Hellooooo Dollies!

December 15, 2008

G’ morning!

Celia Kyle here and the first to kick off Sloane’s series of yummy holliday sharing and I can’t wait to give ya’ll the low down on one of my traditions.

Now, first, you have to recognize what an accomplishment it is for me to even COOK.  Like, ever.  For example, my typical holiday feast consists of a ham from the Honey Baked Ham Company (yes, a company that sells fully cooked hams, woot!), boxed mashed potatoes, boxed stuffing, bottled gravy, canned cranberry sauce and sweet potatoes.

Notice a trend?  Celia, she does not cook.  However, there is always one exception to every rule and for me, that’s Hello Dollies.

Ingredient Group 1:

1 Cup Graham Cracker Crumbs
1/2 stick butter Melted

Ingredient Group 2:

1 1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips – Semisweet
1 Cup Chopped Walnuts
1 Cup Coconut – Shredded
1 Can Eagle Brand Condensed Milk

Combine the Graham Cracker Crumbs and melted Butter, mixing thouroghly and then press into a 9′ x 11′ pan.  Then, sprinkle the ingredients listed in group 2 in the order which they appear above.  First, Chocolate Chips followed by Walnuts and finally the Coconut.  Then, pour the can of condensed milk over it all and press down with a spoon (the back) to make sure it’s all snuggly in there.  Then, bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Voila!  Take one bite and you’ll be shouting “Hello Dolly” right along with me this holiday season.

And for those you who may be as clueless as I was when I started making these… you can buy a box of graham cracker crumbs at the grocery store.  You know, instead of using a plastic bag and rolling pin to crush your own…  Not that I ever did that or anything.  😉

Now if you’d like an interesting holiday cocktail, why not try…

SILK PANTIES

Ingredients
1/2 oz Peach Schnapps
1 1/2 oz Vodka
1 Sexy woman with a penchant for silk

Lisa Bradenton is breaking out of her shell. What better way to take a walk on the wild-one-night-stand-side than a visit to the infamous Del Fantasma? At the urging of her friends, Lisa goes to the bar with the hopes of finding a lover to take her mind off her ex-boyfriend. Soon after walking through the doors she’s overwhelmed by the sexy bartender who has a quick smile, sexy eyes and deep rumbling voice. He is definitely one-night stand material. Definitely.

Jonathan and his inner beast crave the sexy, sultry and curvy siren’s touch. A smile and good conversation aren’t enough for him. Even after he’s gotten her in his bed, he still craves everything about the seductress. Her looks reeled him in, but her uncertainty and open nature snare him forever. But after one night of bliss, she disappears. What the hell is he supposed to do now? Lisa is his mate and without her, he’s lost.

Happy holidays!!!!
