1. Meringue Topped Pecan Custard Pie
http://goodfoodie-keith.blogsp... download (, 0.00Mb)

Hey babies...This is your secret weapon recipe... The one you you pull out for special occasions..

It's an amazing variation on the pecan pie everyone knows—the filling is a custardy delight, and the meringue gives the whole thing a lightness that's the perfect ending to a multi-course feast.


Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)

3/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1-3/4 cups 2% milk

6 tablespoons butter, cubed

3 large egg yolks

1 cup chopped pecans, toasted

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


3 large egg whites, room temperature

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

6 tablespoons sugar


On a lightly floured surface, roll pastry to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate.

Trim to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge.

Refrigerate 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 425°.

Line unpricked pastry with a double thickness of foil. Fill with pie weights, dried beans or uncooked rice. Bake on a lower oven rack until edges are light golden brown, 12-15 minutes. Remove foil and weights; bake until bottom is golden brown, 3-6 minutes longer.

Cool on a wire rack. Reduce oven setting to 350°.

In a large heavy saucepan, mix sugar and flour. Whisk in milk and butter. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat to low; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from heat.

In a small bowl, whisk a small amount of hot mixture into egg yolks; return all to pan, whisking constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in pecans and vanilla.

For meringue, in a large bowl, beat egg whites, vanilla and cream of tartar on medium speed until foamy. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high after each addition until sugar is dissolved. Continue beating until soft glossy peaks form.

Transfer hot filling to crust. Spread meringue evenly over filling, sealing to edge of crust. Bake until meringue is golden brown, 12-15 minutes. Cool 1 hour on a wire rack. Refrigerate at least 6 hours before serving. Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches): Combine 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour and 1/4 tsp. salt; cut in 1/2 cup cold butter until crumbly.

 Gradually add 3-5 Tbsp. ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.


 Let pie weights cool before storing. Beans and rice may be reused for pie weights, but not for cooking. 

And there you have it...Eat well my friends!

4. Meringue with Strawberries
http://goodfoodie-keith.blogsp... download (, 0.00Mb)

It's summer and I'm in a desert kind of mood!

Meringue is so simple to make at home; with an electric whisk the mixture takes just minutes to prepare.

The addition of a little lemon juice helps to keep the meringue shiny.

You then pop it in the oven on a low temperature for several hours and go and do something else while the meringue slowly cooks. ( Look at your phone or tablet...Read an excerpt of a book... Read my other two blogs.)

This is a large meringue nest; if you prefer to make smaller nests, cooking time would be reduced by about half. It makes a delicious dessert topped with Italian zabaglione and some fresh strawberries.


For the meringue
•3 egg whites

•1 pinch salt

•250 g caster (superfine) sugar

•0.5 tsp lemon juice

•10 g icing (confectioners’) sugar, sifted

•200 g strawberries, hulled and quartered

For the zabaglione

•4 egg yolks

•100 g caster (superfine) sugar

•3 tbsp Marsala wine


1.Preheat the oven to 75°C/165°F/gas mark ¼ or as low as it will go. Line a 24cm/9½-inch diameter round baking sheet with baking parchment.

2 Put the egg whites and salt in a bowl and whisk until stiff peaks form. Gradually add the caster sugar, whisking all the time. Add the lemon juice and whisk until the sugar has dissolved.

3 Put the mixture into a piping bag (pastry bag) and pipe a large nest onto the baking parchment. Alternatively, if you don’t have a piping bag, you can use a large spoon. Sprinkle with icing sugar and immediately place in the oven for 4 hours.

4 Remove from the oven and leave to cool slightly before carefully removing from the baking sheet, and then leave the meringue to cool fully.

5 Meanwhile, make the zabaglione. In a small heatproof bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, sugar and vin santo. Place over a saucepan of gently simmering water, whisking all the time until the mixture begins to boil and thicken. 6 Remove from the heat, whisk well to get rid of any lumps, and leave to cool. 7 Put the meringue on a serving plate, fill the middle with the zabaglione and decorate with strawberries.

Another nice cool treat for a summer day...Enjoy! Eat Well My Friends!

5. Honey Dew ,Jicama and Mango Salad
http://goodfoodie-keith.blogsp... download (, 0.00Mb)

Heyyyy, Don’t worry about removing all of the melon seeds in this take on the popular Mexican street snack—they’re edible and add a little crunch to your munch!


½ small honeydew or Snow Kiss melon (about 1½ lb.)

