About as Southern as a cookie can get.
It’s been awhile since I posted, y’all! Starting a new job this past year has been awesome, but with all the new things it has brought in my life, I lost momentum with this blog. Taking a break was good thing – I’ve been able to focus on other areas and re-energize my love of cooking, eating, writing and eating even more.
I got an ice cream maker awhile back – I tried it a couple times and made some decent ice cream. However – when I made this delicious treat, it finally paid off – in sweet, salted caramel spades.
The one and only Chess Squares. I’ve been making these for years and this recipe has always delivered. They’re (probably) Southern in origin – and people love these gooey bars of heavenly goodness – in fact, in certain areas, I’m kind of known for these.
I made these with caramelized onions and sautéed mushrooms. Oh, and gruyere cheese. All on my scone. Mmm-hmm, that’s right.
You may have noticed (all 3 of you that actually keep up with this blog) that I haven’t been posting much lately. And you would be right. I’ve been going through what some might call a ‘period of transition’. Or you could just say I got laid off.
