Sweet Heat Spatchcock Chicken

We have another winner! I was afraid that the chicken was going to dry out because we had to put dinner on hold for a little over an hour, but I dropped the heat to 250°F, then bumped the temp to 425°F to crisp up the skin. This is how I normally make it withContinue reading “Sweet Heat Spatchcock Chicken”

Sweet and Sticky Asian Style Ribs

I found a heck of a deal on ribs! These turned out brilliantly! They are so sticky, sweet and delicious, plus that smoke flavor. Copycat Panda Express Chow Mein and Sesame Braids make amazing sides for this family favorite.

Sweet Heat Cornbread Muffins

I love making this cornbread recipe. The combination of sweet and heat can’t be beat! It’s slightly cake-like on the inside with a wonderfully crunchy crust. If you aren’t a fan of hot foods, substituting the jalapeños for bell peppers is a great option. They go great with the honey! I love serving them warmContinue reading “Sweet Heat Cornbread Muffins”

Green Bean & Corn Casserole

I had several people over various groups ask me for my recipe for Green Bean and Corn Casserole. You can substitute the homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup for the canned variety if are short on time. I kinda always thought that green bean casserole was missing a sweet element, so I tossed in a canContinue reading “Green Bean & Corn Casserole”

Sweet Chile Cornbread

This is one of my all time favorite cornbread recipes! It’s an amazing combination of heat and sweet! Using canned Green Chiles doesn’t make it too spicy, so if you’d like to ramp up the heat try some diced jalapeños! I’ve found that using yellow corn meal creates a more cake like cornbread (my preference),Continue reading “Sweet Chile Cornbread”

Air Fryer Sweet & Tangy Plantains

I love plantains! I used to pan fry them, but my air fryer does the trick brilliantly with almost no oil! ❤️ I’d only ever had them with sea salt, garlic and Parmesan so I decided to switch it up a bit and make an interpretation of Maduros. They were pretty dang good! Air FryerContinue reading “Air Fryer Sweet & Tangy Plantains”
