FREE Download: Winter Citrus Wallpaper

Citrus is just so dang photogenic. Before this gorgeous assorted citrus was stripped and squeezed and cooked and canned into some beautiful Triple Citrus Marmalade, I couldn’t help but snap a few photos first. I figured since we’re all dead sick of winter at this point, a little sunshine couldn’t hurt, and that’s why I’ve...

Triple Citrus Marmalade

YOU GUYS. It’s citrus season! Perhaps the only redeeming quality of these frigid winter months. We may be completely iced in for 3 1/2 more days at this rate, but rather than see this confinement as a sentence, I see it as an opportunity. To make more marmalade, that is. I mean, if I have...

I’d been dreaming of turning my Rocky Mountain Avalanche Bars into truffle form for weeks now, creamy and crispy bite-sized candies enrobed in dark chocolate. It’s a dream that quickly turned into an obsession, and an obsession that...
