Slow Cooker Texas Smoked BrisketDelicious and tender smoked brisket is a hard thing to come by when you don’t have hours to tend to a smoker. Nothing beats the smoke-filled flavor you get in every bite, so tender and comforting you feel like you could just melt away. I am thrilled to bring you my favorite, unbelievably simple and ridiculously tasty, slow cooker brisket. You might not be smoking it over wood chips all day, but you’ll still taste that smoke flavor.
Pulled Pork Flatbread with Mango Chutney
This is officially my new favorite way to devour pulled pork. I’m serious, I can’t even begin to convey how much I love this flatbread. All of the layers of flavors on top of a perfectly crisp flatbread makes this dish a must have for anyone who loves pulled pork.
Sriracha Lime Baked Chicken Wings
It's March and that means one thing in my foodie-obsessed brain - March Madness parties for days. That's right, that means chips and dip, guacamole, sliders, jalapeño poppers and, most importantly, crispy sticky chicken wings. Sriracha Lime Baked Chicken Wings, to be exact.
If you ever have a snack attack, March Madness-related or not, your next go-to recipe absolutely has to be these wings. They are baked to crispy perfection in the oven, and the sticky spicy and tangy glaze makes them positively finger-licking good. You'll need the wet wipes for these, folks.
The Sriracha and lime juice make this super simple glaze full of flavor that you simply can't find anywhere else. No need to go out for chicken wing perfection - time to stay in with your friends and family watching the next March madness game, or just enjoying a leisurely spring afternoon with a couple of hearty beers.
INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt 5 Tbsp unsalted butter. Once melted, whisk in 1 Tbsp flour and brown for approximately 1 minutes. Add in the hoisin sauce, Sriracha, soy sauce and lime juice, stirring to combine. The mixture should become nice and thick pretty quickly, in less than a minute. In a large bowl, combine the chicken wings, 2 Tbsp melted butter, vegetable oil, salt and pepper. Toss to coat the wings evenly.
Add the wings in an even layer to the lined baking sheet.
Brush the wings with a layer of glaze. Bake the wings for 25 minutes, turning them over halfway through and adding another coat of glaze. After 25 minutes are up, brush the wings with a final layer of glaze and broil for 4 to 5 minutes until crispy. Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro and serve immediately.

Fried Bacon Mac n Cheese Bites
With the playoffs all wrapped up, that only means one thing. Time to get ready for the SUPER BOWL!
Since this year is the big number 50 for the Super Bowl, I'm going ALL out with the Super Bowl spread. Instead of the typical chips and dip, I'm opting to bring in the big guns with these golden, delicious fried bacon mac n cheese bites. They are crispy on the outside and warm, cheesy and bacon-packed on the inside.
The best part of this recipe is that you can simply use a few cups of leftover mac and cheese to make it! No need to let that mac and cheese sit lonely in the fridge anymore, you now have the best ever round two recipe for it that comes together in minutes.
No one will be able to step themselves at one, so be sure to triple this recipe if you've got a lot of hungry people headed your way on game day.
INSTRUCTIONS: In a medium bowl, mix together the mac and cheese and diced bacon. Form small balls (either one or two bite depending on your preference) out of the mac and cheese mixture and add them to a flat baking sheet. Once you have formed the balls (make sure you press them together tightly), cover with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 2 to 3 hours.
In a small bowl, beat the eggs. In another small bowl, combine the breadcrumbs and flour; season the coating with salt, pepper and cayenne. In a heavy bottomed saucepan, heat 3 to 4 inches of canola oil over medium-high heat. Working in small batches of 3 to 4, dredge the mac and cheese balls in the egg, then in the breadcrumb mixture. Add the the hot oil and fry until golden brown and hot in the center, approximately 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from the oil and drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Sprinkle with salt and repeat until all the mac and cheese balls are fried. Serve immediately.

BBQ Ranch Chopped Salad
A salad?! On Sauce + Style?! I know it's a bit shocking to see something on the healthy side pop up here, but being on a teeny tiny cleanse inspired me to up my salad game. With bacon of course.
Normally I am NOT a salad person (as in I avoid it at all costs), but when a salad combines all my favorite things, I'll change my stance on it momentarily. This BBQ Ranch Chopped Salad is the perfect example of what'll get me in a salad-eating mood. Yes, this salad is loaded up with some healthy veggies, but there's also bacon and a BBQ ranch dressing that is going to blow your freaking mind.
Seriously, this salad is so good you'll actually find yourself CRAVING it. So wrong, it's gotta be right ;) am I right?

BBQ Chicken Avocado Flatbreads
Welcome to 2017 piggy peeps! I don't know about you but I am not ready to get back into the swing of things to kick off the New Year. It feels like there are 5 million to-do's on my list and I am barely making a dent in them a few days into the new year... One thing that's falling off my radar? Dinner. I am struggling with pumping out tasty meals without spending wayyyyy too much time on them. Since I have too much to do at work, I am starting to rely on meals of popcorn and soda - NOT how I wanted to start the year.
Instead, I'm pulling out my Pig of the Month BBQ Shredded Chicken and I'm making something more than just a sandwich with it. These flatbreads are one of the easiest meals EVER and there's no one that can resist them, I don't care how picky of an eater they are. The fluffy naan with BBQ sauce, chicken and avocado is the best base for any pizza. Throw in the bite of some red onion and salty cheese and holy wow, this pizza is one the entire family will be begging you to make on a regular basis. Not to mention it's pretty dang healthy in terms of pizza, so you can feel ok about sticking to those New Year resolutions ;)
INSTRUCTIONS: Place naan on a lined baking sheet.
Spread each with half of the BBQ sauce.
Top with chicken, red onion and cheese.
Place under broiler set to high for approximately 2 to 3 minutes, or until the cheese melts.
Remove from oven, top with avocado, cilantro and a sprinkle of queso fresco. Serve.
