I love love love lobster. I'm so excited to share this recipe with y'all because if you're anything like me you love lobster, but don't like that it's always the most expensive item on the restaurant menu. It's a great recipe to feel comfortable making because not only is it miles cheaper to buy it and prepare it yourself, but it also will impress whoever you're cooking for. Win, win! I'm also excited to share this recipe because I think the idea of cooking lobster can be a little intimidating, I know I felt that way, and I'm happy to report it is so easy and you've totally got this! So long as lobster is in season that is, typically summer time is when you can find the tails easily at your grocery store, so just check that your store is currently carrying lobster tails before planning your dinner!
If you've never had beer can chicken I'm just going to say it right now. You. are. missing. out. Cooking the chicken whole allows all of the juices to stay in and keep the meat really tender. Adding the can of beer inside allows carbonation and steaming to hydrate the chicken from the inside out. You can season it and add other flavoring to the beer can to infuse the chicken and really make the flavoring your own. Point being this is really darn delicious ... and good news is it's easier than it looks to cook and I will walk you through it step by step!
Spaghetti squash is one of the online crazes when it comes to healthy alternative recipes and it's not hard to understand why. I mean it's a vegetable that literally falls apart into the shape of spaghetti noodles. Sure it's not as soft and tasty as pasta, but you can toss it with any of your favorite pasta sauces and combinations for a much healthier alternative! Baking the squash is the quickest way to get it cooked which is how I made it here. The texture is still a little crunchy but tastes great none the less. Next I am going to try slow-cooking it to see if I can get a really soft pasta texture to it .... so watch for that post! But for now let's get to how to bake it!
I've been really wanting to get down how to make really tender chicken. Obviously when it comes to eating healthy chicken breast is a great way to get in your protein, and when done right it is delicious! I finally figured out my new go-to chicken recipe for when I'm not tossing it on the grill.
The secret?! BRINE & BROIL.
I always baked my chicken and it came out way to dry, and when I tried to pan sear it I still never got it as moist as I wanted. This chicken was amazing!!!
