The Daily Meal's Tyson Crispy Strips Recipe Contest...Featuring Buffalo Ranch Puffs with Blue Cheese-Ranch Dipping Sauce

I'm a member of The Daily Meal's Culinary Content Network, a great group of talented food bloggers. They're having a fun recipe contest this week featuring Tyson Crispy Chicken Breast Strips, which are made with 100% all natural ingredients and are fully cooked for easy preparation. These yummy chicken strips bake up crisp, and they're perfect for a meal or as part of a fun party spread. With the Super Bowl coming up this weekend, I wanted to create a spicy dish for our game-day feast. My Buffalo Ranch Puffs with Blue Cheese-Ranch Dipping Sauce are indeed spicy...and totally dude-approved! Even better? They're super simple to make! 

While the crescent-wrapped chicken strips bake to a golden-brown in the oven, you've got a pocket of time to make the addictive dipping sauce. Some people like to dip their wings in ranch...and some prefer blue cheese. My dipping sauce combines both flavors into one delicious sauce, then adds chopped celery and green onions for extra texture and flavor. To really up the spice factor, I decided to brush ranch-infused hot wing sauce on each puff before baking, and I included hot sauce in the dipping sauce too.

Wendy's Favorite Things for January

It's time once again for my monthly Wendy's Favorite Things feature...where I share eight food items or kitchen tools that I've been using in my kitchen and absolutely love. I've got some great suggestions to share with you let's get started!

Add caption
(1) Gourmet Garden Lightly Dried Herbs & Spices. Gourmet Garden is known for its tubes of organic herbs and spices. I love using them in my kitchen, because it's so handy to squeeze the tube to add flavor to my recipes. Gourmet Garden's newest product is a line of stackable herbs and spices that are lightly dried. Unlike their tube products, these herbs and spices can be sprinkled on top of a finished product -- but I don't have to do the chopping! The line includes parsley, basil, cilantro, ginger, and chile pepper. They're easy to store in the fridge, because the containers lock together and stack. So far, I've used the cilantro and ginger. It's so easy to grab a pinch and sprinkle on top of whatever you're making. They last for 4 weeks in the fridge too! To find a store near you that carries this new line, visit the Gourmet Gardens online store locator.

(2) Woats Oat Snack. Woats is a Texas company that makes one of my favorite new snacks. If you love oatmeal cookies, but want a snack you can feel better about? Woats is perfect for you! Woats comes in three yummy flavors: Peanut Butter Graham Slam, Cookies 'n' Dreams, and Nuts About Cherries. Lightly sweet Woats are great sprinkled on top of Greek yogurt for breakfast, but they're equally good straight out of the bag for an after-work pick-me-up. All of the flavors are great, but I'm especially partial to the Peanut Butter Graham Slam. It contains all-natural peanut butter, crisp graham crackers and crunchy butter toffee peanuts. Woats is available at select retailers around the country, but you can also order it online at their website.

(3) Saucy Everything Spicy Mayo. This addictive sauce is from Intensity Academy, and boy is is good! Mayo is a very popular condiment here in the South, so I know good mayo when I taste it. Saucy Everything Spicy Mayo is creamy, slightly sweet, and gently spicy. It comes in a handy squeeze bottle, making it easy to use as a topping on a variety of foods. I am officially in love with this versatile sauce. So far, I've had it on a chicken sandwich and on a burger. It worked equally well with both! I'll be sharing a fun recipe featuring this product very soon, so be on the lookout. Saucy Everything Spicy Mayo can be purchased direct from Intensity Academy's website. It's also available at select locations in Florida.

(4) NatureSweet Cherub Tomatoes. NatureSweet is based here in San Antonio, but I'd adore these bite-sized grape tomatoes even if they weren't. Their flavor is sweet, and the packaging makes them convenient for easy snacking. They come in a round container with a peel-back lid on top. This makes it easy to grab 3-4 of them for a quick snack. -- one you don't have to feel guilty about enjoying! Even if you enjoyed half of the container, it would only cost you 50 calories and 1 gram of fat! I also love to halve Cherubs lengthwise for adding to salads or pasta -- I find them to be very versatile. The NatureSweet website offers a helpful store locator, as well as many delicious recipes featuring Cherubs.

