Jalepeno Popper Rolls

I made these lovely things and made them again and will make them many more times. They are so amazingly, bready, spicy, creamy, hot, and yummy. Super easy to make too, just some bread and the filling. Just like cinnamon rolls, but savory.

I made a dough recipe:

2 cups warm water

2 packets yeast

2 tbs oil

1 tsp salt

4 cups flour (approximately)

Mix together, let rise until doubled, roll out into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick, spread with filling:

8 oz room temp. cream cheese

4-6 diced jalapenos

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tsp salt

Roll up like cinnamon rolls, pinching the ends closed, slice, put into a greased 9×13 pan and bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes.



These are pre-bake and they were gone so fast I wasn’t able to get a picture 🙂 that’s how good they are.



Last Friday my little brother graduated high school and last night we went to an 8th grade graduation for Matt’s cousin Marcus! Basically this is going to be pictures of them, so their families can print and steal whatever they want of what I took!

Starting with Henry!!

And then Marcus!

Starting Again

Wow, I just looked back at my last post and realized it’s been almost a MONTH???? Where did that time go? Oh, that’s right, I’m busy being a full time wife and student.
I’ve been traveling to Tri-cities for clinicals lately and that means that I’ve been gone from home 12 days of the last month. Finishing up a bunch of tests next week and then my last day of class on the 6th, with graduation on the 14th!! WOOOOHOOOOOOO!!!!! I am one excited woman!? Do I even get to call myself a woman yet? I suppose I am…. weird.

We also got chickens!!! It’s just one more thing that I’m super freakin excited about!!! Just this morning (before class) we moved them into their big girls home :} The inside of the chicken coop is done good enough for them to start taking up residence. It makes me so happy to have them out there! My hubby helped me finish the floor and hung the door last night. What a stud.

I sent out my graduation announcements/invites :] I think they turned out dang good! I’m so proud that I made it through and can’t wait to graduate with the great group of people!!

We’ve had a couple bonfires, burning junk we tore out of the chicken coop, blackberry bushes, and stuff that came from Matt’s grandparents house. Cleaning up everything for the graduation party we’re having here… look at how different it looks without those blackberry bushes!! We did that and then realized “Oh crap” we just took out the natural fence that was there and now the horse is on the yard… hmmm, poor planning right there. haha.

I mainly haven’t been cooking much. But will post later my quiche recipes and rhubarb pie recipe that I just made tonight :] They sure smell amazing.

This weekend is going to be CRAZY!!! A quick trip to Idaho to see my little brother graduate Friday and then back to Walla Walla to see Matt’s little brother get married!! It will be a weekend of so much joy and I’m taking along my own packs of Kleenex. I turned into the biggest bawl baby ever when I grew up. They will be amazingly happy tears!

Also we’ve been enjoying all the flowers we planted last fall!! I was so happy to see these come up! Tate decided to eat all the red tulips… they must have smelled too good to resist :] the purple and pink ones have survived thank goodness!! :]

Anyway, that about sums up the last month of our lives…. hopefully I will be able to slow down and start keeping this updated a tad more often. Just know that we are enjoying our married life and trying to keep it all together as I finish school and he works 14 hour days because it’s pipe changing time in the farming world!
