Strawberry Marshmallows + Rice Cereal = ????

13 May

So last weekend I went to a Cinco de Mayo party!!!! I made some Tequila Chicken Wings, Caramel Stuffed Rice Krispies and Strawberry rice Krispies treats.  I know I went over board.  So I have the recipe for the wings which has been posted. I got the recipe from Caramel Stuffed Recipes from Cookies and Cups blog (http://cookiesandcups.com/caramel-stuffed-krispie-treats/) The Strawberry rice krispies treat were something different. I found it sweet and gave the false illusion of being healthy, I mean it has Strawberries in it.  I hope you like the below recipe. P.s. I found Strawberry Marshmallows at Target in the clearance section from Valentine’s Day. I love Target Clearance Section. Also I am pretty sure this is nothing new but I wanted to post it anyway. Please forgive my picture, I am too lazy to take picture with my real camera while cooking. 130508_001

Tequila Chicken Wings Attempt 3

12 May

Sorry for the delay. My laptop is acting up and I couldn’t connect to the Internet, for about 3 weeks.   Below is the recipe for the Tequila chicken wings. Its nothing great but I hope it comes out just as good as I made them. I would like to state that this is my second attempt at making these wings.  The First time I burned them horribly, I feel asleep while cooking.  The second time I did not add enough Tequila and forgot the limes. This time I cheated and used the Mojito Lime Marinade from McCormick ( got it from Giant on sale).  I did add more Chili powder and I also glazed the wings with Honey. I think they came out perfect! People who ate them at the Cinco de Mayo party I went to last week enjoyed them! I hope you enjoy them also.
