Bug Snacks

If you follow any of our other blogs you would know that my husband I was suppose to go on a cruise but it got cancelled because of the coronavirus. I wrote a two part series on my vacation. Part 1 in here and part 2 is here.

So what made us decide to go to Branson, Missouri as a back up vacation was talking with the hotel clerks at a Choice hotel we stopped at on our way to New Orleans about a beef jerky store located in Branson.

We had to visit this store while we were in Branson.
They not only had Beef Jerky, they had dried fruit, cordials, espresso beans, and I had come across something else.....

Bug snacks!

 Of the one I might consider trying are the Ant Wafers because chocolate is involved. You might not notice the ants are in there unless you get a leg stuck in your teeth.
We obviously did not buy any of these bug snacks.

Here are some other tasty food I took pictures of during our vacation:

 Banana caramel pancakes from Denny's. Yum
 Tasty family restaurant food.

 And peanut butter pie.

I was planning on taking more food pictures as these was other tasty food during the trip.  So that is it for now, if you have ever eaten any bug snacks, leave a comment.

St. Patrick's Day Tree

This is not a normal food post. I thought I would share how I decorated my tree for St. Patrick's Day. So I had put up a small tree in our spare bedroom/ office at Christmas time. I had decided not to take the tree down. I had decorated at the beginning of the year for Valentine's day. (you can find that post here.)  Soon I am going to change out this tree and give and Easter/ spring theme.

Shredded Potato Cakes

 My darling husband made up some shredded potato cakes with sausage and peppers and cheesy garlic buscuits.

He followed this Taste of Home recipe, but he added 1/4 pound of bacon and seasoned it after it was fried.

This is a great recipe and is a tasty edition to this sausage dinner.

Cup of Coffee

Made myself a cup of coffee. I don't drink it black. I has whipped cream and hot cocoa added.

I got the mug for Christmas.

Feel free to include how you drink your coffee (or if you prefer tea, I drink tea also) in the comments).

I am sharing this post with The Weekend in Black and White.

One Bowl Lemon Brownies

I saw one bowl lemon brownies on You Tube and had to make them. I had lemons on hand and went about making some tasty lemony dessert.

These did not disappoint. One change I made based on the comments from the video is to use lemon flavored yogurt. The original ingredient is Greek yogurt. It was easier to fin a small portion of lemon yogurt than it was to get plain yogurt. It did turn out pretty good. Here is the You Tube Video to make this dessert.

Here is the web site that also has the recipe.

Fudgy Mint Cookies

 Sundays around our house mean bringing our grandkids to church with us to attend Sunday School. After Church we usually go somewhere to eat and then come an a spend a couple of hours back at our house. An activity we almost always do is make cookies. This past Sunday I made the Fudgy Mint Cookie recipe found in the 2007 Taste of Home cook book.

 It is a chocolate cookie made with a box of devils food cake mix. A round ball of dough is coated in powdered sugar, baked, and after the cookie is set you immediately place a round mint cookie in the center. As you can see I did not buy the round mint cookie. I had bought large square mint cookies. I had to break apart the mint cookies into smaller pieces This recipe could of probably worded with any other cookie or candy. I was considering making this with thin Oreos.

I did find the recipe online and can be found here.

Toffee Squares

If you have seen my post from Christmas, I had mentioned that I got a couple of Pioneer Woman cookbooks for Christmas. I had also mention I recognized a recipe I have done in the past. Toffee Squares is a recipe found in the 1963 Betty Crocker Cookie book. The Pioneer has a similar recipe she called Spreads. I had done the Spreads recipe to see how it compared. It thought it was just as good. In the past I would top it with nuts, it was suggested in the book to top with pretzels. It was good choice. Toffee squares for me is a favorite cookie around the Christmas holidays. It still is a great cookie.
