... or How I Sold My Soul For A Catchy, Misspelled Turn Of Words! Hopefully none of you will catch whatever it is that made me spell the title of this post like that. It would have rhymed anyway! This was totally unnecessary!
Well, I must say that Chef John has impressed the daylights out of me once again. I tried out a different way of making wingz (yipe!) - - - I mean wings, that he has on Foodwishes.com. He describes a way of oven frying. I've always liked my wings, which have
always been done in the oven. They are tender, and moist, and full of deep flavors. My girls have always liked them as well. But these oven fried wings were both crunchy and moist. They would have been outstanding without the glaze, but when you use the
Clifton Springs glaze, well they are
outstanding! That's an "outstanding" that has been bolded, underlined, and italicized. That means they were really good. In fact, I think my daughters want me to make them this
way all of the time, for which I blame Chef John. Big meanie!
I'm not sure, but I think the two big differences in the way he does wings and the way I was doing them is that I baked them at 350F instead of 400F and he dredged the wings with flour, whereas I always dry rubbed but did not flour them.
Oh, and I left the tips on the flat of the wings. I'll have to try to convert Chef John into a PENWiT. Remember to donate obscene amounts of money to PENWiT. I am assured that my Swiss bank account will be accepting donations soon! Remember, save the tips from
neglect. Donate now! People for the

We paired the wingz (dang it!) with a nice green salad and for dessert I made this apple thingy kinda like a pie, but more like a crisp thingy. And it tasted really good. But it was more of a crisp than a pie but it wasn't too very crisp really. But it was
full of butter and graham crackers and cinnamon, and it tasted really good even though it was soggy. But it had oats in it so it had to be healthy, right? Because healthy foods have oats in them, right?
