Sriracha Cauliflower Bites Recipe

Sriracha Cauliflower Bites

Sriracha Cauliflower Bites Recipe: One word that describes these spicy little nuggets…addicting. Seriously, we couldn’t stop eating them.

A friend recently posted a recipe for Spicy Buffalo Cauliflower Bites and I knew I need to try them. That recipe called for Franks Hot Sauce. My house is all about Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce.

Ingredients

Ingredients:

1 large head of cauliflower (break into florets)
1 cup water
1 cup flour
1 tbls. garlic powder
1/2 cup Sriracha Sauce
1 tbsp unsalted butter (melted)

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. You will need a large baking sheet. Even if you use a non-stick pan you should still lightly spray with cooking oil.

Batter

In a medium size bowl combine flour, garlic powder and water. Whisk until completely mixed together.

Place you florets in the flour mixture and coat thoroughly. Once coated place on baking sheet and cook for 20 minutes.

Cauliflower

In a small bowl combine the melted butter and Sriracha sauce together.

Sriracha Sauce

At the 20 minutes mark pour the hot sauce mixture over the cauliflower. I used a basting brush and brushed the hot sauce on. I did this so that I could make some that would be less spicy for my daughter. Cook for an additional 5 minutes.

Cauliflower Baked

These are crazy good! We served them with celery, blue cheese dressing and ranch dressing. We can’t wait to make them as an appetizer for when we have friends over.

We are looking for more cauliflower recipes. If you have a good one you think we should try please let us know in the comments below.

The recipe we found didn’t call for putting them in the refrigerator, but we put them in and think they taste better cold.

I would say that eating one is all you need. The sweetness from the banana and dark chocolate really feels like you are indulging.

Our batch made 20 cookies.

How to Fix GoPro Hero 3 If It Won’t Turn On

GoPro Hero 3 Battery Charge Fix

This morning we had planned on doing a review video with our GoPro Hero 3 until we went to charge it and there was no red light for the charge. We completely switched gears and ended up doing a hack video for our GoPro Hero 3.

No matter what we did we couldn’t get a charge. We turned to our good friend Google to find a quick fix and it worked. Check out our how-to video below.

Do you have something that just up and stopped working? Let us know below and we will try and help you find a quick fix.

Ribeye Salad Weve Tried It

Ribeye Steak Salad Recipe

Ribeye Salad Weve Tried It

When it comes to steaks, a nice thick ribeye would be my steak of choice. Words can’t express how delicious and satisfying this salad was.

Ingredients:

Large Bag of Fresh Spinach
2 Ripe Avocados (slice into thin strips)
1 Small Red Onion (thinly sliced)
1 Container of Cherry Tomatoes (quartered)
Crumble Blue Cheese
1 Small Bag Frozen Sweet Corn
2 Ribeye Steaks

Salad Ingredients

You will need two cast iron skillets. In the first skillet turn heat to medium high. Pour your frozen sweet corn in a small bowl and lightly coat with grape seed oil and sea salt. Once you cast iron pan is hot pour in corn. Let it cook through and get golden to get that roasting effect. If it was summer we would put a couple cobs of corn right on the grill to roast.

Sweet Corn

In second cast iron skillet turn on high heat to get the pan very hot. Lightly coat your ribeyes with grape seed oil and seasonings and place in hot skillet. We seared our steaks for 3 minutes on each side and then took them out of the pan to rest for 5 minutes before slicing. We enjoy medium-rare.

Slice avocados, red onions and cherry tomatoes. Wash and dry your spinach leaves. Go ahead and get your plates set-up. Layer whatever way you want. You can get them assembled and add your steak once done.

We used crumbled blue cheese for our dressing. If you wish to use a dressing you will only need to drizzle a small amount, this salad is packed with big flavors.

We hope you enjoy this as much as we did. Very satisfying – eating healthy is fun!

Crochet Washcloth Weve Tried It

How to Crochet a Cotton Washcloth Video

Crochet Washcloth Weve Tried It

Our latest crocheting project is 100% cotton washcloths that are super easy to make. We have already started making gifts for next Christmas.

You will need 100% cotton yarn – we used Peaches & Creme brand, an I hook 5.00 mm, scissors and a yarn needle. For our washcloths we wanted them a bit longer so we went with 22 rows. You are free to make them as short or long as you would like.

Have fun and if you decided to crochet a washcloth please take a photo and post it on Weve Tried It Facebook page.

Don’t forget to share this video with your crocheting friends!

Chicken Fried Chicken Recipe

Chicken Fried Chicken Recipe

Chicken Fried Chicken Recipe

When I think of comfort food, chicken fried chicken is right at the top of my list. We served ours with pan gravy, mashed potatoes and green beans. Perfection!

We found the recipe on The Two Bite Club blog but switched it up a bit since they were only serving two. We hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did.

Ingredients:

5 large chicken breasts
salt and pepper
2 cups flour
1/2 cup flour for the gravy
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 egg
1 cup milk plus
2 cups milk for the gravy
canola oil for frying

Pound out your chicken breasts between two pieces of saran wrap with a meat tenderizer until they are about 1/4 inch thick. Season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper.

Pounding out Chicken

In a bowl combine flour, garlic powder, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper and cayenne pepper. In a second bowl combine the milk and egg.  Beat the egg with a fork or whisk until it’s completely mixed with the milk.

Chicken batter

Dip your chicken into the wet mixture, then the dry mixture, and repeat again with the wet mixture then the dry mixture.  The pieces should be dipped four times in each mixture.

Heat the canola oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat.  Use enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan, but not completely cover the chicken once added.  Be sure it’s hot before adding the chicken.  Fry the chicken in batches for about 4 minutes per side.  When you flip it, the coating should be golden and crispy.

Chicken Fried Chicken

The internal temperature of the chicken should be 165°. Once chicken is done, pour off the oil into a measuring cup. Keep as many of the brown chicken bits in the pan as you can.  Put 1/4 cup of the oil back into the pan and add 1/3 cup flour, whisking to make a roux.  Continue whisking the oil/flour mixture, scraping the brown bits up and continue cooking until the roux is a nice golden brown color.

Chicken Gravy

Slowly adding the milk into the roux, whisk constantly until all of the milk has been combined.  You can add additional milk if needed until the gravy is the consistency that you like.  Then season using lots of pepper and salt to taste. If you don’t add enough salt and pepper your gravy will be extremely bland.

We served our chicken fried chicken with mashed potatoes and green beans. If you have a recipe that you would like us to try please comment below.
