N is for Nutty Brittle

Welcome to my Food Recipe themed 2014 Blogging from A to Z Challenge

I have two things I just love, love, love to do, write books and cook. Stop by everyday to see my favorites recipes and a glimpse of one of my books.

N is for Nutty Brittle


1-1/2 cups of mixed nuts, break pieces to similar sizes
1 tablespoon salt
1 cup water
1-1/4 cups light corn syrup
2-1/2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons butter
3 teaspoons baking soda

In a nonstick saucepan, heat and stir sugar, corn syrup, water, and salt over medium heat until sugar has dissolved. Over high heat, using a candy thermometer, cook sugar mixture to a hard crack stage (290 degrees F). Add nuts and butter and cook to 300 degrees, stirring constantly to keep the nuts from burning. Remove from heat and stir in baking soda while beating to froth for 30 seconds. Pour onto several well cookie sheets that have lip. Spread thin.


Night Wolfing
by Brenda Williamson

Etta has always known something was different about herself, aside from her empathic powers. It’s not until one dark night, while walking home that she connects with the stalker in her dreams. Dimitri Sloan wants her body and soul, and strangely she wants him in the same way, including a taste of his blood. Except, his bizarre claim to them being something called blood wolves has her hovering on the edge of disbelief. Can they really have similar characteristics as werewolves and vampires?
