257. My honey is testing recipes for a "Wings Throw Down"! No, it's not with Bobby Flay *sigh*. This Throw Down is with my husbands friends. They have done a Chili Throw Down and a Lasagna Throw Down...and David has won each time!!! But, David has moved there is a new playing field. Although, David has threatened to visit just to be a part of the Throw Down...the guys went nuts! They started to make up new rules on the spot: Entries only if you live local; NO visitors allowed; Change the date so David won't know when the actual Throw Down is; Etc.....

For my honey's wing recipe, our family agreed to be the "Special Wings Testers". We told him to make a different batch every week and we would let him know which ones were the best. Of course I have an alternative motive, but we just want to help him win, *wink, wink*.
This was the first batch, "Baked Hot Wings". But, they just were not hot enough. We ended up placing the Red Hot bottle on the table and used it as a dipping sauce.We suggested more garlic, more hot ingredients and more spices.

So, the saga continues...Stay tuned!

Our second attempt was packed with flavor but the coating was too thick.

"Telling someone to get a bunch of ingredients together has zero impact. When you take the dish and show someone how, it becomes so much clearer. My passions comes from being able to create on the fly."

These sound delicious but I'm curious to see what your final batch will look like. This is my first visit to your blog, so I took some time to browse through your earlier posts. I'm so glad I did that. I really like the food and recipes you share with your readers and I'll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

I just kinda by accident found your blog and am enjoying looking around. The wings would have been perfect to my liking because I don't like very spicy foods- just a hint. I also want to comment on your delicious looking butternut squash soup. I must try it because butternut squash is one of my favorite things to eat. You advised a small portion since it is so rich but I'm sorry to say I would probably want the whole bowl. Heehee. Come by and visit one of my blogs sometimes and let's get acquainted.------ Shannon
