My resolutions this year ~ to improve our financial situation & to get ORGANIZED. I spent last weekend cleaning carpets & organizing the chaos that is our house. 3 big boxes are ready to go to Goodwill ~ & that is just the beginning!
I came across these photos as I was going through my Christmas photos (the organizing resolution applies to my photos as well! I'm a bit behind on ordering prints, & getting the pictures I do have into albums. This is why I'm not a scrapbooker!)
In case it's not quite clear what my kids are doing, let me help you out. They are roasting mini marshmallows over a candle. I am a proud mom :)
I power baked the weekend before Christmas. I was a bit worried, starting so late, but I got quite a few cookies made. I found a great new recipe that was a total hit & SUPER EASY, so I thought I'd share.
GRAHAM CRACKER PRALINES
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat over to 350. Line the bottom of a cookie sheet that has sides with graham crackers. You might need to cut a few to make them fit. (I used a medium pan - the size that isn't quite the jelly roll pan). Melt the butter in a small pan, & add the brown sugar & pecans. Bring to a boil, then boil for 2 minutes. Pour the mixture over the graham crackers, spreading evenly with a knife. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven & allow them to sit for a few minutes before cutting them into squares. Cool completely before removing from cookie sheet.
Seriously, I brought some to work & had 3 people ask me for the recipe. They couldn't believe they were so easy. So .... you're welcome :)
