Cider Pretzel Knots stuffed with Baked Apples and Cheddar Cheese

By |January 31st, 2014|

I hate waking up Thursday morning thinking it’s Friday.  That’s got to be one of the worst realizations.  Although, lucky for me, I have tomorrow off thanks to Chinese New Year!  祝大家马年快乐!

Anyway, before I got that wonderful news yesterday afternoon, this week had just seemed to drag on and on and when that happens, I […]

Cheddar & Jalapeño Muffins

By |August 2nd, 2013|

Today we are flying out to the Midwest.

And while I’m either snoozing or snacking away on homemade granola bars on the plane, I feel like Luke may be a little left out, staring at his tiny packet of airline peanuts.  Or whatever crap they give you these days.  Call me a softie, but I wanted him […]

Cheddar Scallion Popovers

By |October 27th, 2012|

I had no idea what a popover was until about a year ago.  The name still seems strange it me, shouldn’t it be a pop-up?

I mean, it poofs up like crazy in the oven, not over.  Otherwise, we’d all have really big oven messes thanks to them.  Lucky for me, err, us–we received a popover […]

Cheddar Scallion Bagels

You know, there’s a lot of jalapeño cheddar going on around here.  Funny thing about that combination is, I can’t eat it.  I guess that’s not so funny.

This girl’s taste buds are of the tame, docile, please-keep-those-chilies-away-from-me variety.  But that guy who lives with me/makes more money than I do/agreed to marry me has a […]

Jalapeño Cheddar English Muffins

By |October 10th, 2012|

I’m sure from the picture I posted yesterday you already guessed what my mystery jalapeño jelly vehicle was.  But would you have guessed that it also contains jalapeño?  Yeah…Luke likes it hot?  And cheesy?

Ok, before I get into how to make these amazing breakfast bites, here’s your Hop Day with Izzy picture.  This little bun […]

Chili Cornbread Pasta Bake

By |September 28th, 2012|

If you could go back in time and have a little chat with high school-aged Anna about how she’d get married before any of her friends, she’d probably laugh in your face.  She’d try and be discrete about it, but there was no way that girl would ever believe you.

She didn’t have a boyfriend until […]

Jalapeño Cheddar Bagels

By |May 19th, 2012|

I am happy to report that yesterday’s reunion festivities were quite enjoyable, and I never felt awkward or left out, not even once.  As soon as we arrived on campus, we checked in at registration, then went to see one of Luke’s old teachers who lives on campus with his wife and children.

They are lovely […]
