Let’s jump right in, shall we? I have caught the granola-making bug. If you’d asked me a couple of weeks ago, I wouldn’t have considered myself a huge granola fan. I never quite understood the hype and wasn’t even remotely interested. I think the fact that breakfasts used to be more of an afterthought (if even that) to me, might the biggest reason why I just didn’t get granola.

But in my attempts to give the most important meal of the day more attention, I decided to jazz up my Greek yogurt breakfasts with some delicious whole grains. So off I went and purchased a bag of honey almond granola. It didn’t take me very long to consume every last crumb…

And refusing to purchase yet another bag, I decided to make my own. You know, being a food blogger and all. Plus, wanting to be in control of my ingredients and creating granola just the way I like it, gave me more than enough motivation.

Homemade English Toffee

Homemade English Toffee by Deliciously Yum!

Hi. Here’s another episode of candy Kathi loves. A couple months ago, I made Caramel Nougat Chocolate Bars aka Snickers. And there is no way I would let this year come to an end without making another one of my absolute faves. Heath bars or anything else containing toffee is another thing I could never get enough of. It’s the crunchy, buttery caramelized base layer topped with chocolate. The addition of pecans and almonds adds even more crunch and a nutty flavor that goes so well with toffee.

It is beautiful to look at and tastes even more amazing. Need a last minute Christmas gift? Well, you can stop searching and start making this quick and easy Homemade English Toffee. No candy thermometer required!

Yep, I wouldn’t mind sitting under our tree munching on this toffee and singing Christmas carols fa-la-la-la-la… count yourself blessed that you weren’t able to listen to that. My singing skills are definitely not meant to be shared. Ha! [Read more…]
