Susan is going to make a praline cheesecake for Thanksgiving, and asked if I would make some Pecan Praline Morsels to put on top. I said absolutely, because guess who gets the extras? That’s right – me!
Almond Craisin Granola is filled with healthy ingredients. This delicious granola is a perfect addition to your Mother’s Day brunch.
For more years than I care to remember, I’ve taken sausage stuffed mushrooms to family gatherings. Today’s Christmas gathering was no exception. I often wonder whether people are just being polite, or really like the mushrooms. Based on how quickly they disappear, I think that they must really like them!
The other day, I made a batch of incredible Cheese Straws. The master taste-tester subsequently “banned” them from the house because of their addictive nature – they lasted hardly any time at all!
Cheese straws are a true southern classic. These addictive little treats have a bit of a kick from cayenne pepper, and are quite savory from extra sharp cheddar cheese. They’re amazing when paired with a dry sherry, or just by themselves. It’s impossible to eat just one!
The other day, my brother called and asked for suggestions for using raw peanuts. I made several suggestions, including peanut brittle, chocolate peanut clusters and chocolate covered peanuts.
