Sip It :: Jalapeno Lemon Martini

 

Jalapeno Martini

 

It’s spring, which means the Mr. and I have gotten dirty replanting our garden. We have a pepper box that never fails to produce WAY more jalapenos than we can consume. We eat them raw, stuffed, chopped, pickled and baked into bread. It was only a matter of time before we figured out how to drink them too.

disclaimer: you shouldn’t drink this if you don’t like a little heat

 The first step is to infuse your vodka (this will take about 10 minutes).

Once your vodka is infused, it’s as simple as shaking it over ice!

Serve it :: Bacon French Fries

Bacon French Fries | Thoughtfully Simple

 What? I had you at bacon. I figured that might happen.

I recently decided since everything is better with bacon, that must be true about french fries as well. I was right, these babies are deliciously sinful. The bacon flavor combined with the crispy fry …. so good. Dip them in your favorite dipping sauce (recipe for this Sriracha mayo below) and you have a winner.

One of my secrets is to make super cute desserts that look like they took a lot of effort. These Valentine’s Day desserts took 15 minutes tops and put a huge smile on my girls’ faces when they got home from school. They are super simple to make!

All you’ll need is graham cracker crumbs, fudge or chocolate pudding and M&Ms. By the way can we discuss the new cherry flavored M&M’s? They are soooo good. I may have eaten a few the whole bag.
