Cheesy Bowl!

February 21, 2008

Alright, I know I’m on a streak with appetizers, but this is the recipe to end all party recipes.   I’ve made this a bunch of times.    It’s super easy and the ultimate party dip.    It’s called Warm Cheesy Bacon Dip, but is usually referred to as the cheesy bowl.    Much thanks to Lisa for this:

Here’s another oldie but goodie… this makes a great appetizer.   I got this from Jess back at Labwerks – I forget the book source.   When you are working with the broiler keep an eye on the eggplant slices, they will burn easily so the cooking time will vary based on your oven strength.    Also some broilers will cook faster in certain areas in the oven.

Buffalo Wings Recipe

February 18, 2008

As a wings fan for many years, this recipe is the real deal.   I’ve had many visits to Lot17, which I think has the best wings in the city.. especially the jerk wings.    The only caveat is you might want to pick up a cheap deep fryer at Target.   Trying to deep fry with oil and just a fry thermometer is a pain.    The deep fryer with fry basket enables you to fry more.   If you don’t want to fry, you can always just add some more time to the bake.   I would keep an eye on the wings so they don’t burn though.
