Stuffed Poblano Topped Burger

Recently, we had made the most delightful serrano pepper jelly and started to look for ways to use it.  A friend of ours said she thought it would taste great on a burger.  So here we are trying it on burger!  To keep in theme of the pepper, we whipped up some stuffed poblanos to […]

Seranno Pepper Jelly

Remember that song  “Love the One Your With” by Stephen Stills of Crosby, Stills and Nash?  That is kind of what  happened with my Seranno Pepper Jelly.  I didn’t intend to make seranno pepper jelly.  It was actually my second choice and I wasn’t even happy about it.  My plans were to make Jalapeno pepper […]

Ultimate Lemon Layer Cake

When I say ultimate, I mean ULTIMATE lemon layer cake!  Labor day is here and summer is almost over. Eric and I really wanted to make something to keep the romance of summer alive just one more weekend.  One last kiss to remember summer by until we meet again next year.   But FYI, this kiss […]

Banana Peanut Butter Bread

Hunk a hunk of burning love for this ultra moist banana bread!  Elvis would be sure to love the generous swirls of cinnamon honey peanut butter throughout this banana bread.
