Crockpot Pineapple Moonshine

1 56 oz can pineapple juice
2 c. sugar
1 bottle Everclear grain alcohol or vodka

Add pineapple juice and sugar to crock-pot.  Cook on LOW for 2 hours with lid slightly ajar.
Allow mixture to cool completely before adding in Alcohol.  Add in alcohol and mix well.
Pour mixture into 4 Quart Canning Jars or a large jug with lid. Store in a cool dry place. Serve over ice. 

I used an orange pineapple apple juice blend.  This was VERY strong! I added another bottle of the orange pineapple juice and then it was delicious.

Peanut Butter Puff Corn


Two 3½ oz bags puffcorn
¾ cup butter
¼ cup peanut butter
1¼ cup brown sugar
⅔ cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon baking soda

Pour puffcorn into a large, greased roasting pan. Put butter, peanut butter, brown sugar and light corn syrup in a large saucepan (mixture will bubble up so it has to be big). Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add baking soda and mixture will foam up. Pour mixture over puffcorn and stir to coat. Bake at 250 degrees for 45 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Remove from oven, pour onto waxed paper and break into pieces.

Although it takes a little time to make this due to the stirring every 10 minutes, it is totally worth it! This is sweet and delicious with a bit of crunch.

Sausage balls

What do you take to a brunch potluck when the host is already making the egg bakes and you’re a little short on time?  After perusing Pinterest I found this handy recipe and decided to give it a try.

1 lb. ground pork sausage, cooked (NOT drained)
2 cups Bisquick
2 cups shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, combine cooked sausage, Bisquick and shredded cheese. Form into walnut size balls and place on baking sheets.  Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes, until golden brown. (makes approx. 36 balls) 

I made these in the morning and then threw them in the crockpot on warm for the brunch.  They were easy to make, simple ingredients and tasted great.
