Even though I told my sister I wouldn't be doing a food blog, I have become addicted to them recently thanks to her blog, and all the links on it.
Beginning tomorrow, I'll be one of millions of food bloggers on the net. I've already picked out my first recipe as inspired by some ice cream that I had today called Salty Caramel from Jeni's Ice Cream here in Columbus, Ohio. If you've never had salty caramel ice cream, I would not recommend starting since it's probably the most addictive ice cream I've ever had, and it's about $10 a pint! (Thanks Peggy for picking me up 2 pints today as a gift!)
Before I delve into trying to recreate that ice cream, I want to test just making salty caramels, so tomorrow's post will be dedicated to making Fleur de Sel caramels. Well....as long as Trader Joe's or Whole Foods has Fleur de Sel.
By the way, my dog apparently is a caramel fiend. I had a drop of ice cream on my shirt and he went crazy for it, and wouldn't stop licking my shirt for about 20 minutes, even with nothing left.
Isn't he cute!
