Pioneer Woman's Jalapeno Poppers

On the recommendation of an internet buddy I recently purchased the Pioneer Woman's cookbook.  I was drooling after just a couple of recipes as this lady cooks my language.  I've kept the cookbook in my car and while waiting for this and that I'd take a peek at a page or two and think to myself "oh mama that looks so good".  I knew I had found a keeper, a cookbook that I would hold on to for a long time.


Mr. Hubby and I are attending an annual event with some football friends at the coaches home tonight, its our annual Pretzel Making Party.  Always fun and in addition to the pretzels we'll undoubtedly OD on everyone usually brings something to add to the table.  I decided to give Ree's BBQ Jalapeno Poppers  Click Here For Recipe .  If you follow the link you will find the recipe and great pictures that accompany the recipe instructions so I won't bother to replicate. Well actually most of you know my photo capabilities so there would certainly be no enhancing what Ree has already provided.

To serve these little bites of heaven (well I had to try one to make SURE they were good) I just pulled out a round silver tray which you really don't see and cut a round out of freezer paper to cover the tray.  I cut the edge of the freezer paper so that it curled a little to give the serving tray a little extra pizazz.  In the middle I filled a small canning jar with extra BBQ sauce for anyone who might need a little more.

All I can say is I will be taking several kitchen adventures with more of the recipes out of this book.   I wasn't really planning on wearing a swimming suit this summer anyway.

I have her cookbook too and have lightened a few just a bit but hubby is in love with her recipes. He says it's food like his mama made and she is 86. Must not be too bad for us.

I need to remember this recipe this summer when I have loads of jalapenos in the garden. I'm sure that the guys loved this dish!

I've seen this recipe several times over the last few months, so it must be some kinda good. I'll have to give it a try.

Hi Miss Char, these do look good but a little bit of work because I would have to remove ever last seed to ge trid of the bite! But my own miss Char loves the heat and she is coming home soon so this would be a good recipe to make with her! Thanks for finding it for us. Linda

Poppers are such a great appetizer for a party. These look delicious. What a great idea to keep it in the car and read when you have time.
