Coconut Macaroons {An Easy and Tasty Recipe using Eagle Brand Condensed Milk}

Coconut Macaroons are an elegant cookie, yet easy and almost effortless to make.  This classic macaroon is made with a few ingredients, sweetened condensed milk, coconut, and egg whites.    Whisk everything together and scoop them out on a baking sheet.   How easy is that?   They are wonderfully delicious!   The traditional macaroon has been around for eons.   I think it is my favorite, but who says you can't mess with perfection and place a chocolate kiss in the center to make Macaroon Kisses.   Or dip the bottom in chocolate and drizzle chocolate over the top, or even add a cherry in the center to make them look cute.  Hope you enjoy the recipe!   Merry Christmas !

Stew in a Pumpkin {Baked and served in a pumpkin}

Baked Pumpkin Stew  is a flavorful beef stew cooked and served in a sugar pie pumpkin. When serving, raise the ladle up with the stew scraping the sides of the pumpkin being sure to get a generous serving of pumpkin.     A true taste of Fall! To celebrate the Fall, pumpkin is so hot these days, and almost anything can be made with it.  When I grew up in the 60s, pumpkin pie and pumpkin bread were the most popular recipes to make. These days that is not the case.
