It’s crockpot season! Well it is still in the 80s where I live, but I consider it crockpot season pretty much all year long. When I asked what type of recipes you wanted to see more of on Plaid and Paleo, the resounding answer was crockpot/slow cooker meals! I was so happy to hear this response because I love my crockpot. This Crockpot Sweet and Spicy Chicken is such an easy and delicious recipe! With only a few ingredient this Crockpot Sweet and Spicy Chicken comes together in the crockpot in just a few short hours. I like pairing it with roasted broccoli or Brussels sprouts.
A few weekends ago I took a girls’ trip to Dallas. The last time I was there I ate at HG Sply Co, and I knew I had to eat there again! We started off the meal with the sweet & spicy short rib appetizer. The short ribs were so good with the perfect amount of spice that I ended up ordering the short rib main. This giant short rib was paired with a beet and sweet potato hash along with charred cabbage. Since my last visit, I had been dying to come back and try HG Sply’s signature dessert. It is a giant chocolate kettle bell that is presented at the table then drizzled with hot caramel sauce. The sauce melts the chocolate to reveal passion fruit cheesecake and almond milk ice cream! I love HG Sply Co because they are very accommodating to different dietary needs and paleo friendly. My other favorite meal was brunch at Origins Kitchen + Bar. I absolutely loved this place! I started my meal off with a bulletproof coffee. I ordered the seasonal hash bowl which was filled with bacon, sweet potato, pear, currents, cranberries, toasted pumpkin seeds and topped with two perfectly poached eggs. So good! I also ordered the paleo pancake which was okay but totally upstaged by the hash bowl. Until next time, I will be dreaming about all the yummy food I ate in Dallas!
