Recipes to Try
Caramel Pretzel Magic Bars-1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs 6 Tbsp butter, melted 1-14oz can sweetened condensed milk 50+ pretzels (I used Snyder's Snaps) 20 caramels, unwrapped cut in fourths (*They now sell caramel bits at the store near the chocolate chips! So much easier than unwrapping cutting up caramel squares. I would try 1 cup of caramel bits if you aren't using the squares.) 1 cup milk chocolate chips 1 cup sweetened coconut flakes by rolltopdavi

Native Plants for Cottage Gardens--One of my favorite aspects of being a garden designer is having the opportunity to design lots of different styles of gardens that are often much different from my own garden.  Truth be told, my garden is more of a plant collectors garden since I like to try plants out before I start using them in a client’s garden. by fenghuang

Instead of buying the flavored butter you can just make them yourself so that you can make sure they are all natural. There is a huge list of things you can add to butter to make it flavored and it will depend on what you need it for. But you can surely try a lot of these combinations and just store them in the freezer for up to a month. #butter #food #health by Superduper
