Exploring Maryland

At the southernmost tip of the state of Maryland on the western shore of Chesapeake Bay sits the site of St. Mary’s City. Today it is a large, state-run historic area that includes a reconstruction of the original colonial settlement, a living history area and museum complex. These comprise half of the area, the remaining half is occupied by the campus of St. Mary’s College of Maryland, a public honors college.

Singing the Praises of Chicken Wings

Today is all about the chicken wing. Well, not entirely. It’s National Lasagna Day, National Lip Stick Day and National Chicken Wing Day. I gotta tell you, the thought of eating a heavy lasagna in July just doesn’t appeal to me right at the moment. If Lasagna appeals to you, try Lasagna with Garlic Monkey Bread. It’s delicious.

You Can Do Anything with Chicken Wings

Many, many years ago, my Dad was partnered in a Butcher Shop. My brother learned the value of hard physical work as a boy sweeping floors and helping with deliveries. I learned about bookkeeping while working on the office side of the business.

Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings

Today is National Chicken Wing Day. So glad to have wings on a day other than the Super Bowl. Only in America can a sporting event cause a shortage in bird wings!

Wing Stopping Lemon-Pepper Chicken Wings

Every year Hubby, Kiddo and I take the short drive over to a neighboring small town to attend their Chocolate Festival in the town square. There are more craft vendors than chocolate vendors, but still it’s a hoot. Plenty of goodies to sample and gadgets to buy. We love small town festivals and street fairs.

Picante-Marmalade Glazed Chicken Wings

I know, enough with the chicken wings already! This is my last wing recipe (for this week) – I promise. I’ve been reading some of my older easy recipe cookbooks and I keep finding delicious recipes I had forgotten about. Besides, you can never have too many chicken wing recipes or too many choices for finger foods, right? These spicy-sweet wings are just a little different but oh so tasty.

Louisiana Hot Chicken Wings

The Big Game is coming, the Big Game is coming! Sorry about my crazy enthusiasm, but as I’m writing this piece, I’m watching one of my favorite comedies from 1966, The Russians Are Coming, the Russians are Coming!

My Big Game Day Menu

While Hubby watched the two remaining play-off games, I began the rather difficult task of putting together this year’s actual Super Bowl Game Day menu. (Truth be told, I was hoping it would be Kansas City and New Orleans Saints in Atlanta. How easy is that? Barbecue and Cajun dishes with a southern spin! Didn’t happen, but that’s okay, too).

Japanese Glazed Chicken Wings

This yummy, sticky finger-food is a delicious adaptation of my Japanese Glazed Drumsticks. It makes for a wonderful appetizer or a welcome addition to any game day munchies. It’s been a big hit with my guys. I even served these wings for my Dad’s appetizer inspired birthday party. While there is a little work involved; these are so delicious it’s well worth the effort. Just be sure to include some wet-wipes as the chicken is sticky-good.
