Sticky Chicken Wings

I love chicken. It is one of the most versitle meats out there. Back in high school and college I used to work at a place that sold buffalo wings. I have actually lost a lot of sensitivity in my fingers from sticking my hands on freshly fried chicken to test if the food was done cooking. Any chance I get to make buffalo wings brings back fond memories of that job. Frankly any chance I get to make wings, grill burgers or hot dogs reminds me of a simpler time where all the money I made went to fun things instead of bills. Ahh to be irresponsible again!

Anyho, I have had these pinned on my pinterest for ages and I finally decided to make them. They were so tastey! I couldnt get enough of them. They had such a concentrated flavor. I even added a bit of seasame seeds to the top of my wings and it made all the difference! I imagine you could use this recipe with bonless skinless chicken breasts too and it would be tastey too! If you are looking to have a fun hands on meal I would reccomend using this recipe!

Angel Dream Cake

Even though I love to bake and make things from scratch there are many times where this bitch ain’t got time for that.  So I have a few go to recipes in my back pocket that are always a big hit when I don’t have a lot of time to fuss around in the kitchen.  They typically include what I call “cheats”.  Instant pudding or box cake mix or recipes that can be made in less than 10 minutes.

This is a cake that I have been making for those last minute events for over 6 years.  Every time I make it I get asked for the recipe!  It’s a perfect dessert for the summer. Every bite is light and fluffy and not filling.  Plus there is fruit so it makes this dessert healthy! I may be guilty of calling this breakfast on occasion. It’s that good!  All the flavor without the guilt!  That’s my kind of quick dessert!

Make this for your next bbq or family gathering and I can promise it will be a hit!
