Foodie Cravings & Holiday Baking

  We’ve established I’m a Foodie, right?!  Cooking, sharing and eating food just makes me happy!!!!!  Guess it’s fitting then, that my most popular boards on Pinterest are 4 little Fergusons Food & Proud to be a Foodie. 

Come see me:

  So, here are my latest Foodie Cravings: 

(And no, I am NOT pregnant, when you are a Foodie you have cravings pregnant or not.)   🙂

Manchego Cheese:


  At $8 a package, this craving will have to be far and few between, but thanks to the generosity of Dale’s momma, I have a whole block to enjoy and savor.  This cheese is salty, a bit dry and tastes amazing on crackers or shredded over a salad. YUMMMMMMM!

Blue Bell Ice Cream:


Christmas Cookie


Hello beautiful




  This is Dale’s bucket, but it sure is good.  Tastes JUST like the dessert!I have to be careful with this one though, because I don’t do well with caffeine.  Like bounce off the walls, jitter all night kind of problems. 

Which brings me to THIS, may latest Foodie Favorite:

My friend Lori swears up and down she doesn’t like to cook. You’ve met Lori recently in THIS photo session with her sweet twin boys and hubby. She is ALSO the Lori that shared the “Can’t Leave ‘Em Alone Bars” with us. For not liking to cook, she sure comes up with some amazing recipes to bring to our Sunday school functions!

Cheddar Bacon Dip a.k.a “Crack Dip”

  • 16 ounces, weight Sour Cream
  • 1 packet (1 Oz.) Ranch Dip & Dressing Mix
  • 3 ounces, weight Real Bacon Bits
  • 1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Mix all ingredients together and refrigerate 24 hours. Serve with chips and PREPARE TO BE AMAZED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  So we are starting our Holiday baking this week and will continue into next week, getting ready to give out Goodie Platters to friends and teachers. The kids LOVE to help!  We make things after school, or when daddy is home & supper is in the oven.  This year we are making:

Christmas Kisses

Milk Chocolate Florentine Cookies-maybe

Spritz Christmas Tree Cookies

White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge

Spiced Crackers (Dale’s favorite, so we do these every year)

AND last but not least……………………..

a batch of Coyote Poo! 


 This last one wasn’t necessarily for our Christmas goodie platters, but I HAD to try this recipe I found from Mama Bennie……

Now, if any are left by next week, they WILL be gracing our Goodie Platters, because they are THAT good!  Savory and sweet, crazy and will be the unique pop, or poop, I guess, on the platter.  Poo poo platter.  tee-hee  🙂  That’s so gross.

I will be posting this recipe soon, as well as the others, IF they get the stamp of approval!

Hugs & Happy Snacking!

  1. Think I may try your Spiced Crackers for our “Goodie Bags” this year. Although the “Coyote Poo” sounds interesting. Hope you post it soon so I might can give it a try!

  2. Hmmm – I haven’t seen the coyote poo recipe and am very excited about getting that one. We had to reschedule annual cookie baking night with my oldest gr’daughter – she’s 17 and on the go. So next week, I will be having 2 nights in a row of cookie baking night with gr’daughters. No doubt, ya’ll will have a great time too making yummies and best of all, memories.

  3. I am SO jealous your grocery stores sell the Christmas Cookie and Tiramisu ice cream. Ever since you first mentioned them on your blog I have searched our stores and have yet to find them! Boo-hoo! Maybe I’ll make a quick road trip up to Kansas and eat some of yours 😉

  4. What a line up today… crack and poo… yum!!! Trying to wait patiently for the Coyote Poo recipe… but I’m not patient when it sounds so interesting!! Hurry and post… you are killing us already!! 🙂 JK… hugs to you busy lady!! 🙂

  5. Hey Tonya those spiced crackers….how long do they stay fresh as in not get soggy/stale( if they ever do)?
    I bet they would go great in my goody baskets this year so any idea how far ahead you can make them ?
    Thanks much:)

  6. Hi Tonya just want to let you know I made the Spiced crackers and they are delicious and addictive for sure !
    I can see why Dale loves them thanks for sharing!
