The O.C. Blog Hop - Carmel Corn & Easy Cheesecake

It's MckLinky Blog Hop time and this week is Favorite Recipes. I remember having this carmel corn when I was little but it has been a very long time since I've had it. My Mom surprised us with this for a 4th of July dessert. Holy Mackrell! I am pretty sure I ate more than anyone else! Enjoy!!

Kathy's Karmel Korn (chewy)
2 1/2 C brown sugar
1 sq real butter
1 can eaglebrand milk (sweetened condensed)
1c white karo syrup
Cook to 200degrees (very soft ball). Pour over popped corn (we used 3 bags of no-butter, no-salt microwave popcorn). Yum Yum Yummy!
I really love desserts. And the easier they are to make the better! Here is another one of my all time favorites.
Best Cheesecake
Make graham-cracker crust with real butter or buy pre-made crust.
Beat together:
1 8oz pkg soft cream cheese
1 can eagle brand milk
1/4 c fresh lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla
1 c sour cream
Fold in one small can drained crushed pineapple. Garnish with mandarine oranges. Refrigerate over night, if possible (if you can wait that long to eat it).

I love caramel corn and the recipe looks good. When you say Eagle Brand milk, are you talking about evaporated or sweetened condensed milk?

I like the look of your blog. It's clean, simple, visually appealing, and easy to navigate.
