Going To Kentucky 

Leaving our comfy California to explore Kentucky for a month. My husband and I will be there through the month of December helping our daughter, son in law and two of our grand kids with their move.  My son in law has taken a new position with a nice promotion attached… They left their beach condo (having rented it out) in Carlsbad California a few weeks ago and have been our home roomies since then.  Looks like this fox is ready to make his move.  It hasn’t all been fun and games, but it has sure been fun! Allergies have been put to the test and are now on overload.  Momma (my daughter) had to make other accommodations for this pretty girl one night as the pet dander around our home has become too much for her over time.  I went to work with extreme dusting and vacuuming, hoping between this and keeping the little hairy culprit pup contained in it’s own room (lol), well I’m hoping it all helps.  An air purifier will be …

Baked Bacon

Cooking for a crowd? Try this method. It is so easy. You can concentrate on other food issues ;), while your bacon crisps up nicely, with very little effort. I like that. Ingredients… Bacon, lots of it Process… Preheat oven to 375 Line a cookie sheet pan or 2 with foil Line up your bacon on the cookie sheet pan(s) Bake for approximately 30 minutes, or until crisp Move the bacon to paper towels to drain grease * Check on the bacon from time to time, one of my bacon filled cookie sheets went for 30 minutes (to perfection) the other cookie sheet needed an additonal 5 minutes or so. Cooking time will depend on your particular bacon type, thickness, oven,  etc… Enjoy.   g. 

Cranberry Horseradish Sauce (otherwise known as my Cranberry Horsey Sauce ;))

Otherwise known as my Cranberry Horsey Sauce, it is beyond delish and a thanksgiving meal traditional in my house. I hope you’ll give it a try… This is a savory cranberry sauce that is delicious as an add in to your holiday spread. It is great with turkey and everything else you would normally put cranberry sauce on. Ingredients 1 bag cranberries 1 cup water 1/2 cup light brown sugar 1/2 cup sugar sugar 2 Tablespoons prepared horseradish Add extra horseradish to your liking. This year I added a 1/2 tablespoon of this on top of the 2 T. of regular horseradish. Process Cook the cranberries in a cup of water until the cranberries burst and become soft. (it takes about 10/15 minutes on a med. simmer) Add in the sugar and continue to cook and mix until the mixture is well blended Add in the horseradish, blend all well. Remove from heat and chill before serving Enjoy! And a Happy Turkey day to you and yours!
