Q – Have you, Grandma Pat, finally found the ultimate recipe for chicken wings?

A – By golly, I think I have.  On a whim I thawed about a dozen chicken wings, and feeling extremely lazy creative, I simply sprinkled them with Trader Joe’s Chile Lime seasoning blend.  Baked them at about 400 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes, turning them at the half way mark, and enjoyed a truly delicious chicken wing concoction.  Not Buffalo, but yummy!

Even great without the leaf garnish but doesn’t photograph as well.

Update on the Carob Syrup Curry from August 22nd.  At the time of the posting I’d simply mixed together the spice blend.  Today I made the dish.  It’s destined to become one of my go-to, especially for company.  Quick, easy, and delicious.  Thanks, pepsfreefromkitchen.com!


And finally, I re-did the Saltine Toffee Bars, originally posted on August 28, using mini-chocolate chips in order to make the resulting product more eye appealing.  Bottom line – this is still a work in progress.  The mini chocolate chips did not melt and basically didn’t feel like sticking to the finished product.

I envision a unruly mess once the first bit is taken.  Will try another route.  These are too good to give up on.  Never say die and all that sort of brouhaha.
