Appologies for not posting any new recipes in over a month (I wish I could say I'm dieting but that will never happen.  Sugar and butter take up way too much of my food pyramid) but I've been working on a very exciting new project. If you live in Dubai, get...

Brittle Two Ways: Pine Nut and Rose Water Brittle & Sea Salt and Dark Chocolate Peanut Brittle
      You're welcome. I'm sharing with you THE ultimate Christmas/hostess/make-it-wrap-it-pretty-I-don't-know-what-to-buy-my-Uncle-for-his-birthday gift. Seriously, this stuff is golden. I tend to stray from recipes that require a thermometer. I never tr...
