** and finally a wonderful set of vintage military photographs from a friend.
this is a tribute to his parents: Australian war bride & USAAF MSgt . The photos chronicle their relationship that started in1942. To learn more about their journey click here.
(I am in the middle of researching my own family history; my grandfather was one of the few survivors of the USS Franklin, and it was honor to make acquaintances with this person who has a nice jog down memory lane of his parents, their love, and their journey).

Go Pats!
Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I love mug cakes but not as much as homemade candies, caramels, and marshmallows. It's been too long since I've made marshmallows. Have a great weekend :)

  2. I do love an empty beach - lucky you to live close to one! What type of bait was in that bucket? It looks like sting rays. We had snow too last weekend but it was warmer this weekend.

  3. I love your Friday links. Thanks for taking the time to put them up for us - I sincerely appreciate it! :)


I love your comments!
