lest you think i've fallen off the face of the earth, hello. it has been awhile, hasn't it? i spent a few dulcet days in kentucky, where i immersed myself in late mornings, sleeping in while my darling love spent precious time with his kinfolk. the pace was decidedly slower, some moments punctuated with the gaiety only young ones can provide, and other moments of quiet solitude. exactly what i needed after the hubbub of the holidays and a trip to the motherland. (it sure is hilarious to require a vacation from a vacation, yes?)
one morning dw woke up with the notion to make snacks with his mom. i lazed in bed, either reading or watching something on the ipad -- because, you know, it's what i always figured southern belles did on monday mornings. this was dw's second time making this treat, the first time creating such a sensation among friends at an ice cream for breakfast social that i insisted he make it again, for his mom who is allergic to peanuts. it's a versatile recipe, you can add a pinch more of this or that, in accordance to your whim and available ingredients. personally, i like the sweeter notes with a slight burn of chili in the background.
snack on these immediately, or store in an airtight container.
happy weekend, friends.