Celebrating Oktoberfest at San Antonio's Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort & Spa

Photo provided by Hyatt Regency
We recently enjoyed a relaxing overnight stay at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort & Spa here in San Antonio. This amazing resort is located less than 15 minutes from our home, but it felt like the cares of the real world were literally "a world away" once we stepped onto the 300-acre property. This resort offers so much to see and do, and it's perfect for a weekend getaway -- whether you're a family, a couple, or even a group of girlfriends looking for a spa retreat. This AAA Four-Diamond resort has everything you could want right onsite, allowing you to simply drop your car with the valet and never leave during your stay. Located at the Hyatt is a 27-hole golf course, restaurants, a huge pool and water park area, and the Wildflower Spa. However, if you're also looking for some offsite fun nearby? You're in luck -- SeaWorld San Antonio is located less than 2 miles away! 

The first thing we noticed when we dropped our car with the valet and walked inside the main building is how relaxed the atmosphere is. The Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort is definitely upscale -- but it has a relaxed, rustic vibe. Check in was quick and easy, and we were on our way to our spacious suite. The suite featured a spacious living room/dining room area with ranch-themed decor, a large bathroom, and a bedroom area featuring a King bed and flatscreen television. The art that adorned the walls of our suite shared information about the property's rich history as a working ranch!
We visited during the resort's Oktoberfest celebration, so we were able to enjoy a fun party featuring German food and music...and beer, of course! The Hyatt's outdoor Oktoberfest celebration was located a short walk from our room. We enjoyed some cool breezes and admired the resort's perfectly maintained grounds during our walk. We arrived and quickly found seats in the communal outdoor dining area. There was a German band playing lively music, and we had our choice of a beer or cocktail to pair with a buffet of tasty German food. We enjoyed visiting with our fellow diners and watching people dance to the polka music coming from the band while we ate our dinner. 
Highlights of the delicious buffet of German food included slow-simmered beef sauerbraten over buttered egg noodles, a boldly flavored warm German potato salad, and a variety of steamed brats and other sausages. The food was expertly prepared and hearty -- perfect Fall food. We also enjoyed a duo of desserts to choose from: German chocolate cake and cobbler. Talk about a perfect dessert combo for a Texas Oktoberfest celebration!
There was a nice selection of Oktoberfest beers to choose from, both Texas brews and imported German beers. I especially liked that the beers were served in fun boot-shaped glasses to go with the German-Texas celebration theme. For my Oktoberfest libation, I selected Karbach Oktoberfest. It was an easy-to-drink Bavarian Marzen with a smooth finish. Michael went with the Hacker Pschorr Munich Gold from Germany. It had a stronger flavor profile than my beer, with a slightly bitter finish. It paired very nicely with our German sausages...and some German polka music! 
Before we knew it, the Sun was starting to set. We decided to make our way over to the Hyatt's fire pit to enjoy a smores nightcap. Needless to say, the smores were a popular attraction for the resort's guests -- of all ages. I had a great time making the perfectly toasted marshmallow for my smore. Something about gooey marshmallows and melted chocolate seems perfectly fitting on a cool Fall evening!

NatureSweet SunBursts™ MVP Promotion...Featuring Cherubic Avocado Mousse Bites

I've got some exciting news to share today! NatureSweet® Tomatoes is kicking off the New Year with the return of its popular NatureSweet SunBursts™ MVP promotion. Designed to help busy foodies plan the perfect game day party, NatureSweet is giving away one daily $200 prize and one weekly $1,000 prize between now and February 1 -- for a total of $6,800!! Along with the cash prizes, NatureSweet has created the ultimate MVP Party Playbook.

NatureSweet is based right here in San Antonio, and they're the leading grower of premium fresh tomatoes in the U.S. They also taste really great too! I wasn't able to locate SunBursts™ when I went grocery shopping last weekend, but I did manage to get my hands on some of their deliciously sweet Cherubs grape tomatoes to create my Cherubic Avocado Mousse Bites. If you're looking for a veg-friendly game day snack for the Super Bowl, look no further! These fun appetizers are ready to serve in about 15 minutes and feature creamy lime-infused avocado mousse that's piped into scoop-shaped tortilla chips. Each bite is topped with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese, halved Cherub tomatoes, and flakes of coarse sea salt. I love guacamole as much as the next gal, but these little bites are definitely MVP caliber!

