Well, the holidays are approaching fast, so we will be focusing on holiday eats and treats until January! We hope you enjoy these recipes, because they are some of our favorites!
This is my, hands down, favorite recipe to make with my kids. It is part science experiment, part recipe, and pure deliciousness!
I am talking about Peanut Brittle. I know there are a MILLION recipes for peanut brittle out there, but the one I like the most comes from Martha Stewart. I started making this recipe in 1996 when it was featured in the Martha Stewart Living Magazine, and have made it every year since! Be warned, it DOES make a mess and it IS hard to clean up! But it is SO worth it!
