Grilled spiralized deli style hot dogs

  What the what?! Grilled spiralized deli style hot dogs is quite a mouthful. Get this, so is the actual hot dog. Sooo the history between the classic hot dog and myself is quite long…and frequent.

Baked Pomegranate Chicken Poppers

    Who doesn’t love a good sticky batch of chicken poppers? When I was coming up with the concept for the pomegranate chicken poppers, I told my husband I want to make wings. He said, “Wings? Why would you make wings if I don’t like them? Make poppers!” Oh poppers. Duh. I hadn’t made […]

Alabama Wings with White BBQ sauce

I like my chicken wings only two ways. Grilled or fried. This is one of my favorite recipes! The baking powder helps give the skin a crunchy texture and the sauce, is not your typical BBQ sauce. It seeps into the chicken and gives it a richness and burst of tang! They sure know how […]

Chanukah has come and gone and we’ve had our fair share of snow already (in my opinion!!) It’s been great and exhausting getting into routine. (Is it winter break yet?!)
