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....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
