The Oilfield Cafe: Best-Ever Chex Mix

I live for Chex Mix. Not the kind you buy from the grocery store, the homemade kind overflowing with buttery, crunchy goodness. If I had one food to live off of forever, this recipe just might be it. One of the only good things I ever received from my mother-in-law (besides my husband, of course!) […]
