Other highlights: If you’re looking for me these next few weeks leading up to Christmas, you’re likely to find me in the kitchen with this cookbook open on the counter. Sandy Arevalo goes way beyond salted caramels in this book. I mean, who wants plain old salted caramels when you could be making caramels that taste like French toast and are topped with a crumble of bacon? Or Earl Grey caramels that get their very own cookie crust? I’m in love.

Sandy’s caramel-making technique is also intriguing. Rather than the two-step technique that I’ve always used, Sandy combines all the ingredients in the pot and cooks them ever-so-gently to just below the “firm ball” stage. No crazy bubbling-up of sugar syrup to deal with or worries about the temperature suddenly shooting past your mark. I’m very excited to give it a try.
