10 Foods That Taste Better with Jelly

 Jelly is often thought of as something reserved for breakfast, or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

This fruity spread can actually go beyond that, to dinner, appetizers, and so much more.

1. Grape Jelly Meatballs

Make your meatballs as you normally would, but on the side prepare a mixture of 1 1/2 cups chili sauce, 1 cup grape jelly, and 3 teaspoons Dijon mustard. Marinate your meatballs in a crockpot on low for 4 hours for a sweet and savory dish.

2. Pepper Jelly Glazed Chicken

The sweet heat of pepper jelly is a perfect complement to many a meat dish, but especially chicken.

Baste chicken breasts with a mixture of ⅓ cup red pepper jelly, ⅓ cup Dijon mustard, and ⅓ cup honey before baking to perfection.

3. Mini Smoked Sausages in Jelly Sauce

Along the same lines as the meatballs, this combination is unique but has a little kick.

Put one pound of cocktail sausages, a 12-ounce bottle of chili sauce, and an 18-ounce jar of grape jelly into a slow cooker on low for 4 hours.

4. PB&J Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon rolls are a classic around the breakfast table. Next time you make a batch spread peanut butter and jelly on the flattened dough before rolling it up and baking it.

5. Grape Jelly and Prosciutto Bruschetta

Give guests a quick pre-meal bite with slices of baguettes topped with a mascarpone spread, a dollop of grape jelly, and roll of prosciutto.

6. Grilled Jelly on Brie with Ham

This is a big twist on a grilled cheese. Instead of butter spread jelly on sourdough, top with ham and brie, and heat up until the brie is melted.

This works well with sweet jelly, but don’t be afraid to try pepper jelly if you want to spice things up.

7. Jelly Jalapeno Poppers

The next time you’re stuffing jalapenos to make poppers reach for some jelly. We recommend sweet to offset the spice.

Fill each pepper with a spoonful of cream cheese and jelly, then wrap in bacon and grill for 25 to 30 minutes.

8. Peanut Butter and Jelly Chicken Wings

This classic bar food is turned up a notch with the sweet addition of peanut butter and jelly. Whisk together jelly, peanut butter, vinegar, and cherry juice to make a marinade for wings before grilling them. If you’d like some extra spice, add sriracha to the mix.

9. Oatmeal

Oatmeal is versatile; you can mix just about anything in and it’ll taste great.

To a saucepan add 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, and 1/2 banana, mashed. Mix constantly for 3 to 5 minutes until the mixture thickens.

Remove the oats from the heat and add a jelly of your choice on top for a healthy breakfast.

10. Peanut Butter Pancakes with Grape Jelly Syrup

If you add ½ cup of creamy peanut butter to your next batch of pancake batter, you’re well on your way to having PB&J for breakfast.

Top the pancakes with grape jelly instead of syrup for a sweet twist.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
