Tacos! One of my favorite things to put recipe twists on! Whether it’s Taco Spaghetti, Taco Soup or Taco Dip, I love finding new & different ways to eat tacos!

The Taco Ring was introduced to me when I was 12 years old and my Mom took me to a Pampered Chef party. (And people wonder why I love cooking so much!) We made taco rings at the party and the recipe instantly became a favorite at the Bond house!

Over the years I’ve put my own spin on the taco ring, with a buffalo chicken version and a breakfast version

For this recipe, I kept it classic, but added two of my favorite taco mix-ins, onions and bell peppers!

Jalapeno Popper Pigs in a Blanket

Combine two appetizer favorites into one with jalapeno popper pigs in a blanket! Roasted jalapenos are filled with cheese and little smokies, then wrapped in crescent rolls for an easy recipe that is sure to impress your friends!

Jalapeno Popper Pigs in a Blanket on a Green Plate with Ranch Dressing

One of my favorite things to do when creating new recipes is to combine two favorite dishes into one amazing new dish!

I was inspired to make this recipe after seeing something similar on a menu in Washington DC at Fat Pete’s BBQ. Their version featured jalapenos, stuffed with cream cheese, topped with a little smokie, then wrapped in bacon.

I decided to go more traditional with my pigs in a blanket and wrap the entire thing in crescent rolls, but I have no doubt that bacon would also be an amazing choice!

The real debate was what to call this little appetizer, the best idea I heard from friends was “Pigs in a Popper”, so cute and perfect for this appetizer mash-up!

I was originally inspired to create this delicious breakfast treat when my bestie Amy (fabulous fashion blogger!) said “You have to try the pumpkin filled croissants at Starbucks!” I was immediately on board with this, but when I arrived at my beloved  Starbucks, there were no pumpkin filled croissants, only pumpkin muffins, scones and bread.

I then remembered one of my favorite breakfast treats of all time…. Blueberry Pastry Delights and thought, I could basically do the same thing, but with pumpkin instead of blueberries.  Two weeks later, here we are… sitting in the middle of Pumpkin Pastry heaven!

When I decided to serve Mexican food for my one year blog anniversary dinner I knew I had to stick with this cuisine throughout the whole meal, including the dessert.  So instead of baking a one year anniversary cake, I went with one year anniversary nutmeg and cream cheese stuffed sopapillas complemented by a delicious side of homemade coffee ice cream.

The result was an entire house that smelled like cinnamon heaven and a sweet, creamy, delicious dessert!

Crescent rolls, cream cheese, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, sugar, butter

  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 2 8 oz packages crescent rolls
  • 3 tbsp butter (melted)
  • 1/4 cup honey (not pictured/for topping)

Start by adding the cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tbsp cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla in a large mixing bowl.
