Hello and happy Saturday!

I hope you all had a wonderful week. The weather yesterday felt like the most glorious fall day; it was sunny, breezy, and a bit cool; my absolute favorite! I hope you have a fantastic couple of days ahead and have the best weekend ❤️

On Brown Eyed Baker This Week

Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce – This quick and easy homemade salted caramel sauce recipe requires only four ingredients, takes just 15 minutes, and comes out perfect every single time. It’s absolutely divine on ice cream sundaes, can be used in any recipe calling for caramel sauce, makes a wonderful hostess gift, and, most importantly, is delicious straight from the spoon (feel free to drop an extra spoonful in your coffee!).
