Stuffed mushrooms are one of my favorite appetizers, they always hit the spot! So when Jimmy Dean contacted me about their new Fully Cooked Sausage Crumbles, I knew I wanted to use the crumbles in stuffed mushrooms. I adapted this recipe from one I found on the Jimmy Dean website. It comes together very quickly, in about 30 minutes. It’s simple enough to whip up when you need an appetizer in no time! Ingredients: 12 oz medium sized mushrooms, stems removed 1 package Jimmy Dean® Sausage Crumbles, Original 1 garlic clove, minced 2 eggs ¾ cup dry Italian bread crumbs, divided ½ cup (2 ounces) grated Parmesan cheese, divided ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley 1 tablespoon olive oil #spon: I’m required to disclose a relationship between our site and Jimmy Dean.

Here’s another delicious dessert I made for New Years Eve. (You can read about my New Years Eve party and get a recipe for Honey Citrus Champange Cupcakes here) The original BHG recipe included bourbon, but I already had Bourbon Truffles on the menu so I decided to go without it in this recipe. I was a little wary of making these little guys, petit fours seem pretty difficult to make. But I was surprised with how simple it was to make these! Ingredients: BROWNIES 1/2 cup butter 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped 1/4 cup milk 2 tablespoons coffee grounds (I measured them out from a k cup) 1 cup sugar 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon baking soda MILK CHOCOLATE FROSTING & SEMISWEET CHOCOLATE GLAZE 1 cup whipping cream 11.25 ounce milk chocolate pieces 16 ounce package semisweet chocolate pieces
As most of the U.S. has been dealing with seriously cold weather and snow, I thought it was time to share another French Toast recipe. Without fail, people always go out before a storm and stock up on bread, milk, and eggs so French Toast is the perfect meal on a snow day. This recipe is based off my Slow Cooker Apple French Toast Casserole, but incorporates Nutella and tops it off with caramelized bananas for good measure. I love using my slow cooker for French Toast because it makes a bunch of servings to either share with a group or pack up and enjoy all week! Ingredients: 1 loaf challah bread (about 1 pound), cut into cubes 6 large eggs 2 cups vanilla almond milk (or normal milk) 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 2 heaping tablespoons Nutella, plus more for topping Pinch salt 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 4 bananas, sliced 1 tablespoon brown sugar
