    As a Buffalo gal, I’m so excited you used Frank’s Red Hot Sauce! My husband puts it on his morning cereal, he thinks it’s that good! And I’ve read that green beans are one of the top foods for diabetics! Yay. As the Home Depot commercials say, “let’s do this”

    Do you have a suggestion for something other than siracha? I am not on the siracha band wagon at all or any hot sauce.

    I love the idea of using green beans, but my boyfriend won’t go near them. Maybe I’ll try this glaze with broccoli since I know I’m gonna need this in my life!
