Christmas Holly Clusters

1/2 stick butter
1 bag Kraft  marshmallows
1/2 tsp. green food coloring (or as much as you like to get desired color)
4 1/2 c. cornflakes
Red Hots (red cinnamon candies)

Melt butter in saucepan on low heat. As the butter begins to melt, add the marshmallows. Stir constantly. Add the green food coloring when the marshmallows are mostly melted. Stir until melted. Turn off heat. Add cornflakes and stir until they are coated. Drop a spoonful of cornflakes on waxed paper and press 3 red cinnamon candies on each cluster. Let dry about one hour. Makes about 30. You might want to double this recipe. Eat them up, yum!

**I use the microwave for this recipe, too.  Microwave butter and marshmallows on high for about 2 minutes.  Stir. Then microwave for another minute or so.  Add food coloring and proceed from there.  It helps to have an assistant put the red hots on while you are trying to get the cookies off the spoon and your hands as you go!

Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes

Go HERE for this recipe! It's fantastic! I use home ground whole wheat, but store bought should be just fine, too. Use very ripe bananas for the best result--lots of brown spots. 1 batch made 15 small/medium pancakes. I like to add a little more milk to thin it a little.
