    YANKEE CHEF: Spicy, sweet apple rings are delicious any time

    I remember these spiced apple rings as a child, with my parents using 1 slice placed on top of a little lettuce as garnish for entrees at their restaurants. They are spicy, sweet and so delicious. These apple rings are great as a side for any barbecue, picnic or even as a colorful addition to your holiday table.

    YANKEE CHEF: Put a Hawaiian spin on BBQ chicken

    Literally meaning “turn turn,” Huli Huli Chicken is a mainstay in Hawaii. It is a great way of barbecuing chicken without burning it because you are turning it every few minutes. Think it will come out tough? Think again! Tender and moist, even without the skin, this recipe is a must have in the summer months.
