Yes, you read that correctly–bacon-wrapped buffalo chicken jalapeño poppers. Crazy, right?! I stumbled across this recipe a few months ago, but completely forgot about it until now. These poppers were unbelievably flavorful, with just the right amount of kick from the buffalo sauce and jalapeño. If you’re like me and love bacon, buffalo sauce and jalapeños, please go make these!
This recipe is incredibly simple; however, it doesn’t lack in the flavor department. I’ve always been a sucker for potatoes–mashed, smashed, baked, roasted, fried–so naturally, these smashed potatoes are my kind of meal. And it doesn’t hurt that bacon is involved. :)
Happy Thursday! I came across this recipe for Parmesan and spinach orzo on Chung-Ah’s blog over at Damn Delicious, and knew I had to make it. The creamy pasta was full of flavor and the perfect side dish. Luckily, the recipe made a lot of leftovers, so I was able to bring the orzo for lunch all week. :)
Now that I’m settled into my new apartment, I’m finally back in the kitchen! I was craving risotto and hadn’t made it in a while, so I decided to whip up this sweet corn risotto. My go-to recipe is Giada’s basic risotto in her Everyday Italian cookbook. The recipe is delicious as is, but made even better by adding sweet corn, asparagus or peas.
Life has been insanely busy since the start of the year, meaning I’ve been a complete stress case. On top of working full-time and taking an extension course at UCLA, I’m moving into a new apartment in two weeks! Although stressed, I’m beyond excited for everything to come–it just means I’ll be a little behind on blogging, so I apologize in advance!
Happy New Year! After a wonderful two weeks off work, I’m finally back at the office today. I put cooking and blogging on the back burner over the break, but I’m back in action now and bring you potato croquettes. These crispy taters are a must-make. I brought the croquettes to a football party over the weekend and they were gobbled up in no time. I think my brother alone ate five of them!
It’s been a big week for me, guys. I baked something with chocolate and I made a Chinese dish. Woohoo! This orange chicken was incredibly delicious, but frying the chicken was messy and time consuming. I guess I need to ask Santa for a deep fryer. ;)
