Sriracha Almond Stuffed Peppers #Recipe @BlueDiamond #Ad

This post is sponsored by Blue Diamond Almonds. All opinions are my own.

Blue Diamond Almonds has a new Bold Sriracha Flavor! 

I like my food on the spicy side.  I am always adding Sriracha to  rice, meats, soups, seriously, almost everything.  I can't lie, I was excited to try the new Sriracha Almonds. 

The Blue Diamond Almonds, Bold Sriracha were full of flavors, savory, and spicy.  I decided to use them a few ways while making Sriracha Almond Stuffed Peppers.  

Blue Diamond Almonds BOLD SRIRACHA
Hot Sausage 12 oz
3 Medium Green Peppers
Red Onion
Roasted Tomatoes
Jalapeno/Habanero Shredded  Monterey Jack Cheese
Long Rice
Dried Garlic 
Dried Chile Peppers

First I had fun using my nutribullet to shred the Sriracha Almonds into a course powder.  It doesn't have to be perfect, I wanted some of the bigger pieces for on top the Cheese, and I wanted the smaller pieces for when I fried the Sausage/Peppers/Onions together.  

Prepped the Green peppers, cut off the tops, deseeded, and boiled my Green Peppers in water for a few minutes, just enough to cook through a little,  Drained the water, and put the peppers in a baking dish.

(put on my Long Grain rice in my rice maker,  its 3 cups of Long grain, and 6 cups of water, added dried chile peppers, dried garlic, salt, and pepper. Make the rice however you want,)  

Fried the Sausage (Drained twice. I use HOT Breakfast Sausage, and dont like a lot of grease.) I then refried the Sausage with the cut up green pepper from the top, cubed red onions, and then some of the course Blue Diamond Sriracha Almonds.  Let me tell you, it smelled amazing together.

Preheat Oven to 450

The Rice should be done now,  I then add the rice to the Almond/Sausage/Pepper/Onion Mix in the pan.  Also add a cup of Fire Roasted Tomatoes.  

Now,  you stuff the Peppers with the Rice Mix.  I also like to add some cheese in the bottom of the Green Pepper before adding the Rice Mix.  When the Pepper is packed, I put it in the Oven to bake for 10 minutes.  Then I add the Cheese on top while baking, and turn the Oven off.  It melts super fast.  

After taking the Peppers out the oven, I sprinkled some of the Blue Diamond Sriracha Almonds on top, and placed a whole almond on the cheese as a treat too.   I think there are so many ways to incorporate Blue Diamond Almonds into a meal.

Get Out And Play! #SummertimePlay @Voice_of_Play #sp

Today is officially the first day of Summer!  Get out there and have some Summertime Play! This post is sponsored by the Voice of Play. 

There are many benefits to Free time play, and expression while running around having fun on the playgrounds.  From Exploration, Cognitive Skills, even to Social Interaction with other children. Or just alone time while using imagination.  It's all important.

IPEMA likes to think of playgrounds as "nature’s many colorful, open, hands-on classrooms that provide tremendous learning opportunities to kids of all ages."  I agree 100%.

Do you have a favorite Park? Whats the reason this makes it your favorite place to take the kids?

Our favorite park has a huge Ship, which makes sense since we are close to Jamestown.  It also has a fenced in younger kids section that is perfect for Sy.

His sensory needs are met by the mini rock climbers, the embedded faux wall with old time tools, and camp ground. A lot of built in's under to pirate ship to spin, and on top.  Even a Crows Nest.  For the older kids, there is a Mini Zipline, and Higher Climbing wall with a Slide at the top.  It's an amazing park, and experience.  Great for Summer Time Play!

I challenge you to go out to a park, and play! :)

BK Creamery Blueberries & Cream Waffles #Recipe #GlutenFree #sp

Recently I went to Giants for a BK Creamery In-Store Event.  I'm one of those people that also love to save money using coupons.  So I was excited to be able to use a ,60 cents off coupon towards Bk Creamery

There are a couple more events this weekend at a few Giants, and Super Shop & Stop, Check here and see if any are in your area for BK Creamery In-Store Event Testing.  I tried Strawberries, and Cream at mine.  I enjoyed just the fruit, and cream so I decided I wanted to do a simple recipe with just a fruit, and cream.  

Breakfast is my favorite part of the day.  I decided to make Blueberries over top of a Gluten Free Waffle.  Easy, delicious, and not costly.  Heres how I like to make BlueBerries & Cream Waffles.

Bring the blueberries to a simmer, and cook until berries break down, about 4 minutes. Let cool a little.

Whisk in a bowl some Blueberry Syrup with BK Creamerys Extra Thick Double Cream.

Toast your Gluten Free Waffle (Or make from Scratch, I just use my favorite brands premade Gluten Free Blueberry Waffles.)

My blueberries were sweet, but if yours are too bitter, try a touch of lemon to get rid of the bitterness.

I am a fan of this cream, and how well it mixes with just a whisk.  It wasn't tangy, and I was dipping blueberries in the cream to eat as a treat.

You can find even more ideas and recipes by visiting the Brooklyn Creamery website,, or print a BK Creamy Coupon by Clicking [Here.] Don't forget to check them out on twitter, facebook, pinterest, and instagram.
