There is a new spread out called Reese’s Spreads! It’s my new go to for snacking in my house. My daughter is the biggest snacker in our house. Due to color guard practice she burns out all her energy telling me she is always hungry! She said food is her boyfriend, her bae. Yes, she obviously gets it from me :) We made these Toasted Reese’s Fruit Skewers.

While we were shopping at Walmart she was like LOOK mom they have Reese’s Spreads. Of course, we chowed down on the apples they paired it with for the demo. I knew right away what I would make with the Reese’s Spreads. They are brand new but the ideas just started to flow the minute I saw them. I went with a snack here though as I wanted something simple and fun that you make as a snack or appetizer year round or for the holidays.

Baja Chicken Soup

Love this Baja Chicken Soup! It is completely simple to make. It comes together quick on a week night when I really don’t feel like cooking. Yes, I do have those days when cooking or even moving from my bed is a issue. Now and again I cook from cans. It’s one of those deals that I only keep certain canned food in the house. Tomatoes, beans, and corn are alright in my book coming from a can. You won’t find much else canned in my house. Maybe spinach for a quick side dish; the kids like it. 

Baja Chicken Soup | Mooshu Jenne

If allowed I would add spring onions and avocado to every dish. Fresh spring onions just have a mountain of flavor that I love. Avocado is just a fruit I grew up eating in California. It’s my nature to gravitate towards it. What’s great about baja chicken soup is it’s perfect for spring. It’s not a heavy soup which allows it function well during the non wintry season. What spring and summer soups do you like to make? 

Baja Chicken Soup | Mooshu Jenne

I always love chicken in my soup but I am not a real fan of ground beef in soups. To me ground beef belongs in a goulash or maybe a stew. Do you like ground beef in soups?

As I am writing this post the news is coming across that there is a Tornado warning at the Daytona 500. I hope everyone is safe. I remember the year we had tornado warnings at Texas Motor Speedway. We sat in the lot waiting and listening to the scanner as they talked about what to do in case it did it. Some of the chatter was actually pretty funny. 

Baja Chicken Soup | Mooshu Jenne

I do have excited news. I finally got a new car. I am hoping to do a post soon all about it. The guys at the other half’s work where we got the car want me to bring them some food. What would you bring a shop full of guys and some sales men to eat? Cupcakes maybe? Anywho, here is the recipe for the soup. Hope all of you enjoy it; I did!

Game Day Pizza #GameTimeGoodies

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and their client DiGiorno.

Tomorrow night is game time! Which team are you routing for? We are cheering for San Francisco tomorrow night. While watching the football game you have to snack on something, in which, I created game day pizza with these slices from a DiGiorno’s pizza. We used the Rising Crust Pepperoni so we could add some of our favorite toppings that they do not currently sell. We added peperoncini’s and red onions for a bit of zing. I picked up the pizza’s at Walmart due to the rollback on them for $4.50 which is two for $9. Can’t beat that! 

Game Day Pizza #GameTimeGoodies

Who will you be routing for this Sunday; West Coast? San Francisco has always been my team. Chancelor would be all for New Orleans but they are not in this one. He might pick the opposing team just for fun. Does that happen in your house? We are preparing for the big game coming soon. Probably save the sausage DiGiorno pizza we bought for the big game to pair with other appetizers. Maybe some fried pickles and hot wings. Pizza and hot wings are the ultimate football food. What is your ultimate football food? Do you have plans for the big game?

DiGiornio Walmart

The problem with eating pizza during the game comes when a touchdown happens. Magically the pepperoni and toppings go flying in the air. This also happens during a race. Especially when someone takes out my driver. It must be the Italian in me that the hands go flying and plenty of words escape my mouth in utter gibberish.  Do you encounter sports incidents like that?

Game Day Pizza #GameTimeGoodies

 I cannot wait until February when the racing season is back. I am pretty sure the daughter and I will take off to the race here in April. In the meantime, we will look forward to the big game, the commercials, and the food.  I will look forward to teasing Chancelor about the opposing team unless by some awkward moment he decides to route for the same team. Mmmm… I smell pizza; time for another slice. Don’t forget to follow along for more recipes at #GameTimeGoodies.

Gortons Logo

We don’t often eat seafood in our home since my daughter is allergic. I love that I can get Gorton’s and eat it separately on a baking sheet she does not use in order to have my seafood fix. I love their popcorn shrimp. With the holidays around the corner they make appetizers super easy. These shrimp peperoncini appetizer spoons are simple to put together in under 20 minutes. Great for a last minute gathering.

