Homemade Marshmallows I
My first attempt was with the recipe in half. Don't do that! The gelatin set up too much and then caused lumps. I also did not get the sugar mixture hot enough, second mistake. So, my second attempt, I made full recipe and used a new candy thermometer. Followed directions much more closely, with vanilla added. Turned out great! I put mine in a 8x8 pan and have "jumbo" (tall) mallows. I'm anxious to keep playing with this recipe; different flavors, add color, use cookie cutters, etc!

Grandma's Peach French Toast
This is a good recipe to make your own. I tried it mostly as written, and like the idea of the brown sugar/butter combo for the bottom. Next time, though, I think I will mix the peaches with the bread (which I cubed), along with more fruit (I added blueberries too). (and yes, add milk!) Also, I like more spice, so I will definitely use more cinnamon along with other spices for more pizzazz. I had nice compliments and will make it again and continue to play with the options.

Sugar Coated Pecans
I doubled the recipe and tweaked it the first time I made it by using double the cinnamon and pinches of cloves and allspice. That was not enough spice for me! Even though I received nice compliments on the nuts, I felt I only tasted nuts and no spice. So, for the second batch I made, I increased the spice! I didn't officially measure anything, but approximately 3+ tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp cloves, 1 tsp allspice, and 1 tsp ginger. Even with the increases of the spices, I think the outcome is still 'light' spice. In this second batch, I did a double of the pecans, and then another batch of almonds. The almonds were fine, but I like how the nooks/crannies of the pecans hold the sugar/spice better! Otherwise, I had no problems making them; I baked them on parchment paper and that made for easy clean up! Looking forward to giving these away as Christmas treats!
