riddle me this

Why is Costco always so busy? Why are their carts so large and so hard to push? (Struggle city, Melissa, you shoulda seen me) And why are apples the only fruit in season in Alaska? ...Well? 

I always dread my Costco visits, though I always love the results... A full refrigerator, full cabinets, and a full and happy husband. I made the trip today to stock up before going back to work. Heaven forbid if Stephen had to fend for himself in the next week, he'll have something to eat ;) 

Tonight on the menu was a new recipe, as my New Year's resolution would suggest, "Pepperoni Pizza Puffs". I've tried something similar before and husband loved them! These, thankfully, were much simpler and just as yummy.

You will need...
-3/4 cup flour
-3/4 cup milk
-1 tsp. baking powder
-1 cup shredded cheese (I used Mozzarella and Cheddar) (I also used 2 cups. As the Wall family knows, I'm married to "Cheese Man")
-1 large egg
-1/2 cup pepperoni, chopped/diced
-Salt/pepper to taste
-Italian seasoning

You will need to...
-Preheat over to 400 degrees
-Mix all ingredients but Italian seasoning in large bowl (I added corn and onions, about 1/3 cup of both combined. They would be good with peppers, olives, spinach... Just don't add too much, the "batter" should be slightly thinner than pancake batter)
-Grease muffin pan and scoop ingredients in
-Sprinkle some Italian seasoning on top (I forgot this part)
-In a mini muffin pan, bake 10-12 minutes, in a large muffin pan bake 15-20 minutes
-Serve warm with a side of marinara or pesto sauce for dipping

And Enjoy! :)
