One thing I love most about coming home is that I can make sweets. This week, in addition to trying a new gumdrop recipe, I made some marshmallows. Coffee and Raspberry. 

After spending a relaxing weekend, I worked at child care Monday and yesterday. I spent the days in the P3 room, the class before the one I had all summer. I miss my kids but I'll be back at Christmas to work a few weeks. 

Now it's Thanksgiving eve and I'm all cozy in my own home with my family, geeking out watching the series From the Earth to the Moon, directed by Tom Hanks. It's especially interesting since I've been in Astronomy this semester. 

Anyway, while not working or watching documentaries, I've managed to spend a little time testing recipes with high sugar content, lots of boiling required, and vast amounts of gelatin. I have been wanting to try coffee marshmallows for a while now, so I adapted my old recipe I've used before and used strong coffee instead of water. I think they turned out pretty well. The other half of the batch I made raspberry.

I'm going to have to try your marshmallows sometime. They look so good. Tonight, after we finished eating, I noticed grandpa went to the cupboard and got 3 marshmallows to eat---bet he'd like these too!
