Lucky Rice Crispie Treats

Lucky Rice Crispie Treats

I am feeling very lucky today…or should I say blessed!  Last week my email was hacked into and I was wiped out for a few days!  The hacker managed to wipe out all of my contacts and I could not receive any emails.  I could send them out but was unable to receive any!  Through a series of many trial things, I was finally blessed to find a cute, sweet girl at the Outlook Store in the mall.  She was able to find the help we needed through a tech guy.  Together they found the problem and were able to restore all of my contacts again!  So as I said I am feeling very blessed now!

To celebrate, I thought that I would make some Lucky Rice Crispie Treats!  Don’t you think that is fitting?lucky rice crispie treats Continue reading

on Monday, Oct. 8th at 10 am.  I would love for you to join me and watch the tutorial of how to put these cute little babies together!

But for all my readers, here is the tutorial for you to make an “Eye” Candy Jar like these that we made at our craft retreat. They are so easy to make and yet are so darling!  The thing that I love about these jars is that you can eat the candy after the holiday is done and then fill it up again for the next holiday!  Apparently they make “Peeps” for most every holiday!  Something that I didn’t  know because I don’t like to eat them.

Better Than “Hunting” Chex Mix

There is a story behind this title…

a while back one of my DIL’s brought dessert for dinner on a Sunday get together and when they arrived at our house, she told her oldest son (age 9) to tell me what they had brought for dessert.  He declared: “Better than Hunting Cake!”  (Remember, that this is our little hunter!)  Well, we all got a good laugh out of that and we all knew what the real name of the cake was, but he thought that was the real name.  He has a smart mom to avoid that topic!  So anyway here is a version of Chex Mix that is called Better Than Sex Hunting Chex Mix that is to die for.  You have to be careful because this one is soooo addicting!  It is a combination of chocolatey, sweet, salty, peanut butter, and marshmellowy bliss!
