R is for: Ravioli {mushroom & leek}

RAVIOLIS!!

I've been saying this for weeks.

So excited to make homemade ravioli. Ever since I made homemade spaghetti with my pasta attachment for my Kitchenaid mixer, I couldn't wait to get my hands on some sutffed pasta.

As my faithful blog readers are aware, I was recently abiding by a strict, low-carb diet for a couple months. I'm not necessarily going fully off-diet and eating whatever I want, but our unofficial deadline of our Mexico trip sort of sealed the cutoff for strict no-carb living.

Enter these delightful pillows of pasta dough and mushrooms and cheese and butter.

MMMMMMM.

Q is for: Quesarito {with Chipotle copycat steak/chicken & cilantro rice}

Get ready to have your mind blown.

Ready?

There is secret menu at Chipotle.

I know, right?

I mean, we all know about the secret menu at In N Out (animal style FTW), but this takes things to another level.

If you were already aware of this amazing fact, then I apologize for the letdown. If you were in the dark, as I was... well, then you're welcome.

Especially because one of the things on this secret menu is something called a "quesarito." A burrito. Wrapped in a quesadilla.

Mind. Blown. Again.

Now I realize for blog purposes, that is not much of a recipe, (more of a genius suggestion... sort of like my suggestion to also use quesadillas for taco shells), so I decided to also try my hand at recreating the cilantro lime rice and the grilled steak/chicken that I often get inside my chipotle burritos (or more often these days... burrito bowls).

P is for: Peeps Jelly Shots {for Easter}

A million apologies for the blog hiatus recently.

Not that I'm one to make excuses, but I'm going to give you a bunch of excuses right now. I was in Miami for work, then Mexico for a wedding, and today, I finish up a stretch of working eleven in a row.

But tomorrow is Easter!

And I am excited to say I have the day off and will be spending it in NYC with my boyfriend's family.

I will not be bringing these jelly shots (I'm bringing strawberry ones).

But YOU should! This play on the popular marshmallow Easter treat uses marshmallow vodka! To "peep" these Peeps jelly shots, hop on over to Tablespoon. Happy Easter!

P is for: Poppers {chip-crusted jalapenos stuffed with bacon & cheese}

As much as I love the simplicity of the jalapeno poppers I often make on the grill, I'm really loving this new version.

It's a little more involved, as it uses three types of cheese (cheeeeeeese), bacon (duh), and are encrusted in delicious tortilla chips (bonus!)

Also, I baked them instead of frying, so they're totttttalllly healthy. (JK, not at all. But they are less messy than frying).

They are, however, almost as easy as regular ol' poppers... with just a few extra ingredients and steps.

To get the recipe, just head on over to Tablespoon and get poppin'!

P is for: PB&J Grilled Cheese with Bacon Jam

Don't you dare.

Don't you DARE knock this genius creation until you've tried it.

I know what you're thinking.

"Peanut Butter & Jelly... grilled cheese??"

Yes.

And it's heavenly.

Think about it... two of your favorite childhood sandwiches combined in the most delightful of ways to create a super gourmet, adult grilled cheese.

Plus, April is National Grilled Cheese month, so it's a time to celebrate and reinvent the beloved grilled cheese and take it to new heights.
