Caramel Corn. What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear those words? Summer’s on the top of my list. I don’t know why, but every time we visit a fair, especially the MN State Fair, caramel corn or kettle corn spreads its wonderful aroma across the streets for my nose to find. I usually try to avoid buying any because I hate being stuck with a ginormous bag that I can’t stop eating out of for the rest of our time there.

Plus, I need two free hands to hold the bucket of warm chocolate chip cookies, the best grilled pork chops and whatever else on-a-stick I can find. Can you tell I am getting ready to visit the great MN get-together? Unfortunately, it’s still over a month until we get to go, but it’s never too early to start planning and dreaming about the food we’re going to devour.

So I am getting started by making my own caramel corn, which means I can stay hands free and indulge in caramel corn any time I want! [Read more…]

Mulled Apple Cider

There are a handful of drinks that have the same comforting taste and gorgeous look as apple cider. I will show you in a minute how to make it, but let’s begin with our visit to a nearby apple orchard that I had been hoping for last week. We arrived as soon as it opened since the orchard is only about 15 minutes away from our house. It was a crisp and sunny morning, which added to the ultimate apple orchard experience. It couldn’t have been more beautiful. As soon as we got out of the car, we snagged a couple bags and started picking our own apples. [Read more…]
