2 words friends- Hot. Wings. I've literally always been afraid to cook these puppies, from cutting them up to messing with a time honored tradition of perfectly cooked wings I have just stayed away from them. Today I'm happy to tell you that making hot wings is not nearly as scary or hard as I once thought. This recipe is so easy, you make it in the crockpot and use just a few ingredients and bam you've got restaurant lookin' wings on your hands! I used the new KC Masterpiece Fiery Habanero Honey Barbecue Sauce to create all the delicious flavor you expect from your wings and they turned out perfect!
Something about the flavor of cranberry totally screams holiday food to me, you too? perfect. Well this cheeseball is going to be your go to 10 minute appetizer to take with you to parties and family get togethers this winter. Its super easy and addicting. The inspiration from the recipe came from my grocery store- Hyvee. They have a ton of dips that they make and sell, we kept buying one that was very similar to this and so I finally decided to make my own version. We keep eating it- all. the. time. If you are blue cheese/gorgonzola fan this cranberry walnut & gorgonzola cheeseball is going to be your new favorite recipe.
Its officially the Christmas season and I couldn't be happier! Yesterday (the day after Thanksgiving) we put up all the Christmas decorations, including the tree and then we went down to union station where we watched Elf on the biggest screen in Kansas City. My kids loved it, almost as much as me. :) This time of year is one of my favorites, the fact that it was freezing rain didn't even damper my spirits, it just made me want to curl up with a cup of hot chocolate and listen to Christmas music! Today I'm sharing my version of Angelina's hot chocolate (The best hot chocolate in all of Paris), a mint version made with AE After Dinner Mint Chocolate Milk. This delicious drink is perfect to satisfy your sweet tooth and warm you up this winter.
I have a confession to make, up until a few weeks ago I had never tasted Egg Nog. My husband was completely flabbergasted and honestly I don't know why I had been afraid to try it. Its basically Christmas in your mouth. It may help that my first taste of Egg Nog was what many think of as the best possible version of Egg Nog on the market- AE Classic Egg Nog. Matt tried it last Christmas season and was a total convert. When I told him I was going to be partnering with AE this year on the blog the first thing he said was "their Egg Nog is amazing".
So here is my public service announcement for the day: AE Egg Nog is at the grocery store friends, go and get it! And if you don't slurp it all down in the first few hours you can whip up this super easy and delicious Egg Nog cinnamon bread.
