I tried a new sauce recipe for our 4th of July BBQ and I must say it was very tasty. I made a simple cherry sauce for my husband add to the wings on the grill. Here’s the recipe:
Marinate the wings in the seasonings or marinade of your choice. Refrigerate until ready for grilling.
Prep grill. When ready, lay wings evenly and cover.
In a medium sauce pan, Add:
About 20-25 Whole Cherries (Pull all stems)
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Pomegranate Juice (*Orange Juice will work as well)
1 teaspoon Cornstarch
Let the ingredients come to boil on medium low heat. Once boiling, stir and turn down to low heat for 8-10 mins. Strain sauce into a heat safe bowl while gently pressing remaining compote with the back of a spoon (whole cherries should be separated or separating from the seeds at this point). When all juice is extracted, discard compote from the strainer. Using a basting brush, brush the wings with the sauce and continue grilling. (This should be done toward the end to avoid any food burning)
Allow glaze to cook on wings for at least 8-10 mins.
Lastly, brush on your BBQ sauce of choice and serve. (We used Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey BBQ Sauce)
This week I decided to make french toast for brunch and add a strawberry topping. In between that is!! Check out the recipe and give it a try.
Makes about 2-4 Slices
*Dice or Cut Strawberries (to your style) and add sugar (I added 1 Tbsp). Set aside.
*Minimum 30 mins – 1 hour for juices to extract
1 Tsp of vanilla
1/4 cup of Milk
1 Tsp Sugar
1 Tsp of Cinnamon
Bread (Artesano was chosen for this recipe)
Combine ingredients except bread in a bowl and whisk. Lightly press/cover bread with the mixture one by one.
Turn Skillet on medium heat and add butter or oil (butter is my preference). Add mixed bread slices to Skillet and fry until golden brown (about 1-2 mins on each side).
Take two slices of the french toast and add the strawberry topping in between each slice of bread.
I dusted the top with powder sugar but whipped cream would be great on top as well. Enjoy!
Located in the historic Grant Park neighborhood is a new Market and it is adorable. I love this concept of a community grocery store and cafe. And the decor has a sleek and fashionable style that is jaw dropping. The best part is the Gather space where breakfast, lunch, dinner and Mimosas are served. The Grant Park Market is what the community needs right now!!

I just have a question? Who’s mother, aunt, or grandmother is in the kitchen cooking up collard greens and frying chicken?? That’s exactly what comes to mind after eating at Maple Street Biscuit Company. My brunch selection was the Garden Bird. This biscuit came equipped with a southern fried chicken breast and topped with collard greens, fried egg, and a dash of hot sauce. The concept is so southern and takes you back to the days when everyone sat around the kitchen table and enjoyed great food and conversation. If you are in the Atlanta area, give Maple Street Biscuit Company a try.
