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.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
