Sweet Soy-Glazed Chicken Wings

This recipe turned out great. I added a little garlic-chili paste and ginger. Yum

There's More Than One Way to Roast Garlic

instead of turning on your oven just to make garlic why not roast a few or many heads next time you happen to have the oven on? either foil wrapped or enough to fill an 8x8 covered tightly in foil. i've done both at different temps--use your eyes and nose to tell if done.

Chocolate Cookie Pie Crust

if you dont want to buy or dont have choclate wafers, toss in 1/4 c cocoa powder with regular wafers. or use graham crackers. a couple tbs white sugar is good too.

How We Made Classy Jell-O Shots

for the sazerac shot, instead of making a layer of or incorporating the absinthe into it, there's a couple different options i thought of. how about using a spray bottle to spritz the little square once they're cut, or spritz the inside of a coupe glass and put the square in there?

Spiced Candied Pecans

ive made lots of different cooked nuts in the past. first mix sugar and spices and whatever i want to add. then i take an egg white and a tbs of water and use a stick blender to make into a foam. toss nuts in egg mix then toss with sugar mix. bake at 300, mix every 10-15 for about 35-45. done. use garlicy and keep on hand for salads, use cinnamon and maple for a sweet treat. yum.
