Sweet and Spicy Chicken Wings

spicychicken

Sweet and Spicy Chicken Wings
 
Thanks to their distinctive smokey flavor, canned chipoltle peppers really bring this recipe to life, but they can be a little intimidating if you haven't worked with them before. Here are a couple tips to keep in mind: First, be careful while handling the peppers not to rub your eyes! If you have sensitive skin, wear gloves. Most recipes call for a very small amount (for good reason!), which means you end up with an almost full can when you finish. To get around this, remove the peppers from the can and pour all of the flavorful liquid into a food processor. If you don't have one, use a small glass bowl. Cut the peppers in half and scrape out and discard the seeds. The seeds pack a lot of heat, so keep some of them if you like extra spice. Place the peppers in your food processor and pulse them until a paste is formed. If you don't have a food processor, finely mince the peppers with a knife and add them to the bowl of reserved liquid. Stir to combine thoroughly. Next, line a large plate with plastic wrap and scoop the pepper paste in 1 teaspoon measurements onto the plate, leaving enough space between them that they don't run together. Place plate in the freezer to harden. Once set, wrap the edges of the plastic wrap around the now-firm pepper paste portions and place in a freezer-safe bag and freeze. Pull out 1 or 2 teaspoon-sized portions and use in your favorite chili or other recipe that calls for a little heat. Start small with the amount of chipoltle peppers you use. You can always add more if you like a little more heat.
Ingredients
  • 3 pounds chicken wings
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3-4 cloves fresh garlic, finely minced
  • 1 T. fresh ginger, finely minced
  • 2 tsp canned chipoltle peppers
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • ⅓ cup soy sauce
  • 2 T. rice wine vinegar
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with nonstick cooking spray. Add chicken wings to baking sheet in a single layer, not touching or overcrowding. Season wings with salt and pepper, then place in oven. Bake until skin is crisp, approximately 45 - 50 minutes.
  2. About 20 minutes before the wings are done, add garlic and butter to a saucepan and heat over medium heat until garlic becomes translucent. Reduce heat to low and add ginger, chipoltle peppers, honey, soy sauce and vinegar. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes, until the liquid becomes syrupy.
  3. Transfer the sauce to a glass bowl and add the cooked wings. Toss until coated and either serve immediately, or place on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper (or sprayed with non-stick cooking spray) and place under broiler for a couple minutes, until brown and bubbly. Serve with celery and carrots and ranch dressing.

Pulled BBQ Pork Sliders

PulledPorkSliders

Pulled BBQ Pork Sliders
 
This recipe is perfect for those hot summer days when the idea of standing in front of a hot stove is more than you can stand. All you need to do is put the ingredients into your slow cooker first thing in the morning and you’ll have a yummy, easy dinner waiting for you at the end of the day. The BBQ aspect of this recipe is fairly low key. Adding it to the slow cooker infuses the meat with a great BBQ flavor, but the meat won’t be saturated in it. If you want more pronounced BBQ flavor on your sliders, you can add more sauce to the meat after it is shredded.
Ingredients
  • 2 pound pork shoulder roast
  • 1 T. kosher salt
  • 1 ½ t. black salt
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¾ cup prepared BBQ sauce
  • 2 whole cloves garlic, smashed, peels removed, roughly chopped
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 T. shallot, minced
  • slider buns, opened with inside buttered and grilled (or toasted in the oven)
  • red cabbage, thinly sliced (optional)
Instructions
  1. Add the pork shoulder to slow cooker and season with salt and pepper. Add cider vinegar, BBQ sauce, garlic, onion, and shallot. Cover and cook for 8 hours on low.
  2. The roast should be very tender after 8 hours. Carefully remove from slow cooker and place on a serving platter or cutting board reserved for meat. Using a fork in each hand, start “pulling” in two directions, working on one small section of pork at a time. The goal is to “shred” the meat into small strands.
  3. Place shredded meat into a serving container or add it directly to the prepared slider buns. Top with red cabbage for some crunch and color - or add any of your favorite toppings. Serve immediately.

