Chicken Wings for the Soul!

We are back! Main course number 2 for the Fourth of July feast–that passed. Yes, I know but I have been behind so bear with me. I need to catch up and put all this good stuff out there so you can salivate and drool and run to the kitchen to make it. I rarely eat chicken wings but when I get a craving for them, I tend to make good on that craving. Often I use a recipe and then can’t seem to find it again, which is frustrating because it was so good when I made it. I said, never mind, I shall find an equally good recipe for wing sauce and I went for a simple one. I don’t know about you but I looove Frank’s red hot sauce so much I will put it on anything, well…if I could. The recipe I found was called the ‘Best Buffalo Wing Sauce’ so I used it. So very simple and goood.

Recipe taken from Food.com  INGREDIENTS: 1/2 cup of butter 1 cup Frank’s red hot sauce 2 tsp cayenne DIRECTIONS:

Bring ingredients to a boil and toss in your choice of meat (wings, shrimp etc–) to coat.

Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture as I was excited about cooking all this good stuff and friends were over. You know, you get carried away..ahem..and I had had some bourbon…

I am not a huge fan of the mayonnaise blue cheese dip so I went searching for something different and I found this garlic feta dip recipe, which uses sour cream and yogurt. It sounded interesting and not blue cheesy. Don’t get me wrong, I love blue cheese but the way I eat it is on bread with butter..panini style 🙂 You can serve this with crackers or, hey, potato salad. Although, I prefer potato salad with just a light dressing.

Recipe taken from allrecipes.com Picture above 😉 INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese

  • 1/2 cup sour cream

  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt

  • 2 cloves garlic, peele

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Combine the feta cheese, sour cream, yogurt and garlic in the container of a food processor or blender. Pulse briefly until garlic is minced. Spoon into a serving dish, and season with salt and pepper.

Well, that concludes the savory part of the feast. Next up will be the ‘censored’ brownies. So good, you can’t help but close your eyes when you take a bite..it’s just too beautiful for words. Thinking about them just..mmmm..goodness.
