Sweet & Salties

If there's anything I like almost as much as dark chocolate, it's chocolate with something salty. Carrie sent me this recipe. Yum!


Line a cookie sheet with greased aluminum foil.

Bring to a boil in a saucepan and simmer for five minutes:

1 C. Butter
1 C. Dark Brown Sugar

On cookie sheet layer:

Saltines - enough to cover, close together.

Pour the butter/brown sugar mixgture over the crackers and bake at 350 degrees for 6 to 10 minutes (depending on your oven -- watch it).

Remove and immediately pour over the crackers:

1 12 oz. bag of chocolate chips (my preference is Nestle's), spreading them as they melt.

Sprinkle with:

1/2 of a 12 oz. bag of brickle bits (chopped nuts work great, too).

Cool to room temperature, and then chill in the refrigerator. If they stay in the refrigerator long enough to harden, break them into pieces like peantut brittle. Enjoy!

Note from Carrie: You can also mix peanut butter chips and chocolate chips. In fact, any chip mixture that strikes your fancy works well.

Thanks so much, Carrie! Can't wait to try this.

Spinach and Artichoke Baked French Bread

I saw this on the recipe forum on (Christian Work at Home Moms), and thought it sounded scrumptious. Tammy Embrich gave me permission to share it with you. Enjoy!

12 oz bag fresh spinach, stems removed, cut in a wide chiffonade
14 to 16 oz can artichoke hearts, drained, chopped
2 cups mayonnaise
2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
1 loaf French Bread

Cut the artichoke into small pieces and add to the spinach. Next add the mayo. and cheese, and mix these with a spoon until equally blended. Cut the French bread diagonally into 1 inch slices and top with mixture.

Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 until slightly browned on top (10 to 15 minutes). This also can be baked without the bread and served as a warm dip.
