Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwich April is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich month and that was all the excuse that I needed to try out some new grilled cheese sandwich recipes! Not too long ago, while I was devouring a batch of the ever so addictive jalapeno popper dip, I was thinking about other ways to enjoy that amazing flavour combination and the idea that stuck was the one for a jalapeno popper grilled cheese sandwich. As soon as I had that thought I knew that I would have to try it and this was the perfect time! The basic idea was to incorporate the flavours and textures of jalapeno poppers in a grilled cheese sandwich and the first step was the jalapeno peppers themselves. This jalapeño popper grilled cheese sandwich turned out even better than expected! Don't have time to roast some fresh jalapenos? Bacon makes a fabulous addition!

Stuffed Eggplant Recipe Over the past weekend, while I was catching up on my feeds, my heart skipped a beat when I saw a beautiful photo of stuffed eggplants on La Tartine Gourmande. The stunning visual was enough to convince me to make them. On my weekend grocery trip, I made sure to buy a firm and plump eggplant to make these stuffed shells of goodness. This is one heck of a recipe that’s awfully flavourful and indescribably comforting.

Parmesan Garlic Bread: Last week was a busy week filled with a field trip to the zoo sandwiched by 3 twelve hour shifts. By Friday I was extremely happy for the weekend to arrive. Although Pat worked late, we still barbecued dinner and relaxed with a few adult beverages after tucking in our girls. Tonight he made a special request… for garlic bread. This garlic bread beats the store bought kind by a mile. Here are the ingredients you will need. Start by pressing the three cloves of garlic into a medium bowl. Mince up a shallot so it measures one tablespoon. Add the shallot to the garlic in the medium bowl. Next, mince up the fresh parsley and measure out a tablespoon. Add that to the bowl along with the salt and pepper. Now add the *gasp* two sticks of butter and the two tablespoons {give or take} of freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Mix until combined. And set aside, just for now. Grab your loaf of Italian bread. Using a bread knife, slice lengthwise in half and place on a sheet pan. Remove and slice immediately.

Sesame Salmon Burgers with Dill Yogurt Sauce I’m eagerly anticipating the day when I can describe completing my to do list as “getting my affairs in order.” You see, I’m reserving that kind of self-importance for the days when my “affairs” consist of more than binge watching Mad Men , sitting atop my counter while I lick a bowl of brownie batter (before it’s empty, mind you), and changing from one pair of pajamas to the next. It should be noted that the second pair of pajamas were quite the trade up. On that day, in the somewhat near future, I’ll turn to Oprah and regretfully tell her that after lunch I simply cannot accompany her to her school in South Africa because “I’ve got to get my affairs in order.” Beg as she will, I simply can’t. There are affairs. Without getting too wrapped up in the details, I think I can safely say that my to-d0′s will involve a chocolate factory, high tea, crumpets, and a petty cash account. Exhibit A: Exhibit B: Exhibit C: I move on to task number two. the microwave, the dishwasher, and the refrigerator.

Italian Grilled Cheese Who doesn’t love a good grilled cheese? And, I know it’s totally Ameeeerican to make the classic: American cheese, mayonnaise and bread.

How to Make Pizza Without Dough | « LXRCUISINE I was getting kind of sick of ordering delivery pizza (this happens at least 2-3 times a month). It was time to put a spin on gourmet pizza, but I just didn't know what it would be. Without pizza dough or an oven that is capable of creating the perfect pizza crust (I don't have an oven that can go up to a 1000 degrees), I decided I would use potatoes instead. This recipe is elegant enough to serve at a dinner party, but easy enough that you can cook it within 5-15 minutes. For 4 small, personal sized pizzas 4" in diameter, you will need: 2 large potatoes peeled and cleaned4 teaspoons salt (to flavor the potatoes) I'm doing four different flavor combinations here, and the measurements for each combination will top 4 small pizzas or 1 large pizza. Cheese & pepperoni pizza: 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese1/4 cup marinara sauce10 slices of pepperoni (or as much as you like)7-8 leaves of fresh basil Mushroom swiss and ham pizza: Shrimp scampi pizza: Bleu cheese & arugula pizza: Thanks for reading.

Cannelle et Vanille Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Bread Recipe Kids can be frustratingly picky eaters. They can also have highly entertaining quirks. My niece used to ask for pepperoni pizza and then proceed to discard all of the pepperoni. But don’t you dare suggest that she order plain cheese pizza! Un-Pepperoni Pizza. But when you wrap pepperoni pizza into a fun, savory, pull-apart style bread, it’s no longer “icky” pepperoni pizza. I’ve had these Pizza Bites bookmarked for ages, so when I finally found an excuse to make them, I wanted to take it in a slightly different direction: a savory monkey bread. A very light coating of garlicky butter-covered pepperoni pizza bites, piled into a bundt cake pan, makes for a very fun Pepperoni Pizza. Or Pepperoni Un-Pizza. You can take the long route and make your favorite pizza dough and marinara sauce, or the short route and pick up your favorite pizza dough and red sauce from the store. Ingredients Instructions Heat garlic and butter over medium heat just until the garlic begins to brown. Notes

Former Chef — Cook. Eat. Travel. Grow. Cheesy Florentine Biscuit Cups March 22, 2011 1:37 pm · Posted by Lauren G I looove refrigerated Pillsbury biscuits, mostly because I like popping open the can, but they're also delicious and easy to make. I wanted something different than just your everyday biscuit, so I looked up some recipes on the Pillsbury website. I had most of the ingredients on hand (with a few substitutions) so I chose this one. 2 tablespoons unsalted or salted butter 1 box (9 oz) frozen chopped spinach 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon pepper 1 can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury® Grands! 4 oz thick-cut slices Canadian bacon, cut into 1/4-inch cubes (I used ham lunchmeat) 4 eggs 2 cups shredded mild Cheddar cheese (8 oz) Heat oven to 350°F. In 10-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Separate dough into 12 biscuits by peeling apart the layers. Break eggs into bowl and beat with a fork to mix whites and yolks evenly. Bake 15-20 minutes or centers feel firm when touched and biscuits are golden brown.

Pizza Power Rankings: Updated list of the state's Top 25 pizzerias There is chaos in that epicenter of pizza, that maelstrom of mozzarella, known as New Jersey. The updated N.J. Pizza Power Rankings, the definitive list of the state's best pizzerias, features 12 newcomers to the top 25. How, you might ask, can a pizzeria not on the initial list make the top 20, even top 10 this time around? The reason for the drastic changes in the rankings is not so much that the established pizzerias have slipped, it's that the newcomers are darned good — and not always playing by the "rules.'' You want rabbit sausage and other out-of-the-box ingredients, you now can get it. Several newcomers on the list specialize in Neapolitan-style pizza, all the rage these days, with coal or wood-fired ovens. The N.J. As you can see, the rankings take in the entire state, so no one can grumble (although someone surely will) that one part of the state is being ignored. I have eaten at every single pizzeria on this list; you do not make the N.J. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12.
