Tuna Stuffed Jalapeño Peppers


Salt & Pepper
Jalapeños Peppers (canned or jarred)


Mix tuna and mayo as you would for a sandwich.  Add salt & pepper to taste.  (I like to add capers to mine, too). 

Cut ends off jalapeños and cut each pepper in half, lengthwise.  Stuff with tuna mixture.  Serve cold.

Mini Baked Potato Bites

I heard about this recipe from Dawn who found it on the Noble Pig website.  (My picture doesn't do it justice, but this is a cooking blog and not a photography blog!  If you want to see a good picture (that actually looks as good as it tastes!), click the link for the Noble Pig website.)  I just happened to have some tiny red potatoes, bacon and sour cream on hand, so I decided to try it out.  Very simple and very filling.  Here's how you make them:


Red potatoes, small
Sour Cream
Cheddar cheese, shredded
Bacon, crumbled
(or whatever toppings you prefer or have on hand)


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Scrub potato skins and pierce each potato with a fork several times. Place potatoes on a baking tray 1/2" apart. Bake until potatoes are easily pierced with a fork, about 30 minutes.

While still hot, make an opening with a knife and place a slab of butter on the potato followed by a dollop of sour cream. Top with cheese, bacon, chives or whatever toppings you have on hand!
