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.
Ghost PotatoesBy Ginny's TeamCelebrate Halloween with creamy and cute ghost potatoes. These adorable little treats are perfect for seasonal dinners or family Halloween parties. They're a nutritious treat to offset all that trick-or-treat candy, but have just enough holiday spirit to make kids and adults smile. Our mashed potatoes recipe is nice and creamy, but you can feel free to substitute this recipe with your favorite recipe. Then just add peas for eyes, and you have spooky little ghost potatoes!
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.
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.
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.
Potato Chips in the Deep FryerBy Ginny's TeamEveryone here at the Ginny’s House really likes food. A lot. Even though we may whine a little bit when there is so much food from recipe and product testing, we complain a lot more when there isn't food (especially chocolate) around. We also like testing our products and recipes to make sure they are the best they can possibly be before putting them in our catalog. We also learn how we can describe the items to you so you know exactly what you're getting! Last week was no different. We were testing a new fryer and our Ginny’s Brand Double Deep Fryer to see how the new fryer stacked up, and to learn the benefits of the potentially new fryer we were thinking about for our next catalog. Everyone was lined up at the kitchen counter patiently waiting for whatever Laura was pulling out of the Ginny’s Brand Double Deep Fryer next. The Crab Rangoon, Homemade Potato Chips, and Chicken were all fried to a perfect golden brown in the Ginny’s Brand Double Deep Fryer. We especially liked our new Homemade Potato Chip recipe that Laura made with our Ginny’s Brand Kitchen Assistant!
Crab Rangoon RecipeBy Ginny's TeamLaura, our customer service representative at the Ginny's House, shared her husband's Homemade Crab Rangoon recipe. We have used it a couple of different times to test deep fryers and convection ovens and they are always delicious. They're especially good with sweet and sour sauce. If you can't find a sweet and sour sauce you like, try warming up red pepper jelly for a great, simple substitute! This is one of Laura's family favorites. It's no longer an "ancient Chinese secret," you can now enjoy these any night of the week!
Microwave Baked PotatoBy Ginny's TeamLife-changing tip: “baked potato” does not always have to mean “baked in the oven.” For example, it could mean “baked in the microwave,” which also means “this healthy and delicious microwave baked potato recipe is about as easy as it gets.”
Microwave SmoresBy Ginny's TeamSometimes a campfire is beyond our reach. For example, sometimes it is winter, or we don’t have any wooden furniture that we can break into pieces for firewood. When this happens, we recommend turning to this microwave s’mores recipe. That way, happiness will be within reach in the form of delicious microwave s’mores.
Microwave Macaroni and CheeseBy Ginny's TeamWe don’t mean the microwave macaroni and cheese that comes with those weirdly orange powder packets. We mean delicious (and still easy!) microwave macaroni & cheese with real cheese that melts on your tongue.
Microwave QuesadillaBy Ginny's TeamThe moral of this simple quesadilla recipe: deliciousness in less than 60 seconds is possible. All you need are two tortillas and some shredded cheese to make this delicious quesadilla recipe!
