Warm Caramel Pilar Santos Bananas. Pilar was such a pretty girl with a warm heart. However, she had Carmen as a mother. Eventually, poor Pilar had a nervous break down. So, one might say she was a little nuts or went bananas. Either way, this dessert fits her pretty well. Have not made this yet. I think this would be a good one for my 15 year old daughter and her friend to try. The two are not very good at cooking—but this sound easy, with a mom looking over their steps!!
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
1/3 Cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/3 Cup of Sour Cream
2 medium bananas, peeled
½ Cup of Dry Roasted Peanuts
1 Square Baker’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted
½ thawed Whipped Topping
Melt the butter in large skillet on medium heat. Add sugar; cook until melted, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low. Gradually add sour cream; cook 1 min. cut the bananas in half lengthwise and crosswise creating 4 half slices each. Add banana slices, cut sides down, and peanuts to skillet. Cook 1 min. or until bananas are evenly coated and tender, basting occasionally with sauce. Spoon the bananas evenly into 4 dessert dishes; top with remaining sauce in skillet. Drizzle chocolate on top of bananas. Top each evenly with whipped topping.

Tangie Hill Turtle Brownie Cookies. Tangie was just a filler and slow storyline to get us back to Josh and Reva. I never made these, but one my husband and daughter would love.
COOKIES:
• No-Stick Cooking Spray
• 1/2 cup Alll Purpose Flour
• 1 (19.25 oz.) pkg. Traditional Fudge Brownie mix
• 1/2 cup water
• 1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
• 1 large egg
• 2 cups pecan halves, split lengthwise

FROSTING:
• 22 vanilla caramels, unwrapped
• 1 to 2 tbsps. water
• 2 tsps. powdered sugar
Directions
HEAT oven to 350 degrees F. Spray cookie sheets with no-stick cooking spray. Combine flour, brownie mix, water, oil and egg in large bowl; blend well. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheets. Arrange 5 pecan pieces under each to resemble head and legs of turtle.
BAKE 8 to 12 minutes or until top of cookies appear almost set. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Cool 2 minutes or until completely cooled.
COMBINE caramels and 1 tablespoon water in small saucepan; cook and stir over low heat until melted and smooth, adding enough additional water for desired drizzling consistency. Stir in powdered sugar until smooth. Spoon over cookies. Let stand until frosting is set. Store cookies between sheets of waxed paper in tightly covered container.

Oh Rosie, if I had a plate of these I would be dangerous. It may sound crazy, but I can almost taste these. It is that time of the afternoon, you know when you need a pick me up, and these would be perfect. I might just have to make a trip to the store and pick up some brownie mix.

Gin and Sin: this is for all resident and guest of Springfield. I think it is for all of us on the GL message board too :-)
2 oz dry gin
3tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. caster sugar
1tbsp. heavy cream
½ rose water
Club soda
Shake well with ice. Strain into a tall glass filled with ice cubes. Add soda water to taste and stir.
For those like me who have no idea what Caster sugar is, I looked it up. It is a fine grind of sugar which is used by bartenders and bakers, among others, for its quick dissolving properties. It is also sometimes seen spelled as castor sugar, and it may be labeled as “superfine sugar” as well. Much like regular table sugar, caster sugar can come in both refined and unrefined forms.

Of course with tomorrow being St. Paddy’s day, I had to have one of the Readon’s family recipe. Now, my hubby would call this a waste of good whiskey, but after my last experience with Jim Beam Black, I would rather consume it as bread----yea, I will leave it at that! Luck of the Irish to ya all!
Reardon’s Family Irish Whiskey Muffins.
• 2 cups all-purpose flour
• 2 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/3 cup white sugar
• 2 teaspoons Irish cream liqueur (such as Baileys®)
• 2 teaspoons Irish whiskey
• 7 fluid ounces milk, or as needed
• 1 egg
• 1/2 cup butter, melted
• Directors
• Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
• Grease 12 muffin cups.
• Stir together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a bowl.
• Mix Irish cream liqueur and Irish whiskey in a 1-cup measure.
• Pour milk into same measuring cup for a total of 8 fluid ounces.
• Whisk together egg, milk mixture, and butter in a bowl.
• Gently stir liquid ingredients into dry ingredients until just moistened. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
• Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 20 minutes.

PS----If you have a facebook acount(I do not yet) you can get a BOGO Ruben at Arby's in honor of St. Patrick's day. Great if you want to have lunch with a friend!

Thanks so much Rosie. It's so cute. Our family has baked a bunny cake every year at Easter since my boys were little. It is a tradition for us. Hope all is well.
