Appetizers


Hawaiian Slaw

This Hawaiian Slaw Recipe is one special number.  Out of this world with pretty much anything. However, there is nothing more that I love than some smoked pulled pork, whole Hog or Brisket with a couple sides of homemade fries, potato salad, some Hawaiian Bread and a ice cold home brew!


Bar-B-Que Chicken Drumsticks

  Jon and I have been making barbequed drumsticks on the grill for a long time; they are quick, easy and tasty, but we’ve never used a rub. We’ve been missing out! The combination of the spicy rub and the spicy-sweet sauce is simply mouthwatering. Using the two together really ramps up the flavor. Juicy […]


Homemade Sushi Recipe

  Homemade Sushi isn’t as popular as one would think, we thought uncovering a little of the mystery may help some of you try this at home.   *You will need a sushi roller to complete this recipe.


Stuffed & Smoked Jalapeno Peppers

  Or ABT’s as we affectionately call them. For those not in the know ABT stands for Atomic Buffalo Turds. And where that may not sound appetizing the first time you hear it, one taste and you will change your mind immediately. If you do not have access to a smoker these can be easily […]


Soft & Warm Pretzel Bread

I really don’t remember the first time that I tried pretzel bread, but I feel like it was only within the past couple of years. There are two fine dining establishments (that I can think of) here in Fort Wayne that serve great pretzel bread and I’m pretty sure that I tried it for the […]


Big Game Shrimp Cocktail

  It seems like every other commercial on TV right now is from some fast food joint, extolling the virtue of supplying your Super Bowl party from their menu. Sure, it is easy to just run out for some wings and pizza, but this year, you might want to try something that is a step […]


Pate-Style Vegan Appetizer

This unassuming vegan appetizer will impress everyone! I attended a baby shower for my sister-in-law, hosted by GreenB.E.A.N. Delivery owner Beth Blessing. As she welcomed me into her home, Beth pointed out several vegan appetizers on the baby buffet. And as awesome as it is to have someone recognize AND cater to the vegan diet, […]


Southwest Ovenfried Chicken Tenders

  It is getting to be that time of year again. You know chicken what I mean, right? That special time to gather your friends and family to enjoy that yearly ritual of watching the Super Bowl! Now, I have to admit that we are not huge football fans around here, but we do catch […]


Bacon Wrapped Pickled Watermelon Rind

Looking for a new appetizer to wow your friends at your next party or tailgating event?  Looking for a sure fire way to grab their attention, look no further this recipe uses bacon which is always a sure thing combined with an unusual snack like pickled watermelon rinds.  Quick, easy, bacon, Cajun, what else could […]

A cool and refreshing shrimp dip that is fast and easy to prepare, perfect for summer cook-outs and picnics!
