Jalapeno Cranberry Bombs

Jalapeno Cranberry Bombs are a slightly spicy baked dough filled with ham, swiss cheese, cranberry sauce and pickled jalapeno peppers.  Cranberry sauce is such a take it or leave it item. Most people add it to their Thanksgiving dinner spread but rarely is it the first thing to disappear from […]

SRC: Monte Cristo Roll Ups

I was assigned to Cheesecurd in Paradise for December’s Secret Recipe Club reveal. Cheesecurd in Paradise is written by Ashley who lives in Wisconsin. I’ve actually “known” Ashley for a while now, we’re on the same cooking board together. I always love the recipes she shares there so I knew […]
