Jalapeno Popper Filled Potato Bites Everyone has guilty pleasure foods. No matter how “foodie” you think you are, there is a food that you love, but would never want to be eating if Thomas Keller decided to peek in your kitchen window. For me, that’s good ole American bar food. Nachos, potato skins, jalapeno poppers, onion rings. Love it. Plus, it just brings up good memories. Here are two of my great guilt pleasure loves, in one bite.

How Do I Lose Weight? Photo 54 Losing weight boils down to simple math. To lose one pound weekly, burn or cut out 3,500 calories in the course of seven days. That breaks down to 500 calories per day. It's difficult to cut out that many by dieting alone, especially for someone who loves to eat. The most effective approach is this combo: each day, cut out 250 calories from your diet and burn 250 through exercise. Choose to either cut out one 250-calorie item such as a serving of ice cream, or omit a few small things that add up to 250 calories a day. It's also important not to exceed your recommended daily calorie intake.
Cheesy Potato Pancakes with Jalapeno Sour Cream I like to throw parties, invite people over and make them feel at home. I like to make more than enough food, and for everyone to leave very full and with a take away bag of goodies. But the last time I had a little gathering at Casa De Dodd, I had overlooked my Gluten Free friends. I had remembered the vegetarians, and the vegans, the people who don’t drink beer, but for the ones who are allergic to gluten there wasn’t much. Gluten Free isn’t a fad diet. Gluten Free (Celiac’s Disease) people don’t want to give up bread. And with over 3 million American’s allergic to gluten, chances are your next party may have one. Because gluten is used as a thickener in tons of processed foods, it can easily hid in obscure places like canned soup, pre-made salad dressing, imitation crab, cheese spread and some brands of soy sauce. So when you come across Gluten Free appetizers and dishes that you love, bookmark for them for gatherings. Cheesy Potato Pancakes with Jalapeno Sour Cream Ingredients
