Tasty Tuesday: Happy Trails Trail Mix

31 Jul

I’ve hooked up with some amazing romance writers this summer so I can share a few fun recipes. Stop by here on Tuesdays to load up on ideas for tasty treats.

Nancy Drew Con 2012, Gold Canyon, AZ

I know you expected a recipe, and all you see is a photo of Yours Truly in a goofy cowgirl outfit. Let me explain …

Since my novels are inspired by Nancy Drew, this year I attended a Nancy Drew Sleuth Conference in Arizona, based on the book The Secret of Shadow Ranch — also set in Arizona. In that book Nancy wears a turquoise blue squaw dress, so here I am pretending to be her.

Sleuth Cons involve lots of touring around looking for collectible books, retracing Nancy Drew’s steps in the chosen book, listening to speakers and sleuthing. We really work up an appetite.

Here’s the recipe for a fabulous snack that was included in our conference packs, and it’s amazing. Enjoy, pardner!

Quaker Oatmeal Squares

Honey Nut Chex OR Golden Grahams

Honey Bunches of Oats — Just Bunches (comes without the flakes)

    Love the outfit! So cute. Uhm, but, you know, you don’t have to wear it on any of our outings. LOL Goes great with your recipe. Have a wonderful TASTY TUESDAY!

    Cute outfit. I’m annoyed that I can’t attend any of them being here in Aus.

      Maybe I’ll try to convince the Pres to take one of the conventions there someday … Australia is on my bucket list 😉

    How fun! I’m always amazed at all the different conventions there are out there. The Happy Trails mix might just end up being a hit for snacks with my lil ones.

      I had no idea these people existed, but they’ve been having conventions for about 12 years now. A great bunch of people. Thanks for stopping by, Moira!
