Spicy Blueberry Topping

I forgot the whipped cream..Dang!

I forgot the whipped cream..Dang!

Yep, I’m on blueberries again and probably will be posting more since our wild blueberries here are thicker than we have ever seen! We’ve picked about 3 quarts so far with more on their way to be cooked up in some tasty food to satisfy our tummies and add a few unwanted pounds, ha ha! Our black berries kind of fizzled out this year for some unknown reason, leaving way, I guess for the blueberries to steal the show! With so many berries, I really didn’t want to freeze them all and was very thankful the other day when I saw that my friend Bonnie over at bonniebanters.com just posted a special trick that she has on keeping all kind of berries fresher for longer in your frig. Go check it out as all kinds of berries are in season as we speak and she has plenty of delicious recipes for you to try. It was a new one on me and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

Can't wait to try it.....

Can’t wait to try it…

This recipe has already graced the top of Kenny’s homemade ice cream and my daughter is making up a batch to serve over cheesecake that she is taking to a church supper this week. Now she has me in the mood to make a cheesecake for us here at the homestead. Our berries here aren’t as sweet as the ones that are grown commercially but that’s okay by us, they’re FREE and actually taste more like the berries I used to pick with my dad when I was young; young, when the hell was that? Well, let’s get on with this recipe that has just enough spices to compliment the flavor of the berries………

We have a lot more pick'en to do!

Chinese Honey Baked Wing

flowers and chicken 010

First of all, let me wish all the mothers out there a Super Great Mother’s Day! Fresh steaks are in the frig waiting on my chef along with a nice big salad and of course fresh corn on the cob which is starting to appear in our stores here in Florida. This will also be the first Mother’s Day in many moons that our daughter will be dining with us on this special day!
I altered this recipe a little from the original that I found in a cookbook from 1980 that calls for them to be baked in the marinade for the entire cooking time, as we all like our wings dry and usually deep-fried first and then baked off in the oven to give them a nice crispy coating. Impressed with the end result, I’m sure you will enjoy them too!
