Today I'm posting over at The Rhodes Bake N Serv Blog. I'm making Basil Tomato Rolls. If you know me, you'll know how much I love Basil. This was the perfect way to use some of my fresh from the garden basil and tomatoes.
Here's a little bit of the lovely basil from my herb garden, just waiting to be chopped and eaten.
Now head over to the Rhodes Blog and see the step-by-step instructions to make these delicious rolls.

I just wanted to share this new little kitchen tool I found. Years ago, I saw something like this and I have been on the lookout ever since. It seemed like a great way to slice fresh herbs, fast. I was in my local Crate and Barrel store (I love that I can say that-my local Crate and Barrel. It's fairly new where I live and I have always loved Crate and Barrel!) browsing through the housewares. And there it was. I had to have it. And it wasn't even expensive.
You can buy it at your own Crate and Barrel Store or check it out online here.

At my house we love, Chex Muddy Buddies, or as we call it, Puppy chow. It's one of those treats I can throw together quickly. So I almost always have all the ingredients on hand. When Chex cereal goes on sale, I stock up.
So I had been seeing a few variations around on the internet. I found this cinnamon version over at The Double Dipped Life and gave it a try. It was a hit. We have made it several times. The recipe calls for cinnamon chips. If you haven't seen them they are sold next to the chocolate chips. Most stores carry them now.
If you love cinnamon and sugar. Make some soon.
Cinnamon Churro Chex Mix
9 cups rice Chex cereal
1 cup cinnamon chips
1/4 cup butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
In a microwavable bowl, cook chocolate chips and butter for 1 minute. Stir until smooth. If the mixture still has some lumps, microwave about 30 seconds longer. Place cereal in a large bowl. Slowly pour cinnamon and butter mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar, sugar, and cinnamon. Sprinkle sugar mixture over cereal and stir gently to coat evenly. Pour onto a cookie sheet to cool. It probably won't cool before the eating begins.

What has happened to me this year?
Working on this blog has always been in the back of my mind. But somehow I've been M.I.A. I've been busy with some other blogs. Check out I Heart Salt Lake, the blog about Salt Lake City and surrounding areas that I run with my sister Dianna. I've also been blogging with Rhodes. I'll have another Rhodes post soon. I've also been grilling a ton. I have a new grilled corn salsa I can't wait to share. I've also been baking banana bread as soon as the bananas get too ripe. Sometimes that happens soo fast. But my son at home doesn't seem to mind too much. I have a new banana bread recipe that I'll be sharing soon.
But I'm ready to get back to posting recipes and fun food stuff here.
Thanks for being patient with me.

I love caramel! If it has caramel in it, then I approve. There are about a million recipes out there on the web for this type of recipe. So let me add my version to all the others. It's a simple dip for just about any type of fruit. But apples are the best. But don't stop there, crackers and cookies are good dipped into this as well.
