Corn Puff Carmel Corn 1 pkg (8oz) Puffcorn, 1 c salted peanuts, 1 cup butter (no substitutes), 1 cup packed brown sugar, 1/2 c light corn syrup, 1 tsp baking soda Place puffcorn & peanuts in large roasting pan. In a heavy 2 qt saucepan bring butter, brown sugar, & corn syrup to a boil-stirring-cook for 2 min. Remove from heat & add baking soda; stir well (mixture will foam up). Pour over puffcorn & toss well to coat. Bake at 250 degrees for 45 minutes-stirring every 15 minutes. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container.

I think this is a great discussion starter. I have a yummy chocolate chip cookie recipe to share. INGREDIENTS 1 cup butter flavored shortening 3/4 cup white sugar 3/4 cup packed brown sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 eggs 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips 1 cup white chocolate chips DIRECTIONS Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a medium bowl, cream the shortening, white sugar, and brown sugar together with a wooden spoon. Add eggs and vanilla, mix well. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt, stir into the creamed mixture. Finally stir in the semi sweet chips and the white chips, if the batter is too stiff, you may need to use your hands. Drop cookies by heaping spoonfuls onto unprepared cookie sheets. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. I always like to take my cookies out of the oven when they are light brown and not yet set. It creates a softer cookie. Allow cookies to cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before removing to cool on wire racks.

Rum Balls: Ingredients 1 c. crushed vanilla wafers 1 c. ground pecans or walnuts 1 c. confectioners sugar 2 Tb. cocoa 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 Tb corn syrup 1/4 c. rum or bourbon (more for cook if desired) Directions Grind the nuts in a food processor until very finely chopped. This will take a minute or minute and a half. Mix crushed (fine, but not to a powder!) cookies, nuts, sugar and cocoa. Add combined syrup and rum. Let sit for a few days in the refrigerator; the batter improves with age. Shape into 3/4-inch diameter balls and roll in confectioners sugar.

Sausage and Beans on Rice This is great in the winter! Dump four regular sized cans of your choice of beans. I like Red Kidney, White Northern, Pinto and Black beans. Buy one package of smoked sausage, I like the skinless for this, and dice it up. Dump everything in a crockpot and add 1 can diced tomatoes and one chicken boullion cube. Cover with water. Add garlic, onion, salt, pepper and a bay leaf. Let simmer on low 8 hours, on high 4 hours. Serve over rice.

This is a pumpkin roll recipe I use every year. I don't know where it is from originally but I got it from my grandmothers recipe box before she passed on. Hope this one helps. 3 eggs 1 cup white sugar 2/3 cup solid pack pumpkin puree(You can use real pumpkin if you know how to puree it) 1 teaspoon lemon juice 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon ground ginger 1 cup chopped pecans 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar for dusting 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese 4 tablespoons butter 1 cup confectioners' sugar 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar for dusting DIRECTIONS Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10x15 inch jellyroll pan. In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugar with an electric mixer on high speed for five minutes. Gradually mix in pumpkin and lemon juice. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and ginger; stir into the pumpkin mixture. Spread batter evenly into the prepared pan. Sprinkle pecans over the top of the batter. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the center springs back when touched. Loosen edges with a knife. Turn out on two dishtowels that have been dusted with confectioners' sugar. Roll up cake using towels, and let cool for about 20 minutes. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, butter, 1 cup confectioners' sugar, and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Unroll pumpkin cake when cool, spread with filling, and roll up. Place pumpkin roll on a long sheet of waxed paper, and dust with confectioners' sugar. Wrap cake in waxed paper, and twist ends of waxed paper like a candy wrapper. Refrigerate overnight. Serve chilled; before slicing, dust with additional confectioners' sugar.
