Mini Pepper Nachos

If you are looking for a healthy appetizer recipe then I’ve got one for you. I love good old fashioned nachos, but sometimes I want something a little more on the healthy side. That’s where these mini pepper nachos come in. They are exactly what it sounds like. You replace the chips for little adorable bell peppers. Then you top the little guys with whatever your heart desires, you know, all the typical nacho toppings. Keep in mind that the toppings determine if it’s truly a “healthy” appetizer. I used ground turkey and low fat cheese to stick with the …

Fall Charcuterie Board

Char… what? Shar-koo-ter-ee. I’m embarrassed to say that I can never quite say this term correctly. You can ask my husband to confirm that I’ve probably tried at least 7 different made up words for it. Thankfully he always knows what I’m talking about. I thought if I write out the pronunciation then maybe I’ll finally be able to say it correctly. Charcuterie is a French term for a type of cooking that specializes in prepared meat products. So a charcuterie board is board filled with meats and other fun goodies that go along with them. I’m not sure if you’ve noticed …

Soft Pretzels

Homemade soft pretzels are awesome. Do you remember that I originally shared this recipe for soft pretzels back in 2014? I love them so much that I’m sharing them again.

However, this recipe has not changed because it’s still as great as it was back then. I want to give a big thank you to my husband because he made these pretzels. He’ll be the first to admit that these pretzels …

Cheese Beer Dip

Fall comfort food is in full swing in our home. When my husband found this recipe, we knew that we had to try it because it sounded amazing. I mean it’s hard to go wrong with cheese and beer. Guys, this stuff is seriously amazing. The flavor is mostly in the cheese and spices. I highly recommend pairing the cheese beer dip with some homemade soft pretzels. This reminded me and my husband of an appetizer that we shared on vacation last year at 3 Brasseurs in Montreal, Canada, which was amazing. We love being able to recreate great restaurant …

Cheese Board for Two

This is not a recipe. Grab your favorite cheese, crackers, bread, and seasonal fruit and voila. Voila, you have a cheese board. My husband asked me if people needed a recipe for a cheese board. I doubt it. Instead, I’m focusing on the idea. We’ve seen charcuterie boards, cheese boards, and even cookie boards for a crowd, but have you thought about doing one for you and your loved one? If yes, then great minds think alike. If not, then you’re welcome. With everything going on in the world, we aren’t entertaining and we aren’t eating out. However, we can …
