I already shared my first kitchen experiment of the day – the savory chickpea spinach crostata (with dill and lemon). Did you guess my other kitchen experiment?
Kitchen experiment #2 for Sunday was pink-salted caramels!
I used this recipe from The Kitchn. I was inspired by those pink salted caramels from Theo awhile back to find pink salt to use on my homemade version. Luckily, I found some at Dean and Deluca.
Hubby and I are thinking of giving these away for Christmas this year. So…I need to ensure that I do at least one trial run.
Unfortunately, for some reason, one half of the pan was more hot than the other and it was opposite from the side where my candy thermometer was. So, I think I burnt my caramels just a wee bit.
It didn’t stop me from eating at least half a dozen pieces anyways, though. lol
Hope my co-workers like caramel!
After taste-testing my pink-salted caramels, it was time to move on to kitchen experiment #3. Any guesses on this one guys? I’ll tell you on Monday. 🙂
For dinner I used that bok choy from the market yesterday in a simple stir fry.
I just cooked chicken with soy sauce, then the bok choy with onion, fresh garlic, and soy sauce. Combine.
Serve with brown rice.
We have some leftovers but I think I ate half of the bok choy all my myself. Whoops! Those farmer’s market veggies are simply the best!
Did you cook anything fun or special this weekend? Tell me about your kitchen experiment.
All work week this week I’ll be sharing one portable breakfast Monday-Friday. Look each day for a new idea for a breakfast you can enjoy on the go!
And are you ready for the work week? I’m not sure I am…I have so many fun kitchen experiments lined up to do still! lol 🙂

I experimented with my grandma’s famous bread recipe this weekend. Not that it needed any changes as it is delicious as is, but I tried to make a healthier version. 🙂
Your caramels look amazing. I wish I was on your Christmas list. 🙂
those caramels look great! i made banana bread this weekend, and a healthy layered taco dip. it was delicious!
That sounds good and very healthy. So that’s all the seasonings I would need? Garlic and soy sauce?
Wow the caramels look so good.
My weekend experiment was chocolate chip pumpkin muffins! They came out better than I thought they would. I am going to have to make another batch soon, but perhaps include more pumpkin!
Hm, I shall have to try those caramels. I’ve made chocolate caramels (http://pigsinpajamas.com/?p=263) before. I got lots of compliments but really like the plain salted ones better myself. Yours look delicious.
Those carmels look FAB! I kan haz one? 🙂
I know what the other experiment was…. teehee. Can’t wait to hear how it turned out!!
I tried homemade hashbrowns. Huge FAIL. Oh well 🙂
Those caramels look awesome! They’ll make great Christmas gifts.
I made the Pioneer Woman’s cinnamon rolls for the first time this weekend – AMAZING. I’ve never baked anything more delicious. I also baked some chocolate/white chocolate chip cookies last night.
You’re a recipe ninja and I wish I worked in your office lol.
