Classic Buffalo Wing recipe… can’t go wrong!

Warm things up on  chilly Super Bowl Weekend  with classic Buffalo wings!
Best Homemade WingsWe pretty much will eat anything that has been “Buffalo-ized” in our house. Chicken, shrimp, mac & cheese, pizza, egg rolls, dips, calamari, French fries, baked potatoes  … we’ve done it all but routinely come back to these classic wings  based on the original Anchor Bar recipe from Buffalo, NY. (It’s been a long time since I ate wings in Buffalo, NY , but we make these at least once a week and honestly prefer them to ordering out in our area!)

About 3 lbs of chicken wings (you can buy the wingettes already set to go, or buy whole wings cut them apart at the joint)
1 Tablespoon peanut oil (or vegetable oil)
1 tsp salt
1 cup flour
1 1/2 Tablespoons white vinegar
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (increase slightly for hotter wings)
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp Tabasco sauce (increase slightly for hotter wings)
1/4 tsp salt
6 Tablespoons Frank’s hot sauce
6 Tablespoon butter

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

1. Toss wings in a bowl with oil and salt. In large zip lock bag, add flour. Add wings to ziplock with flour and shake until evenly coated.

2. Line cookie sheet with foil and oil (I usually use about 1 Tablespoon of peanut oil for added flavor and evenly coat the foil by spreading it around with my fingers. Make sure it is all covered so wings don’t stick.)

3. Take wings out of bag, shake off extra flour, and place on cookie sheets. Do not crowd them so they bake evenly. Place on bottom rack of oven and bake for 20 minutes at 425. Then flip and bake for another 20 minutes, or until wings are cooked through.

4. Time to make your sauce… in sauce pan combine white vinegar, cayenne, garlic powder, Worcestershire, tabasco, salt, Frank’s hot sauce, and butter. Cook on low heat until blended then let turn off heat and let sit (if you cook on too high, the butter separates so go “low and slow” with the sauce).

5. Once wings are done cooking, place in large mixing bowl. (I try to stack them up on the edges of the bowl so when I pour the sauce in, it is a little easier to evenly coat the wings.) Gently toss with wooden spoon or spatula (don’t get too “rough” with them, you don’t want them to lose any of their crispy coating).

6. Serve with blue cheese and celery. Enjoy!!

Apple Caramel Sundae to finish off your Fall Family Fun day!

apple bowl sundaesHave you had a little Fall Family Fun at a local apple orchard this weekend? 

Are you now looking at all of those apples and wondering how you could possibly get through them all? 

How about an apple caramel sundae using the apple as the your dish? 

Cute, delicious, and pretty easy…

 

Ingredients:
Apples                           Butter (if desired)
Cinnamon                     Vanilla Ice Cream
Sugar                            Caramel sauce (see below)

For some crunch: Granola (see recipe in blog or another favorite), Nuts,
Snyder’s Salted Caramel Pretzel bits (A new favorite!! Savory sweet crunch – umm!)

Directions:
1.  Heat over to 350 degrees.
2.  Hollow up the apples with a corer, melon scoop, or firm metal spoon.
3.  For richer flavor, rub inside of apple with soft butter (make sure to “dry” inside of apple so the butter sticks).  You can also skip this part.
4.  Mix your cinnamon and sugar together (use your own favorite proportions).   Sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture inside the apples.
5.  Bake apples for 20 minutes and then let cool.  Once cool, scoop in your favorite vanilla ice cream and pour caramel sauce of them. For a little crunch, top with granola, nuts,  my new favorite pretzel bits, or get creative!

Caramel Recipe:
Ingredients:
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup half and half
4 Tablespoons butter
Pinch of salt
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract

Mix the brown sugar, half-and-half, butter and salt in a saucepan.  Cook over medium-low heat  whisking gently for 5 to 7 minutes, until mixtures thickens.  Add the vanilla and cook one more minute to thicken sauce further. Turn off the heat and cool.  (You can store extra sauce in a jar in the refrigerator.  Just microwave for a few seconds to make sauce “saucey” again after refrigerating.)

Happy Fall! (Happy Projects!)

Old Post Road, North Attleboro Need any help compiling your Fall To-Do list?
This Old House suggests the following six projects  to think about now …
well before your holiday guests start arriving!!

vacuuming vent register and grill for better heat circulation, fall easy upgrades for upkeep1. Drain and Store Hoses garden hose dripping and wound up in grass, fall easy upgrades for upkeep
2. Light your Pathways
3. Move Cold-Sensitive Items Inside
4. Dust Heating Vents
5. Upgrade Your Thermostat
6. Extend Downspouts

Cool mornings, warm afternoons, and then back to cool evenings could only mean one thing – fall is here! We have really had some beautiful days in North Attleboro these past couple of weeks. The weather has been perfect for apple picking, checking out the fall foliage, enjoying the kids’ practices and games, hiking the endless trails of New England, and even getting in some beach trips (especially now that it is after Labor Day you can take your canine friends to many of them).

BUT… With only 14 more weekends until January (yikes!), we really should also be taking advantage of these nice fall days to prepare for the harsher weather to come. I know we have our standard Fall To-Do list … closing the pool, cleaning & putting away pool furniture, clearing out gardens and mulching, raking leaves, picking up chestnuts, finishing up exterior painting projects.  This Old House is always great for adding a few more projects to our list 🙂
