We grew a ton of jalapeno peppers this year and they are so much hotter than the ones from the store. I made this dip last weekend and it was a big hit. We’ve put this stuff on everything!! We’ve used it as a chip dip, put it on baked potatoes, and on sautéed zucchini. It’s so delish! Just throw everything together in a food processor and blend it until smooth. Serve immediately or refrigerate for an hour to let the flavors mix together. I have a hard time waiting!!
Our favorite side dish in our family is mashed potatoes. We tend to add a little bit of everything into them once they are mashed. In this version that I made, I added some cream cheese, a dash of milk, little bit of butter, salt and pepper, cilantro, parmesan cheese, and french onion dip.
One of my go-to make ahead dinners for the week is this easy and quick cheesy chicken and rice casserole. Not only is it good but you can easily mix it up with different things added to it. (The part that I like the best about it is the yellow mustard it gives it a unique taste.)
I can’t seem to keep up with Bananas lately before they start getting overly ripe. I started making Banana Bread because my kids like it but also because it is very easy to make. Here is a very simple recipe for the Banana Bread I use regularly. You can easily add different ingredients to make it your own. For example, nuts or different kinds of chocolate chips
As part of our farm share this summer, we got some cayenne peppers. I had never grown cayenne peppers and really didn’t know what to do with them. I don’t think that many of our fellow farm sharers knew what to do with them either because instead of rationing them out like all the other produce, they were in a box that said “help yourself”. So, I took a bunch……about 200. I did a little research and realized that there were two things that we eat pretty regularly that are made from cayenne peppers……crushed red pepper flakes and Frank’s Red Hot sauce
