Jalapeno Cheese Bread, Weekly Recap & Thanksgiving Recipes

Hi Everyone,

This is going to be a busy post! So I’ll try to make it brief and not so wordy.  Today I have for a re-make of my Jalapeno Cheese Bread.  I served this bread the other night with my potato soup.  It’s better than the first recipe with a few modifications.

In comparison to my original recipe, this bread is more moist and not so dense.  It’s loaded with more jalapenos and a little less cheese.  For added moister I added plain greek yogurt and for a little added flavor I added some ground garlic.  This bread was perfect!!

Jalapeno Cheese Bread is one of my favorite breads of all time!  I guess it is because it has peppers in it.  This was a hit with my Husband too!!  It’s really easy to make and is so perfect with a big bowl of soup.  My Husband and I have been known to pick up a loaf from the grocery store and sit in the car and eat it!  I know that is so bad, but it’s so good!  I’m happy to make a healthy version at home!!

    I have to show you these cookies I made this week for my Husband.  These are a basic cookie base full of Cookies and Cream Hershey Chocolate and a few Rolo chocolates that we had leftover from Halloween.  My Husband went crazy with the candy this year and he leaves the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and the Cookies and Cream Chocolates.  I wasn’t sure what to do with them so I decided to bake them in a cookie.  I had a couple and boy are they good!  I made my Husband take them to work.  I wanted them out of the house.  He was happy to do that!!

    Just look at the Rolo’s oozing out!  You can see why I couldn’t have them around me.  Cookies are another one of my trigger foods.  I love to bake them, but I can’t stop eating them and that also includes the batter!!  Yes I know raw eggs are bad, but it’s so good and I’m still alive after all these years of batter eating!  Sorry they are not set-up fancy pictures, but I wasn’t posting the recipe, I just wanted to share them with you.  I try to stick to healthier recipes on my blog.  But if you ever want a not so healthy recipe, just ask!!  I eat healthy, most of the time, but my Husband and rest of the family don’t!  🙂

    Here’s this weeks weekly recap.

    Monday:  Breakfast Cookies / SRC – These cookies were a hit with readers and a hit with me!  They are completely guilt-free.  Since I am off this week, I think I’ll make them again!  I’d rather reach for these cookies then chips!

    Tuesday:   Mint Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies – I guess I did cookies two days in a row.  These are my not as healthy cookies, but they are still pretty low in calories!  These cookies are replica of Girl Scout Thin Mints!  I was shocked on how similar they taste!  I know I will be making these again!!

    Wednesday:  Baked Cinnamon and Pear Oatmeal – This is such a wonderful breakfast!  It’s a great change to traditional oatmeal.  It’s full of chopped pears and a tad of sweetness from the brown sugar!  I love it!  I plan on baking oatmeal again this week!  I wonder what kind I should make?

    Thursday:  Homemade Potato Soup / Giveaway – I love this soup!  It’s healthy and creamy with no added cream!  I love pureed vegetable soups and this one is a keeper.  My Husband and I loved it so much we ate this two days in a row with our jalapeno cheese bread!

    Friday – Sauteed Brussels Sprouts and Apples – I love these brussels sprouts!  The added sweetness from the apple juice and apples is perfect!  I have a ton of sprouts leftover, and I think I am going to make this again!  It makes for a wonderful lunch and heats up in the microwave very quickly!

    Saturday:   Apple, Cranberry, Walnut Stuffing – This is perfect for Thanksgiving and perfect for a small group of two or three.  I love it and will be serving this for our Thanksgiving Dinner.

    1. I just made the ‘original’ jalapeño cheese bread tonight! It’s a favourite of my partner and I and goes well with anything! If there’s any left (if) after a couple of days I slice it up, put it in a zip lock bag and freeze it. It’s so handy to pull out a slice or two and toast in my sandwich press! Yum! Will have to try this version two very soon!! Thanks for all of your recipes you post, I’ve made a few things (all the way here in Australia) and they have all been delish! Keep it up!!

    2. This bread looks fabulous…a quick bread like this is something I would whip up on a busy worknight with a simple soup. Thanks for sharing, Jen!

    3. this looks amazing. a good place to hide jalapenos and i LOVE cheese

    4. i literally NEVER tire of a new jalapeño cheese bread recipe. i love, love, love all kinds – i do not discriminate 🙂 i’ll be trying yours next!

    5. Chobani Love says