Pairing Casa Noble Tequila with The Cheeses of Europe...Featuring My Citrus Tequila Smash Cocktail #TequilaFromage

Photograph provided by Casa Noble
Today is National Cheese Lovers Day, a day set aside to celebrate the greatness of cheese. I'm definitely a cheese lover -- it's one of my favorite cooking ingredients, and I love creating flavorful and creative cheese boards. I was recently invited to try a new-to-me pairing to celebrate National Cheese Lovers Day: Casa Noble Tequila and The Cheeses of Europe. Tequila may seem like a bit of an odd pairing for cheese at first. However, my tasting experience has made me a believer -- and I think your tastebuds will love the combination of Casa Noble Tequila with flavorful European cheeses too! I received three different Casa Noble tequilas and a sampling of European cheeses specially selected to pair together. I put together a simple, yet elegant cheese board to pair with the trio of Casa Noble tequilas. My European cheese board included sturdy crackers, glazed pecans, and plump red grapes.
I included labeled cards for each of the cheeses so my guests would easily know which cheese paired with which tequila. I provided glasses, and we began our tasting. We started with the mildest cheese, the Mimolette. We then worked our way around the board clockwise, increasing the strength of flavor as we went, until we ended our tasting with the bold Fourme d'Ambert. We paired the tequilas and cheeses as follows:
  • Casa Noble Crystal paired with Mimolette aka Boule de Lille. I created a fun and fruity cocktail with the Crystal, which paired very nicely with the mild Edam-inspired Mimolette.
  • Casa Noble Reposado paired with semi-soft Époisses. The full-bodied oak barrel-aged reposado paired very nicely with the pungent cheese. This cheese definitely has a very distinctive aroma, but the flavor isn't overly assertive. We were pleasantly surprised. 
  • Casa Noble Anejo paired with Fourme d'Ambert. This extra-aged tequila stood up nicely to the flavor of this creamy, mild blue cheese. I'm not normally a fan of blue cheese, but this cheese was super smooth and very nice spread on a sturdy cracker.
  • Bonus cheese: we also received Comte cheese, which we paired with both the Reposado and Anejo tequilas. The Comte is a firm, nutty cheese that reminded us of Swiss cheese. It was very pleasant to eat, especially with the crackers! 
For me, no cheese tasting is complete without a fun cocktail. For this party, I created my Citrus Tequila Smash. It's reminiscent of a margarita, but a bit more fruity thanks to the addition of a generous amount fresh orange juice.

Assembling a Fun and Easy Snackadium Featuring Red Gold Tomatoes #RedGoldGameDay

With the Super Bowl just around the corner, it's time to start planning your game day menu -- because we all know that the game day food is just as important as the game itself! If you want to impress your friends and family, why not make a fun and easy snackadium as the centerpiece of your game day feast? Red Gold recently sent me a selection of their delicious salsas and diced tomatoes with peppers to create a snackadium for their #RedGoldGameDay blogger contest. If you've never heard of a snackadium, it's basically game day snacks assembled to resemble a football stadium. Snackadiums can be large and very elaborate. I have to admit that seeing pictures of these large snackadiums online was a bit intimidating. I set out to create a simple snackadium that anyone can pull together the morning of the big game! We're huge Houston Texans fans, so that was the decorative theme for my snackadium. Feel free to use decor for your favorite team instead.

To make my snackadium, you'll need the following supplies:
  • Football field: a 12 1/4" x 8 1/4" x 1 3/22" disposable aluminum cake pan
  • Stands: Three-tier plastic spice shelf
  • End zone seats: Two Ortega Fiesta Flats taco shells
  • Goal posts: beef stick snacks
  • Team logo and favorite player cutout: thin cardboard and a glue stick
Once you gather all of your materials, it's time to figure out what snacks to serve before you start assembling. For my football field, I selected a trio of dips featuring Red Gold products. The field is homemade guacamole, and the yard lines are sour cream piped on top of the guacamole. The end zones are a duo of easy-to-make dips. One end zone was cream cheese combined with Red Gold spicy chipotle diced tomatoes and sliced green onion. The other end zone was queso dip flavored with Red Gold medium salsa and cooked Mexican chorizo. To complete the field, I made goal posts using beef stick snacks held together with toothpicks. Hint: to ensure they don't collapse, attach the base of each one to a cube of firm cheese with a toothpick before you add the dip to the end zones. 

Hometown Foods #SundaySupper...Featuring Alamo City Breakfast Tacos

For this week's #SundaySupper, we're sharing regional foods from our hometowns. Our hostess is Coleen from The Redhead Baker, and she asked us to share recipes for regional dishes that are popular in our hometown. I currently live in San Antonio, where Tex Mex food is king. I could have shared any number of Tex Mex dishes, but I ultimately decided to share one of my most favorite regional dishes: Alamo City Breakfast Tacos. Breakfast tacos are found all over Texas, but they seem to be especially popular in the San Antonio-Austin area. Imagine all of your favorite breakfast foods wrapped up in a pillowy soft flour tortilla. Now you're starting to understand why breakfast tacos joints are so popular here!

