1. I'm guessing I'm not the only one who is obsessed with candy corn this time of year, right? My sister-in-law Erin and I set out a few weeks ago to make our own from scratch. We followed this recipe and it was a GIANT fail. We ended up with a rock hard clump of sugar sitting in the pot. There was nothing candy corn-like about it. No big deal...we scratched the homemade stuff, went out and bought bags of Brach's, and instead had an awesome afternoon chatting. So, so thankful for that girl! Anyone else out there ever tried making it from scratch?
2. Do you like my Facebook page? I recently discovered that even if you do, you might not be seeing anything Sweets Life related on your newsfeed. Facebook is trying to force pages to pay to promote their posts...kind of lame! I'd much rather spend that money on groceries so here's the deal...if you want to ensure that The Sweets Life posts show up in your newsfeed, go to my page, click on the little icon next to "Liked" (see diagram below) and select "add to interests". It'll take all of three seconds and you won't have to worry about missing posts!
