Baked Jalapeño Poppers

Baked Jalapeno Poppers

One of my favorite things back in the day was those TGIF frozen jalapeño poppers that you would pop in the oven.  OMG.  They were amazing.  Remember them?!!?  They probably still exist actually.  Not good for you, by any means, but they were tasty.  Well, now that I keep a closer eye on the things I eat, those are out of the question.  The laundry list of crazy ingredients is just bad news.  Luckily, I have these babies to fill the void.  They taste BETTER than the boxed version and only have a handful of ingredients.  Score!

Every morning I come outside and play in the garden for at least a little bit.  This time of the year there is always stuff to pick, weed, tie up on the trellis, etc.  Obviously, my favorite of the 3 is to pick the veggies!  Weeding always comes last.  Lol.  So when I come in the house with a bowl of tomatoes, I am trying to think of what to make with them!  I try not to repeat meals too much so we don’t get bored of eating the same thing over and over again.  Luckily, there is no shortage of things to do with tomatoes.  This Bruschetta is super easy and super flavorful; you can’t beat that!

Radish and Gorgonzola Crostini

This recipe was invented from garden surplus.  That will probably be a theme all summer long, so my apologies in advance.  My radishes are all poking their little heads out of the soil, which means they are ready to be picked!  And my greens are just a heaping mass of overflowing leaves.  A girl can only eat so many salads before she needs to find a new use for radishes and greens.  I mean really, salads are delicious and all, but not every day.  I really wasn’t sure how this was going to turn out, but oh my gosh, we couldn’t stop eating them.  Best part?  These were quick to whip up and didn’t involve a lot of ingredients.  You could get crazy and make the baguette from scratch (they are actually amazing homemade) but I didn’t have time tonight because we decided to make this at 6:00 and had to go to the store to get the cheese still.
