Hello There, May I Offer You Some Coyote Poo?!

  This is Post 2 for today, be sure to head back to Post 1: I {Heart} Library Day.

   Sooo, this is just the most disgusting recipe title ever!  It was actually Coyote POOP, but Destiny panicked: “MOM! We don’t TALK like that!!!!!!”, so Poo it is. 

 (still gross, sorry!)

  Let me tell you, this may be the weirdest recipe I have ever made, but my goodness, were the results amazing.  These are sweet, savory, cheesy, crisp and crunchy, chewy and CRAZY good, all at the same time!!!!!!!

  I give you……………..

Coyote Poo

(As always, click on title to be taken to Tasty Kitchen to print)


  • 2 cups Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup Butter
  • ¼ cups Light Corn Syrup
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 15 ounces, weight Cheetos Cheese Curls

Pour Cheetos into a extra large bowl. 
Generously spray a large baking sheet or jelly roll pan. 
Bring sugar, butter and syrup to a boil. Stir for 5 minute without stopping. Remove from heat and quickly add baking soda, stirring rapidly.
Pour over Cheetos, carefully stirring them, so they are well coated.  Pour coated Cheetos on to prepared baking sheet and separate them a bit so they don’t overlap too much.  Make sure to eat all the leftover caramel bits in the bowl, then b
ake at 125* for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately dump out on to clean cookies sheets or foil lined counter tops to cool before placing in Tupperware to store.

 Or you could save yourself a step, and just fill a giant bowl with them and eat them all during movie night with your sweetie.

  Not that I would know or anything……

Enjoy! Coyote Poo is FABULOUS! Who knew?!


I {Heart} Library Day

  I love, love, LOVE to read and want my kids to be good readers too.  We promote this by limiting TV time to an hour a day, and requiring quiet reading (or looking at pictures if you can’t read yet) every day during nap time. 

  I could go on to list 1,001 reason that I love Library Day, but I am pretty sure the photo below says more than I could ever articulate:

Do you hear that?

SILENCE, except for the occasional turned page.


Where is Paxton you ask?  Oh making mischief I am sure.  Let me go find him…..

“Paxton!  What are you doing on the train table?!  And why must you destroy the kids Nativity set everyday?” 


  Guess its time I put down the camera and go read Paxton some books………

I {heart} reading!  🙂
