free form friday, in which i eat too much caramel corn

today tashi's class celebrated her birthday. i was asked to prepare a snack and received a very enthusiastic response from tashi when i suggested caramel corn. it was my first time making the stuff. the first batch was created with this recipe. the second batch i made using dan's family cookbook. the main differences between the two are that one recipe calls for vanilla while the other doesn't, one recipe calls for baking soda while the other calls for cream of tartar, and one recipe has some water added in while the other doesn't. both were delicious and even better mixed together.

the problem now is that i can't stop eating the stuff. and tristan is envious.

may your weekend be sweet!

I love your blog--easy to read (some are so busy they hurt my head) and very inspiring. In my job for a cooking software company I study blogs and one of the happy parts of this assignment is finding great sites like yours. I am so glad I found this! We are kindred spirits and have similar interests. I collect cookbooks and recipes and have made caramel corn also. Since I work for the company, I thought I would try out their product (duh!) and it's great. Without sounding like an infomercial, I wanted to tell you about this company’s cookbook software that’s simplified my life a ton. FINALLY I can find what I need, when I need it, without having to scour through boatloads of recipes and books! (I’ve included the link in case you are interested.) Finally, thanks so much for a great blog!
