2 TBSP butter

1/2 cup minced onion

1 tsp chopped garlic

1/2 cup honey

8 oz BBQ sauce

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 oz Jack Daniels

3-6 oz wing sauce

1/8 tsp pepper

1 TBSP Dijon mustard

 

Melt the butter and saute the onion and garlic. Add all the other ingredients. When making wings it's important to not overcook them. Do about 13 wings at a time at 350 in a deep fryer and cook about 8 minutes. Pat off wings with paper towel and drench with sauce. Remove from sauce and put on a separate plate. Serve with Blue Cheese dressing. I love Jimmy's chunky.

12 Rhodes yeast dinner rolls, thawed to room temperature or refrigerated pizza crust

½ cup pizza sauce

¾ cup grated provolone cheese

¾ cup grated mozzarella cheese

¾ cup grated white cheddar cheese

Deli pepperoni slices

Purple onion rings

Salami slices (I used sausage instead)

Olive slices

Green pepper

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray counter lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Combine rolls and shape them or refrigerated pizza dough into a large teardrop shape. On rounded end cut down sides 3 to 4 inches to form arms. Pull arms out and tuck pointed ends under. Place on a large sprayed baking sheet. Pull bottom of ghost to one side. Poke with a fork several times to prevent bubbles from forming. Bake 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool slightly. Spread pizza sauce evenly over crust. Sprinkle evenly with any pizza toppings you like; evenly top with cheeses (use any cheeses you have on hand). Use red onion slices for eyes and green pepper for mouth; decorate face as desired. Bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until cheese is nicely melted. (Adapted from rhodes.com)

Cooking spray

1 cup chopped yellow onion

1 bell pepper (red or yellow preferred), chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

salt/pepper

1 lb ground turkey, preferably ground turkey thighs

1 teaspoon chipotle powder or chili powder (or to taste)

2 Tbsp chopped cilantro

 

Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium high heat. Add the chopped onions and bell pepper and cook until onions and peppers are softened. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds more. Push the vegetables to the edge of one side of the pan and position that side of the pan so that it is off the burner, away from the heat. The empty part of the pan should be right over the burner. Put crumpled chunks of ground turkey in the pan, sprinkle with salt and chipotle or chili powder. Cook the turkey without stirring until it is browned on one side, then turn the pieces over to brown the other side. Once the turkey is just cooked through, stir in the onions and peppers, and sprinkle with more salt and chili powder to taste. Remove from heat. Stir in fresh chopped parsley or cilantro. Serve alone, or with steamed rice or noodles.
