the best caramel sauce & a few winter treats

If you’ve been searching for the world’s best caramel sauce, look no further. Meg introduced this recipe to the family last year around the holidays, and this year I made some for all of my close Portland friends (…and myself). Who knew sugar, butter, and cream could produce such a heavenly substance!

 This rich, buttery sauce makes the perfect topping for ice cream, warm apple pie, or a large spoon.

A few more Winter favorites are Douglas Fir Spring Tips tea, and Joy the Baker’s Orange Gingerbread with Cream Cheese Frosting, which go hand in hand and are best accompanied by a good book and a fireplace.

Relish the charm of the Winter season, Spring will be here before we know it!
