Jalapeño Popper Dip

2- 8 ounce packages cream cheese, room temp
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1- 4 ounce can chopped green chilies
1- 4 ounce can sliced jalapeños- double if you like heat
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 stick butter, melted

In a food processor add the first 6 ingredients and process until smooth. You do not need to drain either can of peppers. Spread

the dip into a greased 2 quart casserole. In a bowl mix bread crumbs and the other 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese. Pour melted butter

over top crumb mixture and mix well. Sprinkle crumb mixture evenly over the dip and bake in a 375° oven for about 20 minutes. You

want the top to get browned and the dip to be heated through and bubble gently on the edges. Do not over heat this dish or the

mayonnaise with separate and you will have a grease puddle in your dip. Serve with Buttery crackers or a sliced French baguette. Serves 8-10

Red Potatoes and Ham Casserole

Published 03/12/2012 by moonstrucksiren

I have seen a recipe similar to this to make in your crockpot, but I forgot to make it in the morning and only had

about 35 minutes before it was dinner time, so I improvised!
6-8 red potatoes (depending on the size- some are little and some are big)
2 cups cooked ham, cubed
1 can cream of potato soup
1 envelope dry Ranch salad dressing mix
8 oz cream cheese, softened
Chop potatoes into large cubes. Boil until softened. Mix potatoes with ham and put in a 9×13 dish. Beat together

soup, salad dressing mix, and cream cheese. Stir into potatoes and ham. Cover and cook for 30-35 minutes at 350 degrees.

Cadbury Crème Egg Cupcakes

Cadbury Creme Egg Cupcakes

Post image for Cadbury Creme Egg Cupcakes

YIELD: 24 cupcakes


24 paper cupcake liners
Batter for 24 cupcakes. Box mix works fine or simply use your favorite chocolate cupcake recipe, it’s your call.
48 Mini Cadbury Creme Eggs (24 frozen) You’ll use the frozen ones inside the cupcake batter. Freezing the eggs keeps them from completely vanishing inside the baked cake.
1 batch of buttercream frosting
yellow dye
Large Round piping tip or snip the end off of a piping bag.


1. Scoop batter into paper liner ⅔ of the way full. Place one frozen Mini Cadbury Creme Egg into the middle of each cupcake. Use a spatula to spread the batter over the egg.

2. Bake according to the recipe you are using. Allow cupcakes to cool completely.

3. While your cupcakes are cooking, make your buttercream. My favorite recipe can be found within this Fundamentals Buttercream Frosting Post.

4. Remove about 1 cup of buttercream from the mixing bowl and dye it yellow.

5. Assemble your piping bag fitted with a large tip and pipe a large circle around the perimeter of the cupcake.

6. Fill in the center of the circle with the yellow buttercream and top with a Mini Cadbury Cream Egg.
