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?!



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: http://pinterest.com/4littleferguson/

  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!
