Kitchen Concoctions: The holidays are over... Now what?

The holidays are over... Now what?

I am so sad that the holidays are now over. But I must admit that despite all the beautiful decorations, family fun time, yummy seasonal food; I am ready to get back to a normal schedule, regular meals that don't involve sprinkles, and catch up on some much needed sleep!

But I suppose for many, the holidays officially don't wrap up (and the diets don't officially begin) until January 1st (or 2nd).

That's why I decided to share this classic and popular snack food, Muddy Buddies (a.k.a Puppy Chow). I meant to share this recipe before Christmas, because it is so easy and always a hit, perfect for holiday entertaining, but of course the days got away from me. So if you haven't already made this holiday favorite this year, don't hesitate! Make a big batch for the kids to snack on while they are out of school or for a New Year's Eve party!
