Friday Foodday

Happy Friday lovebugs! Here are my favorite recipes this week.

Molly Bloom
c/o Fogged in Lounge
  • 2 oz Irish whiskey
  • 1/2 oz Cocchi Americano Rosa or sweet vermouth
  • 2 dashes orange bitters
Stir with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Lemon twist.

Sweet Chili Hoisin Glazed Chicken Drumsticks
8-10 chicken drumsticks
1/2 up sweet chili sauce
1/2 cup hoisin sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon sesame oil
3 tablespoons soy sauce
zest and juice of 1 mandarin orange
salt & pepper, to taste
sesame seeds, for garnish
finely chopped parsley, for garnish

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line baking sheet with foil and top with cooling rack. Spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
In small saucepan off the heat, stir sweet chili sauce together with hoisin, garlic, sesame oil, soy sauce, mandarin orange juice and zest, salt and pepper. Dip each piece of chicken into sauce and place onto prepared sheet. Place saucepan over medium heat to caramelize and simmer. Bake chicken 40-50 minutes, basting generously 2-3 more times until completely cooked {165 degrees}. 
Top cooked drumsticks with sesame seeds and parsley and serve.

Citrus Basil Mojito Pops
  • 1 1/4 cups fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 8 tsp raw sugar, or your favorite sweetener (raw honey for Paleo)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 8 fresh mint leaves
  • 8 fresh basil leaves
  • 2 tbsp rum (optional)

Squeeze the orange juice, I used about 2 to get 1 1/4 cups. Combine the remaining ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour about 1/3 cup into each popsicle molds and freeze until solid.
