Bbq Grilling - Jalapenos Del Raton

My dad made these grilled poppers and I begged for the recipe. Now everyone begs me for the recipe. They are stuffed with cream cheese and sausage, wrapped in turkey bacon, and grilled--the perfect balance of flavors, and not always super spicy. The spiciness depends on the peppers. I find that the smaller they are, the hotter they are.

Herbs And Spices - Springerle Vi

Soft at first, these cookies harden into 'dunkers' after about 3 weeks. (Yes, they keep a long time!) They need a mold for the traditional Pennsylvania Dutch cookie, but I bet that they can be made by simply cutting them out. You can substitute other flavorings for anise - lemon and almond are good.

Bbq Grilling - Smoky Four Pepper Salsa

This is an easy smoky salsa that uses 4 kinds of peppers, both sweet and hot. It can be adjusted to any degree of heat that you like!

Seafood - Slippery Shrimp

Shrimp are deep-fried and served with a flavorful spicy stir-fry. After becoming mildly obsessed, I replicated this restaurant dish.

The classic combination of tomato and basil gets a hearty makeover with the addition of toasted whole wheat bread cubes in this Italian salad.
