#Figlove: Cheese Stuffed Figs with Toasted Walnuts

October is #figlove month!!!  I am hosting this month.  In the past I participated in #peachlove, #tomatolove, #icecreamlove, #pastalove, #berrylove, #greenslove, #chocolatelove.

This month was #figlove.  I have never cooked with figs before and I can’t even remember if I have had figs before.  So I was a little concerned.  I did not want to make some large dish and then not like the figs.  Then I found this appetizer/side dish item.  With cheese and walnuts.  I love cheese and nuts, so I thought this would be a place to start with figs.

#SundaySupper: Baked Egg with Mushrooms and Bacon

#Sunday Supper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back supper around the family table in every home.  This week the theme is quick and easy meals.

I live by myself.  Therefore, getting dinner on the table fast is a little bit different for me than some of the other blogs that are participating in this #SundaySupper.  However, I still want to get dinner on the table fast some nights and baked eggs are one of my favorite.  You can put whatever you want in it and they are really easy to make.  And only 15 minutes in the oven.

Stuffed Shells with Marinara Sauce

I went to my parent’s house for a few days for the holiday.  My mom and I made this yummy lasagna inspired dish!  My dad loves it, so we will have it again.  It is also really easy to freeze if you want to make it ahead of time.  Just stop after step 5 and cover with aluminum foil and put in the freezer.  When your ready to cook it: put it in the refrigerator for a while to defrost.  And pesto! Dinner!

#SundaySupper: Juicy Lucy and Blueberry Ketchup

I love Juicy Lucys!!  They are hamburgers with cheese in the middle!!  Juicy Lucys are a hometown original!  Matt’s Bar in Minneapolis takes credit for the first one.  And be careful eating your Juicy Lucy, because that cheese can burn you!!

Cheese Crackers

I can’t decide how I feel about these.  They taste just like Cheese Its.  They have a bit more kick, but that’s adjustable.  I just can’t decide if the effort to make them is worth the pay off?  My coworker thought so, she ate half my batch and asked for the recipe.
