Friday Favorites–Spicy

I’m kind of a wimp when it comes to spicy food.  I like a bit of spice, but not too much, and only when I’m in the mood for it.  Spicy attitude though?  I’m FULL of that. 

I do love jalapeno poppers, so this Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese from Smells Like Home seems like a great way to work them into an actual meal.


This Jalapeno Popper Dip from Closet Cooking also looks delicious.  Dip the sandwich?  Too much?

Jalapeno Popper Dip 500

If you’re looking for a clever way to store all those spices in your own kitchen, check out this Magnetic Under-Shelf Spice Rack from Instructables user garrett.tillman.


I’m a little obsessed with pumpkin seeds right now, so these Sweet and Spicy Pumpkin Seeds from Momma Go Round are a must-try.

For a little spice on the outside, try this Homemade Sweet and Spicy Sugar Scrub from Under the Table and Dreaming.


I love the idea of a chili bar for our next party, like this one from Celebrations at Home.  Everyone can spice it to their own tolerance level.


How about Cinco de Chili Chocolate Cupcakes with Chili Cream Cheese Frosting from AllRecipes user Candice for dessert?


Maybe the little ones that just aren’t ready for all that hot stuff would enjoy these Mini Chili Pepper Piñatas from Zim on a Whim instead.


Tell me what’s not spicy about these sparky, red beauties from Crafts After College.


The perfect end to a spicy round-up has got to be Bob’s Habanero Hot Sauce from Allrecipes user R.B. Miller.  I’m intrigued by the use of peaches.


Here’s hoping your weekend is spicy in all the good ways!
