Old School Cheesecake Pie

Old School Cheesecake Pie

There are sometimes you just want a nice dessert for the family, something classic and not too over the top. That’s when I think about this Old School Cheesecake Pie. While it might lack some of the show-stopping looks of a big springform pan cheesecake, it has all the flavor of the classic cheesecake. It’s just smaller; it’s just enough!

Not Grandma's Salmon Loaf

Not Grandma’s Salmon Loaf

As a child, I don’t think anything struck more terror in my heart than learning dinner was Grandma’s Salmon Loaf. It was on regular rotation during both Advent, the weeks leading up to Christmas, and Lent, before Easter, when there were many days of fasting, abstinence, and obligation when meat wasn’t served. I’ve always thought about making a post for that Salmon Loaf, but just never could do that to y’all – or to me! So that’s prompted me to come up with Not Grandma’s Salmon Loaf!

I gotta tell ya, I’m in love with my Crab Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers and they’re just great for a Superbowl or any party. But I need a little Old Bay Seasoning for those. Old Bay isn’t something I use often, so I mix up my own and when I do, I try to think about ways to use up the last bit. Long story short, that’s how these Old Bay Oyster Crackers came about.

So ya all know if you follow me (and if you don’t, I’d love it if you do! Check on the sidebar at the right) that I just posted out my Saltine Cracker Caramel Bars. I just couldn’t resist taking another crack (bad pun) at a cracker treat. I am all about quick, fun and easy this year! I’ve been so behind at getting my holiday treats posted because of my various “ailments” (Btw, my hand & shoulder seem to be better after cortisone shots although I had my doubts at first!) that I’m doubling up and posting two treats, today.

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.
