Cheesy Jalapeno Poppers

Words of the wise.

Wear gloves.

Aaaaaand don’t touch your eyes.

Please just trust me on this.

The first time I made this…hehe…was a nightmare. I didn’t know how to handle hot peppers so I just went for it like it was a bell pepper. Big mistake. My finger tips burned for days. I washed my hands. With soap. The burn remained. Also, if I licked my fingers, I could still taste the spiciness of the jalapeno on them. Guys, it hurt. Please wear gloves.

If my fingertips couldn’t handle it…how do you think my eyes would have felt?

I am not looking forward to figuring out.

Nope.

Easy Hot Artichoke Dip

It literally takes 60 seconds to get this dip in the oven. Having little kids in the house, I can’t be tied up for long. So this dip is reeeeeally perfect.

It also insures a serving of veggies getting into these hobbits. Not that they know, of course. I just tell’em it’s “Monster Dip” and let them think they’re eating monsters.

Ultimate Cheesy Tuna Pasta Casserole

Who else celebrates Valentines Day with a group of friends?

Every year, me and my girls get together for a home cooked dinner party on valentines day (NO BOYS ALLOWED!) and we all bring a dish. Most of these dishes are skinny, or light, because most of us have just made new years resolutions to lose weight. I always try to focus more on what my body needs, rather than starving myself of something and calling it a “diet.”

I make sure I get a good amount of fat and protein to help my body function properly. This is why I bring this Cheesy Tuna Black Bean Casserole to the dinner party. It provides the essential nutrients,and it tastes great. And I make sure to cook more than necessary, so the girls can take leftovers home with them.

The first time I made it for them, they asked me for the recipe, but I didn’t have one to give them! I had just improvised a casserole using what I had on hand (trying to keep it healthful), and it was really good. Luckily, I had remembered what I did and was able to replicate it and write down the recipe.

It took, like, an hour to name it. We finally decided on Ultimate Cheesy Tuna Pasta Casserole. And I’m stickin’ with that.

Homemade Pimento Cheese

I never knew how much I like pimento cheese until I tried my Grandmama’s recipe. Every time we go to her house for a visit, she has a bowl of pimento cheese and a platter of vegetables and crackers. Just the way her grandchildren like it. And it might suprise you how much we eat, but once you try this recipe yourself, you’ll understand why.

Stromboli {Step-by-Step}

I basically “created” this recipe when I didn’t have anything planned. I had some sausage I needed used up and some dough in the fridge. The idea of a sort of lunch roll came to mind and I just started making it without much thought, and hoping it wouldn’t be so gross that my family couldn’t choke it down.
