Pumpkin French Toast ..pinned it and tried it



I pinned it and tried it and loved it!

I had some leftover pumpkin from another recipe, so I gave this a try.

 It was a good idea! Such a flavorful treat for breakfast. The warm buttery syrup
 with a slight hint of cinnamon really hit the spot. I will definitely make this
 again. Actually, I have several new pumpkin recipes I would like to try. You can
 check them out here.





Pumpkin French Toast

2 eggs
1/4 c. milk
1/4 c. pumpkin
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

 Mix well.

 butter
6-8 slices bread

Melt some butter in a nonstick pan. Dip the bread in the mixture and fry until
 lightly browned on both sides. 

Syrup
2 Tbsp. butter
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. maple syrup

Heat and serve.

Old Fashioned Lemon Bars


Sometimes you just need an old fashioned lemon bar......packed with a bright,sweet lemon flavor....

I think my favorite part is the shortbread type crust...so rich and buttery. They just melt in your mouth!

Mix together as for pie crust. Pack well in the bottom of a 9 x 13 glass pan. Bake 20 minutes at 350.

While baking the crust mix:

4 eggs
2 c. sugar
6 Tbsp. lemon juice
4 Tbsp. flour
pinch of salt
1 tsp. baking powder
grated rind of 1 lemon, optional

Pour on top of hot crust and bake another 20-25 minutes at 350. Remove and cool. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Witch Hat Treats


Here's another fun Halloween treat to make!

All you need is a bag of Oreo's, a can of frosting, a bag of Hershey Kisses and some sprinkles.

I added some orange food color and some green food color to the frosting, then spread a bit on top of the Oreo's. Then I plopped a kiss on top and sprinkled away!



The hardest part was opening up all the kisses..LOL!

Have a great day everyone!

Dipped Halloween Chips

No matter how many I make, there are never any leftovers. People just keep eating them, they are so addictive!

Pretzel Ghosts...Pinned it and tried it


Don't these look fun?

Of course I saw them on Pinterest again, so I pinned it tried it, and LOVED it!


They were super easy, just dipping the pretzels in chocolate and adding some candy eyes. I suppose they would look more like ghosts if I had used white chocolate.


But you know me, I LOVE dark chocolate!

Throwback Thursday....Paula's Meatloaf

Thursday, March 7, 2013



           Throwback Thursday






Thursday, March 7, 2013



When I'm in the mood for meatloaf, I usually make my moms recipe.  But I 
decided to give Paula's a try and  we are both happy I did. YUM!

It was so moist and flavorful, and the topping put this meatloaf recipe OVER 
the top. I took Paula's advice and the next day I slathered some mayo on 
white bread and cut me a big ole slab of meatloaf to put inside.

It was a wonderful lunch!

Once again, Pinterest came through with another great pin!

Fall Pumpkin Bread




It's fall....time for some pumpkin recipes!

I love to keep this Fall Pumpkin Bread in my freezer. It's so nice to have on hand, and it freezes so well. We like to have a few slices for breakfast on weekends.



I usually make 2 smaller loaves instead of a large one, then I can make each one a bit different. For the one pictured here, I added some dried cranberries and walnuts. The one I froze has lots of chopped pecans. Another favorite add in is chocolate chips.

Whatever I add in, it's always moist and delicious!






Fall Pumpkin Bread

1 1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1/2 c. oil
1/3 c. water
1 cup pumpkin
1 3/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. baking soda

Cream the sugar and eggs. Stir in the oil, water and pumpkin. In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients. Combine and mix well. Pour into a well greased loaf pan and bake 60 to 70 minutes at 350 until a toothpick comes out clean. I cover the loaf with foil half way at 50 minutes and check every 5 or 10 minutes after that.
