A few months ago I saw this strawberry balsamic flatbread over on Joy The Baker, and pinned it to try sometime, as it looks absolutely delicious.

I have a weird thing with Jalapeno Poppers. I love them. I order them out at restaurants whenever I get the chance, and even buy the frozen ones occasionally to heat up at home (or eat frozen, as the case may be. Shhh.) I’d made some fresh a few years ago using Fiber One as […]
