microwave caramels.


if i had known sooner how easy these are to make, i would be a much plumper individual. i'm going to have to limit myself to how often i can use this recipe... :)

1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup pecans, optional

spray 8x8 pan with Pam. combine all ingredients in a large glass bowl. stir well. cook, uncovered, in microwave on high for 7 minutes. allow to cool for 5 minutes. stir again. pour into pan. cool completely in refrigerator. cut into squares and wrap in waxed paper. {to make as a dip for apples, reduce cooking time by one minute.}

and then immediately share them before you eat them all by yourself.

i burned my first batch. in my microwave i only needed to cook it for 5 minutes.

sausage frittata.


this was our general conference breakfast on sunday. i didn't have a non-stick skillet, so it took lots of elbow grease to scrub the remains out of my pan, but it was worth it :)
1/2- 1 lb ground pork sausage
2 cups cubed cooked red potatoes (i used frozen hash browns bc i was lazy)
8 eggs
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 cup chopped seeded tomato
2 green onions, thinly sliced

cook sausage in large non-stick skillet over medium heat 4-5 minutes or until hot. stir in potatoes. beat eggs, cheese, salt & pepper in a large bowl with wire whisk. pour over sausage mixture. cook over medium-high heat 2 minutes, occasionally lifting edge with spatula and tilting skillet to allow uncooked egg to flow underneath. (do not stir.) reduce heat to medium-low; cover. cook 14-17 minutes or until eggs are set. top with tomato and onions. cut into 8 wedges to serve.
