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.
…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!!
