Temptation Tuesday - Homemade Samoas

Good Morning!! This is the second Temptation Tuesday and this week I'm challenging you to be tempted by a recipe that you may feel is intimidating. That's right...dig out that recipe and DO IT! Tackle something that you think would be easier to purchase (many things are), but make it yourself. Nothing can equate to the sense of pride and accomplishment you'll feel when you add a new recipe to your stash.

Today's temptation came about as a request from a friend. They wanted me to make Samoas. I thought, like you're probably thinking, honey just go buy a box, but being the TERRIFIC friend that I am, I said okay. I went to my trusty favorite food porn/recipe site Foodgawker for inspiration and found several to choose from. There are a few steps to follow, but this is still a simple recipe. If you don't have Foodgawker bookmarked, please do so STAT! You'll love it.

Now back to putting the Girl Scouts outta business. Yeah right!! I buy them religiously, but don't particularly care for them, well except the Trefoils, but my friends love me for giving them as gifts. I've added homemade Trefoils to my to-do list too. What was I talking about?? Oh the Samoas...well, I'm not going to monopolize any more of your time. Just look at the photos, find a recipe to conquer and enjoy your day.

Happy Tuesday!
