Cookbook Testing, Sugar Science

Lots of boiling sugar . . . really, I just have to make the recipes my family likes a few more times than I already do - the more I make a recipe, the more it is tested.

When I tripled my basic marshmallow recipe the other day, I think I'd need a industrial mixer for it to hold all of the fluffy-ness. Yes, it nearly over-flowed our KitchenAid (which is big), but I did not get a picture of that.

Boiling sugar, candy making, is very interesting. So many things to learn it seems like, you just have to get down to the science of it - which is fun, and brings many sweet things to my family ;). Bring sugar to a certain temperature, it makes divinity, another temperature nougat, another temperature marshmallows, the list goes on. So, does that mean I can count candy making in my school as science? That's how homeschooling is so practical.

new design + name

As of 1-3-12: I've re-named my blog name (which used to be "Hanunyah's Sweet Creations") to "Ranch Girl's Sweets 'N' Treats". "Sweet Creations" is a pretty common name, so I figured I'd change it to something a little different ;). My URL is still the same, though.

Also, a big thanks goes to my older sister (@ who has re-designed my blog and fixed-up all of the HTML. So, I hope you enjoy the new layout!
