OMG, how good do these look? I made these sweet and sour chicken wings on a whim over the weekend because C requested wings for the NFL playoffs. I don’t much care for the teams that are in the playoffs this year, except for NY Giants, but I was way more excited about eating wings (typical me).
I love the combination of sweet and sour. I usually do not like sweet foods on its own, but the addition of sour really balances the flavors and I enjoyed this a lot. It was such a nice change to the hot wings that we usually eat, and I was happy that my mom really liked it as well.
I highly recommend broiling the wings at the end if you like crispy chicken wings. I love biting into the slight char on the skin, especially when it’s coated in the sticky, yummy sauce.
Also, it’s awards season! Anyone watch the Golden Globes last night? How fun. Seeing from the results, it looks like I really need to go see La La Land. I mean, I don’t need much convincing when it’s a love story with 2 very good looking people starring in it.
Whether it’s a game day or an awards show watching night, I think you’ll love these sweet and sour chicken wings. It definitely was a hit in our household!
Hello from LA! We are finally at our final destination on our Pacific Coast Highway road trip and I’m seriously loving all the palm trees, sunshine, and the warm weather. I’d rather not got back to NorCal but we’ll be heading back on January 1st. At least that’s the plan for now.
I also plan to do a blog post on this trip with my mom and how we handled being on an AIP diet for almost 2 weeks while on the road, so stay tuned! In the meantime, I’m excited to share this delicious daikon radish fries with you. These are AIP as well, and I made them so my mom and I can enjoy them together.
If you are even a little bit normal, fries are the best, most addicting things ever. I can go to town on them, but I don’t love the crappy oils that they cook them in at restaurants and I can feel the brain fog afterwards. So I try to make them at home often, and these daikon radish fries came together the other day when I had a giant daikon radish leftover after making my slow cooker Korean short ribs.
If they look slightly burnt, that’s all good. That just means they crisped up nicely and will give that delicious crunch. My only complaint was that I didn’t make enough! These were dangerously addicting and were gone in no time. My mom couldn’t stop raving about how good they were.
If you are looking for a tasty and addicting fries recipes that’s healthy and lower in carbs, you need to make these daikon radish fries because they are awesome!
Brr!! It’s cold outside, guys! For the past 2 and a half years that we’ve lived in California, it’s never frozen over and this past weekend, it was in the low 30s. So I’ve been cocooning myself inside with the dogs in layers and blankets trying to keep warm. I know there are places in the country where people are snowed in and the temperature is way colder, but I’m a total wuss when it comes to the cold.
When the temperature drops like this, the thought of slow cooked meat is sooooo comforting to me. This is why I was so excited when I realized that I have a huge bottom round beef roast in my freezer, waiting to be defrosted.
I feel like this is the busiest season for so many of us, so it’s a great idea to take advantage of the “set it and forget it” method to avoid spending hours in the kitchen. This is why I’m such a fan of the slow cooker and the Instant Pot! I also love the amount of leftovers you can get out of beef roast, and I’ve used the meat the next few days for stir fry, in my omelette, and even as a taco meat! You make it once and you use it for 2-3 more meals, which is such a time and money saver, especially because roast meat is usually cheaper than other cuts of beef.
Hope you spend the week finishing up some holiday errands, cooking up some comforting meals (I highly recommend THIS ONE), and staying warm!
