The apples are a perfect addition to a salad as it is packed with a sweet, fiber filled crunch to the dish. The best part is the dish takes only a few minutes to perpare.
The State fair up here in Minnesota is a serious deal around here. You can get 100's of different dishes and everything under the sun deep fried for your enjoyment. Unfortunately this year we will have to be missing is due to the status of the world and other things. This state-fair funnel cake is a simple little dish that is fun for both and kids to make. The batter is only a few ingredients, almost all are staples in everyone's kitchen and they fry up within minutes. My daughter loves watching them fry and puff up into a fun web design then drenching them in powder sugar and other sweet tasty toppings.

One of the best appetizers are crab cakes. They are extremely easy to make and always have the appearance of being a high end appetizer, at least in landlocked Minnesota. The chunks of lump crab meat and the crisp outer crust make a great summer dish. These Jalapeno crab cakes are extremely flavorful and a little bit spicy, however these will make a great impression on your friends and family. Serve it a few lemon wedges and sour cream to help mellow out the spiciness.

As the season for peaches is in full swing and hot outside, it is the perfect time for some cool and refreshing peach salsa. This fresh peach salsa is simple to make, only taking about 15 minutes to prepare. I like that peach salsa is a little more sweet from the ripe peaches and plus it is a bit less acidic than a regular tomato salsa. Not only is it delicious as an appetizer with tortilla chips or it is also really good as a topping for chicken, fish and pork.
Looking for a quick and east dinner that is perfect for any night, this chicken dish might be up your alley. In this honey glazed chicken, the chicken is marinated quickly packing it with a fist layer of flavor then roasted and based with a honey whiskey glaze that sticks and coats the chicken. The skin on the chicken helps hold in the juices and keeps the chicken moist and get perfectly golden brown and crisp in the quick 30 minute cook time.
In a medium bowl, whisk the soy sauce with the whiskey, honey, ginger, black pepper, sesame oil and cinnamon. Place the chicken pieces in a zip top bag and pour the marinade over the chicken and press excess air out of the bag. Seal tightly and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hours.
In a small bowl, combine the honey, lime juice, whiskey, soy sauce, pepper flakes, cilantro and brown sugar; stir until the sugar is dissolved.
Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil. Arrange the chicken on the baking sheet, skin side up and brush with the glaze.
Roast the chicken in a 350°F oven for about 30 minutes, until cooked through and 165°F internal. Baste the chicken with the glaze every 10 minutes or so. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes then serve.
