Oven Dried Apple Rings

I love fall here in the Northwest!! Being close to so many farms we are able to get some great deals on fall fruits, including local apples! I love to make Apple Rings  with apples from the local farms. Paying for apple rings in the store is expensive but its a frugal and easy treat to make at home!  I have sent these to work with John and he loves them!

Slow Cooker Honey Sriracha Barbecue Chicken Wings

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of CHA! by Texas Pete for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

My Husband loves CHA! by Texas Pete Sriracha Sauce! I mean seriously LOVES it!

When I told him I needed to make a recipe with CHA! by Texas Pete he got so excited. Thus ensuing about 2 weeks of debate about what recipe we should make.

We went from crazy wacky recipes to recipes that actually sounded feasible. I can’t even begin to tell you all of the crazy things John thought I should attempt to make. They are just that crazy.

Thankfully we both agreed on Slow Cooker Honey Sriracha Barbecue Chicken Wings for the recipe. I wanted to make a recipe that was perfect for football season. An appetizer that everyone would love and that used my favorite cooking utensil the slow cooker.

These Slow Cooker Honey Sriracha Barbecue Chicken Wings made with CHA! by Texas Pete turned out fantastic.

You can make them as spicy as you like them. John loves spice so I went a bit heavy handed with the CHA! by Texas Pete but you can easily lower the amount if you like a milder spice.

Creamy Spinach Artichoke Dip

I made this dip for a barbecue potluck we were going to and it was a hit! Every time I looked there were people enjoying bites of the Creamy Spinach Artichoke Dip.

One thing I would recommend is bringing a lot of bread slices. I only brought one baguette worth of bread slices and we ran out. Everyone improvised and used chips and a spoon to enjoy the dip….
