Default Yummy Food pictures from my holidayparty -Yes Houston, it's in here!

As always, my holiday party is always fun and food filled....this year was no exception and the treats were in a plenty!!!!!



A quick looksie at our dessert table - can you believe all these treats???? let me tell you, leftovers were AMAZING!!!!!!



A MOUNTAIN of Little Debbie Snacks created by SuperMishe - AKA Michelle - and in the background, you can see my little snowmen I made. Nutterbutter cookies dipped in white chocolate with Mini-Chips for eyes and buttons, a Peanut Butter Hershey Kiss for a hat and Pretzles for arms. YUM!



This is my famous Hummingbird Cake - I got the recipe from Paula Deen when she was on the Martha Stewart show. It's KIND of like a Carrot Cake, but no carrots - LOL, Bananas, Pinapple, cinnamon and Pecans, LOTS of Pecans - On top too as you can see with home-made Cream Cheese Frosting! Holy CRAP it's good!




This is AnnMarie's AMAZING Cheesecake! Despite it being DROPPED when my dogs jumped all over her when she arrived, we managed to make it look good as new! This is the lightest, fluffiest, yummiest cheesecake ever with Ladyfingers for a crust in a spring foam pan! I think I could eat a VAT of the filling if I had a vat....and a spoon that is!



My Friend Cindy made these - not Cindy G, a Different Cindy, and her chocolate chip peanut butter cup cookies are ALWAYS a hit with Heather especially! The others are pretzles with a Rolo melted on top and topped with a pecan. You can (and I did) eat these like Potato Chips! You can't stop at one!

Enjoy the pictures!

Hugs,

Deidra

yay, my cheesecake!!! It lives on in pictures.

Man that's a great cheesecake, I may have to make one again before long. Great thing is it's just as much a summer dessert as winter, it's very versatile.



Thanks for sharing the pics, Deeds, brings me right back to picking at that treats table.

Default Hummingbird Cake Recipe

For the Cake:
Nonstick vegetable spray

All-purpose flour, for pans

3 cups self-rising flour - YOU MUST use the self rising flour! Trust me!

2 cups granulated sugar

3/4 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup finely chopped pecans

2 very ripe large bananas, mashed

One 8-ounce can crushed pineapple, with juice

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

4 large eggs, beaten

For the frosting:

Two 1-pound box confectioners' sugar

Two 8-ounce package cream cheese, room temperature

12 tablespoons (1-1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened

2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

2 tablespoon half and half or cream, or more if needed

1/2 cup finely chopped pecans

1. Preheat oven to 325. Spray and flour three 8-by-2-inch round cake pans, tapping out excess flour; set aside. (you can use two 9 inch cake pans)

2. Prepare the cake; in a large bowl, stir to combine self-rising flour, sugar, oil, pecans, bananas, pineapple, vanilla, cinnamon, and eggs.

3. Divide batter evenly between prepared pans, smoothing with an offset spatula. Bake, rotating pans halfway through, until the tops spring back when gently pressed with your fingertips, 26 to 28 minutes.

4. Transfer pans to a wire rack to cool 10 minutes. Invert cakes onto wire rack. Re-invert cakes and let them cool completely, top sides up.

5. Prepare the frosting; in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine sugar, cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and 1 tablespoon milk on medium speed until frosting is smooth. If needed, add more milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, to achieve the proper spreading consistency.

Default Snowman and Pecan Pretzle things Recipe

For the Snowmen:

Nutterbutter cookies
White Chocolate
Pretzle Sticks
MINI-chocolate chips
Orange GEL Cake Decorating tube thing
Hershey Kisses any kind...I used Peanut Butter.

Melt the white chocolate and dip the Nutterbutter cookies in and when they come out, put them on Wax or Parchment paper -

Immediately, put mini chips to make eyes and buttons down his front. NO MOUTH - dip pretzles in chocolate and "glue" to sides of snowman for arms, dip Kiss in chocolate at the bottom and then "glue" it to the top of the snowman's head and then use the orange gel tube stuff and dot on a carrot nose.

Presto - You're done.

BE CAREFUL when storing them. Many of my snowmen became amputees and lost limbs!


__________________________________________________ ______

Pretzle nubbie things;

Bag of SQUARE flat pretzle things
Rolos Candy
Whole Pecans


Lay out a crap load of pretzle squares on a baking sheet lined with parchement or wax paper.

Put an unwrapped rolo on each one

Put in 325 oven for 3 min.

Remove, Stick Pecan in the Rolo and press down.

Poof. You're done.

2 very ripe large bananas, mashed

One 8-ounce can crushed pineapple, with juice

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

4 large eggs, beaten

For the frosting:

Two 1-pound box confectioners' sugar

Two 8-ounce package cream cheese, room temperature

12 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, softened

2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

2 tablespoon half and half or cream, or more if needed

1/2 cup finely chopped pecans

1. Preheat oven to 325. Spray and flour three 8-by-2-inch round cake pans, tapping out excess flour; set aside. (you can use two 9 inch cake pans)

2. Prepare the cake; in a large bowl, stir to combine self-rising flour, sugar, oil, pecans, bananas, pineapple, vanilla, cinnamon, and eggs.

3. Divide batter evenly between prepared pans, smoothing with an offset spatula. Bake, rotating pans halfway through, until the tops spring back when gently pressed with your fingertips, 26 to 28 minutes.

4. Transfer pans to a wire rack to cool 10 minutes. Invert cakes onto wire rack. Re-invert cakes and let them cool completely, top sides up.

5. Prepare the frosting; in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine sugar, cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and 1 tablespoon milk on medium speed until frosting is smooth. If needed, add more milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, to achieve the proper spreading consistency.

Deidra - 3/4 of a stick of butter is 6 tablespoons - can you confirm how much we should use? I want to make this cake!! Thanks!
