Caitlin’s Confections: Chocolate Toffee and Almond Bark

The holidays are right around the corner. That being said, it is imperative to have a simple, easy, crowd pleasing dessert in your repertoire. I love cookies and believe a great pie can go a long way, but my go-to is always a candy bark. Quick, versatile, and oh-so good. Chocolate toffee bark is a classic. There’s really not much to it; it only takes four ingredients to make. However, for those with sweet teeth, it’s the perfect treat. The process is also fairly simple, compared to a lot of other candy making. I’ve tried caramel candies (and failed miserably)…

A Local’s Guide to Aquidneck Island, Part Two

Disclaimer: Aquidneck Island is a beautiful place to live, visit, and explore. However, before I begin breaking down the second part of my Local’s Guide, I would like you to consider this post I wrote. I feel that it is incredibly important to consider all aspects of wherever you happen to find yourself.

5 Necessities for a Night Out

We’re coming up on the time of year where it feels like there’s an event every weekend. It isn’t even truly the holiday season yet and I’m finding that my calendar is booked solid. That being said, getting ready for a night out can be a hassle, especially if you’re like me. Most nights, I’m a real homebody. I have a tried and true routine so that I’m presentable for work, but otherwise, I prefer to do less than nothing. I swear, for most of the winter, I live in my bathrobe. However, I have discovered a few things that save…

  • We’ve got another cold morning in Newport today and over 7,000 residents are going without heat. There are many warming shelters open across town, but if you need help or a warm place to go- reach out! In the meantime, I’m counting blessings and  baking banana bread

November Intentions

I’ve always liked setting intentions. I find that the start of the week, month, or year are instances where I can really refocus, moving forward with a new drive. Since I started teaching, I find that doing this also helps me break things down so they’re more manageable. Change takes time, and you shouldn’t try to do everything at once. Working in a step by step manner seems to be the best way to eventually reach substantial, positive differences. ONE// Stay Present  November marks the beginning of the holiday season, which can become very overwhelming very quickly. I find that I get…

Roughing It In Royalton

  I have to admit, before a few weekends ago, I had never truly been camping. Sure, I’d slept in a tent in my backyard and stayed overnight in a friend’s airstream. However, I had never really roughed it- slept out in the woods with nothing but a tent and a hatchet. That being said, I’m not one to dive in headfirst. Plus, Emily and I have listened to one too many episodes of “My Favorite Murder.” We know all too well the dangers of really camping. I’m talking out on the Appalachian trail with no cell service and a…