Buttermilk Fried Pickles #SundaySupper

Buttermilk fried pickles is a recipe I make every Superbowl to start off the feast. The first few years I made these I used beer batter, regular flour, and a tons of spices. The spices have stayed but the beer and the flour changed after trying various recipes through out the years.

buttermilk fried pickles

The first and foremost important tip to remember is to get Vlasic as these pickles are crisp. You MUST have a crisp pickle to make them or they will fall apart when frying. The flavor or spice of the pickle is up to you. I have fried up dill pickles but this year I am putting a twist on the traditional favorite by using bread and butter pickles. Along with that change I used cake flour and buttermilk to bread the pickles. The cake flour is light and airy. It creates the perfect batter and the buttermilk helps the flour to attach in flaky layers. Paprika and cayenne pepper are a must for seasoning!

  2. In a skillet or deep saute pan, add oil and heat to a medium heat for frying.
  3. In medium sized bowl, add cake flour and spices; whisk until spices are integrated. Toss a few pickles in flour batter at a time. Add pickles to frying pan and fry for about 30 seconds to a 1 minute on each side. They will cook fast! If the batter starts to brown fast then turn down the heat a little. Drain pickles on a paper towel. Serve with ranch dressing or ranch dipping sauce.

Shepherd’s Hand Pies

Yes, I love pie! Oddly enough I prefer cherry or meat pies. These Shepherd’s Hand Pies feature shepherd’s pie in a handmade pie crust. The can be made with beef, chicken  or just vegetarian. Creativity with this recipe is your friends. The more intricate the ingredients the richer the flavors. I make these with beef and onion as the flavors just fall together. For vegetarians mushrooms, carrots, potatoes, onion, celery, and corn make a pie. For the gravy just use cooked carrots and blend them in a blender with a bit of heavy whipping cream. They make a fantastic gravy that is full of color and nutrients. If your a chicken fan you can do chicken with a chicken gravy and matching vegetables. If you really want to jump out of the box you can use crawfish or crab meat to make a seafood rendition.

Shepherd's Hand Pies

Hand pies are delicious fresh or they can be frozen to heat up later on another occasion. This makes them perfect for movie night or for weeknight TV shows you don’t want to miss; such as Supernatural, Vampire Diaries, Haven, Grimm, and Once Upon a Time. Hmm… did I leave one out? Oh! Of course our beloved The Walking Dead. Do have to say I have been waiting for them to kill off the annoying blonde and the governor. Just not a fan of nut jobs.

Speaking of Vampire Diaries, is anyone else tired of the poor Elena thing? I am. Let’s get on with it. Damon and Elena should be together. Let Tyler hook up with the wolf chic from Secret Circle, and the judgmental Stefan and Caroline should end up together. Maybe spin off some weird love relationship with Klaus and Bonnie as they will both soon hate the new professor in town.

Anywho! Back to the pies.

Thanksgiving is a time of togetherness, family, and the season that prepares us for Christmas. Fall is my favorite season of the year! The trees change colors, everyone is cooking or baking, and the air is busy with cheer. The pumpkin, which is a super squash, decorates yards with a multitude of colors and scarecrows dance in the wind! Most of all, I love the Macy’s Day Parade! I love picking out my favorites and feeling like a kid again with my teenagers. It is very important to always have a bit of kid left in you.

Roasted Jalapeno Soup

A few college semesters ago, a friend of mine took me out to lunch. I had never been to Rockfish but I love seafood and thought it was worth a shot. We decided to just have a couple of appetizers. After a glance through the menu I stumbled upon a jalapeno soup on the menu and just knew I had to try it. When the bowl came out to my dismay it was white and creamy! Creamy jalapeno soup? Yes, it was strange but after a few bites I was completely hooked. That’s the inspiration behind this Roasted Jalapeno Soup

Roasted Jalapeno Soup

I decided to try and replicate it at home. If not replicate it at least come up with a tasty jalapeno soup. This is a simple and healthy lunch that can be served with crackers, croutons, or bread. This soup doesn’t take to long to make other then waiting for it to thicken. Roasting the peppers makes them soft for eating and just gives this soup so much flavor. 

Roasted Jalapeno SoupYou can see here what the peppers look like before and after they are roasted. There is no need to remove the skin. You definitely want to remove the ribbing and seed though or your mouth is going to be on fire!

Roasted Jalapeno Soup

Roasted jalapeno soup only has a bit of a bite to it. It’s not very spicy as the heavy whipping cream tones it down. It’s great for a sore throat too. Heat that yuck right out of you!  This soup is also good to serve as a beginning course to a meal especially seafood. Just having this soup makes me crave fried shrimp and coleslaw. Probably one of the best start soups. Not sure how I would end that meal though. Maybe some salted caramel cheesecake. What dessert would you make?
