Reversible Toddler Pants, Olivia's Snack Bags, and my DIY Painted Curtains to name a few. Today, I am sharing with you a caramel recipe that I found via Better Homes & Gardens. It's a great recipe, and I have not made any changes to it. It's just perfect. Tastes perfect. Looks perfect. Cooks perfectly. Caramel is great this time of year because it reminds me of the fall. This caramel would be a perfect gift for a friend or family member, open house, get well, welcome baby home present, thank you, or kept hidden in the back of your fridge. :) Seriously, this stuff will get eaten too quickly!

Homemade Caramel Sauce
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
2 TB water
1/2 cup water
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
In a small saucepan, heat on low the cream and 2 TB of water. Do not boil the cream. Pour the water in a 2 qt pan, and pour the sugar and salt in. DO NOT STIR IT. Make sure all the sugar is absorbed into the water though. Turn the heat on medium. Cover with lid. Let water boil, and once all the sugar is dissolved, remove the lid. Do not stir. Continue to boil until the sugar syrup turns amber (light golden color). I use a skewer and a white plate to test the color of the syrup.
