The caramel recipe was really simple and took all of maybe 10 minutes. The downside is that it wasn't as smooth as I wanted it to be due to the turbinado sugar. I don't know a workaround for this yet but I'm going to definitely find one. You could really taste the difference much once it was put on the cake, but I'm striving for perfection here people. Lol
I think I mentioned the other day how badly I had been wanting crepes and I found a vegan recipe HERE. The first one that I made ended up being a little too thick for me so I added a bit more soy milk (I should have measured it..UGH) and let it chill for an extra half hour and then they came out perfect. Who knew!!! I just topped them with a berry compote that I made that tasted similar to a strawberry syrup and it was extremely tasty. I'm actually wanting more today, but I'll refrain. Lol

I'm really looking forward to making these more often and of course I'll play around with the recipe, you know how I love to do that. Lol
For dinner we ended up having Tilapia and a Porcini Mushroom Risotto. I found the Risotto (Yes it came from a box!!!) at Whole.Foods and was happy to find there were no animal products in it. HOORAY! It was surprisingly tasty so I'm sure we'll be buying that more often. I made a seasoned batter for the fish and since we were out of Panko I ended up using these Quinoa Flakes that we had. Hey...I work with what I got. Lol I don't really like frying and it's not something I do often AT ALL but I was in the mood for fried fish so I gave in and was happy with the results. Delicous!!!

Well, now that I've made myself hungry....I'm going to go seek out some breakfast so that's a wrap!! Enjoy the week all and I'll be back at you all later.
Peace and Blessings!!!!!
