Fantastic Bake Along – Creamy, Dreamy Caramels

I have a confession to make. I have never made candy (unless you count something dipped in melted chocolate) because the process always seemed so intimidating to me. So when I saw this month's Fantastic Bake Along, I was excited to finally give it a go. The Fantastic Bake Along is hosted by Tracy at It's a T-Sweets Day!, and the recipe for this month was supplied by AJ at A Petite Slice of Life and can be found here on Tracy's blog.

Tea Advent Calendar Day 17 – Caramel Shortbread and Fantastic Bake Along Cherry Tarts!

I was late getting my pie filling for this week's Bake Along, I only picked it up this morning and didn't get making my tarts until late this afternoon. In fact, I just finished baking them about an hour ago! So instead of posting two separate, almost simultaneous posts, one for my Tea Advent Calendar and the other for the Fantastic Bake Along, I thought I would do one double duty post.

A Night at the Theatre: Phantom of the Opera

I fell in love with The Phantom of the Opera back when I was in high school. The first time I saw it, a friend had organized for a bunch of us to join a bus trip to Toronto to see it at the Pantages Theatre. I really had no idea what the story was about, so on the way up I read the book by Gaston Leroux, and I was really glad that I did because it gave me a much better appreciation of what was going on on stage. I fell in love with the spectacular music, and the beautiful costumes, and the venue made it a special experience.
