Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

How is it Monday already? I mean really. Why do weekend days go by a gazillion times faster than weekdays? Our weekend was wonderful though! On Friday, my sweet husband took me out on a date to see Beauty and the Beast 3D and eat dinner at Amazon Grill (my favorite!). I had such a lovely time. Beauty and the Beast is amazing in 3D. The castle's library was just soooo big, and the wilting rose petals were so lifelike, and the little footstool puppy is so much cuter in 3D! Haha. It was like I was a little girl all over again. I might have cried a bit at the part where the Beast turns back into a prince and Belle says "It is you!" Sigh. Such a great movie. We've been walking around the house singing Beauty and the Beast songs since Friday.

On Saturday we finally used our tickets for a tour of Minute Maid Park (our baseball stadium), which was such fun! And then we painted the laundry room! Busy busy busy. Anyway... let's try to not focus on the weekdays and think about next weekend instead, okay?

Anyone having a Super Bowl party this weekend? This is a great recipe to munch on during the game! I made these for our New Year's party and they disappeared very quickly from their tray! I couldn't even snap a photo of them before they were devoured!

Recipe adapted from here.

3/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
3/4 cup milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
4 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 oz mini turkey pepperoni
pizza sauce for dipping

1. Preheat the oven to 375 and grease a 24-cup mini muffin pan.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, garlic powder, and baking powder. Then, whisk in the milk and egg. Stir in the mozzarella and pepperoni. Let stand for 10 minutes.
3. Stir the batter lightly and divide evenly among the 24 mini-muffin cups. Bake until puffed and golden, 20-25 minutes.
4. Serve with pizza sauce for dipping.
