Recipes Reviews

 

Sweet & Sour Chicken

The recipe is well written and every component offers solid flavor: the sauce is great, the chicken and coating are great, the coconut oil is even great (sometimes I find the flavor distracting, here it works). So glad I made a full batch so I’ll have leftovers to bring to work for lunch.

Dry Ranch Wings

I’ve made wings from a number of recipes but this one delivers on flavor, crispness, and still perfectly moist. Simple dry rub then 50 minutes in 400 degree oven.
