Spinach Bacon Strawberry Crostini

I love an appetizer or canapé that provides a really interesting opener to a meal or cocktail party. Something that requires little effort, saving your culinary strengths for the main course or more complex bites. Spinach bacon strawberry crostini ticks all those boxes, and because of its mix of meat and fruit, never fails to surprise those who are lucky enough to get a taste.

Tamarind Chicken Wings

Game day just isn’t game day without chicken wings. But if you try this recipe, be careful, they may distract your guests from the game. Tamarind chicken wings are the best. Their tasty crispiness runs a very close second to the sticky awesomeness of the slightly spicy tamarind sauce. You and your guests will be licking lips and fingers as you take chunks out of these bad boys.
