Jalepeno poppers

Headed to a BBQ, housewarming, camping, fight night? Or if you are just in the mood for some jalapenos! Whatever the event, make sure you don’t show up empty handed. I certainly was that person for years, I know I know, it’s embarrassing


To be honest, it never even crossed my mind to bring something. I never cooked, like never, ever cooked. So of course I didn’t bring anything to parties, what if my dish gave someone food poisoning? At my skill level this was a guarantee. Thanks to The Fresh Farmhouse Kitchen Cookbook, I show up and know i’m going to get thank you’s!

When a hostess sees you walking in with a dish, you instantly feel a sense of gratitude, it makes them feel like you care and it adds a variety to the appetizer spread. Win win! Its one small thing that you can do to show appreciation, show that your thankful they are hosting so you don’t have to am I right? Because lord knows my baseboards are not prepared to have people over.

Shout out to Emily Frisella for sharing this appetizer recipe! They are always this easy and taste amazing!
