Jalapeño Popper Dip

Jalapeño Popper Dip
That’s right, you heard it here- Jalapeño Popper Dip! I love jalapeño poppers and have even tried to make them, which didn’t turn out as well as their purchased cousin and were pretty labor intensive. The word labor makes me run the other way. Have you ever made poppers before? Dealing with jalapeños is quite an undertaking as one has to be very careful not to burn their hands or rub their eyes during the process. And frying at home can be messy sometimes. Just look at that thick layer of prebaked crust. I took this appetizer to a neighborhood gathering last Saturday and everyone really liked it- a lot. Look at that beautiful golden crust atop a bubbly creamy and flavorful base.

Nasturtium Pesto Recipe How does your garden grow? Now that the weather in California's started to warm, all of the vegetables in mine have finally started to grow! Nothing's quite large enough to pick yet, except for a few nasturtium plants, which are growing like weeds. When life gives you nasturtium leaves, make nasturtium pesto! I used the traditional ingredients in a basil pesto, but substituted the basil with a big bowl of hand-picked nasturtiums. See what I topped with this condiment, then make your own version of this fresh pesto. Smoky Chipotle Parmesan French Fries I truly appreciate your visiting my site! If this looks delicious to you, please subscribe for my occasional emails with more great recipes, to the right of this post.

Secret Recipes and Hummus We all have our secret recipes. Recipes that we are proud of, that we offer to bring to get togethers, and that everyone adores and coos over. After the party is over the bowl has been scraped clean and everyone is asking - nay begging- for your recipe.

what goes into making chocolate bowls Leave it up to me to mess up every recipe in the world... but on the flipside, by experiencing everything that goes wrong, I end up learning the most.I had seen these bowls from Stephanie's Kitchen, and decided it was a fantastic idea for my food independent study. ingredients: chocolate, and balloons! first, a giant bar of chocolate all the way from taiwan! and it's -special- grade, whatever that means. (i actually tried to pipe pretty lacy chocolate bowls first, but uh, that completely failed so i moved on. plus i don't like that pink fake chocolate.)

Vanilla Extract Recipe Vanilla extract is called for in just about every baking recipe, but what most people don’t know is that making your own is incredibly easy, and even saves a little cash. (Our vanilla is about 25 percent cheaper than buying it at the store.) Just don’t confuse this recipe with an infused liquor for drinking—the extract is way too concentrated to sip on the rocks. What to buy: Vanilla beans can be found in the spice or bulk section of most grocery stores. Choose dark, supple, oily pods. Game plan: Using vodka for the base creates a vanilla extract with a neutral, all-purpose flavor, but we found that other liquors like rum and bourbon could also be used to add different flavors to your baking.

Vegan Hummus Recipe Stef, if you are reading this, please don’t have a heart attack! I know it is sacrilege to make any self respecting hummus out of a can! AND with garlic! Nibbles & Feasts: Green Enchiladas stuffed with Shrimp &Veggies... A couple of weeks ago I promised you two more recipes that included Melissa’s Produce hatch chile. For this one, I wanted to make something very Mexican that included seafood. Well, here it is ladies and gentlemen, hatch chile recipe number two: Green enchiladas. But these aren’t any ordinary green enchiladas.

Spanakopita Bites Buttery, flaky phyllo appetizers are especially popular in my family. I guess I can't blame them since who can resist buttery, flaky phyllo dough anyway?! My mother in law requested these Spanakopita Bites as an appetizer for the birthday party she was throwing for her husband. They were a hit with no leftovers, which is no surprise. Homemade Oreos I almost never repeat recipes. I have soooo many recipes bookmarked and dog eared that it just doesn't make sense to bake the same thing twice. This recipe is the exception.
