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 Biscoff Cookies

One night, at the end of a church event, someone started passing out packages of candy and cookies. I didn’t recognize any of the brands, and like an idiot I took three random packages.

One was a raspberry cream filled chocolates, and the second one was orange cream filled chocolates. They were awful. Just awful. They tasted fake and they gave me a migraine. (Maybe it was something in the filling?)

So by the time I got to the third package I was pretty scared. I looked at the label and was surprised to see that it contained mostly good ingredients. No high-fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, or MSG. I was thinking okay, so far so good. But I was still skeptical and not ready to dive into the cookies. After the last two times I had tried something new…well, you’d be nervous too!

I asked my mother what biscoff was just a yummy, buttery cookie that people typically eat with a cup of coffee.

The next morning I tried the cookies with my coffee. <—– Best decision ever.

It is soooo good! Not too sweet and goes really well with coffee. (Biscuit + Coffee = Biscoff… You’re Welcome! 😉 )

Biscoff has an amazing buttery flavor and I decided that morning that I couldn’t live without biscoff ever again.

What happened after that? I had biscoff with my coffee every morning for about three days. Then it ran out.
