Sweeten your summer with Honey
I just love honey! From the bees, to the pollen, to the hives, to the wax and most especially the honey – my all time favorite sweetener.
When I was asked to review Golden Blossom Honey, on A Delightsome Life I was delighted!
Golden Blossom Honey in its signature gold and green label has been trusted by consumers in the United States for over 80 years! Family owned, Golden Blossom Honey is made entirely by honeybees with a signature patented blend of honey from three flowers – the extra-white clover, sage buckwheat and orange blossom giving the honey its distinctive flavor. Honey is a natural sugar and easier to digest, as well as sulfate-, sulfite- and gluten-free, it can make any dessert all the more sweeter!
I tried this honey in two recipes Honey-Pecan Glazed Chicken and Cream Cheese Coffee Cake.
My family thoroughly enjoyed this sweet-inspired meal.

1 whole chicken, cut up
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup honey

1/2 cup crushed pecans
1. Salt and pepper the cut-up chicken placing in a roasting pan and baking at 350 until lightly browned about 45 minutes.
2. Make the glaze. Combine the honey with the melted butter. brush onto the tops of the chicken pieces and broil for a couple of minutes until bubbling. Remove and apply glaze one more time topping with crushed pecans. Return to broiler and toast lightly. Serve.
