How do you feel about egg nog? Most of my family loves it! When I came across this recipe for "Egg" Nog in Gooseberry Patch Christmas book 10, I knew I had to try it. It actually taste pretty much like the ‘real' thing! I was impressed at what a little box of vanilla pudding mix could do!
3 oz pkg vanilla instant pudding
1/3 cup sugar
8 cups milk
2 t. vanilla extract
½ to 1 t. nutmeg
In a large bowl, mix first four ingredients until combined. Add desired amount of nutmeg. Serve chilled. Keeps well in the refrigerator. Makes about 8 cups.
Have a little extra potato left over from a meal? Make candy!
You can find this recipe in the Gooseberry Patch Family Favorites cookbook! There are so many good recipes in this book too! If you don't have it, or Book 10, then hop on over to Gooseberry Patch and pick up a copy for yourself and a gift for someone else! You will be glad you did!!
I made POTATO CANDY! Yep...exactly...candy made out of potatoes! It's some pretty yummy stuff if I do say so myself! You can find the recipe on pg 203 in Family Favorites cookbook. But, in case you don't have this book already...I will give you the recipe!
1 lb unsweetened shredded coconut
2 medium potatoes, cooked and mashed
1 lb English walnuts, ground ( I used ground pecans instead!)
2 lbs. powdered sugar
semi-sweet chocolate chips
Combine coconut, potatoes and walnuts, mixing well; refrigerate several hours. Shape into walnut-sized balls and roll in powdered sugar. Drizzle melted semi-sweet chocolate over candy for a delicious treat. And there you have it......Now that's a sweet treat!!
I guess I could use a 'nicer' camera.
Hmmm....Dear Santa, ..........
