One-Two Wasabi Wings

Tweet When I think of football I think of wings. I’m not really sure why the two go hand in hand, they just do. And I absolutely love it!! I’ve made buffalo wings several times already (tons of times for my handsome man) so I decided to switch it up a little… These were absolutely [...]

All Time BEST Bread Pudding EVER!

Tweet And I do mean ever! Seriously, I don’t know if it is the bread that Fairway Market sent over (thanks Susan!! It’s delicious!), the ridiculously amazing recipe from Bon Appetit, or the substitution of Cognac in place of Bourbon but this bread pudding is — OUT OF THIS WORLD. Some of you maybe going, [...]
