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.

Chicken, Cheddar and Corn MuffinsTriple C Muffins (I don’t mean Chocolate)

So today in the DMV had an imaginary snow day!  Yes it was supposed to snow 4-8 inches and Baltimore only got rain. SO I went into the kitchen and cracked open my 1,001 cupcakes & other tempting treats cookbook that I got for Christmas ( Thanks Beth!).  I tried the chicken and corn muffins. I decided, that it was missing something Cheddar Cheese!!!!! So I added ¼ cup of cheddar Jack Cheese and add some cheese to the top to melt over the top.  Initial reaction was that it was ok, it needed something extra.  It was fulfilling and delicious, and would make a great lunch meal like one muffin will fill you up.  I hope you enjoy it and make them one day maybe on your imaginary snow day or just on a rainy day.
