Apricot Sriracha Wings

So…apparently I have a fixation here lately.

Wings.
Apricot Sriracha Wings These, however, are not your typical ass wings. They’re sweet, spicy and a little bit crunchy.

I decided to bread them with coconut flour, which was an experimentation.

I’m so glad I did.

See, sometimes I feel the need to step outside of the proverbial foodie box and do different shit just for the sake of doing it.

It’s fun. That’s why I do this.

The coconut flour adds a special element of sweetness along with the spicy/sweet sauce, which consists of apricot preserves, dijon mustard, Stubbs’ Texas Sriracha sauce (that stuff is now my new obsession), soy sauce and a little more Sriracha.
Apricot Sriracha Wings Scale back on the Sriracha if you’re not into heat, but I like to burn my mouth a little. Not a whole lot, mind you, but just enough to really feel it. You can roll the wings around in the sauce after you fry them or just drizzle it on top of them. I did both.

You’ll need lots of napkins.

Pineapple Jamaican Jerk Wings

I more than likely haven’t shared with you how much I love wings.

Especially hot ass wings.
Pineapple Jamaican Jerk Wings These are hot and spicy, but a teensy bit sweet and so damn good.

I marinated these with a Jamaican Jerk marinade overnight and baked them. Fact about me; I only like beer when I eat wings. Not sure why that is, but I do, and it’s usually Corona Light.  It makes no sense, but it’s what I do.

Here’s the Jerk seasoning I used –

It’s so good with the pineapple juice – just sweet enough to compliment that heat.

This one is fanfuckingtastic. Excuse my language, but y’all know me by now.

Sometimes I get these notions, and thankfully when I do a trial run most of them work. Most of them. I’ve definitely bombed a thing or two, don’t get me wrong.
Tomato Basil Cheese Stuffed Burger With Jalapeno BLT Slaw See that cheese oozing out?

That’s Cabot’s Tomato Basil Cheddar – it’s amazing. The burger is juicy; I used 80/20 ground chuck that has just enough fat, but not too much. The cheese barely oozed while cooking, which was perfect, and the slaw complemented the cheese so well.  Tomato Basil Cheese Stuffed Burger with Jalapeno BLT Slaw

Ready for more sliders? 
BBQ Steak Blue Cheese Sliders
I think I may be a little addicted.

To making sliders, that is.
Continue reading

These are one of the best I’ve ever made, however. I seared filet mignon medium rare and topped it with Stubbs Sweet Heat BBQ Sauce. That sauce is the bomb – huge barbecue flavor and sweet with a kick. I added caramelized onions and green peppers and blue cheese.

The flavors together are off the charts.
BBQ Steak Blue Cheese Sliders The filets are from Kansas City Steak Company, and they are amazing – so tender you could cut them with a butter knife. If you don’t remember, they were a sponsor at the World Food Championships last November where I placed in the top ten of the blogger division. Click here to see a rendition of the steak I made (you’ll love it).

The blue cheese in this one takes it so over the top…in a good way.
