Line cookie sheet with foil and cover with saltine crackers. Boil butter and brown sugar for 3 minutes until frothy. Pour over crackers.
Bake at 400°F for 5 minutes. It will bubble. Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Let set 5 minutes. Spread chocolate with spatula. Refrigerate at least 1 hour; break into pieces.

I bought this sweater on our Chicago trip from H&M. I LOVE it! I usually wear mine with black leggings and brown riding boots.
I also bought this dress from H&M. It is fabulous and very flattering. I usually wear it with a blazer, black tights, and black closed toe round wedges. I pair with my signature Louie.
This is a new skirt from H&M. LOVE. How cute is this for winter with a black tank and long boyfriend cardigan. Maybe in hot pink or cobalt blue? I LOVE a pop of color in dead winter. SO refreshing.
I am crazy about this fun vest from Forever 32. I mean 21. HA! This would be easy to wear with black skinny pants and a black or tan thin sweater and a super sleek pony tail and ankle boots.
I also am digging these pillows for my theatre room from West Elm. This is the last room in my house that I need to work on decorating. I am having a hard time finding what I want.
Also from Forever 21.....Love this cute quilted bag. Great for work....
Switching gears, I am crazy about these placemats from Pier One....
And these accent plates. How cute would these be for girls night, Valentines, or just something different? Also from Pier One...
I love these stackable bead bracelets from Juicy Couture. Juicy is having a HUGE sale right now. 30% off of everything. And free shipping. You are WELCOME :)
These next 3 are from Old Navy. I love a sequined cardigan, some comfy winter lounge pants (a great stocking stuffer),
And how cute is this Baby and Johnny tee?! Old Navy. SO cute with a pair of leggings or skinny jeans and some flats? And a cute scarf? Love.
Love this tank for spring or summer with a white A-line skirt. Or even spring with skinny jeans.
This is a great print dress from H&M....
And how sweet is this bag?! My favorite. Tory Burch Ombre Bag.

1½ pounds brussels sprouts, halved (stem and ragged outer leaves removed)*
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
¾ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. In a large bowl, toss brussels sprouts with 2 tablespoons olive oil, kosher salt and pepper. Transfer the brussels sprouts to baking sheet and roast, stirring occasionally to ensure even browning, until tender and caramelized, about 20 minutes.
3. Place brussels sprouts back in bowl. Add remaining tablespoon olive oil, balsamic vinegar and honey and toss to coat evenly. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary, then serve.
*If you have some brussels sprouts that are very large, cut them into quarters. They should all be cut about the same size to ensure even cooking.
