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

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m
