Cooking with Love

Today has been candy-making day as I prepare for our trip to Florida on Friday. My best ingredient is love.



My mother-in-law loves Divinity but can’t get hers to set due to Florida’s humidity. So every year I make some for her and take it home at Thanksgiving. Here’s the recipe I use.



Right-click to save the recipe to your hard drive and print. I bought the recipe clipart from The Vintage Workshop.

She also loves my peanut brittle so I’ve made her a batch of that, too. I shared that recipe with you in October; here’s the link.

Sweets for the sweet!

Have a wonderful fun-filled vacation and a love-filled Thanksgiving, June. I'll enjoy your state while you're gone.
Hugs,
Joni

Oh Yum! I'd like to come out from under the rock I've been apparently hiding under -- I LOVE Vintage Workshop but never thought to look for a website -- Duh! Thanks SO much for posting the link!

I love your recipe cards. I think I'm going to have to start a new file on my computer, and label it, June's Kitchen!
What a kind and thoughtful gift.
Thank you for sharing the recipe, and in such a lovely way too!

That looks delectable. Luckily none of it will be coming over to my house because we are trying not to eat too much sugar these days. But I can alway dream!!

Regarding your post on my blog. If you can believe it, our closest "local" knitting shop is about 45 minutes away (as far as I know)!! I am excited that we will be getting one in our town sometime next year. It will be a really classy one too, from what I can tell. I think I'll try Hobby Lobby, have you looked there? I have seen those fish hook needles so I know exactly what you are talking about.

Have a great trip to Florida!
