Jalapeño Honey Garlic Chicken Recipe « i am a food blog

I haven’t resorted to buying peeled garlic (yet!) And I recently just discovered a new garlic peeling trick at saveur.com. All you do is crush the cloves (they suggest using the heel of your hand, I use the flat of my knife) then dump them into a bowl. Put another same sized bowl on top, hold them together and shake. The shaking rubs all the cloves together and somehow their skins fall off. I guess garlic is just one of those things – it takes a little effort for a lot of reward. This recipe is fast, especially if you’re willing to forgo the marinating time.

Short Ribs Recipe: Beer Braised & Delicious. Short Ribs Recipe: Beer Braised & Delicious Short ribs, unlike their pork counterpart, are larger, meatier, and generally more tender, and that's exactly what we had in mind when coming up with today's recipe. We wanted to capture that tenderness in the meat and really show off the potential for a deep, robust flavor. To really properly cook the short ribs to tenderness, we decided to braise them in a great dark beer that really brought out the heartiness inherent in the ribs. To help the flavor, we added in some vegetables and of course a few great spices. The trick to braising is to make sure you have just the right amount of liquid.

Cheese Straws

What should be as common as its orange finger-producing bastard cousin, the Cheez-It, has been relegated to bridal showers and church socials for at least 60 years as ladies insist on chilling and twisting the dough, running it through a cookie press or piping it through a star tip to create those fussy scallops. Who wants to go to all that trouble when you can just open a box of Cheese Nips? It doesn’t have to be that way. When taste is what matters most, try these Quick-N-Dirty Cheese Straws.
