The Huntress

My husband is currently married to law school. (SMU, you are a lucky lady!!) Because he spends so much time with her and her books, I keep myself entertained around the house…and with my dog.

Today, while I was studying for my grad school classes, June (my dog) sat by the doggie door.  For two hours.  Just like this.  For two hours.  She. just. sat. for. two. hours.

She wants to catch those squirrels so bad, she has had to resort to stalking from a distance.  Now she is outside barking.  Oh the life of a pup!


Salted Caramel Mocha Latte

Like many of you, I am enamoured with all things fall most things fall, minus Halloween…I know, maybe I will love it one day.

Anyway, one of the best things about fall is coffee time.  I pass two Starbucks on the way to work (and I only live 8ish miles away), and I have tried the Pumpkin Spice Latte…YUM…and the Mocha Salted Caramel Latte…YUM.

Also like many of you, Pinterest has become a new hobby.  So when I found a recipe on Pinterest for the Salted Caramel Mocha latte, I decided to try it!

I used the Salted Caramel sauce from The Cooking Channel because I needed a little bit more direction on how the make the actual sauce.  Cooking sugar was a new experience for me!

Then, I followed the directions from 52 Kitchen Adventures, and viola! Salted Caramel Mocha Latte.

ps.  Mine was still a little bit sweet, so next time I am going to try cocoa powder into the hot milk.

Pps. To clean my caramel sauce pot (I had NO idea it would look like a crazy brown mess…but I guess that I should have known!), I added water and boiled on the stove top until all of the sugar dissolved off of the sides.
