Peach and pistachios are a great trending pair that are showing up in everything from yogurt, to ice cream sundaes.   An arugula salad with fresh peaches and lightly salted pistachio sounds like a great, and refreshing way to celebrate the arrival of summer.

Spicy Chocolate Chicken

It’s no secret that spicy flavors go well with chicken and spicy chocolate is a popular trend. Have you ever had all three together?  This dish is similar to a smothered chicken and is made with bacon, carrots, peas, serrano chile and of course chocolate. Why not try something new while dining out that will be sure to give you a kick in your taste buds with mix of flavors.

Blue Cheese and Bacon

Crumbly blue cheese and crunchy bacon are a match made in food heaven! With summer just around the corner one of our favorite ways to enjoy this duo is in a juicy burger. A slightly toasted pretzel bun with all of the fixings accompany a blue cheese and bacon burger perfectly.  Don’t forget the ultimate burger sidekick; fresh fries!

Chicken and Waffles

What’s better than a mix of one of your favorite breakfast foods and crispy fried chicken? This savory and sweet with an extra crunch is a great go to meal at your favorite brunch place. There are many variations of this meal that include chicken strips, chicken pieces like wings and breasts, and even chicken nuggets.
