Saltine Cracker Caramel Bars

Saltine Cracker Caramel Bars

It’s been a bit humbling for me not to be able to do much cooking (or typing) with my bum hand and shoulder. Especially when Christmas is only days away. So I’ve been trying to find super easy Christmas treats that can be knocked off at the last minute. I figured at this time of year, everyone needs something easy, bum hand or not! And when that recipe is as good as these Saltine Cracker Caramel Bars no-one will guess just how easy they are.

Coquito - A Coconut Rum Cocktail

Coquito – A Coconut Rum Cocktail

I kind of fell in love with the idea of the Coquito – A Coconut Rum Cocktail, before I ever had my first sip of this cocktail concoction. Thinking back, I’m not even sure where I first heard about the creamy, frothy, coconut deliciousness laced with Rum and touched with cinnamon that is the Coquito. Def not when I was growing up in Iowa, lol! The Midwest weather, especially in Minnesota, where I live now isn’t traditionally considered to be too hospitable to people used to warmer climes – or even to us born here. The Coquito will make me forget all that, even though it’s January, now!

Pam Anderson's Silky Pumpkin Pie

Pam Anderson’s Silky Pumpkin Pie

My daughter’s always had a great talent for cooking and years ago, when my son and I were in a pretty severe accident, my daughter (then about 15) made a good portion of the Thanksgiving dinner while I talked her through – from my bed. And we did have pie, but it wasn’t Pam Anderson’s Silky Pumpkin Pie.
