I started by making this awesome Broccoli salad that I found at pickypalate.com
It is super delicious! I had it for lunch and Mia shared. She is a broccoli fan!
This recipe makes a ton. I made a scaled down version and it turned out great!

Ty's Grandma Newman makes the best candy! Every year at Christmas time she sends us the most amazing caramels and toffee! It is a favorite part of our holiday. This year I was able to learn how to make some of her candy myself!
Today I used her caramel recipe to make almond turtles. I put almonds at the bottom of some Christmas printed mini muffin cups and poured the hot caramel over them. I melted some semi-sweet chocolate and poured that over the caramel.
These are going on my Christmas goodie plates and I think they will be fabulous.
Thank you Grandma Newman!
