Bacon Jalapeno Crescent Roll Puffs is an easy appetizer or dinner recipe that will be a crowd favorite!  I say appetizer or dinner because the recipe is something most people would serve as an appetizer but if you eat enough of them (like we did) they can also be filling enough for an entire meal 😊 Think of this recipe as a spin on a traditional jalapeno popper.  You still have the jalapeno, bacon, shredded cheese, and cream cheese but instead of being stuffed inside the jalapenos, the ingredients are wrapped in crescent roll dough.  You get crispy bacon and spicy jalapeno, but the heat is cut by the combination of Colby jack and cream cheese.  The crescent roll dough creates this warm, soft, pillowy blanket to hold the ingredients together.  They are addictive! The recipe can be found here. Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cook the … Continue reading

Jalapeno Popper Chicken Casserole is a favorite and easy to-to dinner when we are looking for something hearty and delicious.  It includes tender, juice chicken that is coated in a creamy mixture and topped with spicy jalapenos, shredded cheese, and crisp bacon.  This is a great recipe for lunch or dinner. The recipe can be found here. Start by cooking the bacon according to package instructions.  If you are using rotisserie chicken (which I highly recommend), remove the chicken from the bones and shred.  If you are using boneless skinless chicken breasts (which also work just fine), cook and cube or shred.  You want the meat to be pre-cooked before assembling the dish. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spread the chicken in the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish.  Season with garlic powder, paprika, and pepper (optional). Whisk together the heavy cream, chicken stock, and cream cheese.  Spread … Continue reading

If you’re a jalapeno popper fan, I have a wonderful recipe for you!  It’s a Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese sandwich…and it’s incredible!  The bread is toasted to perfection, the jalapenos add the right amount of heat, the bacon is crisp and adds a hint of salt, and the combination of cheeses oozing out of the sandwich in each bite make it just perfect. The recipe can be found here. Start by cooking the bacon according to package instructions.  Place on a paper towel lined place to absorb some of the grease and set aside.  Pro tip – if you make extra bacon, you have something to snack on while assembling the sandwiches 😊 Next, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Slice the jalapenos in half (lengthwise) and remove any seeds.  Fill each piece of jalapeno with cream cheese.  It doesn’t matter if the cream cheese is softened for … Continue reading

If you are searching for the perfect appetizer or side for your next cookout, look no further!  Grilled Jalapeno Poppers are the way to go!  They are stuffed with an addictive mixture of bacon, cream cheese, and cheddar cheese.  The rich and creamy combination of the stuffing contrasts the spicy jalapeno peppers leaving you wanting more. This is a great alternative to the breaded and fried version because they are fresh, cook up nicely on the grill, and are quite addicting 🙂 You can even skip the bacon for a vegetarian option if you prefer. The recipe can be found here. We own a Jalapeno Grill Rack that we use for this recipe, which I find quite wonderful to use.  If you don’t have one, I highly recommend getting one! Start by preheating the grill to 325 degrees F.  It can be tricky to keep the grill temperature consistent once … Continue reading

If you’re anything like me, you love pumpkin spice!  I know, I know, a lot of people are over the pumpkin spice craze but with so many recipes to try how can you not be intrigued by its deliciousness?  I personally think it should be a year-round item and not just seasonal, but it’s not up to me.  To fulfill my need for pumpkin I decided to have ‘pumpkin weekend’ at our house to hopefully get it out of my system (between us, it will never be out of my system 😊). The first item on the menu was Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting.  These are life changing and I don’t know if I’ll ever make cinnamon rolls without pumpkin again!  The smell of pumpkin and cinnamon fills your house as the rolls bake and for me it brought back some childhood memories because my mom liked to … Continue reading
