Holiday Recap in Photos

  We had a lovely holiday!  Everyone ate goodies until they couldn't move.

Mr. Backwoods as proof.

We joined friends to make use of new toys, where my camera was kidnapped.

He didn't understand my "fancy camera", hehe, hence the blur.

Then it was subsequently used against me.

We played new Wii games until no one could move their limbs.
Eventually I regained possession of the camera.

And the critters all had fun, too.

And by popular request, the recipe for the Rolo Pretzel Turtles.

Heat oven to 300 degrees.
Place pretzels on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or non-stick foil.
Place one rolo candy on top of each pretzel.
Place in oven for 4 minutes until rolo gets soft.
Smush a pecan on top of each.
Place cookie sheet in fridge until chocolate and caramel re-hardens.
Pull off cookie sheet liner and stuff face until sick.

These are the easiest thing I have ever made, and they were gobbled up the fastest this year.  I found out about these from the pod on NSBR last year, but they just seemed to simple to be that good.  Boy was I wrong!



  1. Gorgeous photos and a great recipe! TFS!

  2. Great photos! I love the rolo pretzel treats! We usually put an m&m on top instead of the pecan.

  3. love the ornament shot! must do that someday!

  4. I love the reflection in the ornament, and it looks like you have some tasty treats on your blog! Will have to try the rolo candy and pretzel thing. . . if I can ever move again after eating all these Christmas treats!
