Hi readers! I’m taking the next two weeks off for the holidays. Be back in 2011. And here’s one last news post to tide y’all over: more homemade candy recipes, this time via Chow.com: chocolate-dipped salted caramels (YUM!) and orange marmalade truffles. If you’d like to expand your range to more than just candy, they came from a larger set of DIY food gift ideas. Perfect for last-minute gift prep, when all the good stuff is sold out.
