Mmmm Mmmm Monday…

Over the holidays I became an addict. I am surprised at how easy it was. I really thought I was a stronger person. But I am weak. After the first free ones, (from my Dad & ORMom, no less!) I couldn’t keep up. I couldn’t get enough. I had to have more. I even went out in the night for the supplies to make my own.

Yes, my name is Dawn and I am addicted to Karen’s Hot CRACKers.


I’m telling you, if you set out these CRACKers for your Super Bowl party, you’ll have addicts, too they will be gone in no time. They are way better than potato chips. Better than peanuts. Better than cheetos. Not better than chocolate, what are you, crazy? But really, I suggest making two batches. They’re that good. I’ll show you how!

First, let’s get the ingredients out. Canola oil, red pepper flakes, garlic powder(if you like), a large package of Ranch Dressing mix and a box of saltines. That’s it.


First you mix together 1½ cups of canola oil, the pkg of Ranch dressing mix, 2-3 tablespoons of red pepper flakes, and garlic powder (if you like, which I do).

Then you pour this over the whole box of saltines (that’s 4 sleeves, in case you buy your crackers at Costco, like I do. Now. Thank you, CRACKer lady)

Stir gently, or turn container, every 15 minutes for 1-2 hours. After that, you will have a surprisingly un-oily addictive little snack. Store in a large ziplock bag (if they’re around long enough to store).


Oh yes, you’ll have to make your own, because seriously- I’m not sharing.

Wordless Wednesday…with some words…

I like wordless Wednesdays. It gives me a chance to show off some pictures that I have cramming up my phone. Let’s see, since you’ve alread...