 1 small or ½ large jicama (about 14 oz.), peeled, thinly sliced into rounds

1 ripe but firm mango, peeled, thinly sliced

¼ cup fresh lime juice

Kosher salt

Tajín Clásico seasoning and lime wedges (for serving)


Using your hands, pull out some seeds from melon half (you don’t want to ruin the round shape of the inside by scooping with a spoon).

 Place a cut side down and remove rind by slicing down along the curve of the melon with a sharp knife, rotating as you go.

Using a mandoline or a sharp knife, thinly slice melon into rings.

Toss melon, jicama, and mango on a platter with lime juice; season generously with salt.

Sprinkle with Tajín, and serve with lime wedges and more Tajín.

Enjoy!  Eat Well my friends

6. Key Lime Pound Cake
http://goodfoodie-keith.blogsp... download (, 0.00Mb)


This looks so good and unfortunately I can't find a bakery open that has this...but what I can do is lay a recipe on you for making this.


4 sticks butter, that’s 1 pound, room temperature

3 cups sugar

6 large eggs, room temperature

4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup fresh key lime juice

1/4 cup evaporated milk, (I always keep a good number of those small, 5 ounce cans in my pantry.)

4 teaspoons key lime zest, minced

1 teaspoon vanilla extract.


Preheat oven to 300°. Cover inside of 10 inch tube pan with non-stick spray. (My pan is 10 1/2″ and it’s just fine.)

Set aside. Using a stand-up mixer or electric hand-held, beat the butter well until light in color and fluffy.

Add the sugar and again beat well for at least 5 minutes. (I use a stand up mixer and beat the mixture 10-15 minutes. I don’t like a “grainy” cake.)

One at a time add the eggs and beat only until the yellow disappears.

Stir juice, milk, zest and vanilla together.

Now mixing by hand, gradually flour to the butter-egg mixture alternating with the key lime juice and milk mixture.

Begin and end with flour. Mix well but just enough to incorporate all ingredients. (You don’t want a tough pound cake!)

Pour evenly into the tube pan and tap pan on the counter to loosen any air bubbles.

Bake for 1 hour and 45 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean.

 Cool on a cooling rack for 20-25 minutes in the pan then transfer from pan to cooling rack and allow to cool another hour or until completely cool.

The cake is far better the following day or 2 days later.


8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

3-4 tablespoons butter, room temperature 4 cups confectioner’s sugar 1/4 cup freshly squeezed key lime juice

2-3 teaspoons key lime zest

1 teaspoon vanilla extract Using a hand mixer beat cream cheese and butter in a large bowl until well mixed.

Add confectioner’s sugar and beat well until completely smooth and fluffy.

Add key lime juice, zest and vanilla and mix until all ingredients are incorporated.

Ice cake. This makes quite a bit of icing.

After icing the entire pound cake I fill the middle hole with the excess icing. When the cake is served icing can be taken from the middle and dolloped along the side the slice of cake.

Enjoy!  Eat Well My Friends:

8. Pangratto Pasta with Pepperoni
http://goodfoodie-keith.blogsp... download (, 0.00Mb)

Author Emily C. says Blanket your pasta in hearty, spicy, fiery-red pepperoni pangrattato. It's my totally unorthodox version of the classic Italian garnish. The whole dish comes together easily: Make the pangrattato while the water heats. Prepare the sauce while the spaghetti cooks. Top each bowl with the spicy crumbs. In under 20 minutes, dig in at the table.


For the pasta:

 Kosher salt

12 ounces spaghetti

3 tablespoons olive oil

3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

3 tablespoons lemon juice, divided

1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan, plus more for serving

For the Pepperoni Pangrattato:

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 1/2 ounces pepperoni (either pre-sliced or the type sold in sticks), medium chop

1/2 cup panko Lemon zest from 1 large lemon

1/3 cup finely chopped parsley (well-dried to keep the crumbs crispy)


Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil.

1.Add 2 tablespoons salt and spaghetti; cook until al dente according to package directions. (Note that you'll reserve the pasta water; see step 4.)

2. While the water is heating, make the pangrattato: Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add the pepperoni. Cook, stirring, until it starts to render its fat, about 1 to 2 minutes, then add the panko. Stir to evenly coat the panko in the rendered fat. Continue cooking until the crumbs are golden brown and the pepperoni is crispy, about 4 minutes. Off the heat, stir in the lemon zest and parsley.

3.While the spaghetti cooks, prepare the sauce: heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-low heat. Add the garlic, cooking until pale golden, about 2 minutes. Increase the heat to medium-high; add 2 tablespoons lemon juice and 1/2 cup water to the pan. Cook 2 to 3 minutes longer, or until the volume has reduced by half.

