This book is a beauty. Billy’s blogging style is colorful, approachable and entertaining, and Whip It Up! happily follows suit. You’ll find entire sections on morning buns, tacos, cocktails, popsicles and ice cream (with toppings!), plus over 75 other fast, fun recipes. Whip It Up! offers a variety of flavor profiles, including Mexican, Asian, Italian and American along with plenty of pop culture references and LOL moments sprinkled throughout. I’ve got several recipes bookmarked already. Particularly: Eggs in Srirachatory, Brownie Granola, Buffalo Panzanella, Garlic Musubi Fried Rice, The Whole Enchilada, Brown Butter Walnut Blondies and Bourbon Gingersnap Ice Cream. And like all the tacos.
These Honey Sriracha Chicken Skewers also caught my eye, because of their simple ingredient list and preparation. Made with just 6 ingredients (chicken, honey, rice wine vinegar, Sriracha, salt and pepper), this grilled chicken is so darn tasty. The easy honey-Sriracha sauce flavors the chicken in two ways: before cooking as a marinade and during cooking as a glaze. As the skewers sit above a hot flame, the honey in the sauce blackens, providing crunchy hits of sweet char. Soooooo good! Continue reading for the recipe, plus a fun way to Switch It Up!
