Really Good Dry Rub Wings

Flats or drums? I’ve thought a lot about this (can you tell?) because every time someone asks me that question, I answer, “flats.” And they always clap back with, “but it has less meat!” And somehow they think they’ve won an argument. Then I get annoyed because it isn’t an argument to begin with. It’s personal preference. Then one day, it hit me. I prefer the flat pieces because it doesn’t have a lot of meat. Isn’t that the whole point of a chicken wing? If I wanted to eat more meat, I would then opt for a full piece of chicken leg or thigh rather than the wing. With the flat wings, the taste & texture of the chicken skin is what I crave more than the meat. At the end of the day, I’m glad we each have our own preferences – people who are pro-drums and people who are pro-flats. Can you imagine serving wings at a party? It would not be fun if everyone was fighting to get the same piece. …

Grilled Corn Salad with Spicy Honey-Lime Dressing

You may ask, “Did the world freeze over? Is Donna really about to post a SALAD recipe?” The answer is yes, I am going to post a salad recipe. If you know me, you know that I am anti-salad. Okay. Those are strong words. I like salad, but I really don’t like preparing salad at home. I end up with way too much greens that I cannot consume fast enough before they wilt and turn brown. But this recipe is 98% GRILED corn, so I’m going to devour it all of it. The dressing is delicious, and it has THE most simple ingredients (no mayo, I promise!). Don’t get turned off by “grilled”. You don’t need an actual grill to make this. As long as you have an oven, foil, and a baking sheet, you’ll be making this everyday. Fun Fact: I’m actually allergic to corn amongst other weird food items. Fortunately, none of my allergies are life-threatening. If I eat too much of food I’m allergic to, I’ll start getting hives on my chest, …

Honey Sriracha Wings

It’s good to be back!! I apologize for my lack of posts in the month of June – it’s been a hectic month! Long story short, I spent most of my June in the east coast. I traveled to Atlanta for a business trip, returned home for a couple days, started my vacation by flying out to Providence to visit friends, took a train down to Newark and another train all the way down to Brick, NJ, went to NYC for a day (I ATE SO MUCH FOOD), then back to Jersey Shore for a family reunion, and now I’m finally back home. Today’s post is special because these Honey Sriracha Wings are my #1 DEMANDED dish to make from friends, family, and my husband. I have friends who don’t typically enjoy wings, but love this recipe! My mom who usually doesn’t like spicy food also asks me to make this on special occasions. It’s sweet, spicy, and tangy all at the same time. It’s super easy to make and the best part is that …

Tomato, Mozzarella, and Basil Bruschetta

For my first recipe post, I decided to go with this simple tomato, mozzarella and basil bruschetta with balsamic vinaigrette. I know bruschetta has been around for ages, but I never bothered with it or ordered it from a restaurant before because well ummmm I don’t believe in paying $10 for a small piece of toast with cheese on top. Luckily for me, bruschetta was part of an appetizer course during a company happy hour and after I took my first bite, I finally know why it costs $10. They were the most delightful little bites. I still refuse to pay $10 for them though. I went home dreaming about them and when I woke up, I googled a ton of recipes for a tomato, mozzarella, and basil bruschetta. However, I didn’t find THE perfect recipe so just like most of my cooking, I merged a bunch of ingredients here and there and came up with my own recipe for it. It was delicious… and it’s super easy to make! My husband (who doesn’t typically …
