Slow Cooker Buffalo WingsBy Ginny's TeamThere's no better way to feed a hungry crowd at a Super Bowl party than with slow cooker buffalo wings! Deep frying can be messy and time-consuming; putting buffalo wings in the slow cooker is a hands-off way to make juicy, delicious wings. The meat will practically fall off the bone after spending a few hours in the slow cooker. Just make sure to have lots of napkins on hand for your guests! The best slow cooker buffalo wings are as messy as they are tasty.

Apple Pancakes SizedApple PancakesBy Ginny's TeamIt just so happens that two special events collide - Johnny Appleseed Day and National Pancake day. On September 26th, every year we celebrate the two. On this very day, in 1774, John Chapman (known as Johnny Appleseed) was born in Massachusetts. He is celebrated throughout much of the Midwest for planting apple trees across the area. THANK YOU JOHNNY! What better way to celebrate this special collision of "holidays" than with Apple Pancakes? Apple Pancakes are fluffy and sweet with a touch of cinnamon - ideal for a chilly Sunday morning in the fall. And who doesn't love their home smelling like spicy apples all day?
Creamy Macaroni and CheesePressure Cooker Macaroni and CheeseBy Ginny's TeamCreamy Macaroni and Cheese is a great first recipe to try in your new electric pressure cooker. It only takes about 20 minutes from start to finish and lets you work out all of your pressure cooker nerves and fears. It will help you practice using the "Quick Release" of the pressure valve and become familiar with all of the fun pressure cooker functions.
Beer-Battered Onion RingsBy Ginny's TeamWelcome in the summer and delight your guests at barbecues and parties with homemade beer-battered onion rings! Serve them as an appetizer before a barbecue, as a side to delicious burgers, or even on top of a juicy steak. It's important for your onions to be sweet, since the right onion will really improve the taste of the onion rings. You can slice them as thick or as thin as you'd like; it's all about personal preference. The same rule goes for the cup of beer the recipes calls for. Just use your preferred brew! These beer-battered onion rings are so tasty that you'll have to make sure to set enough aside for yourself before you let your guests try them, or they'll be gone before you know it.
Mango and Avocado SaladBy Ginny's TeamA mango and avocado salad on a warm day brings to mind beaches, tropical breezes, and ocean sunsets--all just in your own backyard! We love the hot weather flavors of mangoes, peppers, and cilantro combined with healthy yet delicious avocados. Make sure your avocados are ripe yet firm; you want to be able to stir them into the salad without mushing them! Feel free to subtract the jalapeno if hot peppers aren't quite your style, though we love the unexpected kick it adds. Mango and avocado salad is a great weekend appetizer or easy weekday side dish. Mango and Avocado Salad recipe upgrade tip: Mango and Avocado Salad is also delicious served as a chunky salsa with tortilla chips. Simply slice the mangoes and avocados into smaller chunks.
Reuben RollsBy Ginny's TeamReuben rolls made with sauerkraut is a great way to use up leftovers. Have leftover cabbage? Make a quick sauerkraut by chopping the cabbage finely, sautéing until wilted, and then tossing with the following ingredients: two tablespoons cider vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of brown sugar, and a sprinkle of dried mustard. Reuben rolls also use corned beef, potatoes, and onions--all staples that can find a great second life as delicious leftovers! The other key to this reuben rolls recipe? An easy to use deep fryer! You'll want to heat yours to 375°F for a delicious deep fry. Reuben Roll upgrade tip: Looking for a little extra crisp in these tasty rolls? Add tortilla or wonton strips in the mix for some added crunch.
Taco PinwheelsBy Ginny's TeamThis taco pinwheels recipe was inspired by Gloria G. from Newark, CA. and is a fun twist on a classic party dish. All you need is a blender, a few easy-to-find ingredients, and about fifteen minutes of preparation time. The cheese mixture has a perfect pop of taco seasoning, chilies, and jalapeños, while the tortillas make this appetizer an easy finger food! We love taco pinwheels for Super Bowl watch parties, birthday celebrations, and more.
Pizza TacosBy Ginny's TeamPizza and tacos are both perfect comfort foods; combine them in a big way with these pizza tacos. You just need four main ingredients, a few favorite toppings, and a skillet with a cover to make this delicious dish. Use pepperoni, or use sausage, mushrooms, olives, vegetables or more for toppings--just raid your pantry and vegetable drawer! Another bonus? These pizza tacos only take a few minutes to make, so they're easy to cook whenever your're in the mood for a feel good classic.
Asian Chicken WingsBy Ginny's TeamTry Asian chicken wings in a slow cooker for a delicious yet hands-off Superbowl side. The wide variety of ingredients creates an explosion of flavor, while soy sauce, Sriracha sauce, and sesame seeds gives the recipe a distinctly Asian twist. Instead of worrying about baking or frying, simply add everything to a slow cooker and let the chicken wings soak in flavor for hours. The meat will practically fall off the bone of these Asian chicken wings!
Pumpkin BreadBy Ginny's TeamWe love banana bread and zucchini bread, but fall will always belong to warm, cinnamon-accented homemade pumpkin bread. If you have some fresh pumpkin, we encourage replacing the canned vegetable with the real thing. Feel free to add half a cup of raisins if you have some lying around, but we've found that this homemade pumpkin bread tastes just as delicious without them. You can also take out the nuts to make this recipe even simpler!
