• Maple bacon marshmallows

    Even though we were up to our ears in waffles and peaches on Saturday, you know I couldn’t possibly have people over without making dessert. So what kind of dessert does one make for a breakfast-themed party? How about marshmallows with candied bacon in them? I can’t take credit for the brilliant idea of putting bacon inside […]

  • St. Patrick’s Day marshmallows

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Are you decked out in green? Is there corned beef and cabbage cooking in your slow cooker? Are you drinking Guinness for breakfast? I am wearing green, of course, but there will be no Irish food or beer in our house tonight (unless a leprechaun brings it here). But, I did […]

    I’m a total sugar addict, so I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I’m enamored with marshmallows. That’s why I named this blog marshmallows and margaritas, after all — those are two of my favorite things. But I had only made my own marshmallows once before, at Christmas. Anyway, I figured I had to […]

  • Homemade marshmallows

    I think you’re all aware that I adore marshmallows. And I had been wanting to make my own for quite a while, but I was a bit intimidated by the possibility of sticky, gooey strands of sugar attacking my entire kitchen. It turns out my worries were unnecessary. It’s not that marshmallow making is a […]
