Salty Bourbon Squares

I haven't tried very many new recipes lately but when I wondered across this recipe online, I knew I had to venture outside of the box. My husband is definitely a connoisseur of all things Whiskey and so I figured he would love these and that he did. The bourbon flavor was quite prevalent in these goodies, which made for one really rich treat. While Nick's favorite whiskey of all is Maker's Mark, we had a bottle of Elijah Craig bourbon, from our whiskey tour in Kentucky, that I decided to use instead, which turned out just as tasty.

Hello Again!

Hey there blog world, sorry for the long absence. Maybe you missed me, maybe you didn’t, but here I am again. This past summer, my husband and I relocated to Michigan for his job. With the move and the new job came a new house. With the new house came a lot of new house work. Therefore, during the time I was unemployed, I managed to spend most of my creative time working on the house, unpacking, restocking, organizing, designing, etc. While I was still cooking, I stuck to things I knew and didn’t try many new recipes, hence the absence of food posts. Thankfully, I did get a job in Michigan within a month of looking and we have had many visitors, which have kept us pleasantly occupied.  While we are finally feeling settled into our home and Michigan 4 months later, I feel that I have finally hit my stride and I hope to bring back some more food posts but even more likely, some DIY posts for things we’ve done around the house. I appreciate your patience as I took a break from the blogosphere, but hope to jump back into it real soon. For now, enjoy this lovely pick of our new home that we love so much (more on that later).
