Christmas Salad

•1 (6-0z.) raspberry Jell-O
• cup boiling water
•1 (20-oz) can crushed undrained pineapple
•1 can of whole cranberry sauce
•1 cup pecans

Top with:
•1 (8-oz.) pkg. cream cheese
• cup sugar
•1 cup sour cream
• cup chopped pecans

I’ve got the first layer jelling in the fridge already. I took one six ounce package of raspberry Jell-O and stirred it up with a cup boiling water, a can of crushed an undrained pineapple, a can of cranberry sauce and a cup of pecans.

Now, we’re gonna make our topping. We’ll take an 8-ounce package of softened cream cheese and blend it with a cup of sour cream, a fourth cup of sugar and a cup of chopped pecans. Then we’ll layer this cream cheese mixture over the Jell-O and slide the whole thing back in the refrigerator until we’re ready to eat.

Christmas Snackin' Crackers

• 1 Box of saltine crackers (with four stacks)
• 2 Cups Canola Oil
• 1 package Ranch dressing mix
• 1 tablespoon red pepper
• 1 tablespoon garlic powder

This recipe is just as about as simple as it gets. First, measure two cups of Canola Oil into a small mixing bowl. Then, add in 1 package of Ranch dressing mix, one tablespoon of red pepper, and one tablespoon of garlic powder. Stir this together well and pour it over a whole carton of regular saltine crackers that you've placed in a good-sized plastic bowl. With your hands or a large spoon, turn the crackers several times to help make sure that the coating reaches them all. Cover the bowl with a lid that fits real snuggly because you're gonna want to turn it occasionally while the crackers are absorbing the seasoned oil. This also works well with a plastic bag, just don't break the crackers. It takes about a day to a day and a half for the absorption to complete.
