  1. Excellent spicy flavor. I might try with canned green chilis for a milder flavor. Delicious snack! I'm thinking they would be fun for Halloween too -- Love the name! Thanks much!
  2. These were great! When selecting Jalapenos, try to pick the smallest ones possible - that way you can eat more than one! I followed the recipe exactly and they baked wonderfully... I did have to use an extra egg (but I think that was because my Jalapenos were so big!) Made for newest zaar tag - thanks Mimi!


Very busy nanny/au pair, working for a very rich and snooty family, in a very large home, in a very snooty village. Just in case my employer comes here, please don't ask where I am from, or I'll be sacked like the last nanny was. ;-) I take care of 4 gorgeous, and darling kids. 3 girls and a boy. The boy is the youngest (and my favorite). They are great children, very, very active. (Hyper) I love to cook. I guess that's a given, why else would I be here. Part of my job is also to prepare meals for the family. The more they like my food, the longer I get to stay. (just a little joke) On my day off, I usually go out to the cinema or some dance clubs with the other au pairs in this town. That's about it I think.
