One Jewel Toned Momma - Meet Sarah!

Thursday has arrived and the cold weather too! Yesterday I don't think the temperatures rose above 35 degrees! I did head out at noon to take my lunch time power walk - bundled up with gloves and a hat to boot! You will greatly appreciate today's guest post as it may add some heat to these cold cold days! Sarah and I met on Instagram {I'm getting pretty famous at making IG friends these days}! We bonded over the fact that we both lived in Virginia and then later learned we were both bloggers! We've been following one another ever since! I hope y'all enjoy Sarah and her mouth watering retake on my recent post of Cheesy Jalapeno Popper Baked Stuffed Chicken! 

Sarah also just became a Stella & Dot Consultant! If you are interested in booking an on-line party be sure to contact her for more info! If you haven't seen their new Spring preview, you are missing out! Take a look below at a few new pieces!

Now presenting Sarah and all her Hot Mess Mommie glory!

Hey Y’alL!
I’m Sarah and I blog over at Hott Mess Mommie! I’m so excited Lauran is having me today!

I’m a 20 something’s stay at home mama..soon to be heading back to work (SCARY) my almost 1 year old Oliver.

I spend most of my days, and nights, covered in snot and cheerios and I wouldn’t trade a second of it!

Beyond taking care of O, I loveeeeeeee crafting, cooking, interior design and hanging out with my girlfriends (when I get the chance).

I thought I’d share one of my favorite recipes with y’all today to enjoy! Pre-apologizing for the butter content (HA) I know those New Years Resolutions are in full force ;) I hope you like it and stop over anytime and say HI! I love meeting new people in blog land and can’t wait to see all your pretty faces :)
This recipe has been floating around pinterest for awhile, but my mama first made it when I was in elementary school. So for that..we call it Mama Stone’s Jalapeno Chicken.

What you’ll need:
Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
(1 for each person eating, or 2 if it’s for a man)
Tub of Phillidelphia Cream Cheese and Chives
Stick of Butter, melted.
Jar of sliced jalapenos
Package of Thick Sliced Bacon

1. Preheat your oven to 375
2. Beat chicken with a mallet to tenderize, making it still look like a chicken breast (don’t go overboard) but it needs to be pretty flexible.
3. Dip chicken breast in melted butter.
4.Spread a generous amount of cream cheese inside each breast.
5. Place jalapenos on top of cream cheese
6. Roll up breast (this part gets kind of messy).
7. Take a piece of bacon and wrap around the chicken. I like to lay the bacon down and place the chicken in the center, then fold in each end of bacon while pulling tight!
8. Secure with tooth pick.

Bake for 45 minutes at 375 and ENJOY!

Thanks for having me Lauran, I hope to come back soon!

Sarah must have secretly known that this recipe has quickly become one of my favorites! I am excited to try this way of preparing and cooking it! I mean anything WRAPPED in bacon  has to be like heaven in your mouth! Would you not agree?! I hope you all head over and say hello to Sarah and get to know her a bit more. More so, I hope you all check out her Stella and Dot page! They have some gorgeous pieces to spruce up any wardrobe and I have no doubt Sarah would be more than willing to be your personal S&D stylist! Happy Thursday darlings! Stay warm!
