Made some "food" this weekend to take to a bbq... easy peasy stuff... but yummy nonetheless.

Spicy Goldfish Cracker Mix
(found on BakeSpace)

3 pkg (6.6 oz each) Cheddar Goldfish
1 Envelope Ranch Salad Dressing mix
3 tsp. Dill Weed
1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp lemon-pepper seasoning
1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1/2 c vegetable oil (the original recipe called for 2/3c, but reviews on the recipe by others suggested less... waste not, want not.)

With all goldfish in a big pot/bowl, and ungreased baking sheets ready to go into the pre-heated 250 degree oven...
Mix together ranch, herbs and spices with oil. Toss with the crackers. Then spread out on to the baking sheets to bake for 15-20 minutes. Stir occasionally.

Notes: People seemed to like these... something different than just normal goldfish crackers. I personally REALLY munched down when these were right out of the oven... and not so much at the party. But, maybe I was filled up on other delish foods. MMMM love bbqs!

Cap'n Crunch Berries Marshmallow Treats
(the store brand, actually)

I used the same "recipe" as before, but this time it came out too sticky. I think there was less cereal (which i GASPED at upon opening this "15oz." box of generic brand Cap'n Crunch), which REALLY makes a difference. I thought about cutting it with some corn flakes I have, but ended up THINKING it would be okay as is. WRONG! So, note to self, not all cereals are the same... experimentation with finding the right balance of cereal and marshmallows is key to a successful and delicious (non-sticky) marshmallow treat! (Too bad "branded" cereals cost an arm and a leg at $5.00 a box!!!!!)