4.Using tongs or a pasta ladle, transfer the spaghetti directly into the skillet. Add the Parmesan and toss again.

And there you have it...Enjoy!  Eat well my friends!

5.Serve in bowls and top with the pepperoni pangrattato and more Parmesan, if desired.

15. Easy Peach Cobbler
http://goodfoodie-keith.blogsp... download (, 0.00Mb)


Here is a sweet treat for the beginning of the Week...Perhaps the easiest Peach Cobbler recipe you will find..

The cobbler is a delicious treat that melds together sliced fruit, sugar and a beautiful golden topping. If you love dessert but don't love the floury mess or mathematical challenge of rolling out perfectly concentric pie crusts, then this tutorial on how to make peach cobbler will be your jam.

Choosing the Perfect Peach For this cobbler recipe, below, you'll want to wait for fresh peaches.

How can you tell if they're ready to be plucked—either from a tree in your own personal orchard or if you're an urban kind of person like yours truly then from the grocery store bins?

Look for three indicators of freshness,

1.Color. A deep, golden yellow that's hiding behind the red of the peach.

2.Touch. You're looking for soft to very soft if you want to use the peach right away.

3.Skin Texture. Look for wrinkles of peach skin around the stem, indicating that water is leaving the peach, intensifying its flavor.

Okay, with that said and done on with the recipe..


6-8 large, ripe peaches

2 ½ tablespoons cornstarch

 3/4-1 cup sugar Crust:

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 large egg yolks

¼ cup butter

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup sugar

2 large egg whites, room temperature, stiffly beaten


Step 1: Peel and Slice Your Peaches If this is your first time tackling cobbler, you're going to be a little bit surprised by how diva-ish peaches are. Firstly, they come with a pit. You need to get rid of the pit. Prior to peeling your peaches, which will make them far too slippery to handle, slice around the peach lengthwise and grasp each half of the peach, twisting to separate.

Sometimes this works. Sometimes, you squish the peaches like the Incredible Hulk because you followed the above recommendations and got the really soft peaches, which are perfect, until you try to slice them. If it works, then you can remove the pit and begin to slice and peel (I like to do it in that order). Prepare to be covered in sticky peach juice.

Prepare to rue the day you decided to work with fresh peaches. But trust me, it'll all be worth it. Also, peach cobbler is supposed to be and look messy. If it's messy, you've done it justice! It might help if you take a quick detour and whip up a batch of these sparkling peach Bellinis first.

Step 2: Combine All the Things First combine the sliced peaches, cornstarch and sugar and pour them into a greased 13x9-inch baking dish. (Check out our list of the best casserole dishes—one of these might be your perfect cobbler holder.)

Then combine the flour, egg yolks, butter, baking powder and sugar in another bowl. Fold in the egg whites. Spread over the peaches, or plop down mounds of this in biscuit-like shapes, if you're a stickler for tradition. I preferred to spread it out, accentuating the messy factor. Except I call it "rustic."

Step 3: Bake Until Bubbly You probably wanted to preheat your oven a little earlier. If you forgot, do that now. Your cobbler needs to bake at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes, or until it's bubbly and your biscuit crust is a nice Pinterest-worthy golden brown.

Optional: Add a Cinnamon Sugar Crumble Purists may tell you not to mess with perfection, but for those daring to step outside the box, adding a cinnamon sugar crumble will take your peach cobbler to the next level. 

Combine 1/3 c. sugar, ¼ c. all-purpose flour, 1 tsp. cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Then add 2 tablespoons of cold, unsalted butter, using a fork, until it resembles a crumble. Add to the top of your cobbler for the last 15 minutes of baking.

Serve With Your Finest Vanilla Ice Cream This is a must! You may as well not slow down the sugar train now.

Enjoy!  Eat well My Friends!

16. Pork Marbella
http://goodfoodie-keith.blogsp... download (, 0.00Mb)

Thought I'd come with something fancy this time...Pork Marbella...

I took the classic, beloved Chicken Marbella recipe from The Silver Palate Cookbook and made it weeknight-friendly by using quick-cooking pork tenderloin instead.

The meat is marinated and then cooked in those same delicious juices, which get turned into a luscious sweet-and-sour pan sauce..

Check out the Recipe...


