All of the years I lived on the near south side of Milwaukee and lived in California, I never had a Churros. Josh introduced me to them when he and I vacationed in California and went to Old Town in San Diego. They are one of his favorite dessert.
Hot Chocolate Dip
Thought I would share one more picture of eggs and bacon for pirate lovers. When I saw this I saved it to help this old lady remember a great idea for kids and eggs. My above idea was born out of this. Isn't this clever?
I wrote this recipe down some time ago from a show I was watching and don't remember who to give the credit to, but it is the best chocolate hot sauce I have ever had.
Bird's Nest (or Toad in a Hole)
When ever Sam stays at my house he starts his day with a bird's nest. You butter both sides of Texas Toast and using a small glass cut a hole in the center of the bread. In preheated pan, place your hole and bread in the fry pan and break an egg into the hole. When the toast is crispy brown, flip the bread over and fry on the other side. Sam likes to dip the fried bread circle in the easy over egg. He also sometimes likes to sprinkle shredded Colby cheese on the top to melt once it is flipped.
Christmas Candy and Gifts
Here is another candy I make for Christmas that is so beautiful, I give them as gifts. It is like a miniature chocolate cheese cake.
|White Chocolate Truffles|
|Dark Chocolate Truffles|
Add Kellogg’s Corn Flakes cereal. Stir until evenly coated. Drop on waxed paper into small cookies. Store in airtight container.
In microwave safe bowl, microwave chocolate morsels, butterscotch morsels and peanut butter on HIGH for 2 minutes or until melted. Stir until smooth. Follow remaining steps above.
Variation: This is similar to the chocolate covered nuts recipe I have made each year. Replace the corn flakes with cashews or peanuts. Give all 3 as a medley of chocolate candy as a gift.
Cupcake in a Jar
Variations: Using the idea of the red velvet cheese cake recipe below, make red velvet cupcakes and Jello cheese cake pudding and put into a jelly jar.
Using a spice cake for cup cakes, layer with my apple pie in a jar (or canned apple used for apple pie) and whipped cream.
Use a ginger bread cake recipe and make cupcakes and top with whipped cream.
Use a yellow cake, canned strawberries and whipped cream for a strawberry short cake in a jar.
Go crazy and think up your own ideas.
This is a beautiful presentation with cream cheese frosting on top, a layer of red velvet cake, a layer of cheese cake and the bottom another layer of red velvet cake. Fit for a very special occasion.
Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
