Honey Sage Tumeric Wings

Phew, so my wedding ended a week ago. Needless to say I still can’t really believe it happened. On the other hand, I’m glad the planning is done! Now I just have a ton of gifts all over the floors, and hopefully after I finish writing out all my Thank You notes, I’ll have time to do more updates here.

This recipe takes a nice twist on typical chicken wings/party food type of thing. I usually like my chicken wings fried plain, but occasionally I like them in soy sauce or some sort of sweet glaze. This recipe uses tumeric – a spice that I really should use more often, with a touch of honey and garnished with some sage. The result is tasty and not too heavy. I may try to grill it next time though.

Give it a whirl!

Meyer Lemon Marmalade Three Ways

I ordered $30 worth of Meyer lemons from the Lemon Ladies Orchard in California. Once I had a list of recipes lined up, I wished I spent $50 instead. The first thing was marmalade. I enjoy marmalade enough that I would eat it with a spoon….but since I’m scared of eating an entire jar in…

Dinner for Two: Buttermilk-Brined Cornish Hens

Happy Birthday to me! I had been banned from baking any desserts all week, because SO didn’t want me to bake my own birthday treat, so unfortunately I had no treat for you.

While there has been thousands of chocolate recipes floating around Pinterest because Valentine’s Day is tomorrow, I thought I’d come up with a different type of dessert. How about some bacon? Don’t get me wrong, I looooove chocolate. I also love bacon and peanut butter. And who says Valentine’s Day has to be filled with…

Superbowl is approaching and the interwebs has been filled with all sorts of creative party foods. I am a huge sucker for chicken wings. Since I can’t handle too much spicy flavor, garlic parmesan is my go-to wing flavor. I had a bunch of drumsticks left over in my freezer, so I used those instead…

Sweet Bourbon Sausage Pasta

I finally looked at my Blogging Report from 2013. It’s interested that some of my recipes were shared to Reddit. Anyhoo, here’s a quick weeknight recipe for you. It’s one of those “roughly 30-minute meals”. Sorry for the cellphone photos again. This is a quick tomato-based pasta sauce, flavored with Italian sausage and sweet bourbon….

Eggnog German Pancakes

Pancakes and I seem to have a love-hate relationship. I really want to love them, but I can never get myself to order them at a diner when they are huge and I can barely eat 1/3 of the stack before I want to roll over and go back to sleep. Then I discovered these…

Of Mice and Gingerbread Men

I have made a short attempt to bake a lot of cookies over the past couple of weeks, but SO started giving me glares for filling the refrigerator up with goods that I felt guilty. One of the things that I made were gingerbread cookies. I don’t remember why I didn’t make any last year,…