2 1-lb. pork tenderloins

2 tsp. kosher salt

1 cup dry white wine

½ cup pitted prunes, torn in half

⅓ cup (packed) light brown sugar

¼ cup capers,

plus 1 Tbsp. caper brine

½ cup pitted Spanish green olives

¼ cup red wine vinegar

4 garlic cloves, peeled, smashed

2 bay leaves

1 Tbsp. dried oregano

 ¼ cup plus

1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1 Tbsp. unsalted butter

¼ cup chopped parsley


Combine the olive oil, vinegar, prunes, olives, capers, bay leaves, garlic, oregano, thyme, salt and pepper in a large bowl.

Add the pork and stir to coat.

 Cover the bowl or transfer contents to a big Ziploc bag and refrigerate for a couple of hours or overnight. Heat the oven to 400 degrees.

Remove the pork and wipe it off, reserving the marinade. In a medium roasting pan, over medium heat, add a few tablespoons of olive oil and brown pork on all sides, for a few minutes total. Remove pork to a plate and add a couple of splashes of white wine to the pan to deglaze the tasty bits.

Turn off heat. Place the pork back in the pan. Pour marinade, olives and all, over the meat and add 1 cup of wine and enough of the chicken stock so the liquid reaches halfway up the sides of the meat. Sprinkle pork with the brown sugar.

Roast, basting once with the pan juices, until an instant read thermometer reads 140, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove to a cutting board. Let pork rest for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, place the roasting pan over one or two burners on medium high and simmer to reduce the sauce a bit. Slice the pork into medallions. (Great served over a puddle of soft polenta.

Use instant polenta, but add twice the amount of liquid called for on the box: a mix of half milk, half water. After cooking, season with salt and whisk in several tablespoons of butter and a handful or two of freshly grated Parmesan.).

 Spoon a good amount of polenta onto each plate and place medallions on top. Sauce the pork and pass the remaining juice in a gravy boat.

18. Bangers and Mashed
http://goodfoodie-keith.blogsp... download (, 0.00Mb)

Having been to London at least three times in my life...An absolute Pub favorite is Bangers and Mashed....(Sausage and Mashed Potatoes).

Sure, people have found lots of other ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, but those of us who love to honor the Irish roots of the holiday know it’s really all about the food — and a great bangers and mash topped with gravy ,is the second most important part of the holiday (after corned beef and cabbage of course).

This dish is easy to pull off.  If you can’t find traditional Irish sausage (bangers), your favorite go-to sausage will work just as well.


2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled

1/2 cup whole milk (more may be needed)

8 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided

Kosher salt and pepper, to taste

8 Irish sausages

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

2 cups Guinness stout 1 cup beef stock

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce.


To a large pot, add the peeled potatoes, fill with water, and boil over high heat.

Once the potatoes are fork tender, remove them from the heat, and drain.

Add in 4 tablespoons of butter and half of the milk.

Stir to combine while mashing the potatoes.

Add in more milk until you reach the desired consistency.

 Cover to keep warm. While your potatoes are cooking, add the sausages to a large skillet filled with 1 cup of water.

Boil the sausages over medium-high heat until fully cooked.

Add a drizzle of olive oil to the pan just to help crisp the skins of the sausages.

Remove the sausages from the pan, and cover with foil to keep them warm.

To the same pan you used to cook your sausages, set over medium heat, add the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter.

When the butter has melted, whisk in the flour until it’s melted and smooth.

 Slowly pour in the Guinness and beef stock while whisking continually.

Whisk in the Dijon mustard and Worcestershire sauce, and season with salt and pepper.

Boil slightly, until the gravy starts to thicken.

Add in the sausages to rewarm them, and serve with mashed potatoes.

There you have it and enjoy these with a Guiness Stout!

Enjoy!  Eat and drink well my friends!

19. Chicken Fried Steak
http://goodfoodie-keith.blogsp... download (, 0.00Mb)

Hey babies,there are a lot of ways to make a cheap cut of steak tender and delicious, but Southerners know that no marinade holds a candle to a chicken-fried steak. Pound that round steak nice and thin and treat it like the best fried chicken recipe from there. Soon, you’ll know perfection.. Here check out this recipe..

4 round steaks, about 1/2 pound each 2 Cups all-purpose flour 2 Teaspoons salt 2 Teaspoons freshly ground pepper 4 Tablespoons paprika 1/4 Teaspoon cayenne pepper 2 eggs 1/2 Cup buttermilk 1/2 Cup beer 1/2 Cup canola oilDIRECTIONS:

Tenderize the meat by pounding it out until it’s even.

