Peeps
Graham Crackers
Hershey's Chocolate Squares

Place Peeps and Hershey's Chocolate squares on graham crackers. Zap in the microwave until soft (or place under a broiler). Place graham cracker square on top.

What a clever idea...and a great way to get rid of all those Peeps!

OH THAT MARTHA!

Martha Stewart and her staff always come up with the cutest ideas and I am loving this one! Fill your egg cups with mini bouquets and place them on a cake stand tier. What a great centerpiece!

  • 2 jalapeno peppers, cut in half lengthwise and seeded
  • 2 slices sourdough bread
  • 1 tablespoon butter, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup jack and cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon tortilla chips, crumbled 
Place the peppers on a baking sheet with the cut side down. Broil on the top rack for 8-14 minutes until the peppers are blackened. Place in a ziplock bag and seal. Let cool until you can handle them, about 20 minutes. Remove the skins from the peppers. They should “pinch” off easily. Assemble the sandwich and grill 2-3 minutes per side. Feast!

A LITTLE SWEET, A LITTLE SOUR

Sweet & Sour Chicken Meatballs
photo & recipe via Naturally Ella

2 slices bread
1/2 medium onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tablespoon sunflower oil (I couldn't bring myself to spend $7.99, so I used olive oil)
1 pound ground chicken
1/4 cup fresh parsley (1 tablespoon dry)
1 egg
1 (8 ounce) can pineapple pieces, drained (set juice aside for sauce)

Sauce
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup natural sugar (I used granulated sugar)
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
Pinch cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small skillet, heat sunflower oil over medium heat. Add onions and garlic; cook until onions are transparent (about 3 to 4 minutes). Set aside to cool slightly.

Using a food processor, turn bread into crumbs (or shred with your hands). In a large bowl, combine meatball ingredients (everything except pineapples); stir until everything is mixed thoroughly. Shape into 12 meatballs (I had about 17 and it barely filled a 9x13 pan). Sprinkle pineapple pieces over meatballs.

In a small bowl, whisk together ingredients for sauce, adjusting sugar and pineapple juice for desired sweetness. Once ready, cover meatballs in sauce. Bake for 23-25 minutes (took me about 30) until meatballs are cooked all the way through. Delicioso!!!
