Some Things You Should Know

I started this blog a long time ago as when it was "What's Cooking at My house" and before my mad photography skills kicked in and before we went gluten free. With that said you never know what you might find here. There's a little something for everyone I believe. But my hope is to provide more recipes with better photos to tempt your tummy. *smile*

I thought it would be fun to actually  have it sitting out on the porch to cool. LOL!

This recipe was good. The kids especially loved it.


1 lb. melting chocolate, chopped (I used chocolate chips)

1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

12 to 16 cups of salted popped popcorn

1-1/2 cups salted peanuts

1-1/2 cups of crispy rice cereal


Place chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. (I cooked it over low heat on the stove.) Microwave on high for one minute;stir. Add peanut butter; microwave an additional one to 2 minutes, until chocolate is completely melted. Stir mixture until creamy. Place popcorn in a large bowl or roasting pan; drizzle half the chocolate mixture over popcorn and stir. Sprinkle in peanuts and cereal, stirring to mix well. Pour remaining chocolate mixture over all; stir gently to coat. Spread onto parchment paper lined baking sheets. Put on a cool porch or in the refrigerator until chocolate is hardened. Break up any large pieces before serving. Store in an airtight container. Makes about 16 to 20 cups.
