The other day my good friend Sally told me that she was really sick of looking at the Baked Falafel. Ha! I don't blame her. Right when I thought I was back into my weekly blogging mode I got busy with end-of-school activities. Oh, you say you know what I am talking about....the crazy race where more activities than one could imagine gets packed into a few short weeks? Well why don't you just take a moment to relax and treat your family to this delicious Butterscotch Sauce. It is incredibly easy and fast to make. I think it is perfect served over vanilla ice cream. Add a slice of Oatmeal Shortbread and you have a special dinner party dessert. Yum!
