I am going to do a little contest to increase activity in our blog. It will run like a raffle.

1 recipe=1 raffle ticket

It will run all through the month of March. The more times you post, the more chances you have of winning this cute bag full of fun stuff. :the fun stuff is not yet decided, but I promise it won't disappoint:

If you live out of state, I will be happy to mail it to you if you are the winner. If you are not yet invited to be an author, let me know in the comments and I will get you invited before March 1st.

New Background

For those of you viewing from a reader, come on over and check out our new background. I am so in love with it, I wish it existed in a shirt.

Breakfast Cassorole

We served these after Libbys blessing. They were a big hit. I had to make 7 of them. They were easy to throw together the night before and very affordable for such a large group. These would work great for Christmas morning.

1lb. Cooked Breakfast Meat-I am usually a ham fan but I liked sausage best in this case
1 Package of Stuffing
6 Eggs
1 Cup Milk
1 Cup Cheese
:extra options:
green onion
bell pepper
green chili
In a large bowl beat the eggs, then mix in the remaining ingredients.
Spray a 9X13 pan with pam
Pour casserole mixture into the pan
Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until the eggs are set up.

Caramel Brownies

Easy Caramel Brownies

1 (18.25 ounce) package German chocolate cake mix with pudding
3/4 cup melted butter
1/3 cup evaporated milk
1 cup chopped pecans
13 ounces individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
1/3 cup evaporated milk
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degreees. Spray one 9x13 inch pan with non-stick coating .
2. Combine the cake mix (just the powder), butter and 1/3 cup evaporated milk. Mix well and pour 2/3 of the batter into pan.
Press pecans into batter and bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the caramel and 1/3 cup evaporated milk. Stir until melted and smooth; pour over cooled cake mix.
Sprinkle chocolate chips on top of caramel and top with spoonfuls of remaining cake mix. Bake for additional l5 to l8 minutes; cool and cut.

*I omitted the pecans and it still turned out great! I also found these bags of caramels at Walmart and they melted really quickly.
