Who the heck cares how it’s pronounced (the first way is correct. The latter is a town in California). Only fifth day back on the ol’ blog and I’m going to hit you with a recipe. And I’m giving you this one so that you can knock it out of the park when that first… Continue reading Caramel? Carmel? Huh?
