Gooey Caramel Sauce





GOOEY CARAMEL SAUCE mistysmornings.com


The thing I love about this recipe is how simple it is. Trust me, you can make this and it is nearly foolproof.  It is delicious over ice cream or as a topping for your iced coffee.  I used it as a layer in the shortbread bars pictured above and it was fantastic.   I must warn you - it is so easy that you may find yourself making it often - and eating it right off the spoon!  It also makes a great gift.  Just pour it into canning jars and pass on the gooey goodness. 


INGREDIENTS
1 cup light brown sugar
1 stick salted butter
2 Tbsp. light or dark corn syrup
2/3 cup heavy cream


PROCESS
1.Melt butter with brown sugar in medium saucepan over medium heat just until dissolved.
2.Add corn syrup and increase heat to medium high.  Allow mixture to bubble for 3 minutes, stirring often.
3.Add heavy cream, stir well and allow to bubble for another 3-4 minutes.
4.Remove from heat and pour into container to cool. Store in the refrigerator. Heat for 15 seconds in microwave before using.

  2. Misty, your food pics are sooooo delicious looking! I'm not cooking so much this year, since hubby is deployed and I'm not in my own kitchen...but I will still be reading your blog in a year, when I have my own space back. I love all your food posts (and your others too, of course). And your photography is beautiful. =)

Locally Grown {stuffed green peppers recipe}

  Last weekend we took the whole family to a nearby produce stand.  We were craving something that tasted fresh from the garden and since I don't have my own garden, we found this place.     The fields were full of fall-colored flowered.  Can't wait for those cooler days to come.         But for now, we are reveling in the height of summer sunshine and produce.       It's easy to go overboard here and buy much more than you can use in the next few days.  I don't even like okra but they look so inviting in those cute blue crates.     These tomatoes inspired a caprese salad for lunch: tomato slices cut into quarters, hunks of fresh mozzarella, snipped basil leaves, salt, pepper and drizzles of olive oil and red wine vinegar.       These strawberries wound up being dunked in Silky Chocolate Fondue .       Every girl dreams of doing her shopping with one of these adorable woven baskets, doesn't she?       Even the boys had fun playing in the sand while I took m

Peaceful Snow Day

Yesterday we had the most lovely snow day. The woods were simply begging us to come and explore. We had new trails to find and secret passageways and hideouts. Reading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully, he can learn more than what is in books, for they speak with the voice of God. George Washington Carver There were tracks to follow. And tracks to make. Occasionally, the wind blew mini blizzards of snow around us. And then the sun returned and the sky gleamed blue. The sky is the daily bread of the eyes. Ralph Waldo Emerson There were hints of Spring. And reminders of winter. We made wonderful memories. And then, there were the snowy camellias. I got a little swept away by their color and beauty. I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes. e.e. cummings

Tuna and Lentil Salad {Menu Plan Monday}

This hardly constitutes a recipe since it is mostly dump and stir but I  must  share it here because I love it so much.  The tangy vinegar mixed with spicy onions and creamy lentils makes my perfect in-a-rush lunch.  I usually just eat it right out of the bowl but it is also nice on a bed of red leaf lettuce.  It is also perfect for meatless Friday meals during the Lenten season just double the amounts. INGREDIENTS One can lentils , rinsed and drained 1 can tuna, packed in olive oil, undrained 1/4 onion, diced I prefer red onion) 1/4 cup red wine vinegar kosher salt PROCESS In a medium mixing bowl, stir all ingredients together.  I usually add more vinegar as it is quickly soaked up by the lentils. Serve over lettuce, on crackers or simply eat out of the bowl! ******* The March 2012 issue of Martha Stewart's Everyday Food magazine, entitled The Budget Issue, was really inspiring me over the weekend so I plan to make several new recipes from
