What is your super power?

I’ve been answering this question since Lincoln was 4ish. Once he became interested in Superheros, we’ve talked about our ‘powers’.

Lincoln and Ryder both agree that my super power is cooking. (It’s also juggling 10 things at one time.) Most definitely, it is NOT patience. No way. No how!!

Ryder claims he has two powers: 1. cuteness and 2. super strength (cuteness – that cracks me up!!)
Ryder believes Lincoln’s super powers are “leaving stuff at school and being lazy” (bahahahaha!!!)

Lincoln rebuffs Ryder’s suggestions and claims he: 1. has psychic ability (hmmm?) and 2. super speed (like Dash on the Incredibles)
He believes Ryder’s power is the ability to annoy!


Let’s talk about my super power: cooking

We were around the house most of the weekend doing projects and watching football. Instead of a heavy meal, I made tailgate type food. It gave me an opportunity to try some appetizers I had wanted to try. This Jalapeno’ Popper dip was one of them.

It was very simple to make; simply stir the dip ingredients together then top with bacon and panko and bake.

Jalapeno Popper Dip

  1. You can use panko bread crumbs or crushed butter crackers for the top. If you use crackers you may omit the oil.
  2. You can use either fresh or pickled jalapeno peppers. Or my Candied Jalapeno Peppers are amazing in this dip recipe.
  3. If you like this recipe you may also like my Jalapeno and Cheese Grilled Chicken and my Inside Out Jalapeno Popper 
  4. You may use Colby cheese instead of white cheddar.
  5. Be sure to check out the notes in the recipe below for a second dip recipe. I like both recipes.
