Caramelitas from the Cookies and Cups blog. (click back there for the link to the recipe) Basically, they are an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie with a Rolo inside. You would not believe how well the oats, chocolate and buttery caramel go together. LOVE. IT.

Speaking of knitting... it's been knit-a-palooza around here. I told you about Knit-a-long the First in the last post. Soon I will be starting the second mitt to catch up to where I am on the first, before the next clue comes out tomorrow. I hope. (read on...)
Knit-a-long the Second - the Mystery Sock V "April Showers" with The Knitter's Brewing Company - started yesterday.
Judy's Magic Cast On for the toes, which is quite fiddley especially when trying it for the first time (and sometimes the twenty first time in my case) but an excellent cast on since it makes for a seamless toe! Still a ways to go for this clue, and I need to be done with it by next Friday. Seems do-able. For now. (read on...)
Knit-a-long the Third - The Great American Afghan started today at The Spinning Room, hence my bringing the awesomely delicious goodies to share -- that's another link to the recipe in case you missed the other one. We are starting with square three and despite everyone having some trouble on row 5 of the chart - cables, a bobble and more cables - it seems to be fairly easy and those troubles will work themselves out quickly as we get used to the pattern. Here's mine so far:

I also finished the Ravine hat!

While I was frolicking at the yarn shop today, Paul was making this mess:
