Stuffed Jalapeno Firecrackers

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
I like spicy, but I think fresh jalapenos are sometimes a little too spicy. I seeded the jalapenos, which rendered them completely un-spicy. I should have known better. I also had trouble getting the bacon crispy to my liking. I baked at 350 for 20 min. first to crisp up the bacon and to help with the jalapeno heat, which wasn't an issue at all. It was mostly crispy but in some places still fatty and raw-looking. I used a broiler pan so the fat could drip off and it would crisp up better. I thought it wouldn't need turned in that case, but I was wrong. I didn't put on much cajun spice because again, I didn't want it to be too spicy. Next time I will leave some seeds and membranes in, will use larger jalapenos, and will add more cajun spice. I will still bake first, but I will flip them often to get all sides evenly crispy. Overall a good recipe but I was slightly disappointed.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
I don't understand the reviews stating that this was messy or time consuming. It took me 20 minutes, and that's with a toddler nipping at my heels. I stuck them in the freezer to harden, and that took 5 minutes. I had the perfect amount of chocolate and filling. I easily brushed the melted chocolate up the sides of the cups. I think it's important to cut the paper liners in half. Then you just barely have to push the chocolate up the edge. These would be better with milk chocolate, but I had to use semi-sweet dairy-free, and they were still delicious.

Old-Fashioned Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
This is delicious. I was worried about making it dairy-free for an allergy, but it worked perfectly. I used coconut milk (Thai Kitchen and So Delicious) and Earth Balance butter.
