Several years ago, Chili’s Restaurant served Shanghai Wings , they have since taken them off the menu, so I’m really glad we have the recipe so we can enjoy these at home. They are a favorite meal for our whole family. This is a great recipe to have on hand because it is so easy to change the sauce that is served with it. This is our go to recipe when we want to have plain chicken nuggets. The paprika and cayenne pepper in the coating has just enough kick to let you know it’s there without over powering the chicken. Once you get the whole breading process figured out this meal goes together fairly quickly so this can easily be a weeknight meal for the kids.
Good grief. Help me. Help me now.
This morning I was looking at my home page and I realized that there is a lot of orange sweet potato and pumpkin going on. Considering the time of year I think it is very fitting. Maybe I should go red and green when Christmas comes around? Got any green and red recipes that I can try out for Christmas? In keeping with the autumn orange theme I got the idea to try a sweet potato gnocchi covered in gouda cheese sauce.
I had peppers. I had chicken. I had a million errands to run and wasn’t going to be home most of the day. So I enlisted the help of my crockpot and this recipe came together almost by itself.
With spring officially arriving last weekend, this house could pretty much assume that soup would be a rarity for a few months. I’m just not the kind to put a hot pot on the stove during the spring and summer, unless we have some unseasonably cool weather. My husband, on the other hand, would welcome a cup of hot chili or soup almost any day of the year. But just as soon as spring finally decided to peek out, it disappeared. Gone. Nowhere to be found.
So, here it is just a little more than two weeks before Christmas. The food blog world is slammed with Christmas cookies, Christmas candies, Christmas cakes, Christmas dinner recipes, Christmas gifts from the kitchen, and what am I posting? Uh…buttermilk baked chicken? Well, yeah. Besides all that Christmas goodness, you still have to get dinner on the table, right? Even with everything else going on right now you still have to feed your family!
What better than to start a new year with a super duper healthy recipe. Here on Family Fresh Cooking my recipes are created with real, whole food ingredients. If you are on the quest to detox and get yourself back on track after the holidays then you have come to the right place. This spaghetti squash is a grain free , gluten free , dairy free alternative to a dish that is often made with floury pasta…which makes it quite a bit more calorie dense.
October 2, 2010 My mom is obsessed with keeping a stocked freezer, but I guess I don’t really take after her, because my freezer tends to be relatively empty, aside from random containers of stock/ramen broth, frozen dumplings and pierogi. I admit, I store buy frozen chinese dumplings and pierogi for those times that I just don’t feel like cooking.
Tostadas are one of my all time favorite dinners because they just look so darn festive! Plus, I’m kind of obsessed with frying my own tostada shells and then making a few homemade chips for snacking too I’m still in full on avocado mode here in LA, and have been cooking up a storm using fresh California Avocados! I know that avocados can be found year round, but California Avocado season is over in the fall so I’ve decided that it’s my duty to eat as many avocados as humanly possible in the time being. For this tostada I used a base of my spicy refried beans because ever since I made them, I’ve been making them in bulk and using them in just about everything! On top of the beans I piled some charred corn, mashed avocado with lime juice and chives, chopped red bell peppers and some spicy garlic sauteed shrimp.
Uh-oh…this calzone shouldn’t be a calzone. Nope. It totally should be a picture of a pizza…topped with layers of ricotta, melted mozzarella, cubes of roasted butternut squash and broccoli rabe.
One of my favorite guilty pleasures is buffalo wings, especially dipped in blue cheese dressing. There's something about the buffalo chicken and blue cheese combo that really appeals to me and I had a craving for it lately. When I came across a recipe for ham and cheese stuffed pretzel bites, I figured I could substitute it with chicken and blue cheese. That's when I decided to make these Buffalo Chicken Bites ... yum! These are such an awesome snack, which could be a meal in itself if you have enough of them. It's not hard since they are addictively delicious!
OK, Folks. No joke, these are the best ribs ever!! I always look at reader reviews when I choose a recipe.
Remember last week when we were talking about company recipes ? This is one of those recipes. I’ll never forget the first time I had this *perfect* pulled pork. I was a guest in someone’s home and this was their company recipe.
