crisply fried flour tortilla wedges sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar

Cinnamon Tortilla Crisps

These Cinnamon Crisps, as we call them, have been a staple in our family whenever I make Mexican food. I still make then occasionally for my hubby and myself now that the kids are grown. They make a great snack or quick, easy dessert. I used low carb whole wheat tortillas for the picture shown here, but regular flour tortillas are what we normally use. Watch me make Cinnamon Tortilla Crisps these LIVE on my…... view full recipe

Chocolate and peanut butter coated rice cereal squares coated with powdered sugar.

Puppy Chow

I have been making this Puppy Chow, aka Muddy Buddies, since my kids were little and it's always devoured. My girls now make it with their kids. It's fun to get the kids to help make it along with you. After mixing everything together in the bowl (part 1) I put it in a paper grocery bag and put the powdered sugar in (part 2) and let the kids "shake it up". They love that…... view full recipe

Chocolate covered peanut clusters on a white plate

Chocolate Peanut Clusters

I love peanut clusters, but the problem is they are addicting. When we used to visit my mother-in-law in Virginia she lived about 20 minutes from the Virginia Peanut Company store. We would always make a trip there and I would get the largest tin of chocolate covered peanuts. I would have to ration them because I could easily be naughty and eat the whole tin at once. They are really easy to make and…... view full recipe

creamy peanut butter balls dipped in dark chocolate on a white plate

Peanut Butter Balls

Do you love Reese's Peanut Butter Cups? I sure do! These Peanut Butter Balls are even better than the famous candy, and fun to make. I will warn you though, they are addicting! You can make Buckeyes the same way, just dip the balls about 3/4 of the way up in the melted chocolate and set to dry with exposed peanut butter on top. This recipe, and 499 others, can be found in our cookbook…... view full recipe

white candy with crispy chow mein noodles, salted peanuts and green, white and red sprinkles on a red and black checkered plate

White Ting-A-Lings

This easy no-bake White Ting-A-Lings candy, sometimes known as white haystacks, is a hit with kids and adults alike over the holidays (or year round). It only uses 3 ingredients (4 if you add sprinkles). They literally take about 15 minutes to make, so easy! And you can change up the ingredients if you want too. Try adding dried cranberries and chopped pistachios instead of the peanuts for a festive color. You can find recipes…... view full recipe

Golden Yellow Caramel Popcorn

Caramel Corn

I have been making this Caramel Corn since my children were little. We didn't celebrate Halloween when they were growing up (I know, horrors! yes, that was a pun, and I don't do them that often! haha!), but didn't want them to think it was a punishment, so we always had yummy snacks that I would make, including this Caramel Popcorn, and we would have movie night (no scary movies though, I still don't like…... view full recipe

Pecans coated with sugar and cinnamon

Cinnamon Glazed Pecans

I have been making these sugared pecans since my kids were little. They were a favorite with everyone, especially my son. I would have to ration them and put out just a small bowl at a time or they would all be gone in less than an hour if I didn't. They are still a favorite, and so easy to make! I always make them over the Christmas holiday and put them in this cute…... view full recipe
