I'm looking forward to painting a bunch more this year
than I did last year!! As such, I have packed up
some of my drawing/painting accessories to tote around:
a couple of General's Sketch & Wash pencils,
a mechanical pencil, a blending stump,
a waterbrush, and a mini mister.
I also toss in a travel watercolor set,
some tubes of gouache, or the cutesy
watercolor pencils I received for Christmas.
Ooh -- there's also a Pentel brush pen in there. Tasty!!

I've been trying to figure out how to make caramel apples
for several years now -- not the Kraft Caramel kind,
although those are great. I wanted to learn how to
whip up my own caramel from scratch!
So I found a recipe (can't locate it at the moment,
but it had condensed milk, brown sugar, and corn syrup,
for starters) and cooked up the ingredients to the
"hard ball" candy stage as instructed.
Well, the caramel tasted great!
But it set up so hard that we could barely cut through it
with a knife -- think Sugar Daddy chewy.
It was delicious, though, so I might give it another go.
This time, I'll only heat it to the "soft ball" stage
and see what happens.
Do you have a favorite way to make caramel apples?
How 'bout favorite bits to roll them in
while the caramel's still gooey?
