As you may have noticed, there have been a lot more pictures around here lately. I bought that Samsung Galaxy Player a couple of weeks ago, and I'm having much fun snapping pictures of everything around me. The pictures are much better than what I was getting from my cheapo digital camera, too!
Anyway, tonight I made toffee. My uncle really enjoys it, so I send him a batch for Christmas every year. It's really easy to make, too. (The recipe I use is from the Better Homes & Gardens cookbook. Here's the recipe from their website.)
On to the pictures!
This is the toffee cooking. It's approximately at firm ball stage. Hur.
Here's the toffee poured out and cooling.
And this is the finished product. Toffee covered with semi-sweet chocolate and pecans! I'll make another batch tomorrow or the next day without the nuts. Dad can't have them, and they're a pretty bad idea for me, too, because of the Crohn's. I would be shocked if Mom doesn't manage to sneak a piece or two of the be-nutted batch, though. She really enjoys them.
