Almost There

Tick, tick, tick. That's what i hear in my head.
Ms. A's bat Mitzvah is in eight days. EIGHT DAYS! Yes, i'm freaking out. No, i have not finished with my list yet. Yes, it's all going to be O.K.
Ms.A has been working so hard to memorize her Hebrew, it just amazes me. I never could have done what she's about to do at 13.
Passover ended last week and i wanted to share with you one of my favorite passover desserts. I've seen this recipe made with saltines, but i think matzo rocks it.

Matzo Brickle

Line a cookie sheet with foil and lay about 4 boards of matzo on the pan, breaking to fit.
Pre-heat your oven to 450.

In a sauce pan over medium heat, heat 1 cup of butter and 1 cup of brown sugar till melted into a caramel sauce.
Pour hot caramel sauce over matzo. Bake for 4 minutes until bubbly. Remove.
Sprinkle on 12 0z of chocolate chips. return to oven for 1 minute. Spread chocolate evenly over caramel/matzo.Break up about five Heath bars { make it six, i always end up eating one!}

Sprinkle and press Heath bars into chocolate. Refrigerate to cool.

Lift the foil and break into big pieces. This never lasts more than a day in our house.

It's been raining like crazy here. Just thought i'd share with you the latest craze in Ladradoodle fashion- mud mittens. They're stylish, they're hip, all the dogs with fuzzy feet are wearing them!
She loves to showcase them on her runway, my newly cleaned family room carpet. Mud mittens, get yours today!

Is it too early for a glass of wine?

Happy weekend!
