I Like Snacks

Here on the west coast we have a product known as Raincoast Crisps. I really don't know how far afield they are available, but they are absolutely scrumptious! And very pricey.

So, with some experimentation, I came up with my own version, which I call Gourmet Crackers. You can find the recipe on my recipe blog by clicking the link.

Snack-y meals are some of my favorites. I like little bits of flavorful things, savory mostly. I'm not a real sweets eater, other than chocolate, which has its own food group, isn't it?

How about you? Do you like snacks? What's your favorite?


  1. I like the savory too, Lorrie. Olives, cheese and crackers, anything sweet and sour or hot and sour. Raincoast Crisps are SO good - I'll head right over to check out your recipe.

  2. I've checked the recipe and it sounds wonderful, Lorie - I've not come across such exciting looking crackers before.

    I like bread, cheese and salad meals, but annoyingly, the steroids I've just been put on for two months mean that I have to cut out cheese and charcuterie! Grr... But it's a small price to pay for getting well again.

  3. They look delicious. I'm taking a look at the recipe right now... xx

  4. Yes, I love snacks! I've not seen anything like those so perhaps they're a West Coast thing. They look wonderful!

  5. I love snacks -- I could eat them as light meals often. Especially savory.

    Your raincrisps look marvellous.... will check out your recipe.

    Here's to happy and healthy snackin'

  6. Yes I am a complete loyal snacker Lorrie and these look absolutely delicious......:-) Hugs

  7. For me, snacks are a main food group. In fact, I would prefer to snack all the time in lieu of meals. I can even just grab a lettuce leaf, at times, to feel satisfied. :) If I lived alone, that is how I'd eat. But my teen boys would think life had come to a screeching halt if they didn't have big, Southern meals... largely thanks to my mother-in-law. She is the queen of Southern hospitality and cooking, in my book. I definitely need to check out your recipe!


  8. I'm off to check out the recipe...since I so enjoyed my neighbour's homemade crackers this Christmas. Her's looked like this...but also had dried cranberries in them. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Oh...I see your recipe has dried cranberries as well. Perfect!

  10. Hello,

    These look delicious!
