Steak lo Mein

Since I’ve been helping out the folks, I’ve been “forced” to step up and find creative ways to use up extra steak. This time, it’s Steak Lo Mein and it HAS to be my best “secondary” steak dish, ever. Hands down.

Famous Dave’s Cornbread

If you want an incredible, moist, fluffy cornbread, you’ve got to try Famous Dave Anderson’s recipe. He claims it’s even better than his corn muffins that are served at his Famous Dave’s restaurants. I agree!

Cheddar, Bacon & Jalapeno Stuffed Mushrooms

There’s something that’s very gratifying about cooking for my folks – I teasingly call them my victims because they get the brunt of my new recipes and various concoctions. You’d think at their age they’d be a little jaded about food so I love it when their eyes light up and I get the little happy noises when they eat.

Crab Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

Raise your hand if you’ve had this happen: you pick up a lovely little Jalapeno Popper. What looks to be a perfect bit of deliciousness. And that first bite is crunchy raw jalapeno, then bacon pulls off in a chunk, and adding insult to injury, slaps you in the chin with some kind of random, greasy, molten cheesiness. Bummer.

Smoky Jalapeno Bacon Dip

When an opportunity to party rolls around, I like to pull out all the stops, don’t you? I’ll be finding opportunities to make this Smoky Jalapeno Bacon Dip. It’s positively addictive, all smoky bacon flavor spiked with the hot peppers and just a touch of vinegar for a subtle tang.

Roasted Red Pepper & Jalapeno Cheddar Spread

A few months ago, this little recipe from Bon Appetit caught my eye. They called it Roasted Jalapeno Pimiento Cheese Toasts, but since there is absolutely no Pimiento in the recipe, I changed up the name. I thought this would be a perfect whip together no-brainer recipe for a Holiday buffet or pre-dinner appetizer.
