Belley and I had a few days together last week while mom and dad had a little get-away. We were going to meet Amie, Ellie and some friends at the zoo so we made up some trail mix for a snack. Annie’s Snicker Doodle Bunnies (delicious & from Target), mini-marshmallows, raisins, Easter colored M&M’s and some Pink Princess Goldfish.
And if you’re making Bunnie Trailmix for your friends, you must have cute Bunny Snack Bags!
It’s that time of year again!!! Buy local “unfiltered” honey for your allergies- start NOW! One teaspoon/tablespoon every day, besides being delicious you have the extra benefit of keeping your allergies at bay! Andddd yes, those are pigs – salt & pepper shakers, thank you Tara!
The BEST “Artichoke Dip” Ever!
1 8oz. Block – Philadelphia Cream Cheese
1 cup Best Foods/Hellman’s Mayonnaise
1 can artichoke hearts, drained & chopped
(not marinated hearts)
1 small can chopped Ortega green chilies
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
(I use Kraft 3-Blend Cheese in the refrigerator section)
Mix together and bake uncovered @ 350 degrees for about 30-45 minutes or until a little golden on top. Best served with Triscuits!
Found ‘um!!! And they are yummy!!! Was hoping for some bubbles when it hit my tongue . . . but nevertheless sooooo creamy and yummy!
I went to the grocery store last week and this sign made me chuckle. It’ll be 24 years, this year, since I moved to Colorado and full strength beer (beer only) is NOW available in grocery stores! Previously only “3.2 beer” was sold which means the alcohol strength was only 3.2%. So I could go to the liquor store and buy Blue Moon with 5.4% or be lazy and pick it up at the grocery store with 3.2%. That changed as of January 1, 2019, however, wine and spirits won’t be available in Colorado grocery stores until 2037. So crazy, lol.
CARDAMOM WHITE HOT CHOCOLATE by Trisha Yearwood
I actually made this a few times during the holidays and wanted to share it with you. This is super simple and super YUMMY! The cardamom spice is used with Chai Lattes sooooo if you like those, you’ll love this! Snow is coming tomorrow . . . so I’ll probably be making this again! It’s the perfect compliment to a snowy, cold day!
1 1/4 cups white chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
3 1/2 cups whole milk (I used 2%)
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Put the white chips, cardamom and 1 cup milk into a medium saucepan. Heat over medium-high heat whisking often, until smooth. Add the heavy cream and remaining 2 1/2 cups milk and heat, stirring occasionally, until hot. Stir in the vanilla. Serve – makes about 4 cups. Enjoy!!
When you want something for dessert and you’re out of cookies! Hot Chocolate & Irish Cream – YUM
