Oh sweet, sweet morning!! I have to say I was up in arms yesterday; either something was going on with my computer or the website but all hell was freezing over- I couldn’t post!! My Sunday brought happiness and delight in the season to my heart. It was filled with baking, decorating, crafting and relaxing. I always fear Sundays, it’s the day I seem to find myself counting hours down before I’m faced with Monday Morning again. So I try to wrap my mind around recycled Halloween decorations and crafty crafts that I seem to be making for no reason. Sunday Funday… My favorite Fall Cocktail & Crafts For Days!
Now to the person who sees & recognizes those roasted almonds! I wanted to share this easy, awesome recipe for roasted cinnamon almonds! Don’t ever pay 6 dollars per tiny plastic bag of them at the mall- especially when your whole house can smell like that!! http://onecharmingparty.com/2010/12/06/holiday-party-treats-cinnamon-almonds/
Baking journey #2 for the day: No Bakes! Now this recipe comes from my Aunt JoJo’s recipe book she made for all of us as we graduated High School, always handy for those favorite family recipes that slip the mind!
Melt Away No Bakes
Combine in sauce pan and bring to a rolling boil
4 tbsp. Cocoa
1/2 c. Margarine
1/2 c. Milk
1 tsp. Salt
Remove from heat, add 1/2 c. Peanut Butter and let melt in
(I like to use crunchy but both will work!)
Fold in 3 c. Quick Oats & 1tsp. vanilla
Using generous tablespoons, spoon onto wax paper and let cookies harden (you can put them in fridge if desired)
I brought these to work yesterday and besides the ones that I smuggled for myself to eat at home- they were gone in no time! Next weekend brings on a new venture, catching up with an old friend and making caramel apples! I’m too excited. The “recipe” for these comes from an awesome blog- check it out… http://www.ourbestbites.com/2011/10/gourmet-style-dipped-apples-with-homemade-caramel/ they are beautiful… pictures to come!
