You know you’re morbidly pregnant when…

Maybe this is my version of nesting. I don’t really feel like cleaning. There are crumbs on the counter, laundry in the hamper and fur balls on the floor. Fine by me. I have just been in this crazy mood all week to create all things sugar. For my birthday my bud Lindzee bought me the most amazing candy cookbook called Sugar Baby. Since Sunday, I’ve kind of been making a bunch of stuff. I’ve burned a pot and broken a candy thermometer but I can’t stop. I’ve had a failed batch of candy corn and made buttery toffee, salted chocolate caramels with black lava sea salt and fleur de sel salt, butter mints, dipped apricots and nut clusters. I think it’s time to put the sugar away. Except maybe I need to make coffee cake? Somebody stop me. Maybe this means a certain little unborn child is about ready to enjoy life on the outside? One can only hope. Now what to do with all of this freaking candy? Stop by if you need a sugar fix. Not joking.

These are delish but they sadden me greatly. I tried SOOOO hard to temper the chocolate correctly. EPIC FAIL.

Page - Okay, so I just found your blog and I am already in love… This might sound weird, but I love reading about everything you are doing to the nursery (which by the way I am totally ripping off the idea about the shelves)… I don’t know why, but I just keep getting sucked back into reading your posts. Well, this one was the worst. I wanted to jump into the computer and eat everything you listed. I had the nesting phase when I was pregnant (and it wasn’t cleaning either, cause let’s not kid ourselves no one changes that much. Even if you are preggers) I just wanted to build all kinds of furniture… I bought all of my furniture while I was pregnant and I wanted to put it all together the first day I bought it. I was up till 3am screwing on posts and headboards.
Anyway, sidetrack much… So I just wanted to let you know that I am in love with your posts and I will continue to follow you. (in a non-stalker way of course).

Julie - I love love love well candy but in particular candy corn, you are going to have to pass on that recipe so I can have Dave try it out (because as you know rice crispie treats is stretching my abilities)
