Microwave Sweet Party Mix

Hi friends. There's a party going on around here! My husband, Eric, turns 41 today! Happy Birthday Dear Hubster. We're taking everyone out to celebrate tonight at Eric's favorite BBQ joint. You've never seen someone skin a rib like Eric! And he waits til he's all done to use a napkin. It's quite a site.

To keep the party going, I have a sweet recipe to share with you today. It's called Microwave Sweet Party Mix. My crafty friend Carmen brought this to one of our first crops we attended together and I had to have the recipe right away. You prepare it in the microwave, usually double recipes when I make it.
Since this is one of the girls' favorite snacky recipes, I embellished my 4" x 6" recipe card with JustRite's *Family Favorite* stamp from the What's Cookin' Borders & Centers 1-5/8" stamp set. Right now this set, along with all the 1-5/8" stamp sets are on sale at JustRite for 20% off for a limited time. You can check out all the sets on sale HERE.
I love to create these hand made recipe cards so that my girls will have access to all of my favorite recipes. So many times, recipes get lost, tucked away in hard to find places, or we simply commit them to memory and don't write them down. Jordan, my little cook, has requested all of my recipes. Josey on the other hand just needs a map to the closest fast food joints. Maybe some day she will love to cook too. Maybe.

Anyway, my recipe card is embellished with papers from We R Memory Keepers, a great line I found at my local scrapbook store. I like to print off my recipe card, trim it down to size and then fill in the black spaces with embellishments. Machine stitching adds great detail too.
Hope you party like a rock star today! For us....probably more like a retired country western singer. We're pretty low key these days. But being with family is what it's all about!! Well, I gotta run....Jordan is painting Eric a KU Jayhawk for his office and I'm getting ready to wrap presents for tonight. Josey is still in bed. That girl. :)

That's SO sweet how you make recipe cards for your girls to enjoy. I have grand plans to try all your recipes! So far I've only made the corn salad-in-a-jar. It was PERFECT for a concert picnic we biked to last summer! :)
