Guest post on Mom It Forward - Toffee Crackers

As some of you know I had a recipe featured on Mom It Forward yesterday!  How exciting!!  I made the Toffee Crackers that have been floating around the internet for the past month.

Be sure to check out Mom It Forward and "like" them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter!

A few of you have emailed me and asked a few questions about a few things.  Since some of the questions were the same I wanted to share the answers here as well in case there was anyone else wondering the same thing.  I also wanted to show you some extra pics of the process.



Q1: What kind of cracker did you use?
A1: Well, I actually used two different crackers and a cereal.  I wanted to see what one I preferred and if the same process would work on cereal.  I used regular saltines, Ritz and Rice Chex.  
I preferred the regular saltines over everything else.  
I liked the Ritz but they did not enhance the flavor like the saltines did.  They just kind of blended in and did not hold their own flavor. 
The rice Chex were OK.  I did not use very many and they tasted just a bit bland.  To make the Chex work you would need to cut back how much toffee you use or use more Chex.  I would also melt the chocolate chips and drizzle on top rather than melting the chocolate directly on the hot cereal/toffee next time.


 Q2: Can you over boil the toffee?
A2: Yes, yes you can.  And it is not pretty.  Really, it only needs to boil for the 3 minutes.


Q3: This was really hard to "break" is there another way to "break" it?
A3: I like using a pizza cutter.  You won't get straight lines but it does help break it up.


If you have any other questions feel free to leave a comment or contact me.

Enjoy!

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her.
Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good! I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags.

Lightened-up Copycat KFC Coleslaw Recipe

Mmmmmm....I LOVE KFCs Coleslaw!  I mean LOVE it! It is the perfect creaminess, sweetness, crispness!  Growing up I LOVED when we had KFC, my meal consisted of potatoes and gravy, a chicken leg, biscuit with honey and a boat load of slaw.  To this day, it is my go to comfort meal.
But, after looking up the nutrition info, I kind of fell out of love a little bit. Goodness is it loaded!  I decided right then I was going to try to lighten it up a bit.  The results? Totally worth it and awesome!
