Thanksgiving Cooking, Held Back!


As you may know, I love to cook. Being stuck with a small apartment, an even smaller kitchen and a bistro table that seats 2…needless to say, I cannot host Thanksgiving dinner.

I long for the day. Even though I am a great cook, I always get assigned the easiest things. This year it’s garden salad. So, I got my fixins but was left a little less than satisfied.

A co-worker brought her Food Network magazine to work today. I perused it’s pages and dog-eared several recipes. One that I made as an appetizer for tomorrow. I will call them Easy Cheesy Corn Puffs and here is the recipe. it is really quite easy and super yummerific! I can’t stop eating them. I hope some make it to my sister’s tomorrow.

Who Knew…


Bowl of "Wings"

…that making Buffalo “Wangs” was so easy?

In all my Food Network experience, I’ve seen wing recipes that require a multitude of steps.  Until, that is, C and I saw an episode of “Best Thing I Ever…Made!”  Low and behold it was one of my favorite chefs, Sunny Anderson.

She made these “wangs” for Chef Emeril Lagasse.  We fired up the deep fryer and got busy.  I must say, we make a great team in the tiny lil’ kitchen.  Not at all as sickly sweet as the Neely’s, good gawd I cannot stand all their PDA and small talk!! Anyhow, C did a fab job of separating the drums from the wings and removing the tips.  I am not a fan of that job!! After that, I followed the recipe, only to add a bit more lemon juice for tang!!

So tasty! That’s alot coming from me because I am still conquering my aversion to eating meat STILL attached to the bone.  I have come a long way though.  He’s so proud…

Needless to say, the pad still smells of fry grease and buffalo sauce. A fat kid’s heaven? Hmmmmm, perhaps.  Good thing that was all I ate today!! Still under my allotted calories for the day! HA!!