Breakfast tacos can range from simple to fancy. For today's recipe, I opted to share a taco recipe on the fancier end of the scale. My Alamo City Breakfast Tacos feature refried beans, eggs scrambled with tart and spicy Mexican chorizo, fried potatoes, bacon, and cheese. They make a great on-the-go breakfast or lazy weekend brunch. One of these hearty breakfast tacos is perfect for me -- but Michael can easily eat two or three. The best part about breakfast tacos -- other than how great they taste -- is that they're very easy to customize. Simply add or subtract ingredients to make your ideal version of the perfect breakfast taco!

January Foodie Recipe Collection: Big-Flavor Casseroles...One-Dish Wonders for Busy Cooks

Check out Big-Flavor Casseroles -- One-Dish Wonders for Busy Cooks!

by Wendy Wofford-Garcia at

For this month's Foodie Contributor Recipe Collection, I'm focusing on a subject that's very near and dear to my heart: casseroles. There's something very comforting about cooking -- and eating -- a hearty meal that's baked in the oven until bubbly. For me, casseroles bring back memories of my childhood. As an adult, casseroles tend to find their way to my dinner menu on a weekly basis. Casseroles are a busy cook's best friend, because they're a filling and complete meal that's baked in one dish. That means less cleanup after dinner -- and leftovers make a delicious lunch the next day!

Casseroles can get a bad rap from those who consider them too retro or old school for modern cooks...but that definitely doesn't have to be the case! The recipes I'm sharing this month have one thing in common: they all feature robust flavors that will temp your tastebuds and warm your stomachs on a chilly Winter evening. I've got everything from Tex-Mex to pasta bakes...and even a couple of casseroles that can be assembled the night before and baked the next morning for a leisurely weekend brunch. I hope you'll give these flavorful one-dish wonders a try in your own kitchen!

Captivating Casseroles #SundaySupper...Featuring King Ranch Mac and Cheese

This week's #SundaySupper theme is near and dear to my heart: Captivating Casseroles. There's so much to love about casseroles: they're a comforting, complete meal -- perfect for chilly Winter evenings. Our host for this week's event is Alice from A Mama, Baby & Shar-pei in the Kitchen. I grew up eating casseroles, and I still love them today...especially when they're as fun and flavorful as the King Ranch Mac and Cheese I'm sharing today. This is my personal spin on a very popular recipe from Southern Living magazine. This dish is a crazy-good mashup of two Southern favorites: King Ranch casserole and gooey macaroni and cheese. It's a keeper, y'all!

I made a few changes to the original recipe to suit our tastes. I omitted the bell pepper and added several cloves of garlic and chopped cilantro. To echo the tortilla flavor of traditional King Ranch casserole and add a bit of texture, I added a topping of crushed tortilla chips and a sprinkle of green onions. You'll also notice two ingredients that I don't often feature: cream of chicken soup and pasteurized prepared cheese product. These two ingredients are key to the overall flavor and texture of the delicious cheese sauce. This is serious comfort food, folks!

Weekend Gourmet Flashback: The Perfect Game-Day Snack...Creamy Jalapeno-Cheese Sausage Crescent Cups...

Some things just go perfectly together: peanut butter and jelly…peas and carrots…Lennon and McCartney. Here’s one more that any football fan can agree on: game-day and food! Cheering for your favorite team -- especially if they're in the playoffs  -- requires a lot of energy. That means that a spread of tasty food is a necessity. We’re huge…I mean HUGE…Houston Texans fans! They didn't make the playoffs this year, but we're still tuning in to watch all of the football action. As much as I love to cook, I don’t want to miss a big play! Today's Weekend Gourmet Flashback is sharing of my favorite game-day snacks: Creamy Jalapeno-Cheese Sausage Crescent Cups. 

These appetizers are easy to assemble and are bursting with amazing flavor! They're made with refrigerated crescents, which is a huge time saver...and jalapeno-cheese sausages provide lots of spicy flavor. These little babies are wildly popular with everyone who tries I wanted to share them before this weekend's playoff games. A platter of these appetizers is a welcome site -- feel free to make a double batch as they're pretty addictive!

