Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
4 stars as is, I customized the recipe and give the changes a 5 Star + rating! I used neufchatel cheese (saved a calorie), which made it softer and not likely to form a ball. Guess what, now it's a dip(not a "bowl of mush" as other have described!)! I reduced the confect sugar by half, doubled the brown sugar, and added a tsp of vanilla, resulting in a more "cookie dough-like" flavor. I added 4 tablesp of powdered cocoa, and added the chopped pecans to the "dip" as well. OMG, this was fantastic! I served it at a party with salty mini pretzels, but my 2 1/2 yr old son and I ate bowls of it with spoons beforehand! SO DELICIOUS! LOVE IT AND WILL MAKE AGAIN AND AGAIN!

Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
Blanching the peppers is a GREAT tip! For those of you who like a little more heat, I suggest using older jalapenos rather than fresh off the vine. We grow several varieties of our own peppers, and have found that jalapenos and poblanos that are picked and sit in the fridge drawer a week are much hotter than fresh picked. Or, choose peppers that are turning orange, they are older and more picante! BTW, Poblanos are an excellent substitute, milder in flavor and heat, but can still pack a punch! Great recipe!