In a medium bowl, mix flour with 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper, paprika and cayenne pepper. Set aside.

In another bowl, whisk in the eggs, buttermilk, beer, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of pepper. Set aside.
In a deep, heavy skillet, heat oil.

While oil is heating, prepare the steaks by dredging them first in the flour mixture, coating evenly. Shake off any excess. Then dip the steaks in the beer batter, followed again by dipping them in flour. Aim for an even coating. Place the steaks on a plate.

Test the oil by dropping a bit of beer batter in. It should sizzle. When ready, gently slide steaks one by one into the oil. Don’t overcrowd the pan. Cook each steak about 3 minutes, then gently turn it, and cook another 3 minutes, or until nicely browned. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with the other steaks. Place cooked steaks on a paper towel-lined plate.

Serve with Southern white gravy, mashed potatoes and Texas toast.

How nice is that..Enjoy Babies!

20. Spiced Lamb Tangine
http://goodfoodie-keith.blogsp... download (, 0.00Mb)

You don’t need a tagine, a conical earthenware pot typically from Morocco, to make this warming, fragrant, tender lamb stew. A Dutch oven works great! This lamb tagine gets its vibrancy from spices like cinnamon, cumin, turmeric, and cardamom. If raisins aren’t your thing, swap them out for another dried fruit like apricots, tart cherries, or prunes—just chop them so they’re raisin-sized.  Check it out!


2 lb. boneless lamb shoulder, excess fat trimmed, cut into 2" pieces
 Kosher salt
3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 large yellow onion, chopped
1 1½" piece fresh ginger, peeled, finely grated
4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 2 bay leaves
 ¼ cup golden raisins
 ⅓ cup plus 2 Tbsp. slivered almonds
 2 Tbsp. tomato paste
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground cumin ½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
 ½ tsp. ground turmeric
¼ tsp. ground cardamom
½ small red onion, very thinly sliced
1 cup mint leaves, torn if large
 ½ lemon


Pat lamb dry with paper towels, then season on all sides with salt.

Let sit at room temperature 1 hour, or chill, uncovered, up to 12 (longer is better; overnight works great).

Heat oil in a large Dutch oven or other heavy pot over medium-high.

Working in batches, cook lamb, turning occasionally, until browned on all sides, 12–14 minutes total.

Using a slotted spoon, transfer lamb to a plate.

Add yellow onion and 2 Tbsp. water to pot and cook, stirring occasionally and scraping browned bits from bottom of pot, until onion is slightly softened, 8–10 minutes.

Add ginger, garlic, bay leaves, raisins, and ⅓ cup almonds.

 Cook, stirring occasionally, until garlic is softened, about 3 minutes.

Return lamb to pot and add tomato paste, cinnamon, cumin, red pepper flakes, turmeric, and cardamom.

 Cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture is fragrant and tomato paste has darkened and is beginning to stick to bottom of pot, about 3 minutes.

Pour in 6 cups water and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to medium-low and bring to a bare simmer.

Cover partially with lid (you want a little space for steam to escape) and cook, stirring occasionally, until lamb is tender and liquid has thickened, 60–75 minutes.

Remove from heat; taste and adjust seasoning with salt.

Meanwhile, toast remaining 2 Tbsp. almonds in a small dry skillet over medium heat, tossing often, until golden brown, 4–6 minutes.

Transfer to a cutting board and let cool before coarsely chopping.

Toss red onion and mint in a small bowl.

Squeeze out juice from lemon over; season with salt.

Toss again to coat. Ladle stew into bowls.

Top with chopped almonds and onion salad.

Enjoy, Eat Well My Friends!

21. Pasta with Creamy Sundried Tomato and Scallion Sauce
http://goodfoodie-keith.blogsp... download (, 0.00Mb)

This is perfect for a snowy day when you're trapped inside...Actually, it's perfect for any day if you like pasta and Italian food like I do.

This  is another 5-ingredient weeknight pasta dinner hero dish.  It’s a recipe to reach for when the most appealing thought about dinner is how little time it will take in front of the stove.

See,I write for working people...Tired working people.

Kosher salt to taste 1 pound spaghetti or other long skinny pasta 6 scallions, trimmed and cut into pieces, both white and green parts(Optional) 16 to 20 sundried tomatoes (in oil, drained), roughly chopped 1 cup half-and-half Freshly ground pepper to taste 1/3 cup chopped parsley ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus more to serveDIRECTIONS:

1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat.  Salt the water generously, and let it return to a boil.  Add the pasta, and cook accordingly to package directions, stirring occasionally.  You will want to drain this pasta and reserve 1 cup of the cooking liquid about two minutes before it is thoroughly cooked, as it will continue to cook in the sauce.

