Geez I almost forgot I had a blog! Where have I been, what have I been doing? All the pumpkin stuff going around and I have yet to make anything pumpkin, all the cookies and cakes and I have yet to bake a single thing. Slacker does not even begin to cover it. I have a huge assortment of Marx Foods wild mushrooms I have to contend with, I have a big box of Scharffen Berger chocolate powder, nibs and what nots to inspire me in some way, I have more dried chiles from Marx Foods than the average person knows what to do with ranging from chipotle to guajillo to puya, I have enough Asian Grocer goodies to keep me busy until March - so whats the problem? No problem! The problem is in the blog, the blog is lazy not me - I still cook, I still make unique things with experimental flavors - its that my camera and my blog seem to be a little estranged lately - maybe they are breaking up and they forgot to tell me.
Who cares about the relationship issues my camera has any way - I am the Alpha Dad - I am master of my domain - I call the shots. Today these shots were called and the result was caramel apples - a total disregard for all the ingredients I should be using!
When you have children you like to give them good memories and what better memory than making caramel apples?
Some people do the dip - I do the drizzle and its best to try and sprinkle the toasted coconut before they start to set - dont follow my example, but if you want to copy me exactly then I should mention that the apple is a Macintosh.
