A Recipe has no soul. You as a the cook must bring soul to the recipe. - Thomas Keller
Happy July Friends. Hope your weekend was good with perfect weather.
Mine I can say was hot and irritating. Our a/c is not working and it was 100 in the Bay. Thankfully I got a chance to stay in the skating ring with my preteen, safe for 3 hours while my little baby played cricket for hours in the burning heat. I also had a brilliant but impractical idea of driving around so we don't have to walk into the oven. Well, that did not happen, I wonder why.
I chose to ignore the heat and make some dinner with some reluctance.. I've been in a cooking coma for a few days now. So, the plan of action was not to sweat over the stove, and to use my oven instead. Coming to think of it I should have used the grill, well, just goes to show that the heat has done a number on my brain. I should have followed my fellow blogger friend Kiran from Kiran and Tarun who has been cooking up a storm on her grill.
I made these sticky spicy masala chicken wings for the first time last year for a backyard party and it was enjoyed and spoken about for days. When I say this was spicy, it was 'drink a tub of buttermilk' spicy but in a good way. I guess it's the addiction of pain to the senses..which we all love, right?
I baked em' in the oven this time, minus the smoky flavor it was all that and if not yummier. If you prefer the smokiness, go for the grill and keep the sauce ready to mix in just before serving. I promise you, you will be a kitchen superstar, but let's keep the secret sauce a secret, will ya?;)
On a different topic, I am excited to show off my new header, what do you think about it? We still have to work on it, this is what a Sunday got us to. My alter ego needs longer hair and a longer face. Any and every feedback is good.
For now here goes the famous TURN UP THE HEAT Chicken Wings with Secret Sauce.
