Now that we have the van, family budget is a bit tight due to the monthly dues of the car loan so I ask my husband if we could switch to Netflix with our entertainment access instead of paying almost a hundred dollars with our satellite television connection. We are actually trying the free trial right now. I just opened my account a couple of days ago and my kids are loving the extra shows that we don't get from our current provider. What I like about it is that, you can enjoy watching your favorite shows for as low as $7.99 a month. With the big holidays coming up, every home's kitchen will be very busy again preparing for the feast.
Netflix would be a perfect avenue to stream while you steam on the kitchen . If you are like me who love to watch cooking shows on TV, you probably know the host of the show "Take Home Chef", Curtis Stone. My daughter and I love watching the show and glad that Netflix has partnered with this famous celebrity chef to make recipes for the holiday.I found a recipe for Sticky Chicken Drumsticks at Curtis Stones webpage and put my own spin to it. Below is the original recipe of the menu and the ingredients I modified for my Sticky Country Pork Ribs.
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup Chinese BBQ sauce (I replaced it with Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce)
1/4 cup honey
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped (I replaced it with Golden Nugget Garlic)
1 tablespoon finely chopped peeled fresh ginger (I used the ginger in the jar)
12 chicken drumsticks (I used 4 country style pork ribs)
2 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
1. Mix the soy sauce, barbecue sauce, honey, garlic, and ginger in a resalable storage bag to blend (I used a pyrex bowl with mine). Add the chicken, add the chicken, seal the bag, and toss to coat with the sauce. Refrigerate for at least one hour but preferably overnight.
2. Position an oven rock 8-10 inches from the heat source and preheat the broiler.
3. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with heavy-duty foil. Transfer the drumsticks (ribs) and marinade to the prepared baking sheet and broil, turning the drumstick (ribs) occasionally and watching them closely for 25 minutes (I cooked my ribs for an hour), or until the chicken is cooked through and the marinade has glazed it is coked through and the marinade glazes the chicken (ribs)
4. Sprinkle the sesame seeds over the chicken and serve (I did not put sesame on my ribs)..
It was my first time using the broiler of our oven and I am glad that it turned out perfectly and so delicious, thanks to Curtis Stone's recipe. We had a really nice dinner tonight and I am so surprised that a little bit of ginger in a marinade can do a big difference in a dish.
I would definitely be enjoying the holiday with Netflix. If you want to add some spice to your home cooking for the upcoming holiday, try Netflix for a month and see how it could add some flare to the family's holiday get together. My kids love the Home Alone series so we will definitely watch that through Netflix if it's available there.
