Yummy Spicy Chicken Stuffed Sweet Peppers

These spicy chicken stuffed peppers are yummy and easy to make. I whipped them up in seriously 15 minutes. and I don't have skillz :)

Warning: This dish is *highly customizable* - I hope you don't mind. :)

What you will need:
- a food processor
- toothpicks
- 2 chicken breasts*
- 2 jalapenos*
- smoked chipotle tabasco sauce
- 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese*
- 20 sweet peppers

*the meat, pepper and cheese that you stuff with can be whatever you have on hand

1. Cook chicken breasts, and chop it up in the food processor to your ground consistency of choice.
2. Dump chicken into a stove top pan on low heat.
3. Put two jalapenos (I didn't seed or core mine because I like the heat) coarsely chopped into the food processor to chop more. Add jalapenos to the ground chicken in the pan.
4. Add 1 cup of shredded cheese.
5. Add 2-3 tablespoons of smoked chipotle tabasco sauce.
6. Heat up on pan and stir until cheese has melted and the mixture is all mixed up and conformable.
7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
8. Cut the tops off of your sweet peppers and core. This sounds like a pain but the cores on these peppers are not deep and it is easy. Keep the tops because you'll need them later.
9. Stuff the peppers using a spoon or your fingers. Stuff it full.
10. Put the pepper tops back on the peppers and secure the tops with toothpicks.
11. Spray non-stick spray on a cookie tray (COOKIE?!?!?!) and put the peppers on the tray.
12. Bake the peppers for 20 minutes, flipping the peppers midway through.

This would also be good with sausage, ground beef or turkey. Really whatever meat you have on hand.

How to be a Housewife (Without Feeling Like a Slave)

Now, don't get the wrong idea here... I'm not sending a passive aggressive message out there to men (do men even read blogs?) that women hate doing house duties. We love it - right, ladies??? (wink, wink) And I'm not complaining either. (Although I do despise laundry, I love a clean house; so it's a double-edged sword.) One thing I'm BIG on is positive thinking . Sometimes, it is hard to be positive if you are feeling overwhelmed with dishes, laundry, cleaning, cooking... oh yeah... LIVING IN and maintaining a home. So, I thought sharing my thoughts on this topic could maybe help some disgruntled wifeys out there. 1) Don't hate, delegate - I'm a huge fan of starting young with manageable tasks around the home. There are a bunch of lists floating around the interwebs of chore lists for kiddos, and a lot of them are pretty dang silly (one suggests letting a 2-3 year old put dishes away, um no!)  -- but my favorite one is from Kids Activities Blog.  2) B

Maybe It's Just Easier To Be Lonely

As a busy, working and social mom of two young hellions, I am constantly teetering on the balance of completely and utterly (and not fabulously, might I add) losing my sh-word. Man, what a starter. What an intro! Hello, welcome to my blog. My name is Tara, and I’m completely crazy. I use the term “hot mess” way more than socially acceptable; in fact, there are times that I use the phrase, in reference to myself, and I can literally HEAR someone’s thoughts of annoyance in me. But, I digress. But, it’s true! I’m about one bad day away from flipping out hardcore. Part of it is my innate nature to be involved in *everything.* Combine that with my inherent disability to saying “no,” and it’s a recipe for… you guessed it… “hot-mess-ness.” Totally a word I made up and use… a lot. As I look at my planner (that I am obsessed with - who else have to have their lives written down somewhere or else they have NO IDEA what they are supposed to do that day?!), I realize…. “Dang, I am

How Not to Raise an Asshole

Guys, you know how I am. I tell it like I see it. And these days, I see a LOT of two things: asshole adults and asshole kids who will grow up to be asshole adults. Not raising an asshole requires work , so if you aren't interested in some blood, sweat and tears, then close your browser, and don't forget to write a rude comment on your way out. Let me preface this by saying: these suggestions are being made from my professional side, not my parenting side--- let's be real, the verdict is still out on whether my kids will grow up to be assholes or not (just kidding... over my dead body will they be entitled, dependent adults)... but still, the important distinction of point-of-view needs to be mentioned. Here are some ways not to raise an asshole: 1) Teach them how to do stuff. You know how kids don't come with an instruction manual? Well, neither does growing up. Kids learn from example how to do almost everything - show them how to do things! Don't just
