My favorite time of the summer… Big Brother time. Seriously I am such a fan girl of this show it’s silly. Yesterday all I could think about is at 7 o’clock, Big Brother 15 will start! If you don’t know what BB is, let me give you a quick rundown…it’s a reality game show were “house guest” are locked in one huge house with no contact outside this house for 3 months for $500,000! They compete in competitions for different prizes, such as Head of Household, Food competitions, Luxury competitions, POV, and now MVP! It’s kind of a lot to explain in one paragraph so good look it up, or better off, WATCH IT!!! Unless you are like me and easily addicted…cautiously watch…then say, ” goodbye to your summer and hello to Big Brother!!” Any who it’s really fun to watch…This is also the first season I bought the Live Feeds. Live feeds are an 24/7 access to the house on CBS.com…(now you think I’m crazy) I am normally not a big reality game show fan, but this show just consumes me….I will admit it, but I don’t care! It’s all good clean fun…sort of. Last night was the premier, and here is what I think:

Big brother has always been about the house guest being “real people” but this season I really feel like the girls are the same stereotypical “conceited pretty girls” and all the guys are the stereotypical “athletic type” minus one or two house guest. Most also seem to be single…which means only one thing…there is going to be a ton of “showmances”. YAY or NAY? we shall see…

First day in the house and these house guest are ready for alliances!! Like seriously if I was in the house and in the first 10 minutes someone is trying to make an alliance with me I am staying away from you!…seriously barf! Give it a minute…

If you have watched previous season(12) then you know who Rachel Reilly is…you either HATE  her or LOVE her and in the end I LOVED her, well her sister is in the season…Elissa…and I am so rooting for her!! So far the house guest don’t seem to realize that she is her sister(even though they look like twins!). Which when they do find out, I feel like there will be a major target on her back… 😦 BOO!

TWO new twist! *Spoilers* Instead of the two normal nominees for evictions there will now be 3, the 3rd nominee will now be chosen by the MVP…which will be chose by “america” on cbs.com each week. They get the advantage of putting someone up in silence and secret…great advantage. Which puts a major target on the HOH if both of their nominees stay! My predictions…this is going to be a “catty” season…so “floaters get your life vest!”

NOW it’s your turn, Tell me what you think about this season…

Jalapeno Garlic “Pull Apart” Cheesy Bread

Authors Note: So I started my Garden over a month ago, (I’m sure i’ll do a post about that soon too) and well I have an abundance of jalapenos and sometimes you can have enough salsa, so I have been adding Jalapenos to almost anything to see what else i can use it in, and really Jalapenos in anything is a good thing, but this recipe I had to share!

Pull apart bread is a yummy snack to enjoy with family and friends! All sorts of things can be added to this recipe, and if you can’t handle the spice, don’t add the jalapenos! We had a pizza night yesterday and i had left over pizza dough so weather you make your own dough or store bought dough this recipe is pretty easy to throw together. I used a bread pan to bake it in, which gave it a thick crispy side that was to DIE for.  If you don’t have a bread pan, a cookie sheet will do too. Now this is what you’ll need:

Jalapeno Garlic “Pull Apart” Cheesy Bread

  • 1 lb pizza dough, homemade or store bought, (I recommend Rhodes Bread Dough in the freezer section.)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup shredded Colby jack
  • 1-2 Jalapenos sliced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup melted butter (depending on how bad you wanna be) you don’t NEED it, but it does taste better with it.
  1. Preheat oven @ 350 degrees.  Mix melted butter and garlic together, use some of that butter mixture to lather up the sides and bottom of the pan.
  2. Separate the dough into two equal parts, we are going to layer dough and cheese. First the dough goes down in little pieces, this is what makes the bread easy to “pull apart” after its done baking. So pull apart the dough in little section about a 1-2 inches each. Start placing them at the bottom of the pan, don’t worry if the whole pan isn’t covered it will spread together as it bakes.
  3. Then use half of each of the cheeses and sprinkle over the dough, now throw on those jalapenos on top.
  4. Now place the rest of the dough balls in and then the rest of the cheese. Last but not least…the garlic butter! Pour it all over the dough. Bake for 20-25 minutes! Enjoy the smell of that bread in your oven! Your welcome!
