Salted Caramels with Orange Scented Sugar

I asked you last week what recipe you’d rather have for this week’s Craft post and Salted Caramels seemed to be the most popular vote. So, here you have it: Salted Caramels with Orange Scented Sugar. Head over to Craft for the recipe.

I’m curious what is on your Christmas dinner menu. We haven’t really settled into a tradition yet in my family. I keep trying different things out. The most memorable have been Beef Tenderloin, Stuffed Chicken Breast, Pork Loin, and last year’s Italian Feast. Here is our menu this year:

I am going for simple-no-fuss while still maintaining elegance. This is our first year traveling for Christmas. With small children we’ve usually opted to stay at home. This year we are in Houston with my mom and siblings where it doesn’t quite feel like Christmas because it’s so warm. When we got in last night at 11 pm it was 70 degrees F! The kids are having a blast exploring Grandma’s already. Where ever you are, I hope you have a Merry Christmas!

We had a nice Christmas! I try to keep it simple after hosting Thanksgiving. I did a Chicken Caesar Lasagna, salad, rolls w/ asiago & rosemary, a Bailey's cheesecake and powdered sugar pound cakes. I think next year I'll try a traditional lasagna since I never seem to make it!Those caramels look SO delish!!

Merry Christmas to you and your family too!! Your holiday menu looks great and so do these caramels. Salt, orange and caramel are a decadent, fabulous combination. We landed in Dallas last night, it was 70. Today loads of snow. Did u guys get it as well??? Have fun in Houston :)

We're having standing rib roast with a ton of sides (too many carbs to mention). These caramels look delightful. I've never had any luck with candy but I'll check out the recipe when I get a chance. Have fun in Houston and safe travels home!
