A note about serious food allergies

"Sweet" and "onion" might not naturally go together in your head, but what is life without learning something new? In this case, it’s a sweet onion jam, which melds with the deep demi and rich butter to form a sauce that goes with the chicken… naturally. And speaking of things going together, bacon and cheese in these corn muffins? They go together like sweet and onion. See, we brought it all back together.
