I can't remember the last time I was this sick (fever, chills, sleeping until noon and the like), so I am going to keep this post short & sweet, actually, it's going to be a little more savory this time...
My dad told me I needed some "real food" on my blog. Silly father, cheese puffs, brownies & cake are real food. I mean, they may not be the healthiest thing ever, but they are real food! Especially if you compare them to half of the things in the supermarket today - no artificial color, xanthan gum or Microcrystalline cellulose here!
So dad, here is some real food: Buffalo wings, adapted to be healthy. They have protein, W sauce, hot sauce, love & deliciousness. So I better not be getting a phone call later saying that I yet again didn't post real food.
As you probably guessed it, I made these for the Superbowl. You'd also be correct if you guessed that I took this picture after I let all the vultures swoop in and take part in the wing feast. I made somewhere in the ball park of 25 wings and 10 minutes later, these are all that were left.
For the actual cooking part, please make sure you have some jellyroll pans. Aaron and his roommate somehow didn't own a single one and I had to jiffy-rig an aluminum foil covered oven rack in its place. It worked, but not so well. The chicken drippings dribbled all over the bottom of the oven, set off the fire alarm a few times (it's not good until the fire alarm goes off, am I right?) and had to crack every window in his apartment. Even with all that drama, these turned out so well. Aaron and his roommate made sure I talked them through the recipe and gave them a copy so they could make the wings again & again.
Best part, this was my first time ever making wings. In the words of Charlie Sheen, WINNING!
