The other day I picked up a Jalapeno rack and was extremely excited to try it out.  In my excited state, I totally forgot that that February is not the best time to find jalapenos.  However, after a long search I found some fresh jalapenos. There are a ton of companies that make jalapeno racks. … Read moreGrilled stuffed Jalapenos

Boneless Buffalo Wings

Boneless Buffalo Wings

The other day I was cleaning the garage and found a deep fryer that Dana and I received as a wedding present.  It was perfect timing, as the Big game is approaching and I received a question on how to make homemade boneless buffalo wings.  I have made wings in the past, but never boneless ones.  So I picked up a dozen chicken breasts from Costco and started experimenting.  After my third iteration I found the perfect combination.

Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pull Bread

Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pull Bread

Ever since I was a kid, the holidays meant it was time for hors d’ouerves / appetizers.  Since everyone is coming and going, my Mom would always have a table full of them.  For this reason, I am always on the lookout for new and interesting ideas.  I stumbled upon a single picture that excited my taste buds.  It was a picture of a round of sourdough bread that was sliced to resemble a porcupine and then covered with bacon and cheese.  To my surprise, the bread was also drenched in ranch flavored butter.  So I made it for Dana and it was a hit.  I can see why it is nicknamed “Crack Bread”.

Grilled Hot Wings

Grilled Hot Wings

It is officially football season!  There is no better football snack than Hot Wings.  I have been on a little hot wing kick lately.  I have been eating them at least once a week. Although your average hot wings are delicious, they are not the healthiest thing around.  So, I decided to put away the deep fryer and heat up the grill. Grilled wings are just as tasty and if you grill them over high heat, the skin will get nice and crispy.  By grilling the wings you get all of the flavor and texture, without all of the fat.

I love guacamole!  It features the amazing avocado better than any other dish.  The major downfall is that avocados can be really expensive.  However, the other day the local super market had them on sale for 3 for $1.  Yep, so for little to no money I can have my favorite chip dip. Guacamole – Adapted … Read moreGuacamole

Egg Salad Sliders

Egg salad sliders

The other day, Dana and I were walking through the store and she wanted Egg Salad Sandwiches.  However, she wanted them on small cocktail bread.  She said it was something that her Grandma would always make.  Who was I to say no.  So, we made little egg salad sliders.

I made a few open faced sliders and one closed face slider.