2. While the pasta is cooking, add the scallions, tomatoes and about one quarter cup of half-and-half to a blender or food processor.  Puree the mixture.  Pour it into a saucepan along with the rest of the half-and-half and heat until almost simmering over medium low heat.  Do not allow the mixture to boil or it will separate.  Season with salt and pepper.

3. Drain the almost-cooked pasta, adding 1/2 cup of the reserved cooking water to the creamy sauce.  Return the pasta to the large pot,add the sauce, and toss and stir over medium heat for another minute or two (tongs are very good for this) until the sauce is evenly distributed in the pasta, and the pasta is cooked to your liking.  Add some or all of the remaining pasta cooking water if desired. Stir in the parsley and the ¼ cup Parmesan and serve hot.  Pass the extra Parmesan at the table.

Optional additional ingredients: Add 2 tablespoon drained and rinsed capers along with the Parmesan and parsley, add some shredded fresh basil in addition to, or in place of, the parsley. 
A nice chilled Red Wine would go nicely with this..Enjoy!  Eat  And Drink Well My Friends!

25. Best Wings Ever
http://goodfoodie-keith.blogsp... download (, 0.00Mb)

It's Football Playoff season and what do people like to eat the most during football season...Wings..Baby Wings!

Here is a recipe to help you fix the best wings ever!


You'll Need-
4 pounds chicken wings
2 teaspoons kosher salt
Oil for deep-fat frying
Deep fryer or deep Dutch oven
Wire rack set in a baking pan
Sharp, thin knife

Step 1: Remove wing tipsWhen you purchase chicken wings, you’ll usually get the whole wing, which has three sections: the tip, the wingette, and the drumette. While I may be called for clipping (pardon the football pun), there is very little meat in the tip and it easily burns, so I like to remove that piece and save it for making stock or broth. Using a sharp, thin knife, cut through the joint between the wing tip and the wingette. If you move the joints, it will be easy to see exactly where to cut.
Step 2: Separate wingette and drumetteMoving the joint between the wingette and the drumette will show you exactly where to slice to separate them.  You can purchase frozen and thawed wingettes or drumettes if you want to skip the first two steps. We won’t tell. Step 3: ChillPat the chicken dry with paper towels. Toss wings with kosher salt, and place them on a wire rack in a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Refrigerate at least one hour or overnight. Test Kitchen tip: Salting and chilling will dry out the skin slightly, which is key to getting that skin crispy when they’re fried. Just be sure to leave them uncovered in the fridge so the moisture evaporates. Step 4: Fry ’em up! A home deep fryer is great for cooking wings, but don’t worry if you don’t have one. An electric skillet works well, or you can use a Dutch oven on the stovetop. Fill it with oil so when the wings are added there will be at least one inch of oil covering them with no danger of bubbling over the top. Heat the oil to 375°F. Pat a few wings dry and carefully add them to the oil. Make sure there is plenty of room between the pieces or the oil will cool down too much and they won’t cook quickly. It should take about eight to ten minutes to get nice and golden brown. Remove the wings and drain on paper towels. Let the oil heat back up to 375°F before frying more wings. Step 5: Get saucyNow is your chance to get creative and toss your fried wings with one of the sauce...

Buffalo Wing Sauce-
 Bring ¾ cup of Louisiana-style hot sauce just to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove from heat and whisk in ¼ cup butter one piece at a time. Stir in 2 Tbsp. molasses and ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper. Can’t get enough Buffalo chicken?

Spicy Thai Sauce-
 Saute 1 tsp. fresh minced ginger, one minced garlic clove and a Thai chili pepper in 1 Tbsp. canola oil until the aroma is intense, about two minutes. Stir in ¼ cup brown sugar and 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice. Bring to a boil; cook until slightly thickened, five minutes. Stir in 2 Tbsp. fresh chopped cilantro and 1 Tbsp. fish sauce (we know it smells, but it adds a great flavor).

Spicy Barbecue Sauce..

Heat your favorite prepared barbecue sauce in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in two minced chipotle peppers, 2 Tbsp. honey and 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until it’s slightly thickened, which should take about five minutes, depending on how thick your barbecue sauce is. Now the only thing you have to worry about is encroachment—last pun—from your guests looking to score a hot wing.

Or all three...

Enjoy!  Eat Well My Friends!
