Recipe : Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Depending on your preference, use Gorgonzola or another blue cheese on the pizza.

  • Place a cookie sheet or pizza stone in the oven, then preheat the oven to 500ºF. In a large pan over medium-high heat, slowly caramelize the shallots with the olive oil. Once the shallots are soft and lightly golden, about 10 to 15 minutes, add the chicken. Once the chicken is nearly warmed all the way through, add the hot sauce to the pan and gently stir. Remove from the heat.
  • On a large cutting board or kitchen counter, dust with cornmeal and roll out a pizza dough.
  • Precook the pizza dough by carefully placing it on the preheated pizza stone and stab the pizza dough with a fork quickly, to ensure no bubbles. Bake for four to six minutes until golden.
  • Once golden, remove the pizza stone and pizza from the oven to top with the chicken and hot sauce mixture, grated cheese, and Gorgonzola crumbles. Place the pizza back into the oven and cook until the cheese has completely melted, about five to seven minutes.
  • Enjoy pizza.

Recipe : Cheesy Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Scoop out the inside of your pumpkin, and separate seeds from pulp. Don’t worry if there’s a little pulp left on the seeds when you roast them—it only adds flavor. Just remove the biggest pieces so that the seeds are easy to toss.

In a bowl, toss the seeds with the melted butter, coating thoroughly. Add salt and seasonings.

Spread seeds in one even layer across a greased baking sheet (or you can use a cookie sheet covered in aluminum foil).

Bake for 30 minutes, or until the seeds are golden brown. Stir the seeds every so often while they’re baking, so that they toast evenly.

Recipe : 4th of July Flag Cake

Make the cakes according to the directions. Cool completely.

Wash the berries and dry thoroughly.

With the whisk attachment of a standing mixer, whip together the cream, vanilla, and sugar until soft peaks form.

Transfer half of the whipped cream to a large bowl. Carefully fold in half a pint of the blueberries and a half pint of the raspberries.

Spread the berry whipped cream evenly over the top of one cake.

Place the remaining cake on top of the smooth berry whipped cream. Cover the cake with the remaining plain whipped cream.

In the top left hand quarter, place 50 blueberries in a square (7 across and 7 down, plus one extra stuck in there) and the raspberries in 13 rows across (if you can fit them!). Add sparkling candles and enjoy!

Recipe : Grilled Buffalo Wings

Mix together the cayenne, black pepper, and salt in a small bowl. Sprinkle the mixture all over the chicken wings. Place the wing in the refrigerator until ready to use. (This can be done the night before.)

Melt butter in small saucepan over low heat. Whisk in the rest of the sauce ingredients until combined. Remove from heat and set aside.

Light a chimney 3/4 full of charcoal. When charcoal is fully lit and covered in gray ash, pour coals out and arrange them on one side of the charcoal grate, keeping the other side empty. Place the wings over the cool side of the grill, cover, and cook until skins are lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Move the wings to the hot side of the grill and continue to cook until the skins have crisped, about 2-3 minutes. Remove the wings to a bowl. Pour the sauce over the wings and toss to coat evenly. Remove wings to a plate and serve hot.
