Cranberry Jalapeno Cream Cheese Dip

Rating: 4 stars 8
This is a fun dip that is both sweet and spicy. I got the recipe by varying other cranberry salsa and dip recipes I have found. I got the idea of the fusion of oil from a friend. There are many ideas for use and a great item to take along when you want to surprise your friends with something they probably have not tried. Serve with Triscuits®, pita chips, or crackers.

Deep Fried Jalapeno Slices

Rating: 4.5 stars 172
These are addictively delicious. Spicy and sinful. Best if served with melted nacho cheese sauce.

Crab-Stuffed Deviled Eggs

Rating: 4.5 stars 35
These eggs are actually also stuffed with crab, not just topped with crab. They are extremely easy to make. This recipe includes my famous 17-minute egg-cooking method.

Candied Kielbasa

Rating: 4.5 stars 541
Kielbasa, also called kielbasy or Polish sausage, is a spicy sausage usually made with pork (though beef is sometimes added). It comes in chunky links, and is sold precooked. I haven't met anyone yet who didn't like this dish. I even like it and I really don't care for kielbasa that much! Another bonus is that it is easy to make, and is yet another recipe for your slow cooker.

Air Fryer Avocado Fries

These air fryer avocado fries are wonderfully crunchy on the outside and creamy on the inside. Serve with garlicky aioli for a delicious treat!

Air-Fried Olives

Rating: 5 stars 1
These fried olives are salty, spicy, crunchy, and very addictive. Serve with ranch or blue cheese dressing for dipping if desired.
