Pineapple Caramel Sauce is rich and buttery with a hint of island sweetness. It’s easy to prepare and is delicious on desserts or fresh fruit.

Last weekend, I tried out the new Guy Fieri Vegas Kitchen and Bar at the Quad. If you haven’t been to the Quad since it was formerly known as Imperial Palace, you need to check it out. The casino has been completely remodeled, and outside there is an awesome cobblestone walkway called the Linq. It’s …

Bacon Wrapped Cinnamon Rolls

Yep. You read that right. Bacon Wrapped Cinnamon Rolls. Why let the fried eggs and toast have all the fun? Salty, crispy bacon goes quite nicely with soft, sweet cinnamon rolls.

Cheesy Garlic Bites

Even though I grew up in the South, I’m not ashamed to use canned biscuits, especially when it turns into a cheesy, garlicy, crunchy coated magical morsel like these Cheesy Garlic Bites. The concept is simple: flatten each pre-cooked biscuit and wrap it around a fresh mozzarella cheese ball. Pop it in a mini muffin …

Slow Cooker Reuben Sandwiches

I recently stumbled upon a recipe where someone put lunchmeat in a crockpot with beef broth. I wish I could remember the source, so I could give them credit. That recipe inspired me to try other lunchmeats in the slow cooker…and that’s how the Slow Cooker Reuben Sandwich was born. No need to spend hours …

Thai Roasted Chicken with Coconut Milk and Basil Mashed Sweet Potatoes

One of my favorite Zesties wants to break free of traditional flavors to go Thai. I often find that home cooks are willing to try something new, but convincing the rest of the family is tricky. When you serve something unfamiliar, the kids and better half may turn up their noses before they even take …

Buffalo Pig Wings

Why is it that chicken wings get all the hype during March Madness parties? Probably because they’re crispy, spicy, juicy and easy to eat. Well move over chicken, it’s time for pigs to fly.
