Poppy Poppy Poppy-CORN
After making this I may never revert back to microwave popcorn again! So easy and takes no time at all!! I googled several different popcorn recipes and then played around with the ingredient measurements. I found that if you cooked the kernels with the butter, the popcorn turned out less fluffy and light. So for round two I decided to cook the kernels in just oil. I then melted the butter and poured it on top after the popcorn was all popped. When I make this again I’ll definitely try cooking it in peanut oil rather than vegetable oil. Many people raved that it was much tastier that way! Now what are you waiting for?! Go out and try this recipe for yourself! It’s perfect for a movie night in with your girls or a fun way to spend time with your man! I Promise you’ll have no regrets. :)
Ingredients
Popcorn Kernels (1/2 cup)
Vegetable Oil (or peanut oil) (3tbs)
Melted butter (2-3tbs—really however much butter you would like)
Salt to taste
Directions
Heat up oil in saucepan for about 1-2minutes. Add the popcorn kernels and cover with top. Remove from heat when the popcorn pops slow to about 2 seconds between each pop (usually takes about 2-3minutes to cook). Pour melted butter on top and toss. Add salt.
Dig in!!

ring-a-ding WINGS

If you’re crazy about wings like I am, this is a great recipe for you to try. It’s not your classic medium style buffalo wings. The old bay and worcestershire sauce blend together nicely, giving these wings a settle tangy flavor. It’s the perfect recipe if you’re looking to expose your palette to something new. And even better…it’s so simple to cook! 

Go at ‘em!

Recipe from: Food & Wine. 

Ingredients

- 2 tbs all purpose flour

-1 tsp salt

- 1 tbs Old Bay seasoning

- 2 lbs. chicken wingettes 

-2 1/2 tbs red hot sauce ( Frank’s Red Hot)

- 2 tbs unsalted butter, melted

- 2 tbs Worcestershire sauce

Directions

Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Rinse the chicken, pat dry. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with vegetable oil. In a bowl, mix the flour with the salt and Old Bay seasoning.  Add the chicken and toss to coat. Spread the chicken on the baking sheet in a single layer and spray with vegetable oil. Roast the chicken for 45 minutes, turning once or twice, until browned and crispy.
