Logo for Parkside Paws

So, I have these adorable tweens in my neighborhood that started a dog walking business last summer. They are the most professional little girls I know! They take their business strategy very seriously. So, I created them this logo for their business cards and signage.

Tell me that is not the best way to start a Monday!

Then..... I decided in celebration of St. Patrick's Day, I should do what's right and treat myself to a bowl of Lucky Charms, mmmm........


And, on St. Patrick's Day I'll be headed DT Cleveland for the Parade, one of the biggest in the country, watch out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously, I am just so excited that John and I have a chance to win a vintage/ new england photography session with Kelly Dillon, an amazing photographer!!!!!

honeycomb brittle

Today's recipe is soooooo easy you're going to laugh.

Okay, I first saw this recipe fro "honeycomb brittle" in my Hoiliday issue of Martha Stewart Living and I knew I had to make it. It reminds me of Crunchie Bars... if you've never had a Crunchie Bar, I highly recommend you locate some!


RECIPE for honeycomb brittle:

Makes 1 sheet (about 9 by 11 inches)
  • Vegetable oil cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
Coat a 12-by-17-inch rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray or butter. Bring sugar, honey, and water to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium-high. Cook, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reaches 300 degrees. Remove from heat, and whisk in baking soda until combined and mixture bubbles. Gently pour mixture onto baking sheet without spreading. Let cool. Break into pieces.

Baking soda is the secret to achieving an airy texture. Whisking it in at the last minute gives the brittle its namesake appearance (you're going to feel like Willy Wonka here!).

Prep: 15 minutes
Total: 45 minutes

I ended up making 2 batches because it was so easy and fun!

PS. Here's a Crunchie Bar (so so good!)

 
I think next time I make these I am going to lay down melted chocolate on the sheet pan before I pour the honeycomb brittle on, it'll be a DIY Crunchie Bar---- YUM!!!!!!
