Caramel Bottom Eggnog Cheesecake #SundaySupper

We are expecting our first substantial snow fall here today in Southwestern Michigan.  How exciting!  I feel like the holiday can finally get under way.  I’ve strung the lights up outside, put up the tree, hit the Amazon Cyber Monday deals.  We are way ahead of schedule this year and only have a few presents left to get so that means in not too long I have to do one task that I don’t particular like about Christmas-wrapping presents.  I’ll be honest, I suck at it! However one tradition that I have kind of makes it easy to get through, I enjoy a big glass of eggnog while doing it.  That creamy concoction mixed with a little spiced rum….yummy!  Makes the fact that I cannot make even a shirt box look presentable a little less stinging. But I’ve never had ‘nog any other way….so I decided to try something different.

Caramel Bottom Eggnog Cheesecake from Bottom Left of the Mitten

In order to let everyone this holiday season enjoy eggnog I decided to use it in a method that is quickly becoming one of my favorite ways to cook ~ no bake cheesecake.  A no bake cheesecake can be changed up to suite the needs of any occasion.  Have a picnic? Make my Chocolate Bottom Strawberry Cheesecake.  Need a quick dessert for a football cookout?  Whip up a Butterscotch Bottom Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake.  Easy, fast, versatile and more importantly~delicious!  This Caramel Bottom Eggnog Cheesecake with Ginger Snap Crust is a winner for the holidays.  And did you see that I said ‘easy’?  Check out the video showing how quickly it comes together.

Dessert is made.  So now you can get back to wrapping all those presents.  I hope you are better at it than I am! And here you are……Caramel Bottom Eggnog Cheesecake from Bottom Left of the Mitten

Swedish Pancakes with Brown Sugar Bananas #SundaySupper

I’ve mentioned before, my Dad is a great cook.  I remember the first time he let me make Swedish Pancakes during the holidays.  Boy, was I important!  I got to mix the batter. Grease the pan. Learned how to move the pan just right to make sure the pancake is thin and crispy.  While the recipe may have changed over time making these reminds me of how proud I was making these pancakes for the first time.  Now I might have to pass this recipe for Swedish Pancakes with Brown Sugar Bananas to my Dad!

Swedish Pancakes with Brown Sugar Bananas from Bottom Left of the Mitten

When I think of sleepovers it really takes me back to my youth.  My friends and I doing our hair, dancing to music, gossiping of course!  It seemed like every weekend we were at one house or another us gaggle of girls.  I think that I’m most proud of the fact that those girls are still my closest friends.  If we were staying at my house Sunday’s meant big breakfasts and Swedish Pancakes were always my favorite.  This is my updated version now that I’m the one hosting the sleepovers for my boys.  So put on the coffee and start cooking.

Swedish Pancakes with Brown Sugar Bananas | Bottom Left of the Mitten

Mix all the pancake ingredients in a bowl.  It’s important to keep the bowl next to the stove with a ladle.  With a mid-sized skillet add a small dab of oil to the pan.  You can see my setup here.  Also make sure that you have a plate to add your pancakes to.  They cook quickly!

Swedish Pancakes with Brown Sugar Bananas from Bottom Left of the Mitten

From there you will add a ladle full of batter then spin the pan in a rotating fashion to thin it out.  Cook for 1-2 minutes.  Flip and cook around 30 seconds for the second side.  I posted a video on my Instagram awhile ago on how to move the pan.

Next is the sauce, which is so easy! Chop the bananas.  Add butter to a pan and start to melt.  Add brown sugar then bananas.  Let cook for around another minute then add the water cinnamon and nutmeg.  Take off heat, your done.  What I want to point out is the ‘roll’.  But I digress. I have a helpful little photo tutorial below for the ‘roll’.  Fill the center of the pancake, hook fork into the side and ‘roll’.

Chunky Applesauce Cheesecake

Ah, Fall! You are finally here! We are cooling down this week after an extended heat wave and I am so happy.  The heat, humidity and mosquitoes have been bad here in Southwest Michigan so I am ready to start seeing the leaves fall, breathe in the cool crisp air and enjoy all that this beautiful state has to offer for the season.  I also cant wait to share you with you one of my favorite fall desserts, Chunky Applesauce Cheesecake.

Chunky Applesauce Cheesecake from Bottom Left of the Mitten

I call this ‘Chunky Applesauce’ because this is the applesauce recipe that I make for my family.  If I have a few apples laying around I will whip this up as a side for dinner.  And since I honesty cannot resist a cheesecake this is a great dessert that combines two of my favorite things.  So gather your ingredients….

Chuny Applesauce Cheesecake from Bottom Left of the Mitten

If you wanted to just make the applesauce like I do, you would just use this step alone.  I’m sure your family will love it, it’s perfect with a pork roast and mashed potatoes.  Now on to the applesauce.  Set up a cutting board next to a pot and cube your apples.  Put them into the pot and add salt, vanilla, butter, corn starch, cinnamon, nutmeg and apple juice.  Stir to combine and bring to a boil cooking for around 10 minutes.  Take off the heat and set aside to cool while the crust and cheesecake filling are prepared.

For the crust crush graham crackers and mix with butter and sugar.  Pat down into the bottom of a greased spring form pan.  In a mixing bowl combine the cheese cake ingredients: cream cheese, sugar, brown sugar and cool whip.  Mix with electric mixer until all combined.  Once the applesauce has cooled down a bit add to the top of the graham cracker crust.  On top of that add the cheesecake mixture.

Let the cheesecake refrigerate for 4-6 hours.  And here you are….

Crock Pot Ranch Pork Roast with Mushroom Gravy

This is one of my favorite meals to make for my boys. For me, one of my true joys is making them a meal that has them leaving the dinner table full & happy. With Mother’s Day this week I thought this is a perfect meal to share, Crock Pot Ranch Pork Roast with Mushroom Gravy. If you are in charge of dinner this week you can just put this is the Crock Pot and let it do all the work while you relax.

Sadly, when I started this recipe I completely forgot to take a beginning picture of the ingredients for the roast before I started! So here are the ingredients:

1 Pork Loin Roast (I get mine as a 4 pack at Costco for around $13 and they are amazing!)
1 pkg. Dry Ranch Dressing
1/4 Cup Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 Cup Soy Sauce
2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
2 Cup Water

Mix all ingredients together. Pour on top of pork. Easy! Once that is all in just cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Crock Pot Ranch Pork Roast

When you are about to put dinner on the table make your Mushroom Gravy to go over top of this. I’m telling you, it’s worth the extra step.

To a pan add 1/4 cup butter, 1 small yellow onion and 1 pkg pre-sliced mushrooms. Sautee until cooked down.

Mushroom

While this is cooking in a small bowl add 1 Tbs. flour & 1 Tbs. Cornstarch. To this you will take some liquid from your crock pot roast. I usually do about 2 ladle full which is about 1 cup. Stir to combine.

Mushroom Gravy
Now you will add the Flour/Cornstarch mixture to the onions & mushrooms. Cook until thick like gravy.

Mushroom Gravy
So rich & creamy. Perfect to top off this delicious roast.

Ranch Pork Roast

With this I make Homemade Applesauce. It is so easy you won’t bother with the jar stuff anymore! It’s as easy as chopping up 2-3 red apples. Put them in a pan with orange juice, 1 Tbs. cornstarch, 1 Tbs. cinnamon and 1 Tbs. butter. Cover and cook on medium heat for 10 minutes. The apples come out perfect!

Applesauce

Roast up some asparagus and mash some potatoes to complete this meal. And here you are…..
