A day in the life…

December 28

Hello Tuesday’s with Dorie.

Guess what?

I have a post.

I got up at 4am to make my TWD, but I pinky swore and my word is my bond.

 

Today we were allowed to choose a rewind recipe.   That means we can do a recipe that has already been chosen.   It might be one that we want to eat again and again or one that we might have missed.

Mine is one that I missed.

Snickery Squares.

They are so delicious.   Only they taste like a Twix with nuts…so we could call them a Snix or a Twickers.  Irregardless they are fabulous!

 

Whoever coined the phrase “Sugar and spice and everything nice, that’s what girls are made of” hit the nail on the head.

See, women sugar is sweet and tastes great…but…

sugar
If you are not observant, attentive or patient, sugar will turn. on. you. in a heart beat.

 

caramelized peanuts

It can go from deliciously smooth and rich to burnt and bitter in a matter of seconds, and I have heard that a woman can too.

Not that I know anything about that at. all.

Dad, stop shaking your head.

finished

So the moral of the story is don’t let your women sugar go unattended for any amount of time.

 

Not even to go to the bathroom.

 

Just sayin’.

  1. You had me at caramelization. How could I have missed this recipe?
    Your photos are gorgeous, as always. You should think about linking with Facebook so I can share you with my friends.

  3. So true about women and sugar and spice. So very true. I can’t believe I haven’t made these yet – maybe I should go do a pantry check.

  4. This is one that I have yet to make. I’m thinking that it will be sooner instead of later. 4:00 AM? You are a good woman.

  5. This is the recipe that drew me to TWD and the first recipe in which I killed a household appliance. Your pictures are gorgeous! :) Glad these turned out so well!

  6. Made these for Nov rewind and they were a huge hit. My caramel never did harden up the way it should have, but were sooooo good.

    Love the analogy!! Not that I, either, would know about that…..

  12. This is one of my all-time favorites. Agree…and I like a little moral lesson thrown in there with my baked goods!

  14. I almost made these for the rewind. Sure would have been easier than cinnamon rolls, but the 4 AM bit is holding me back. :-)
