I love this idea! Ala Julie and Julia 🙂

I’ve always wanted to learn to make marshmallows, too.

And the great thing about a lot of these is that you can make more than one for a meal.

Good luck with this!! 🙂

Thanks 🙂 Yeah, I loved Julie & Julia! I saw it in the theaters and it’s also in my Netflix queue so I can watch it again lol.

I actually found a recipe for the marshmallows and it looks a lot easier than I thought it would be 🙂

Hey Soft Pretzels are on the list! I have made butter many a time. It really is a must-do. Please try it and let me know how insanely cool it was to watch it go from cream to whipped cream to butter. I need to flaunt my peanut brittle pictures (tomorrow). I love your list! I love your blog!

I’m really excited to make the pretzels, and if time permits, it’ll be this weekend 🙂 Definitely post the peanut brittle pics! I’m looking forward to seeing em. I loooove peanut brittle 🙂
