Jalapeno Grilled Chicken


Sunday is our day to roam. Sometimes we have a destination in mind, others we are just enjoying being out of the house and together. Today’s ride took us along a stretch of road in Southern New Hampshire that is made up of farmland. The fields are tilled for corn to be planted. The farm stands have opened and signs boast the local wares that are ready. Today what drew me in was “OUR OWN ASPARAGUS AND RHUBARB”.

Those found their way into my basket pretty quickly, along with some honey sticks for my son, scallions, and strawberry milk from another local farm. We keep a cooler in the back of the truck so after a quick stop for ice, we were on our way, the sunroof open, windows down, talking about what we could make with our bagful of goodies.

At home, I decided on a tried & true, family favorite for dessert- Strawberry Rhubarb Crunch . I put that together and got it into the oven, then went to work on some mashed purple potatoes. After they were fork tender, I drained them and moved them to a glass bowl, keeping the water simmering on the stove. The rest of my meal was going to be cooked outside, and putting the bowl of finished potatoes on top of the simmering water would keep them warm while I was finishing up

I’d marinated some chicken in the morning. I used half lime juice, and since I’m the only heat lover, I split the mixture so that one bowl had jalapenos and one didn’t. I marked the “hot” ones with toothpicks so I could keep track of them. With about 20 mins to go, I grilled a combination of the asparagus from the farm and red bell pepper, tossed with salt, pepper and olive oil on a foil liner.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time! ************************* Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon & Cheddar Omelette Bites Print With Image Without Image Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Ingredients 4 large eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 3T shredded cheddar cheese 1 slice cooked ba

Buttermilk Rhubarb Muffins #MuffinMonday

This is the first year I've been able to harvest the rhubarb from my garden. Today I got three nice sized, very red stalks so went searching for a recipe and came up with these Buttermilk Rhubarb Muffins from Taste of Home.  I upped the amount of nutmeg to 1/2 teaspoon and also added 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. I took about 1/4 cup of the flour called for in the recipe and tossed it with the rhubarb to keep it from sinking, a trick I learned from my Gram.  I  use a cookie scoop to distribute the batter evenly. I also topped the batter with raw sugar before baking, we love the sparkle and crunch it gives the muffins. Thank you so much to Stacy for hosting and to all of the other #MuffinMonday bakers for sharing their recipes, be sure to check them out using the links down below!

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick
