I adore Paula Deen! I've been watching her since "Paulas Home Cooking" premiered on the Food Netwok.My middle daughter always watches her with me whenever she's on and it's become a sort of "bonding time" for us.We've whipped up so many of her recipes and I just love that time that she and I spend together.Well,when I saw this.......
I knew I had to get it for her for Christmas!This will actually be the 2nd cookbook I've gotten for her but I think she'll really love this one. I glanced through it a bit and found this yummy recipe.It would be fun to make with the kids or for a Halloween party.
Recipe c/o Paula Deen~
What you’ll need:
dry measuring cup measuring spoons medium glass bowl large spoon teaspoon waxed paper resealable plastic bags or plastic storage container with tight fitting lid Ingredients: 1 cup butterscotch Morsels 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter 1 cup dry roasted peanuts 1 cup chow mein noodles Directions: 1. Put the butterscotch morsels and peanut butter into the mixing bowl. Microwave on high power for 1 minute, remove the bowl, and stir. butterscotch morsels should melt as you stir, but if they don't, don't worry! Just put them back in the microwave for 15 seconds more and stir again. 2. When the butterscotch is completely melted and smooth, stir in the peanuts and chow mein noodles. is will be stiff and you may need an adult to help you . Use a teaspoon to scoop out a little of the mixture and mound it on to the waxed paper. These should look like haystacks. 3. Let them stand at room temperature until they are set. is will take 45 minutes to an hour. Store in resealable plastic bags or a plastic storage container with a tight fitting lid. *makes 20 to 24 small haystacks
I'm a stay at home Christian mom of 7 kids ranging in age from 19 down to 6. I am truly a country girl at heart and hope to someday move to a small farm out in nowhere :) I love my family and my husband,I love to cook and try new recipes~mostly down home style food I ate growing up.
If you want a glimpse of Southern life,Come close and walk with me;I'll tell you all the simple things,That you are sure to see.You'll see mockingbirds and bumblebees,Magnolia blossoms and dogwood trees;
Caterpillars on the step,Wooden porches cleanly swept;Watermelons on the vine, Strong majestic Georgia pines Rocking chairs and front yard swingsJunebugs flying on a stringTurnip greens and hotcornbread,Coleslaw and barbecueFried okra, fried corn,fried green tomatoes,Fried pies and pickles too.
There's ice cold tea that 's syrupy sweet,And cool, green grass beneath your feet;Catfish nipping in the lake,And fresh young boys on the make.You'll see all these thingsAnd much, much more,In a way of life, that I adore.
