Welcome to my new followers! I appreciate each and every follower that I have and I welcome all comments. Especially the nice ones. I've also found a bunch of new blogs to follow myself, and you can see my list if you look on the right of the screen and scroll down. Looks like I've found something new to collect, right?
Yesterday Mark said that he wanted to watch the big playoff game between the Atlanta Falcons and some other team. So I made a delicious snack to munch on while the game was going on.
I found this spicy cracker recipe on Pinterest and then saw variations of it in other places. Sometimes they were called Firecrackers. This is the version I used:
1-1/2 boxes of Premium Mini Crackers
1 Package of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix
2 Tablespoons Red Pepper Flakes
1 Cup Canola Oil
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Mix oil, red pepper flakes, and ranch dressing mix in a big bowl. Add crackers and stir around until the crackers are well coated. Let stand for about 5-10 minutes. Stir around one more time and then spread crackers on a large cookie sheet and bake for about 10 minutes. Stir around on cookie sheet and bake for 5 more minutes.
You can also use regular sized crackers for this, and I've seen where someone mentioned using Cheez-Its. Mmmmm. You can also adjust the heat by using more or less pepper flakes. So go and make some. And then make some more in two weeks for your Super Bowl (which the Falcons will not be playing in) party.
In all the busyness of the last couple of weeks, I forgot to show you a stitching finish! Yes, I actually finish stuff once in a while.
I'm also working on LHN's Singing The Blues for the Facebook group I'm working with.
