How delish does that look? And just in time for warm summer weekend afternoon too!
I don't usually post recipes, but just look at that picture! Pecans, chocolate, caramel, pretzels...a balanced meal if there ever was one! What's even better about these turtles is that they're super easy to make, and, according to Twig and Thistle, they're addictive. They consist of only 3 ingredients, which are:
"Matthew Yglesias at the Internet Food Association blog writes that it's really a matter of overnight cold-brewing and straining. First gather up 1 cup of coarse-ground and stir it into 4 1/2 cups of water, or strengthen the mix to taste. After that 'stick it in the...
Meyer lemons, a hybrid of a lemon and a mandarin orange, are in season throughout the winter and the early spring. From Julie O'Hara at NPR: "the Meyer lemon has smooth golden skin the color of a fresh egg yolk.

Just in case.
I'm not big on posting recipes here on Curbly, but a recent tete a tete with my bud Kestrel resulted in a request for this yummy chocolate chip cookie creation. It was given to me with the title ‘Mrs. Fields’ Chocolate Chip Cookies.’ If it's one of the cookie queen’s authentic recipes, I’m really not sure. What I am sure of is, they are to DIE for.

Egg Nog is a dichotomizing phenomenon: egg nog fans tout its contributions to holiday cheer, and those with a distaste are avid and vocal nog haters.
Perhaps the source of the schism is the source: those who love it have experienced true, homemade egg nog (most likely with some Christmas "spirits" added), and those who hate must only know the nasty storebought options.

Get hip to the pumpkin's built-in recycling feature with this classic technique.
