Welcome to our final podcast before the end of 2017. Please note that Mystic Access closes for the holidays at the end of day Wednesday, December 20, and we reopen again on Wednesday, January 3, 2018. Orders for hardware and SD cards will be shipped out to you as quickly as possible during this period, but please know that, like you, we’re celebrating our midwinter holidays, too. Thanks for your understanding. It’s been a pleasure to serve you this year.
In today’s episode, Kim is celebrating a very special occasion… listen to find out more.
Chris begins by discussing his experience installing Windows 10 on a blank solid state drive with Narrator and Cortana. Then he demonstrates his [amazon text=Cook’s Essentials air fryer,&asin=b073bpx152]which he uses all the time, and finds beautifully accessible.
Next, Kim and Lisa put on their aprons to share some yummy, and easy holiday recipes with you.
Kim’s Mom’s Sausage Balls
My mom, Barbara, has been making this recipe for as long as I can remember, and I began helping in the preparations ever since I was big enough to reach a flat surface. 🙂
- One pound hot sausage
- three cups Bisquick pancake and baking mix
- two cups sharp cheddar cheese
Let all ingredients reach room temperature, then combine sausage and cheese… mix well.
Add Bisquick, combine and mix well.
Roll into small (walnut sized) balls and bake at 380 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
May be baked and frozen.
Lisa’s Grandmother’s Cheese Log
- 2 pk Cream cheese — softened
- 8 oz Natural shredded cheddar
- 1 TB Chopped red bell pepper
- 1 TB Finely chopped green onion
- 2 tsp Worchestershire sauce
- 1 tsp Lemon juice
Mix all ingredients thoroughly with your hands or a mixer, and chill.
Roll into two or three logs, then add in finely chopped pecans or walnuts. Wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Microwave Chocolate Fudge
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 12-oz bag of semisweet chocolate chips (can also use milk chocolate)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Combine chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for one minute, then let sit for one minute. Mix well.
To get all your chocolate melted and well-combined, heat again on 30-second intervals, mixing after each one until everything is creamy and well-combined.
Add in vanilla extract, mix again.
Pour into shallow pan and refrigerate until the fudge sets up… this takes a couple of hours. Remove and cut into small squares. Enjoy.
Mystic Access wishes you and yours a wonderful, safe and happy holiday season.