#AD Game-Day Hot Wings Bar...Featuring Diablo Ranch and Cranberry Honey Mustard Dipping Sauces #GameTimeHero #CollectiveBias

This #GameTimeHero shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions expressed are solely mine.   
It's no big secret that we're huge football fans at Casa Garcia...we never miss a big game! I also love to serve a variety of tasty snacks for us to munch on while we cheer on our favorite team. However, I like to keep my game-day menu as stress-free as possible -- I don't want to miss a big play because I'm in the kitchen cooking. Thanks to my convenient neighborhood Walmart Deli, I was able to purchase a Pick 3 Bucket of pre-cooked Tyson deli wings for an easy and fun game-day hot wings bar. I selected three different flavors: the sweet and spicy Boneless General Tso's, crispy Bone-in Hot Wings, and traditional Buffalo Wing flavors. All I had to do was take the ready-to-serve wings home and set them out for everyone to enjoy! Earlier in the day, I had prepared a duo of tasty dipping sauces to pair with our wings: spicy Diablo Ranch and tangy Cranberry Honey Mustard. Making the sauces ahead saved me lots of time and stress. All I had to do before kickoff was pour some sodas and open a couple of bags of chips -- and we were ready to watch some exciting playoff football.
Our team didn't make the playoffs this year, but we certainly enjoyed our game-day wing bar while watching all of the Wild Card playoff action! Let me show you how simple my duo of flavorful dipping sauces is to prepare -- and how I used brightly colored decor to create a festive mood. You'll be ready to throw a game-day hot wing fiesta of your own in time for the next big game. Because the Pick 3 Bucket has convenient inserts that keep each flavor of wings separate, you can simply serve the warm wings directly from the bucket -- no need to dirty a serving platter!

A Lighter New Year #SundaySupper...Featuring Skinny Chicken-Leek Pot Pie

It's a brand new year...and perhaps your 2015 resolution is to eat a bit healthier after an overindulgent holiday season. If so, then #SundaySupper has just what you're looking for! Our host this week is TR from Gluten Free Crumbley. He asked us to share our favorite lightened-up recipes. I've mentioned in here before that being a food blogger can be hazardous to my I'm always looking for ways to reduce fat and calories when I cook. However, I'm not willing to sacrifice flavor in the process! On a chilly evening, a comforting pot pie makes a fabulous dinner -- but the typical pot pie is a fat and calorie bomb. Enter my Skinny Chicken-Leek Pot Pie, which was inspired by a Cooking Light recipe I found online. 

I recently bought some cleaned, sliced leeks at the grocery store, and I wanted to use them in this week's recipe. This Skinny Chicken-Leek Pot Pie tastes creamy and decadent, but there's not a bit of cream to be found! I instead used a bit of flour to make a roux, then I whisked in a mixture of chicken stock and reduced-fat cream cheese. I also used lean chicken breast and made sure to include lots of healthy veggies. My deconstructed take on pot pie is dished into individual serving bowls and topped with a baked round of refrigerated pie crust that's seasoned with herbs and sea salt. No one will ever guess that this pot pie is lower in both fat and's that good!

The Weekend Gourmet Named to the Red Gold Family Table Blog Council!

Happy New Year! To start 2015 on a positive note, I want to officially share that The Weekend Gourmet has been selected by Red Gold Tomatoes as one of 15 bloggers making up the Red Gold Family Table blog council! I honestly can't think of a food company that I'm more excited to be affiliated with. I first met the Reichart family -- who own and operate Red Gold in Indiana -- when I took part in their Taste of the NFL contest during the 2012 Super Bowl week in Indianapolis. Since then, I've continued to work with them on a number of fun recipe promotions. Imagine my excitement when I received an e-mail a few weeks ago asking me to be a part of the Red Gold Family Table blog council!

What does this mean to you as a reader of The Weekend Gourmet? I'll be sharing lots of tasty, family-friendly recipes featuring Red Gold's delicious tomato products. I can honestly say that they're the only brand of canned tomatoes I use in my kitchen! My first official post as part of the Red Gold Family Table is to create a snackadium featuring their salsa and diced tomatoes in time for the Super Bowl. If you've never seen a snackadium, they're a creative way to serve game day snacks that are arranged to resemble a football stadium. Here's an example of a homemade snackadium so you know what Michael and I are  currently in the process of designing together!

As part of the Red Gold Family Table, I'll also be visiting their company headquarters in Indiana during the tomato harvest this Fall...and I'll be doing some live television cooking appearances here in San Antonio. My first cooking segment is scheduled for Friday, February 9th on KABB Fox 29's Daytime at Nine morning show. I'll be showing viewers how to make Red Gold Skinny Lasagna. I can't's to an exciting 2015!!
