I’ve shared two indulgent holiday cookies this week, Chocolate Chip Peppermint Crunch Cookies and Red Velvet Cheesecake Cookies . I figured it was time to share a healthier holiday treat-Honey Cinnamon Roasted Chickpeas. If you haven’t tried roasted chickpeas, you are missing out. They are easy to make and one of my favorite snacks. You can season them in a variety of ways, but these Honey Cinnamon Roasted Chickpeas are perfect for the holiday season.
Making the jalapeno cornbread to go with the chili was just an excuse because what I really wanted it for was to make some really special jalapeno cornbread grilled cheese sandwiches. I first came across the idea for this cornbread grilled cheese at a recent Toronto Underground Market where Comida Del Pueblo was serving them and boy did they ever look good! Unfortunately the long line kept me away and before I knew it I was out of time and it was too late. Rather than become depressed I simply saw this as a challenge to make them at home based solely on the description of the jalapeno cornbread grilled cheese with chipotle caramelized onions, refried black beans and guacamole. Luckily I was familiar with making all of the ingredients and had recipes for the chipotle caramelized onions , refried black beans , and guacamole so I only needed to come up with the recipe for the jalapeno cornbread and then combine everything, add some cheese and grill it up.
I’m never going to make garlic potato fries any other way. These garlic fries, win hands down as the best garlic french fries I’ve ever made. Plus they are baked – so I won’t feel too guilty if I make it every time I’m craving for some potato comfort.
Monday, August 9, 2010 Before I even get into this addictive little snackity snack, I just want to say thank you for all the wonderful birthday wishes yesterday on Twitter and Facebook. You all are so thoughtful to send a little message of good wishes. I was sitting at the airport waiting for my flight home and everytime a new message came in, my phone would sound a happy little *ping!* They came so fast and furious, it just about sounded like I was having my own little Vegas jackpot moment on my phone!
Roasted potatoes are pretty much my life. I’ve been told that I make one mean batch of roasted potatoes, and so I feel like it’s my civic duty to share the recipe with you today. There really isn’t anything that crazy that goes into these potatoes but I guess they are pretty much like crack. People, including my boyfriend, just can’t get enough of them.
As always, thanks for visiting my site! If this looks delicious to you, please sign up for my occasional emails . . . with more great recipes!

SCORE BIG with this recipe! Surprise guests at your next party by whipping up this delicious dip featuring the flavor of Buffalo wings combined with 2 dreamy creams. Serve with a variety of scoopers (tortilla chips, crackers, celery). It will be a family favorite for sure.
