Dairy Free jalapeno poppers with chorizo

Dairy-Free Chorizo Jalapeno Poppers

Jalapeno poppers for everyyyone! The all-inclusive popper – ok not for the vegetarians. Really this is a dairy-free recipe I made because I’m deeply sad every time I see a cream cheese stuffed jalapeno on the menu that I have to pass up. SO – I made some myself and they satisfied a craving that has been building for YEARS. Before we get started – I want to note that Jalapeno shows up as a misspelling every time I type...

Instant pot collard greens with bacon and lemon

Instant Pot Collard Greens

OH Heyyyyy. Collard greens are my newest love in the world of green things. Kale will forever be a staple, and spinach is irreplaceable BUT – there is a sweet spot between wilted spinach and dry chewy kale stuck in your teeth¬† – and it’s collard greens!
