It is with heaviness in my heart that I look at today’s date. Another year has gone by, and another Christmas season is drawing to a close; while, this year, I was anxious for Christmas to be over (thanks to my day job.)

Halloween Mummy Jalapeno Poppers

Cute foods are the best foods, right?! I think so, especially when it comes to appetizers. I mean if something is already supposed to be small then can’t it be cute right along with small. The holidays are the perfect time for cute appetizers, and I take full advantage of this glorious time of year. I get plenty of eye rolls from my husband. He just wants to eat, ya know. So this year I made something cute out of a food he likes – Halloween Jalapeno Poppers. I still got the eye rolls, but he ate all of them so I win.

As usual, there’s always a way to make these your own. I just can’t make a recipe that can’t be changed up to others personal preferences. I’m sure it’s because I’m could be what’s called a picky eater. I like options. With the Halloween Jalapeno Poppers it’s super easy to change up the eyes to any flavor you’d like. Siracha, ketchup, chocolate chips, candy eyes, olives, more peppers. Whatever you’d like! Whatever your guests like! Make some with each so you have options! Options are wonderful.

Orange Glazed Garlic Meatballs

Meatballs are one of my husband’s favorite meals. I had to include them in our Tapas Date Night that I put together in our backyard for some much needed quality time.

These meatballs are so savory and sweet at the same time. We love a lot of garlic, and the orange glaze fit right into our small plates dining for the night.  The orange glaze is really easy to prepare and makes such a difference. Meatballs are such yummy meal, but this gives it another spin for your regular meatball. You will not be able to stop eating these.
