Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeño Popper Chicken Recipe

My husband pulled me aside after dinner & said “THANK YOU for remembering this bacon-wrapped jalapeño popper chicken recipe. I’d forgotten & it is SO GOOD.”

Chicken pot pie is one of those foods I’ve always loved. It’s warm and creamy, there’s just the right amount of chicken, lots of vegetables, and a perfect crust to include a bit of in every bite, like a biscuity condiment. But I haven’t made it in ages, because my “go-to” recipe involved canned “Cream

Cooking for myself and a toddler (while my husband is deployed) is SO different than cooking for all 3 of us. Especially since my husband takes leftovers to work for lunch. So I’ve been focusing on trying to make 3 categories of dinners for Anneliese and myself, to avoid eating the same leftovers for a

Fettuccine schmettuccine. Who needs pasta? Not me! Even before I “found Primal” over 3 years ago, when I was a HARDCORE PASTA LOVER, something funny happened. I’d make a “pasta thing” which would have noodles of some sort, sauce, veggies, and sometimes a meat. Then I’d try to get more of the “good stuff” (i.e.,

You know those bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers that are filled with cream cheese? I could eat about 100 of them at a time. I LOVE them. But I rarely make them because carefully scooping all of the seeds out of the jalapenos is a bit time consuming, and I’m always afraid I’ll get pepper juice in

I was so excited to try this recipe from Real Simple. I’m a sucker for lemony things, skin-on chicken, and any excuse to eat roasted garlic. The first time was a bust though. I’ve cooked lemon slices like this before (the original recipe has you put them in the bottom of the baking dish), and

Better Homes and Gardens is one of my favorite magazines. I mostly ignore the garden stuff because of my black thumbs, but the rest of the magazine is lovely. Organization, décor, some nice editorials, recipes… even though most of the recipes are far from grain-free, usually there is one per magazine I tend to rip

I came across this recipe on pinterest, which is adapted from this recipe at The Kitchn. It’s for southern-style chicken and dumplings. You know, the kind you get at Cracker Barrel. Like Emily’s husband (hey, that’s my name!), that’s what I ordered at Cracker Barrel EVERY SINGLE TIME we would go. Because it’s amazing and

I’m not a big fan of KIWI magazine – it’s one of those natural parenting types which would be nice (I miss Mothering), but it’s pretty “conventional wisdom” and seems to push the idea that veganism and vegetarianism are awesome, noble, super-healthy ways of eating. Still though, they have good articles and recipes here and

I wanted to make a soup with a beef stock / tomato juice base, and also had leftover chicken from making Vampire Chicken earlier this week. So this happened. And it was good. Chicken Beef-ish Veggie Soup Ingredients: lots of butter 2 onions, diced 3-4 medium carrots, diced 1 cup green beans, fresh or frozen

So I’m not sure where I first heard of Vampire chicken, but I think maybe it was from The Wilderness Childe. Anyway, it’s quite simple: basically chicken, herbs, and a ton of garlic (enough to keep vampires far, FAR away) in the crock pot, and given my love of garlic, I had to try it
