Caramel, Socca and Sweetness

Happy Monday!

Hope your weekend was amazing!!!  We went out camping on Wednesday and ended up having to come home on Friday due to me being SO SICK.   I think I got food poisoning.  No idea where I got it from, but it was the sickest I’ve been in a long time.   I’m feeling a better today, but totally exhausted from being so sick, so I’m going to keep this short. 

I have some blogger recipes to share.   Pre – camping and sickness – I was cooking up a storm, all recipes that I had found on bloggie friends blogs!!

First off…  Averie’s Nut Butter Filled Caramel Bites.

I subbed walnuts for pine nuts -  because pine nuts are so expensive here.     *Swoon*DSC_0147 



You should probably make these, they were sooo good!!


Next up – The Pure2Raw Twin’s Socca………

It was a bit of an epic fail… I don’t know what I did wrong.  I sprayed the pan and everything, and it still stuck… plus, it just didn’t taste super good.  I know I did something wrong though, because I have had this before and it was awesome!   I still ate it though.

Bottom right. DSC_0150

with roasted veggies and salad. 

I will definitely try this recipe again though, or maybe one of the other ones that are on their blog, because I have faith that it’s good!!


I also wanted to share some cute pictures that my kids from camp drew for me on the last day… so cute.


DSC_2131 Aren’t they just so sweet.   Kids are so awesome.  I miss my little camp kiddies!!  3 more weeks until I go back to school, and then I’ll be working full time again with them!! :)


Last but not least… Lancey poo wanted to say hi… DSC_2100 He’s so cheeky. We decided (while camping) that we should have named him Berkley.   Lance was is pound name, and we didn’t want to change it… who needs more trama/confusion after being in the pound!! 

Have a great day, and I’ll be back to posting once I start eating more exciting than white bread and bananas :) 




  1. Boo on getting sick =(
    But glad to hear you are feeling better now. Get some rest!

  2. Ooh...I hate getting sick!
    Hope it doesn't last much longer for you!! :) :)
    You asked about my photo's no secret...I use Picnik:)
    Google it!!! and it's FREE!!

  3. Glad you tried the Socca!! Sometimes ours sticks to the pan too. Make sure you put lots of oil in the pan, also we have noticed different pans work better. So maybe try a different pan.

  4. Kids are the sweetest :-) In about 1.5 weeks I will be going back to work with a new class - I am excited!

    Those caramel bites look gooey and delish!!

  5. sickness sucks. Hugs girl!!!

    The caramels...thank you for making them and LMK! And of course subbing in walnuts for pine nuts works! I have a few other ball recipes, that are just dates + walnuts and something minor like a little vanilla or cocoa powder, can't really go wrong with dates and any kind of nuts.

    Glad the flavor of the caramel came thru and glad you loved em :)


  6. Sorry to hear you were sick...I sure hope you are feeling better!

    Everything you made looks yummy, socca has become a regular feature at my house, too!

    Love the sweet pics from the camp kids, they are quite talented!

    Hi back to sweet Lance:)

  7. oh no, feel better! no fun being sick, but those bars look to die for :)
