Bacon Crisps

These are sooooooooo yummy. From Paula Deen's cookbook;

Bacon Crisps

1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan Cheese
1 lb. sliced bacon, cut in half
1 sleeve Waverly Wafers or other buttery rectangular cracker

1.Preheat oven to 250*F
2.Place t teaspoon of the cheese on each cracker and wrap tightly with a strip of bacon(no toothpick required!)
3.Place the wrapped crackers on a broiler rack on a baking sheet and put the on the oven rack; Bake for 2 hrs., or until the bacon is done. Do not turn. Drain on paper towels. Serve hot or room temp. Makes 3 dz.

Note: We were a little impatient during our testing and baked at 350*F for about 40 min. with good results. These can be frozen, after cooked. Place the frozen crisps on a baking sheet and reheat for 5 min. @350*F

Rival Crockpot Warning

Our old pal, AZCG, sent us this SNAFU situation. Heed the warning please!!! We want to thank AZCG for taking the time, the effort, to send us a genuine warning, concerning this appliance. This most certainly could be disastrous!

Hey Babs!

I was making chicken stock in my Rival Crockpot the other day and after I finished I was wiping off the exterior of the stainless steel heating unit when the handle completely came apart in my hand. If this had happened when I was moving the slow cooker when it was full I would have been burned. I checked the Internet to see if Rival had any Crockpot recalls and sure enough they did, but my Crockpot was not one that was recalled. The recall was for handles breaking off the heating units -- and other had problems with the plastic lid handles breaking off. I got the Crockpot as a Christmas gift in 2005, but I've used it less than 10 times, so a word to the wise do not lift a full Crockpot by its handles when it is full, and be very careful if you are putting the unit away with the crock insert because the weight of the crock and lid are enough to snap the handles off.
