Jalapeno Frenzy for Father’s Day

My dad and my husband both love to grill!  I love it because I love cooked out food and I love that I don’t have to cook!

One thing that we all like when we cook out are Jalapeno Poppers so I thought I would post several ideas with Jalapenos.

The Pioneer Woman has a similar recipe to our Jalapeno Poppers.

Here is a great appetizer recipe for Jalapeno Jelly.

My Dad loves peanut brittle but here is a new one to try…

Jalapeño Beer Brittle

Spray a large cookie sheet with cooking spray and place an oven set to “warm.” Combine one cup white sugar, a half-cup corn syrup, a quarter-teaspoon salt, one-third cup beer (preferably dark beer), and one or two chopped, seeded jalapeños in a large saucepan. Bring to boil over medium-high heat, and then attach a candy thermometer to saucepan. Stir often until temperature reaches 300 degrees F. (Keep a close eye on it after 280 degrees, Porter says. “The temperature has a tendency to race up at that point.”)

Remove the pan from heat and add one teaspoon baking soda and two tablespoons butter, stirring until incorporated. Quickly add in a cup and a half of roasted, salted peanuts and stir until completely coated. Remove cookie sheet from oven, and pour brittle out onto it. Use two buttered forks to pull the brittle mixture out from the center, until it is thinly spread and relatively even. Cool completely and then break into pieces.

I am not sure if I would try this one…

To all of the great Dad’s (especially mine!)…  Have a wonderful weekend!

Tie it up for Father’s Day

What father hasn’t received a tie from their children at some point?  I remember picking out a special tie for my dad when I was younger and being so very proud of it!  This year make your celebration into a “tie”  day for dad.

Here are some great ideas for a tie cake.

I love this banner from My Insanity that was incorporated into a Tie-riffic day.

Head of the Table had some great ideas for a table setting.

What would Father’s Day be without a tie…
