Caramel Popcorn... saving you a step!

You could pop all the popcorn and then set it aside while you are making the sugar syrup. But you know me, if I can cut a corner somewhere, I'm going to do it. So, I came up with the idea of using one of those packages for the microwave. Pop THAT and then pour it into a big dutch oven and then pour the syrup over the buttery popcorn. Probably won't save you any calories, but it sure is faster! ;)

Apple Nachos... no recipe required!


Just how I like it. Look at the photo and copy what you see. I think that I could handle this recipe quite nicely lol.

Jamaican Spiced Pumpkin Pie


I love pumpkin pie but unfortunately, no one else in the family does so I either go without or buy an inexpensive pie that goes into the freezer for the most part. And then I saw this pumpkin pie. I might just have to give this one a try. Here's the ingredient list and it doesn't look all that difficult to pull off. My favorite kind of recipes are the kind that you just stir and bake and this one is pretty close. You aren't going to want to miss this one!!

This Fits Perfectly Onto My Blog


Remember what I was saying about the spaghetti sauce... well the same goes with crock pot recipes. The recipe calls for 25 minutes for prep time, but I think I could do it in about half that time! And it does look good!!

The Old Stand By


For those of us who really hate to spend too much time in the kitchen, it's a good idea to master at least one meal to serve. I think spaghetti sauce, one that you make from scratch or dump out of a jar lol, fits that category quite nicely. Can you almost smell it??

Blueberry and Lemon Preserves...


It was the touch of lemon that caught my eye. I don't usually like cooked blueberries because they have this odd taste. Could be just me?? But add some lemon juice to the recipe and I think that you are on to something!!

Veggies you can soak in vinegar!


I can't believe how many pickles I went through as a kid but these are slightly different. Mom didn't add carrots to our refrigerator pickles. But we certainly had a ton of cucumber sandwiches thanks to our garden! Now the freezer pickles, I have never tried. I didn't even know that you could do that!

Tuesday

Chocolate Dipped Apple Slices

Now here is something that you don't need a recipe for... and it's chocolate too! Does it get any better than this??

Sunday

Banana Holder

I don't know about you, but I like my bananas at this stage... not the speckled. My family on the other hand, likes them ripe! I guess it's all a matter of taste. And this one keeps the fresher longer and looks nicer on the counter.

Decorating the Table for the Holidays


It won't be long before we can start getting out our Christmas dishes and put the ho hum setting away. This looks so festive!
