How in the world is today the last day of August already? We’re less than four months away from Christmas and less than three months away from Thanksgiving. This is so bizarre. I know every year I must say this but I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by!
To celebrate that tomorrow is the first day of September, I have these apple butter salted caramel bars for you! We all know that September = apples and apples = apple butter! Now, I have to admit, I have never had apple butter before last year when my manager gave me a jar of their family’s homemade apple butter. The story of how they make it is really intriguing. Lots of love and labor goes into a jar and I’m so lucky that she shared a jar with me. It’s a whole family event they have every year and they wake up bright and early (about 5am) and it’s literally a full day’s work. They all take turns stirring it over an open flame in a large cast iron pot (it reminds me of a witch’s pot) because it needs to be attended to constantly. Then at the end of the day, they individually hand jar each of them and then have it for the year! And lucky folks like me get a jar or two :) I can’t wait until she brings me a jar this year! If you want to catch the entire process from start to finish, here is the video!

Friday was a really good mail day. I was sitting next to the window like a dog waiting for its owner to come home except I was waiting for the UPS truck. I had an overnight package coming to me and I just really really wanted it. It had a timestamp of “before 10:30 A.M.” and of course it didn’t come until 10:20. I was still regardless when the doorbell rang. It was my COOKBOOK. The advance copies for press…Read More
I love coconut everyyyyyything. The scent and taste is just so intoxicating. My favorite lotions are laced with coconut so I can pretend I’m in Bali again. Coconut oil as lotion in the winter? Yes, please. Speaking of Bali and coconuts. The very first day I was there, I was super dehydrated. Like..to the point I was googling hospitals in Bali that my health insurance preferred. I drinking so much water but I couldn’t keep it down so I swore…Read More
I’m back from an amazing trip to Bali! Hope you were able to catch the snippets from the trip on Snapchat (tablefortwoblog) and Instagram! It’s been quite the journey and pretty rough but I think I’m on the mend. Before I left, I caught the stomach flu. Which, is probably the most horrible thing ever to get right before a long flight (31 hours of travel). Thankfully, I got it the day before my trip and it was a quick…Read More
You guys. All I’ve done the month of July and August is eat corn. I won’t be surprised if I turn into an ear of corn soon. Jason and I have been going to the grocery store every week and bringing home ears and ears of corn. I also have pulled out frozen corn kernels from the freezer to supplement on days we can’t run to the store for fresh corn. It’s such an easy side dish to go with…Read More
