The Caramel Girl Grows :: Organic Celery & Scallions

Ha! When I typed the first part of the title...I was actually dreaming of growing a few inches myself. Considering I haven't grown an inch since I was 11... : sigh : Follow along in our new blog series : The Caramel Girl Grows : where I attempt to grow a few veggies...

Celery and Scallions
Before I embark on the true outdoor veggie growing landscape, I tested my green thumb indoors! Perhaps you've seen on Pinterest the "veggies you can grow from scraps" pins? No? Really? You haven't seen it? It's ok, I've got you covered! Take a peek here! More about my attempts after the jump!

Recipe :: Restaurant Style Salsa

Yep, it's officially spring and I'm longing for a bit of sun ripened tomatoes. Honestly, I'm longing for more than just sun ripened tomatoes...but my dream of said tomatoes and other nostalgic wants {biking, hiking, margaritas, and warm sunshine} will have to wait until July/August. Until then, I'll keep dreaming while running my fabulous handmade caramel shop!

Perfect companion to tortilla chips, tacos, breakfast Burritos!
During the winter months, my go to salsa is : homemade : from a can of tomatoes! Nice and simple - just a food processor or blender will do!

Take a peek at the recipe and photos after the jump!

Recipe :: Forgotten Kisses

Anyone remember these meringue cookies? When I was young, my Mom would make these for the holidays tinted a festive shade of pink and green. Trust me, I was a girl in heaven if I could score a few of these babies off a cookie tray! And when I grew up, there was often a tin of these ready for me to take back to college after my breaks. This my friends, were the golden years! Skip scoring off a cookie tray and fast forward to girl hoarding a tin of cookies in her dorm room at Hamline! Oh yeah!

These cookies are light, crisp, airy and have chocolate. Yep, chocolate lovers, this one is for you!

Forgotten Kiss Low Fat Cookies!
I couldn't find my Mom's recipe, so I adapted Emeril's! Photo and recipe after the jump!

The Caramel Girl Cherishes

Recently, a few of my friends have suffered unimaginable losses. My heart breaks for them. It reminds me to stay true to myself, do what I love, be kind, cherish those around me, and love fiercely.
Husband doing what we love to do...hiking in Maine!
This weekend, I head back to NYC for a weekend of learning at the Hello Etsy Conference and spending time with my all time favorite person...husband. 

Have a great weekend!

xoxo
