Oh Yes! Baked Wings you can make that will knock your socks off. And they are just in time for your Super Bowl party. You’ll be so proud of yourself for pulling this off without all of the calories of frying. I cannot think of anyone that does not love hot wings, but I’ll be the first to say that I cannot eat them without the guilt. We now can because of the recipe that I saw posted from my friend Diana last year during the super bowl from this fabulous blog. Yes, a year ago. I’ve made these a dozen times and have enjoyed them immensely. Today I made them for lunch and finally could take a decent photo. So here it is for all of you to try. You’ll never buy them again.

These are perfect for Sunday’s Superbowl Game! They’re so cute and so good. Think spicy pizza bites, but better. Carter said, “This is in the top three Mrs. Lupo!” Now that’s good! Two years ago I was introduced to this variation and they were a hit. I wanted to try them again but with a little change-up. It worked well. If you are trying to make out a Superbowl menu make sure you serve these little cups. They are super easy and will be a party pleaser for sure.
I’m so glad that I tried this recipe at home before making it for 130 students. So many things can go wrong even with the simplest of dishes . After taking a closer look at this I discovered that one of the pepperoni balls has 350 calories. Well, that may be fine and good for my swimmers and football players but for the average person that’s not what I would like to encourage as a snack. With that said I set out to reduce the calories by cutting the serving size to 80 calories. The original recipe called for an entire biscuit. I cut each biscuit into quarters and proceeded with the original recipe. It really came out beautifully, but did not have the pizza punch that I wanted and it was a little time-consuming. So I used a recipe from the dark ages and my students thought it was genius. I couldn’t believe that only two or three had made small pizzas using biscuit dough. They all said , “Why would we make them when we can just buy frozen pizza pockets at the grocery store? ” Now they can create their own pizza appetizers and control the ingredients.
Love this recipe!!! My neighbor Kim had these had a party and I must have eaten 12 without even thinking. They are so good. There is nothing better than finding a great recipe that takes less than 10 minutes to put together and is healthy. I’ve served these at least six times this summer and everyone is so amazed. You will be,too. Just keep this idea in your back pocket for your next get together. It is a hit for sure. Hope your summer is going well. My vacation time is coming to an end as of July 31!
I love sausage balls for breakfast. When Syble told be about this recipe that she got from her sister Sue I knew that I had to try it. It’s another easy one that anyone can do. Make and freeze so you can pull them out anytime. My freezer is my friend for so many baked goods. Let it do some work for you. You’ll be that much more organized in the morning when it is crunch time to get out of the door.
Last month I served these to my book club. Now they are here for you to pull out for your next get together. They are so easy to make. In fact you can prepare the dough ahead of time and freeze so it will be sitting there ready when you are ready. A hundred years ago I made these cheese straws using a manual cookie gun and I found them quite difficult to push through. Now Paula Deen has saved all of us some manual labor. How much easier can you get than slice and bake?
Here I am back again with a boatload of recipes for you! School is in full swing and everyday I am bombarded by the question when are we cooking? I hate it that we can’t cook everyday, but there are Standards to be covered and all that other stuff the state requires. I am excited about this year’s angels that have been given to me to broaden their knowledge about my love of cooking. I have a plan to teach them 30 dishes that everyone should know when they leave home and endeavor life on their own. I am excited especially when I hear a student talking to a friend and saying to them that I am a cool teacher. It really makes my day because there are times that I have some self doubt. You know every once in a while you just want to know if they really care about what you are doing. I had a lot of fun doing this recipe from Pillsbury. There are so many students that want to help me in the kitchen! For this first demonstration of the year I had some great volunteers. Surprisingly none of the four had any cooking experience, but they did great! I am looking forward to another fabulous year with rewarding cooking experiences to share along the way.
If you want to impress someone with a great appetizer this is for you. It will get you rave reviews no matter where you take it. My friend Marilyn has served this many, many times and it is always a hit. In fact, if she doesn’t bring it she is really in trouble. The recipe has been shared with everyone and I have it somewhere, but when I wanted to make it last month for my tennis match in Newnan I could not find it. Syble of course had the recipe and sent it to me. So I’m in the grocery store buying everything and the recipe doesn’t say what size can of deviled ham to use. Thank goodness for phone cameras and text messaging. I took a picture of both sizes of ham and sent it to Syble and the small can was the winner. Speaking of using your phone camera in the store. I get the biggest kick watching husbands shopping for groceries. There will be some conversation followed by picture-taking and more conversation, ” Okay good I’ll get this.” What a help for husbands that don’t have a clue about shopping.
Don’t hate me for this recipe that you are going to love! It’s fantastic, easy, but not healthy. Invite at least 18 of your friends over when you decide to make it that way everyone gets two and you have no guilt. Or just have them as a main dish with a big salad. Anyway, you’ll have to balance out the calories some way to keep it all away from your hips if you know what I mean.
Here’s how I got the recipe. After Easter, Madison in my fourth period class told me that his mother had made the best biscuits with Rotel tomatoes and that was all it took. I had to have the recipe. It is really good and you can change it up for whatever meat that you might have. I think that Canadian Bacon, ham, sausage, and even chicken would work perfectly.
This appetizer from Gourmet is just what we all want and need. It is so good and can literally be ready in 20 minutes. What else could you want? Deliciousness? Yes, it has that. I love it! You might need this for your next football party or when you and your friends get together for dinner. It is the perfect appetizer! I don’t have fresh thyme at my beck and call so I purchased some three times to make this. It did not happen and now I am left wondering why. Maybe because it is just too easy!
