Christmas Cooking

Caramel or Dulce de Leche

What you need:
  • 1 can (405g) Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 large pot with lid
  • Water
  • Place the whole can of condensed milk in a pot.
  • Pour water to cover the whole can. The can should be completely submerged.
  • Bring to boil, cover with lid, lower heat and let it simmer for about 3 hrs.
  • Remove from water and let it cool completely before opening the can. If you can't wait like me, cool it under a running tap. 

My family was not that impressed.  We thought it would be good over ice cream, or for dipping apples/wafers.  I think we thought we would open it and it would be a familiar caramel we are used to.

Saltine Cracker Toffee

Sara made these

English Toffee

Sausage Balls


Chex Mix

Mary made this. The recipe is on the
back of the cereal box.
  Homemade is so much better than store bought. 

This is a candy our mother made for us at Christmas time.  It is tricky to make, you will need a candy thermometer.

Stacy's Sunday morning banana bread

Massive amounts of banana bread
Stacy is an amazing cook and always has so many goodies when we come for a visit. 

This banana bread hit the spot Sunday morning and I think we put away one loaf before we left.  

Thanks Stacy for making the homemade bread.
