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 fromKids Activities Blog.

Airport Travel: Diaper Bag Do's and Don't's

So, many of you know that in just two short days I will be traveling solo to Santa Fe, NM, from our home in Chicago. And with me, I am bringing my little bambina Beulah, all of her stuff, and a lot of prayers. Packing for this trip is like packing Madonna up for the zombie apocalypse. Beulah has A LOT OF STUFF.

We have done two big trips with her over the last almost 7 months. The first was a plane ride to Texas in October, when she was about 4 months old. I was with my husband. She promptly had blow-out diapers as soon as the plane took off both there and back. But, overall, it wasn't bad. We were headed to Texas (the best place EVER); we could have arrived covered head to toe in Beulah spit-up/poop/pee/whatever, and I wouldn't have cared!!!!! But I still packed a bunch of crap that I really didn't need for the plane ride. The second trip was a cross-country 15-ish hour drive from Chicago to Pennsylvania to see her big brother. Frequent stops for coffee and bottle water …

Tips on Survival with a Sick Baby

Any parent can tell you that life can be turned upside by a sick child. Sleepless nights, lots of crying (you and the baby!), routines are thrown out the window... it's just for the birds. And to make it even worse, you as a parent are playing a guessing game of what is ailing your child specifically in some instances.

So, I don't know about y'all, but this winter season has been a real fun one for Boo. We have had 4 ear infections, a stomach bug, and RSV. I don't even know how to quantify the runny noses, because it has been constant. I know that I am lucky that she is otherwise healthy, so I will go knock on a million pieces of wood now.

I have learned from experience (at least 5 trips to the emergency room and 2 hospital stays unfortunately) that earaches/throw up/fever hits in the middle of the night 9 out of 10 times, and at least the first time, you are GROSSLY unprepared. I hope this blog post can change the second part for some new parents out there.
