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!!

Fun Drink for the Big Game – Go Pats!


This looked fun, easy, and delicious (and since we are supposed to get another foot of snow… maybe we will get to sleep in again so maybe we could have a couple?? How nice would it be if  we got the “no school” call tonight!!)

Love a Good Rub?

If you like pulled pork (or ribs, or pork tenderloin), this dry rub is for you!  So simple with just 6 ingredients, yet great flavor that you can enjoy as is or with any of your favorite BBQ or Asian sauces.  Perfect the big game this Sunday – go Pats!

patriot helmetMix together…
1/3 cup paprika
1/4 cup black pepper
1/4 cup sugar
2 T salt
2 tsp. dry mustard
2 tsp. cayenne
…and that’s it. I store it in a plastic container in my refrigerator so it is ready to go whenever.

For pulled pork:
Pork Butt (one that will fit in your crock pot)
One large sweet onion, sliced into 1/2 inch slices

Cover all four sides of the pork butt with the Rub and “rub it in” a bit. Place onion slices in bottom of crock pot. Lay “rubbed” meat on the onions (fat side “up”) then place remaining onions on top. Let sit in fridge over night. I then cook the pork on low all day until meat easily “pulls apart” by gently using a fork. You really should not have to work too hard to pull the meat apart… if you do, cook longer 🙂  I usually have mine in for 6-8 hours depending how busy my day is!

This pork is delicious over rice or on your favorite a roll. (I’ve even made “nachos” by putting it over tortilla chips with some cheddar cheese – melt in the oven for a few minutes.  Or great for sliders while watching the Patriots play their way into the Super Bowl).  Enjoy!
