The other day hubs and I decided we wanted to make some wings for dinner. I am trying really hard to keep my calories in check and that can be really hard when eating wings. Since we make our own sauces, which contain butter, those pesky little boogers can add up fairly quickly in the calorie department. So, it got me to thinking. What could I make that would be good roasted, be filling and handle the hot sauce. [Read more…]
For the longest time I wasn’t a huge fan of all things hot and mighty. All that changed when Buffalo Wild Wings graced the streets of Stillwater, OK around 2006. Prior to that about as warm as I went was medium salsa. Since then I have tested my levels of heat. Over the years I have learned that just because a sauce is super hot doesn’t mean it’s good. If it is going to have heat, it needs to have flavor, too. Unfortunately that is really hard to come by. We have about 20 varieties of hot sauce in the house. The most used is Frank’s Red Hot.

I’m really trying to get back to some sort of normalcy with my weight loss. I had a huge setback earlier this year and since then I haven’t really felt good about taking care of myself. It’s been a chore to battle my depression as I battle manic episodes and haven’t been medicate for quite a few years. When I am having major swings it’s hard for me to get out of bed much less really get motivated to cook. I’ve been taking it day by day and trying to get out of my funk and get back into the groove. I did a low carb / keto diet for quite a while and did really good. Then, I had some pizza and it was all downhill from there. That was over a year ago. [Read more…]
