This snack mix is…well, everything! I made this for our family game night not too long ago, and it has been a hit ever since. I love the wasabi peas it adds a little kick. Our all-time favorite snack mix is this Original Chex Mix – with a kick. I make it several time a year and I usually make a double batch for the holiday’s when we have a house full of guests. This one is a great alternative and is really different than the traditional.
- 4 cups honey nut cereal, such as Chex
- 2 cups salted pretzel sticks, hollows, or squares
- 2 cups grooved Cheddar crackers, such as Cheeze-it
Winter stinks.period. All I can do is count down the days until the first day of Spring, actually I start getting super excited on March 1st because in my mind spring is knocking on the door. After these past couple of week with frigid weather I was really in the mood for something that reminds me of summer. Mexican was the first thing that came to mind really it was more salsa verde that came to mind. We have Mexican all year round but I don’t make as much homemade salsa int eh winter since the ingredients needed are not at their peak. This weekend I was craving some homemade salsa and I wanted to make Salsa Verde along with it for an enchilada dish I will be sharing later! This was only the second or 3rd time I have made salsa verde and I couldn’t remember what recipe I used the last time I made it so I decided to wing it. It was way better than the versions I have made in the past. I love it when I can just throw things together and make something delicious. I hope you make this soon in anticipation of warmer days. I know they are just around the corner!
First, I have some big news! I am designing my very own webpage! I am super excited about this new adventure. I know just a little about web design and when I say a little I mean the size of a gnat! I am learning more and more as I go-which is pretty exciting. I am hoping to have my new website up and running in February. There is still a lot to be done but as the days go by and my knowledge grows it gets closer to completion!
Now on to these graham crackers! I am not sure if you’ve noticed but I like to make as many things as possible from scratch. I am starting a series titled “Homemade Basics” to categorize all the great things you can make as home instead of buying fro the store. I am very excited to share with you some of my favorite homemade basics over the next few weeks. I have already shared some really easy and great homemade recipes: Homemade Flour Tortillas, Homemade Pie Crust, and My Favorite Pizza Dough just to name a few. These graham crackers are so much better than store bought and so much cheaper! I hope you enjoy these as much as we do.
Let me just say this stuff is incredibly addictive. There you have been warned! I had leftover Chex cereal from the holidays and wanted to be able to use it in something before it went stale. I usually make Muddy Buddy Mix, but this year I wanted to do something different. I went to the trusty intranet to see what I could find. When I came across this recipe I knew it was the one! I conducted this search about 2 weeks ago and I have been dreaming about making it ever since I saw it! I was not let down one bit! I am surprised I still have some left, I literally had to stop myself before I devoured the entire batch!
