Today I’m Hooked on…

January 16th, 2009 · 17 Comments

Dried Cranberries

Aurora dried cranberries!  They are so yummy.  My youngest son and I made oatmeal cookies at Christmas time and we used these cranberries in some of the cookies instead of raisins.  They were great!  But, I can’t only have healthy snacks, can I?  I must have chocolate!

Lindt trufflesLindt Truffles

I love these things!  I limit myself to two a day.  They cost too much money for me to go beyond that.  Not to mention the poor example I would be setting for my children if I ate ten a day!

Oh!  Did you notice I placed my snacks on my favorite little dish?!  Here’s the story of the dish!

Go on over to see some more of Hooked on Fridays at Hooked on Houses!

    Try the white chocolate Lindt Truffles…, they’re awesome. I cannot only eat two though, for me the magic number with these is six…

    Oh my goodness. I could eat myself into a different pant size with those two things alone! Enjoy!

    Oh my gosh. I love dried cranberries! I put them in my salads and I love them in my scones. And plain, too. Or in a trail mix.

    And don’t get me started on the truffles. Those things are so freaking good! Except, if they’re in my house, there’s no limiting myself. I’m eating them all!

    Mmmm…on the cranberries AND chocolate. 😉 We put dried cranberries and walnuts in our salads – we’re hooked on them, too!

    I got a package of the Lindt white chocolate in my Christmas stocking. mmmMMMmmm!
    I love your favorite plate, and I love your story about the plate. What serendipity! I love vintage milk glass. I makes me smile out loud.

    What a good idea to put cranberries in the cookies instead of raisins. Sounds good to me. Like Ms. Tee, I like them on my salads, but never considered baking with them.

    My husband always gets me those Lindt Truffles for Valentine’s Day because they’re my absolute favorite! I like the chocolate-mint. Yum. And the milk chocolate, and the dark chocolate. Any of them will do, really. :-)

    Thanks for linking up to my party. I enjoyed your post!

    The cranberries look great! I’ll have to try baking with them. Oh, and I do limit myself with two of those awesome chocolates when I’m checking out at the bookstore. Love them!

    My mouth is watering for both. First over the cranberries and then really watering for the chocolates. Those are my favourites and only last moments in our house, yumm!

    The cranberries look so yummy…but I love chocolate…so, maybe one cranberry, two chocolates…. and so on!

    Hi Everyone!

    Thank you for the great comments! So glad to know I’m not the only one hooked on dried cranberries and Lindt truffles!

    I love dried cranberries, too, and like others, I sometimes add them to salad. And truffles? Love them! Yeah, “hooked” is a good word for it! ~Arleen
