Meredith’s Yummy Ciabatta Pizza

Something important to know about me: I have the most intense and spontaneous craving for pizza. I can’t explain it. I’d like to think that I have a sophisticated palette, but there are some days when the only thing pleasing my taste buds is a warm delicious pizzaRead the rest of this entry »

Recipe Walkthrough: Brown Sugar and Garlic Chicken Crockpot

A few weeks ago our social media followers raved over the recipe we posted for a Brown Sugar and Garlic Chicken Crockpot. Typically this type of response warrants one of us editors trying the recipe out at home, and I again raised my hand with delight!  My previous cooking endeavor was none other than the Bacon Sour Cream Chicken Crockpot, so I figured I might continue my crockpot experimentation.

Fortunately, this was not the first time I’ve combined brown sugar and garlic in a dish. I actually made a brown sugar and minced garlic glaze for an oven baked chicken once, and loved it. And without giving it away too much, I was equally as impressed with the taste in the crockpot version!

I also forget how easy and painless cooking with a crockpot can be. I wish I had more insight and secrets to this recipe, but you literally mix all the ingredients together and pour it over the chicken. Set your slow cooker on your allotted time and walk away. About 30 minutes later you’ll start to get a whiff of the cooked brown sugar and you’ll have to remind yourself there AREN’T cookies in the oven.

Just make your life easier and get this combination every time so you have one less decision to agonize over.

 

Plain bagel+ sweet cream cheese (blueberry, honey walnut, etc)= You enjoy the simple things in life, like sitting on your front porch with a cup of coffee in the morning and listening to the birds. Sometimes people think you’re slow and can get impatient with you though. Read the rest of this entry »

Behold The Pizzaburger

This past weekend I was asked to sample a new menu item at Boston’s, a neighborhood sports bar and restaurant famous for it’s hand tossed gourmet pizzas. This month Boston’s debuted a new menu item they appropriately call their “bundle of joy”. The bundle in question? The stuffed Pizzaburger. I must admit, the rather intimidating looking burger had me a little nervous. Naturally I love pizza, and I’ve been known to kill a burger or two, but never had I considered combining the two. I like to think I have a somewhat refined pallet, but I’m also in my twenties and enjoy cheesy and greasy bar food from time to time. I knew I was meeting my match with this burger, which is why in preparation for my lunch at Boston’s I refrained from eating anything. I wanted my stomach completely prepared for this gluttonous experience. Read the rest of this entry »