This popular soup from the Andalusian area , (an autonomous community of Spain), mostly known now for being served cold, has many different influences from Greece and Rome, but also from the Moor's and Arab culture.

Different vegetables and almonds that were available were also added, but now this soup evolved into different varieties, the most popular around the world is a tomato based variety, served cold, heated in certain regions in Spain.

Broccoli and Bow-Tie Pasta Salad

BroccoliPastaSalad_3

Broccoli and Bow-Tie Pasta Salad
 
The addition of salt-cure lemons to this recipe really brings it to life. Although it is very good without them, the lemons make you stop and think, “Wow. What was that?” Don’t add extra salt to the salad without tasting, however. The briny cured lemons are very intense on their own, but season a larger dish like this perfectly. You can make this recipe a day or two ahead and store in the refrigerator, so it’s perfect for taking to summer gatherings.
Ingredients
  • Salad:
  • 1 cup Farfalle (Bow-Tie) Pasta, cooked according to package directions
  • 1 head broccoli, florets only
  • 1 red bell pepper, core removed and cut into thin slices
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, core removed and cut into thin slices
  • 4 sliced preserved, salt-cured lemon, finely chopped including rinds
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries [optional]
  • Dressing:
  • 1 cup traditional Greek yogurt (full fat)
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 T. high-quality extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 T. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 T. fresh lemon zest
  • salt and black pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. In a glass bowl, combine yogurt, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, and zest with a fork or whisk. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Place broccoli florets into a microwave safe bowl with 1 T. water, cover and microwave until slightly tender, about 4 or 5 minutes. Microwave times vary, so check after 3 minutes and adjust time accordingly. Set aside to cool completely.
  3. In a large bowl, combine cooked pasta, steamed broccoli, red and yellow pepper, cured lemon and cranberries. Toss to mix well. Add some yogurt dressing and toss again until thoroughly combined and serve.

The Best Household Items You Can Use to Create Challenging Bodyweight Exercises

download (19)

2016 All Rights Reserved, WendyWeighsin

 

If you want to train your strength using just your bodyweight, then there are a vast range of different exercises you can use. One of the best parts? You don’t need any equipment to get started.

But don’t make the mistake of thinking that bodyweight training always means ‘without equipment’. Often you’ll use equipment to enhance your bodyweight routines and perhaps the most obvious example of this is a pull up bar or a dipping station. With either of these two items, you can get a much more intensive and effective workout in and thereby build muscle faster.

But it’s not just pull up bars and dipping stations you can use. In fact, one of the great things about training with bodyweight is just how versatile it is. Anything you can hang off of or lean on can become a piece of equipment to train with and it will surprise you just how much of a difference something like that can make.

Here are some pretty compelling examples…

Chairs

Chairs can easily become dipping stations if you position two opposite one another. At the same time, they can also provide something for you to put your back leg on when doing lunges, or they can allow you to jump straight up onto them. Likewise, chairs can be arranged in a triangle in order to do ‘increased range of motion push ups’. These are simply push ups, except you are dipping down further than level with your hands.

Cans

Take two cans of coke and you can create very convincing push up stands. Place one palm on each and you now have to engage your forearm strength as well as your balance and core in order to perform a push up as normal!

Towels

A towel is actually an incredibly versatile piece of training equipment. Hanging from a doorframe, this can provide something for you to hold while performing neutral grip pull ups, which will also train your grip. Likewise, you can use it to perform tricep extensions in the same position or you can trap it in a door and lean back in order to perform leaning back rows.

Punch Bag

A punch bag is an actual piece of training equipment that can be fantastic when combined with a usual bodyweight workout. This is an example of resistance cardio and one of the best ways to build muscle, burn fat and get your hormones pumping. What makes a punch bag so effective is that you are accelerating through the movement. This means that you’re engaging all those fast twitch fibers just as you would when lifting heavy weights!

Skateboard

Instead of an ab roller, consider using a skateboard. You can then also use this to perform crawls along the ground (for pec training) as well as many other wonderful exercises that require one or two limbs to slide along the ground or move independently from the rest of your body.

And this is just scratching the surface! Take a look around you and see what else can be turned into a piece of training equipment!
