Peanut Butter Popcorn Balls

Peanut Butter Popcorn Balls

Is it just me or do you think of popcorn balls and Halloween hand-in-hand? It’s kind of like stuffing and Thanksgiving. Why do we not eat popcorn balls and stuffing year-round? I mean, they’re both really super delicious! I think I’m going to start the year-round stuffing and popcorn ball trend, who’s coming with me? ;-)

Any who, while thinking of new fall recipes, including ideas for fall holidays, like Halloween, I came up with my own little twist on the delicious popcorn ball!

It’s not very often that my Mom requests a new recipe from me.  You see, she’s kind of a picky eater (and I’m being really generous with the words kind of, haha!)

While I received many great attributes from my Mom, my passion for cooking and healthy appetite to eat anything and everything delicious, was not one of them.

The one thing that she does love to eat is good Tex Mex.  Living almost her entire life in Oklahoma and Texas, this totally makes sense.  And while I’ve explored many new cuisines since moving to California, I still love me some Tex Mex!

This dish. This dish!!! Seriously, this dish y’all! 

Ok, I think you get my point, I’m obsessed with this dish! So simple, so much flavor!

But don’t take my word for it, one of my best friends came over for dinner last week and said, “this is the best thing I’ve ever eaten that you’ve made!”  Coming from someone who has eaten dozens of my recipes over the years, I took this as a huge compliment, and knew that I had a winner on my hands!

Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese

Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese

Man oh man, the last week of my life has been completely crazy! I got called up to LA by my manager at CMEG to meet with a major network about hosting a new show! I know, right? So freaking awesome!

I took a whirlwind 24 hour trip to LA, met with the network and took the opportunity while I was in town to see some friends. I headed back home to San Diego on Friday morning and back to work.

I did a little work over the weekend and watched some football then woke up this morning and headed to my former college, SDSU, to guest lecture in JMS210: Social Media in Journalism. A class that just started it’s third year on campus.  It’s amazing that this is now a college course!

Gluten Free Taco Party Mix

Gluten Free Taco Party Mix

One very fond memory I have of growing up in Oklahoma during the fall was the party mix my Dad used to make. He would make it on the weekends to eat while watching football games.

It slow baked in the oven and the house smelled amazing, he would lay it out to cool and I would sneak my teeny little hands up on the counter to grab a bite ;-)
