Southern Smothered Pork Chops

So since today, Paula Deen came out about having diabetes, whodda thunk, I figured I’d highlight 2 recipes of hers that I’m a big fan of. Neither of these require a ton of butter or butter cream, and are actually somewhat healthy and really tasty.

Chinese Sticky Hot Wings

Here’s a great Chinese Sticky Glaze that you can use the next time your cooking up chicken wings or any kind of poultry on the grill. The saltiness of the soy sauce is a great compliment to the sweetness of the honey, and you still have a layer of heat with the jalapenos and pepper flakes. Plus it’s great for a marinade also!

Spicy Garlic Croutons

My favorite snack of all time has got to be croutons. When I worked at Armstrong’s, they used to make their own fresh ones everyday and I would go thru them by the handful.  They’re really easy to make and they last for about 2 weeks. I’ll prob add some other crouton recipes I have, because let’s face it, you can never have too many croutons.
