Those of you who read my post last week about Momofuku’s Ginger Scallion Noodles have probably already figured out that I did succumb and buy the book. And, I’m so glad I did! Even if I never make one more recipe from it, it was still worth the price. It’s a beautiful book and a very entertaining read.
I saw this recipe for baked chicken wings a few weeks ago on Steamy Kitchen’s site, and it sang to me. (I love it when that happens!) I almost always bake my wings instead of frying them, and honestly, I like them better that way. Plus, it’s a lot less messy! Who wants to spend their time sopping up an oil slick on their stove, not to mention figuring out an appropriate way to dispose of a vat of dirty, used, hot oil? I’d rather be watching Simon skewer fresh-faced pop star wannabes on American Idol or finding out who gets “auffed” on Project Runway. (By the way, pouring said oil down the garbage disposal is NOT an appropriate way to dispose of it. Don’t ask me how I know this. Just trust me.) read more >>
