Buffalo Wings

Buffalo Wings

I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to post these on my blog. Since I am a Rochester, NY native, and live in close proximity to the birthplace of Buffalo wings (Buffalo, NY obviously) I am confident in saying that I know my wings. […]

Korean Fried Chicken Sandwich

Korean Fried Chicken Sandwich

When I couldn’t decide between Korean fried chicken wings or a Chick-Fil-A burger, this Frankenstein monstrosity was spawned from the depths of my mind. Which is actually my stomach. I make these sweet Korean fried chicken wings on a monthly basis. When my arteries don’t […]
