Super Bowl Jalapeno Poppers

Living in Texas, football is kind of a big deal. People are die-hard fans of either high school, college, or professional teams – and sometimes of all three! I became a football fan when I moved to Texas the first time, way back in… Continue Reading “Super Bowl Jalapeno Poppers”

Stuffed Acorn Squash
