Jalapeno Chicken Poppers

I have done nothing but brag about our new baby, and specifically, what an angel he is and how he does nothing but sleep and rarely cries. Boy has that changed lately! He is 2 months old today and is starting to show his feisty personality. While it’s exhausting, it’s still cute. It’s all part of the process. So coming up with recipe ideas in the midst of his fussiness is not all that easy. However, I am pretty darn happy with these little Jalapeno Chicken Popper appetizers that I made for some company tonight.

It was one of those last-minute get togethers this afternoon and I feel like I’ve been in a creative rut lately, so creating  these were lots of fun. Something about touching my food, pounding the chicken, folding, wrapping it, then filling the house up with the savory smell of it, nothing changes my mood for the better faster.

Shepherd’s Pie Pockets

I’ve always been a decent multi-tasker, but with the recent birth of our third son (7 weeks old), I am quickly becoming a multi-tasking machine. We both are in fact, we have no other choice if we want to keep these blogs going! Cooking, baking, styling, shooting, writing, social media, you name it, all done most of the time with one hand. Impressive huh?!

And along with that, the more I am all about quick & easy, fun & tasty meals for the family. These Shepherd’s Pie Pockets fit that to a tee. These turned out as good as I expected. Comfort food in a crescent roll. Love that they are hand held and not messy at all, which makes a dad like me happy. Less to wipe off the table and sweep off the floor!

Lucky for me, it was a huge hit—love it when that happens! It was especially so with my bird-like eating boy Cole, who had more than two slices. Generally, leftovers are a scarce thing, but at the end of this dinner there was one piece left over and I nabbed it for my next day’s breakfast and cracked an egg on top of it.
