Sweet and Salty S’Mores I am not a huge fan of s’mores….I know, there aren’t many of us around but I am one of ‘those’ people.  When we have a fire in the summer and everyone gathers round and gets excited when it’s time for s’mores I pass…..I lovingly make a s’more but then let my kids fight over it {it wears them out so
