Felt - Forever Breathes the Lonely Word Music Album Reviews

Each Sunday, Pitchfork takes an in-depth look at a significant album from the past, and any record not in our archives is eligible. Today, we revisit the misanthropic pop perfection of the indie British band’s sixth and best album.
In November 1986, a writer for NME visited the flat of indie-pop enigma Lawrence. The mononymous musician lived in a quiet suburb outside of Birmingham, England, alone except for a collection of records, a set of first edition Kerouac paperbacks, and enough cleaning products to stock a small hospital ward. “A platoon of Airwick Solids stoically occupy strategic vantage points; the toilet bowl harbors not the usual one, but a breeding pair of those Cartland-pink santisers; a wicker basket provides a mass grave for spent aerosol air fresheners.” Since he rarely left the antiseptic apartment, Lawrence explained that his days were typically spent wasting time with mundane activities, like assiduously washing his floppy brown hair.

Air Fryer BBQ Bacon-wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

Air Fryer BBQ Bacon-wrapped Jalapeno Poppers are a mouthful to say – and a mouthful of flavor. They’re stuffed with a garlic cream cheese filling, wrapped in bacon, and bathed in a brown sugar BBQ sauce. What’s not to love?

Ingredients
  • 8 jalapenos
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup fiesta blend cheese
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 16 slices Wright Brand bacon
  • 1 cup Head Country BBQ Sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat Air Fryer to 400 degrees F. 
  2. Slice jalapenos in half lengthwise and remove seeds and veins.
  3. In small bowl, combine cream cheese, fiesta blend cheese, and garlic powder. Stir until smooth.
  4. Spread cream cheese mixture into body of each jalapeno half, Starting with stem end, wrap bacon around stuffed jalapeno, overlapping slightly. Secure with 1-2 toothpicks. 
  5. In another small bowl, combine BBQ sauce and brown sugar. Dip bacon-wrapped jalapenos into BBQ mixture OR use a pastry brush to apply BBQ mixture.
  6. Place jalapenos in single layer in Air Fryer. Cook 16-20 minutes until bacon is crispy. 

Key to Success #1 – Slice Jalapenos and Remove Seeds
For these Jalapeno Poppers, try to get jalapenos that are about 3-inches in size. Finding jalapenos that are similar in size is important because the jalapenos will be all cook in about the same amount of time.

After you wash your jalapenos, you’ll want to cut off the stem end then slice them lengthwise. You can use a small paring knife to remove the veins and all the seeds.

If you want some of the heat from the jalapenos, you can leave a few of the seeds inside. The more seeds, the more heat. Choose your own adventure!

For my family, I removed all the seeds.
Key to Success #2 – Mix Up the Cream Cheese Filling
The cream cheese filling for these Air Fryer Jalapeno Poppers is made with cream cheese, fiesta blend cheese, and some garlic powder.

If you pop the cream cheese into the microwave for about 30 seconds, it’ll soften up enough so that it’ll be much easier to mix the other cheese into it.

The garlic powder is optional, but we really like it and think it adds a nice punch of flavor.

Key to Success #3 – Wrap It In Bacon
I recommend Wright Brand bacon in this recipe, which is a thick-cut bacon. Using an Air Fryer, the bacon will get crispy even with it being thick-cut.

If you wrap your Jalapeno Poppers well enough, you can turn them over halfway through cooking without losing your cream cheese filling. I used a pair of silicone-tipped tongs and it worked out great.

Be sure to use toothpicks to secure your bacon to the Jalapeno Poppers. I used two toothpicks through the sides to secure each end of the bacon.

Key to Success #4 – Cover It in Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce
You don’t have to add the brown sugar to the BBQ sauce, but it sure adds a nice touch of sweetness to these Air Fryer BBQ Bacon-wrapped Jalapeno Poppers.

I chose to dip my Bacon-wrapped Jalapenos into the BBQ sauce, but you can use a pastry brush to gently brush it on if you like to be neat.

The BBQ’d Jalapenos go directly into the basket of the Air Fryer at 400 degrees F for about 20 minutes. If you can manage to flip your Jalapeno Poppers halfway through cooking, this is preferred. But if not, the hot air will still circulate around them well enough to crisp up the bacon.

I hope you’ll give this recipe a try! Please like and share with your friends.

Asus ZenFone 6 Review

Has Asus cracked the bezel-less design with the ZenFone 6? We think so - read our review and find out why.
Should I Buy The Asus ZenFone 6?
The ZenFone 6 is a phenomenal smartphone, offering an innovative Flip Camera system that not only provides high-end front- and rear-facing cameras, but allows for a full-screen display free of hole-punch cameras or notches.

Highly impressive QLED picture quality along with the all-encompassing Smart Hub combine to make the Q70R a great choice if you can’t justify spending a whole lot more on the Q90R.

Huawei MateBook 14 Review

The MateBook 14 is one of Huawei's new laptops for 2019 and is the perfect all-rounder. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The Huawei MateBook 14?
The MateBook 14 might be a slightly chunkier and heavier version of the flagship X Pro, but the weight is a small price to pay considering that this laptop is a much cheaper option.
What you lose (or gain, really) in weight, is made up for by additional ports, better performance and longer battery life. You only really need to pass on this if Thunderbolt is an absolute must.

Xiaomi M365 Electric Scooter Review

We test Xiaomi's electric scooter, which will keep the big kids entertained for hours. It's now officially available in the UK, too, which makes it even more appealing.
Should I Buy The Xiaomi Electric Scooter?
The Xiaomi Electric Scooter is expensive and not allowed on UK roads out the box, but if you have somewhere to take it this toy is an awful lot of fun. It's fast, smooth and almost entirely silent, with a battery that just keeps on going and decent brakes that stop you quickly but safely. This scooter is best reserved for the big kids, but that's no bad thing.
