Baby it’s cold outside. Since today’s high is -8 degrees I couldn’t help but think about Snow Days. Even though I am no longer able to stay inside all day when the cold and snow hits, I still like to pretend and do all the fun things that kids get to do on an unexpected day off.

Wait a second. We’re talking brown butter here. Outrageously nutty, buttery and reminiscent hints of caramel. Surely that had to be enough.

And boy was it ever.
