Tasty Treats

September 18, 2011

A well stocked larder can be a beautiful thing. Having jars & bottles of food on hand just makes life so much easier when you find yourself rushed or in a pinch. Here are a few new treats we have recently started carrying that I would always be happy to grab at a moments notice out of the fridge or cupboard, to whip something up.

A go-to dessert in our house is heated caramel sauce on the bottom of the bowl, ice cream on top, and berries on top of that. We will always have a jar of this in the fridge at the ready.
