Pig Skin Cheese Ball and Great Game Day Grub #FootballFood

     It's that fun time of year when we really get locked into football.  Even just kind of fans are suddenly paying attention.  Even non-fans are wondering what they should eat during the big game.  Even commercial watchers need to eat after all!  We start warming up for the big dance by making extra snacks during the playoffs.  We need to be good and ready, after all!

Devil's Food Cake


      It's Cake Slice time again!!  You knew it was bound to happen, didn't you?  A big tall chocolaty layer cake wrapped in a creamy chocolate frosting was coming.  It was just a matter of time!  I almost talked myself out of it.  In fact, I did talk myself out of it at least two or three times.  Who needs a three layer devils food cake?  I mean it is a TON of butter, and it was just Christmas... We survived 12 days of cookies, but how far do we want to push it.  Maybe you should just make one of the smaller cakes.  Doesn't a lemon cake sound lovely?

Fall Harvest Maple Baked Oatmeal



     It has been a little while since I shared a new baked oatmeal recipe.  But this is a great time of year to make a warm, hearty and healthy breakfast so it seemed time to make another batch.  Baked oatmeal is one of my favorite things to make with my little guy.  The measurements don't have to be super exact, the techniques are not difficult and it is something he can more or less do on his own with a little direction.

Peach Habanero Wings



    I have had my mind set on making chicken glazed with my Peach Habanero Jelly for quite some time now.  I love the sweet heat combo that the jelly brings.  It is perfect spread over cream cheese and crackers.  In fact it is always one of my favorites!  But, I just knew there had to be other ways to use it!

Warm and Cheesy Pulled Pork Dip

      When I posted the recipe for Pulled Pork Enchilada Verde Soup I promised a super amazing dip recipe using some more leftover pulled pork.  I think this leftover pulled pork is quickly becoming one of my favorite things to have on hand.  I actually just bought a couple more pork butts because they were on sale so cheap at the store... now I just need to talk my dad or brother into smoking them for me!  If nothing else, I can always braise it I suppose!
