Okay maybe not. That doesn't even sound good. What is it?

I make Chex Mix, and I know it's technically a holiday type thing, but I usually start making it around the beginning of football season and don't stop until after the Super Bowl. I love it so much.

I also love cheese boards, and nobody ever gets them for me for Christmas - what the heck? Several kinds of cheeses, crackers, summer sausage, and sometimes fruits...what's not to love?

Candies: I love toffee. So much. It's just a pain in the neck to make. This year I think Santa's going to put some Almond Roca in my stocking. I also love divinity - I may make some of that. And I didn't know I liked peppermint bark until Disney World passed some of the Ghirardelli kind out at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas last year. I bought a bag of that this year...yum. I may make some; we'll see. 

I like cookies too, but they didn't make the cut.

Don't be sad, pumpkin. I'm making all sorts of cookies. As a matter of fact, I just got done making a batch of gingerbread dough that's chilling right now. Next up...Snickerdoodles! After that, probably some frosted sugar cookies.

My other should be my number one. I love me some Jelly Belly---Sour Santas. 



I do like to bake and make other non-baked goodies. 
For the last year, my triple chocolate balls (ha....I typed balls), have been BIG hits. 

1 box of chocolate pudding
I cup of milk...........mix
Add a package of crushed Oreos (regular ones...not the double stuff kind)
Mix.........make balls (he he)
Freeze the balls for 30 minutes
Dip in dark chocolate
Place on parchment or wax paper

I do the usual, making 8 quiches. I load them with sausage, bacon, and mushrooms. I have used crab meat, shrimp, and veggies as substitutions. I take 4 to the get together with my daughters, give two to a couple of neighbors who keep an eye on things here, and save two for me in an effort to bump up my cholesterol level to 4 digits by the New Year's Day.

QUICHE
 
INGREDIENTS (ENOUGH FOR TWO PIES):
 
ONE PACK OF FROZEN 9 INCH DEEP DISH PIE CRUSTS (2 PER PACK)
1 POUND OF SAUSAGE
1 PACK OF BACON (12 OR 16 OZ WILL WORK)
1 POUND OF SWISS CHEESE
8 OZ CAN OF MUSHROOMS (STEMS AND PIECES WORKS FINE)
8 EGGS
1 AND 1/3 CUPS OF HALF AND HALF CREAM
2 TEASPOONS OF BUTTER (MELTED)
1 TEASPOON SALT (OPTIONAL)
¼ TEASPOON PEPPER (CAYENNE, WHITE, OR BLACK)
 
COOK SAUSAGE AND BACON THEN DRAIN GREASE.
GRATE SWISS CHEESE
DRAIN MUSHROOMS AND DICE.
 
PREHEAT OVEN TO 375.
COOK EMPTY PIE SHELLS APPROX IMENTLY 3 OR 4 MINUTES.
LAYER SAUSAGE, BACON (CRUMBLE), MUSHROOMS, AND CHEESE IN SAID ORDER EQUALLY IN THE TWO PIE SHELLS.
 
MIX 4 EGGS, 2/3 CUP OF HALF AND HALF CREAM, ONE TEASPOON MELTED BUTTER, ½ TEASPOON SALT AND 1/8 PEPPER TOGETHER FOR EACH PIE. POUR INTO SHELL.
 
BAKE AT 375 FOR 25 MINUTES ON BOTTOM RACK
THEN BAKE AT 350 ON TOP RACK FOR 25 MINUTES.
TOP OF PIES WILL TURN A LITTLE BROWN, WHICH IS FINE.
IF PIES ARE NOT DONE MOVE TO LOWER RACK AND CONTINUE UNTIL THEY REACH PROPER CONSISTENCY.
ALLOW TO COOL TEN MINUTES. EAT.
 
A guy at work wanted me to give him the recipe, here it is. Noodle around with it, I do.

I love my mother's Christmas cookies, her apricot fold-overs are a family favorite.  After knowing I almost lost her when she spent a week in the hospital, I'm just thankful she's even here this year to make all those cookies!

I make shortbread cookies, both brown sugar and icing sugar kind.  I've made the brown sugar ones already and they are already mostly gone.  i took some to work for the staff who devoured them in two hours.  There are only half a dozen left at home and my son isn't even home yet.

I love the turkey dinner.  Because I have no family in this neck of the woods, it is usually just us, but I have invited friends without family a time or two.  I don't cook a huge bird, but enough so there are leftovers.  And I do make all the fixings.

My other is other desserts.  My son loves butter tarts, so I always make him some.  I also make enough to take with, when we go visiting.  I have made rum cake, dark and light fruit cake, candy cane cookies, rum balls, and other stuff, but this year I am working darn near every day, long days and trying to shop in between so most of it will not get baked this year.

What are Snickerdoodles?  I'm sure we (in Mississippi) call them some "redneck" name, rofl

I LOVE Cheese balls and may make one.  I'm making Sausage balls Saturday or Sunday..prolly Saturday since it's football Sunday :)   And love chex mix.  Looking for something different to take to Mom in laws. Maybe sausage balls or a cheese ball...I just know I'll be glad when the holidays are over and normalcy resumes...or what little normalcy I know wink

I made fudge...it was good, and easy-peasy. We can't stay out of it...

3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used the Hershey's chocolate melts)
14oz can sweetened condensed milk
Dash of salt. 

Melt over low heat, once melted add 1.5 tsp vanilla. Pour into wax paper lined 8x8 pan, chill until set (about 2 hours). Ohmahgerd.

I also made candy cane cookies, which everyone loves. That recipe is a little longer and more involved but OH so worth it.
