This chocolate syrup recipe is made with raw organic agave nectar and unprocessed cocoa, which is great for diabetics and health conscious consumers wanting to avoid sugar, corn syrup, and artificial sweeteners. This syrup is great on ice cream, in coffee, and any recipe that calls for chocolate syrup!
I originally made this recipe up to dip some bacon-wrapped shrimp in, but we soon found out that it was good on all kinds of chips and crackers also!
These little ham balls are backed in a brown sugar sauce and are always a party favorite. Perfect served as a side dish or to bring to a potluck.
This is a quick and easy hot chicken wing sauce which I arrived at through years of trial and error. If you like it hot, you'll love this recipe. It covers anywhere from 15-40 wings, depending on their size.
This may sound odd, but tripe, when properly prepared, is an amazing thing! With the milk bath, and the harsh heat of frying, it loses quite a bit of its intimidatingly harsh flavour. This is a fun appetizer for your pork lovers, and will have them guessing as to what part of the porker you just fried! The sauce uses the traditional combo for any recipe that is "deviled": Mustard, cayenne pepper, and Worcestershire sauce.
This version of guacamole has a fresh taste and a bit of a bite.
Perfectly cooked and then chilled jumbo shrimp served with a spicy "Carolina" style remoulade sauce. This is ultimate man food: you can eat it with your hands, its spicy, you can make it ahead of time, leftovers (if there are any) can be eaten for a snack any time of day, and let's face it, woman are way more impressed with this easy appetizer than with chips and french onion dip.
This is a vinegar and mustard based "Carolina Style" sauce, as opposed to most ketchup and molasses based sauces. The combination of sweet and tangy flavors brings out the absolute best in grilled pork and chicken. This is the only sauce I use for my ribs!
The method for these tender, flavorful chicken legs? Low and slow, my friend, low and slow.
Wow your friends by making this delicious Asian appetizer at home.
This is a sweet and hot variation of traditional buffalo sauce. It can be used as a dipping sauce or to coat your wings.
Back in the day I had to work, it was 12-hour shifts, 7 days in a row. On Sundays when we were on daytime shifts (we worked nights, too, but not on the same week!), we'd get together and bring in a really nice dinner. This dip was always required, not just by my crew, but by the day-staffers that came in on Monday, too!
You're a busy guy. You've got ballgames to watch, beer to drink, dogs to pet. So maybe you don't have hours to sit by a smoker. Tasty ribs can still be yours with this fast grill-to-oven method.
A trick play for your football gathering. Instead of the typical red hot sauce wings, give this recipe a try. Still spicy, just from a different source--horseradish instead of chili peppers.
With all these spices--Tabasco, mustard, horseradish, more mustard--you'll enjoy the dip even if you don't like the gizzards.
With all these spices--Tabasco, mustard, horseradish, more mustard--you'll enjoy the dip even if you don't like what you're dipping in it.
No cooking needed for this delicious dipping sauce. Shrimp can handle all these spices--are you man enough?
This simple recipe gives you wings without all the hassle of deep-frying. You won't have that crispy crust, but all the taste is there.
Simple meatballs get a boozy boost from a sweet, savory, smoky whiskey sauce. (Inspired by david's "Cosmic Meatballs.")
Adapted from an idea from the mad cooks of the Gastonia (NC) Grizzlies baseball team. If you can, get out to Gastonia's Sims Park and try their version. It comes with a challenge: If you can eat the nachos in ten minutes, they'll pay for 'em and put your pic on a Wall of Fame.
