Caramel Macchiato Fudge

Four weeks to go before little Wied joins our family. Nap time has shown up again at our door and I can’t seem to knock this habit. Truthfully I’m probably not trying very hard. I’m also craving all things chocolate. If we had a ton of chocolate bars lying around our house they would...

Chutney Shrimp Pasta
