Jalapeños in a blanket!

Keeping up with the theme of hearty fall dishes, this is the appetizer that can warm us up from inside out. It is sweet, cheesy and spicy. Exactly what you need in the cold weather. This is very easy and simple to put to gather and is greatly loved in my family. I had whined a bit in my last post so not this time! I’ve just got on with life. Even though it is very difficult to wake up early in the morning, depressing to look outside of the window, life still goes on. Regardless of it’s hibernation. Cooler days inspire us to make warm, cosy foods that is adored by our families and that is the most comforting way to accept winter.

Wait a minute. What did I just do? I said no whining and I still did some whining! Any ways, here is the recipe. Enjoy.
