A delicious twist on Jalapeno Poppers

How is your January going? I hope great! I can't believe we're almost to February! Time just passes so fast!

We've not had much luck with our kitchen appliances this month. First our dishwasher went out the week before New Year's. It was replaced sometime the week after. Then our oven burner decided to catch on fire and break in two. So we we're down an oven for a few days. Our dryer also went out but my husband was able to fix it thanks to You Tube and a very helpful local appliance store. Those videos can be very helpful in learning to do something. I know I learn best by being shown instead of reading a manual. So, now that everything is working again, I hope to start cranking out some new recipes.

Speaking of new recipes....If you haven't discovered Pinterest yet, you're missing out! It's such a neat site and I have enjoyed looking for new recipes, organization tips and more on there. You do have to be invited to join. You can either be invited by someone or request one from the site. Let me know if you need an invite!

Today's recipe was found on Pinterest and it was wonderful!

Jalapeno Stuffed Crescent Bites
2 8oz cans of crescent rolls
1 8 oz pkg of cream cheese
2-3 jalapenos, seeded and diced
6 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Unroll the first can of crescent rolls and you should have 8 triangles. With a pizza cutter, cut each of these triangles in half. So instead of 8 triangles, you should have 16. On each piece, place a dollop of of cream cheese, then a few pieces of jalapeno (I generally did 3 pieces but I think next time I would do a couple more), and a bit of bacon. Fold the corners over and make sure everything is sealed so that the filling won't come out. Repeat with the second can of crescent rolls. Then place on a baking sheet (I used a baking stone) and bake for 10-15 minutes. Enjoy!

These were really good! They were also easy to make. You could adjust things as you want, add more bacon or jalapeno, etc. I meant to take more pictures while I was assembling them but was short on time so I wasn't able to. You can find the original recipe and more pictures here. Hope you enjoy!

Happy eating!
