Not so much a recipe…

Not so much a recipe…
More of a “why have I not been doing this for years?” post. Remember back when I made caramel sauce? For some strange reason, I haven’t made it since then. I know, right!? The other day, I decided to make caramel sauce. I’d also been pouring the leftover coffee into an ice tray and freezing it in the off hand chance I’d have time to make iced coffee. See where I’m going? I didn’t have time to cold brew, so I made coffee in the french press, poured it into a pitcher, and let it rest in an ice bath. Once it was chilled, I took the caramel sauce and drizzled it in some glasses. Totally fancy, I know. Then I added the coffee cubes, my favorite creamer, then the coffee. Lovely. For this batch, I didn’t let the coffee cool enough, so the caramel drizzles disappeared when I poured the coffee in. So, now that I have the power of delicious iced coffee, you’ll find me out in my back yard, chillin’ with a book and sippin’ on love. Pioneer Woman’s Caramel Sauce Like this: Like Loading...

WebsterFriday, September 23, 2011 16:48 EDT Scientists at the Penn State College of Medicine said this week they have discovered a virus that is capable of killing all grades of breast cancer “within seven days” of first introduction in a laboratory setting. The virus, known as adeno-associated virus type 2 (AAV2), is naturally occurring and carried by up to 80 percent of humans, but it does not cause any disease.
