    Garlic Butta Hot Wings

    Total Time: 1 hr 40 min
    Prep: 1 hr 5 min
    Cook: 35 min
    Yield: 4 to 6 servings
    Level: Easy


    For the wings;
    1 tablespoon granulated garlic
    1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
    1 tablespoon mustard powder
    1 tablespoon freshly cracked black pepper
    1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
    2 teaspoons ground cumin
    4 pounds chicken wings, tips removed

    For the sauce:
    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1 tablespoon minced garlic (about 2 cloves)
    1 jalapeno pepper, minced (remove seeds for less heat)
    1 12 -ounce bottle hot pepper sauce
    4 tablespoons unsalted or salted butter
    1 tablespoon white vinegar
    1 tablespoon fresh lime juice


    Turn on the radio or boom box to your favorite selection of Hand drum songs.

    Prepare the wings: In a large bowl, combine the granulated garlic, cayenne pepper, mustard powder, black pepper, white pepper and cumin. Remove and reserve 2 tablespoons of the spice mixture for the sauce.

    Rinse the wings and pat dry. Add to the bowl with the remaining spice mixture and toss to coat well. Lay the wings on a baking sheet, loosely cover and refrigerate 1 to 2 hours.

    Preheat a grill to medium high with direct and indirect heat (on a gas grill, turn off the burners on one side; on a charcoal grill, bank the coals to one side). Cook the wings over direct heat, turning, until they are good and crispy on both sides, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer to the cooler side of the grill and cook, turning frequently, until cooked through, 8 to 10 more minutes.

    Make sure that there ain't no dogs hangin' 'round the grill when you cook these wings. They don't need any help walking away when you're not lookin'.

    Meanwhile, make the sauce: In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the olive oil, garlic and jalapeno. Sauté 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add the reserved 2 tablespoons spice mixture and the hot sauce. Bring to a simmer, then add the butter, vinegar and lime juice and stir until the butter melts. Keep warm until ready to serve. Put the wings in a large bowl, pour in the sauce and toss.

    To make these wings in the oven, arrange on a rack set on a baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees F for 45 to 55 minutes, turning halfway through.

    This is not considered healthy food. You've been warned. Enjoy!

    Easy Beef Roast

    Again, this one was to save time and effort

    Take a big old beef roast, throw it in your crock pot, add chunks of onions (2-4 whole onions, or those frozen baby onions, those are cute to use too!!)
    add the usual, garlic and pepper....

    then take 2 envelopes of onion soup mix, 5 envelopes of beef / brown or mushroom gravy mix, add just enough water to melt them
    all down, pour over the roast in crock pot, then add more water
    until it get about 1 1/2 inches below the top lip of the crock pot
    cover with lid, turn on high, walk away.
    (I usually set mine up , so that it starts as I'm walking out the door to work)

    When you get home, remove lid and add in 1lb bag of baby carrots carrots and chunks of potatoe that have been cut up, place lid back on top, let cook for 30-45 mins, when potatoes are done, serve .....

    the gravy makes in the crock pot while cooking and the meat will fall apart when you try to pick it up.....

    NOW, if you want to not make the gravy, just don't use the gravy envelopes, but still use the instant onion soup mix....and whatever leftovers you have can then be used to make stroganoff or
    can be used to make soup..or can be chopped up to go in you brunswick stew container in the freezer that we talked about earlier.....

    Beef Stroganoff

    Okay this is another one I came up with to try to help out some friends who needed something that could be done for large this can be multiplied or divided easily depending on the number of people you are feeding.....

    Beef: either quality ground beef, ground beef/ground turkey mixture, or chunks of leftover roast beef (I'll post that one next)

    cook beef with 2 large chunked onions, and about 2-3 packages of mushrooms (fresh, either white, button or baby portobellos) that have been sliced, and 6-8 cloves of fresh garlic that have been smashed and chopped (or use the jar of diced garlic you find in the produce dept that you keep in the fridge, so easy to use this more often) salt and pepper

    when done, DO NOT DRAIN

    2 large cans of cream of mushroom soup
    about 1 cup of milk
    2 16 oz cartons of sour cream

    if it is not thin enough add more milk
    if it is too thin add 1 small can of cream of mushroom soup at a
    time to thicken up

    careful not to let it stick to the pot and burn

    cook 2 large bags of egg noodles al dente
    serve sauce over noodles
    w/ a really nice garlicy hearty bread
    and a good fresh salad

    NOW, if you are not having a large get together, don't cook all those noodles at once, just cook what you need, then take the sauce and after it cools, fill quart sized ziplocks halfway full, get the air out, lay them flat to freeze, then you can stack them neatly in the freezer for a quick and easy meal later. If you have a seal a meal, that's even better, because after you seal, and freeze, when you're ready to use, just pop the whole bag into a pot of boiling water to heat it up....

    Easy Chili
    with or without beans, up to you....

    Okay, start out the same as most everythign...get the 12qt pot w/ lid out...dice a couple of big onions...then follow up with this..

    Ground Meats

    Okay, sometimes, I use just ground beef...the better quality the better it taste, however, I can't always find that on
    Most times I use a total of about 5 lbs of ground meat for this...
    Whether it is ground beef, ground turkey, ground pork or a mixture of the three or two or whatever, just ground meat....
    (last week I found ground turkey on sale for 99cents a pound, and bought every bit they had, and repackaged it and stuck it in the freezer)( and again, if you find a roast or some other cut of beef that has a less expensive price than what it already ground in the meat case, you can ask the meat department workers to grind that piece up for you if you don't have a meat grinder at home...I have one at home, and it's worth it's weight in gold!!)

    I normall like to use 2 lbs of ground sirloin and 3-4 pounds of ground turkey for my "normal" chili.....

    so brown that up with the chopped onions, some black pepper, a dash of garlic powder, a bit of salt, cook until the onions are clear and the ground meat is done

    do not rinse, do not drain, just leave it......

    add in 3 envelopes of you local store brand envelope Chili spice
    on the spice aisle, where all the other envelopes of gravy and sauce mixes are...I usually use just the mild flavor......

    Throw those in and stir well, letting the juices make the spices liquify....

    now, if you want beans, take 4-5 cans of red (dark or light, whichever you prefer, makes no difference in taste) and pour into a collander and rinse thoroughly, like 5-6 times, get that ick off of them...when they look fresh, then toss them in the pot,
    add to this 3 large cans of tomatoe sauce........makes sure to stir it as it begins to boil, it will thicken and reduce some, but not a, when done, you can put leftovers in quart sized ziplock bags...fill 1/2 way, get all the air out,then seal and lay flat, so when it freezes, the bag is nice and flat and can be stacked neatly in your freezer.......

    without beans is great on hot dogs if you're cooking out for a football game or are out camping.....

    AnyKynd Pot Pie

    this can be used for a plethera of things...just do what sounds good to you...

    When I bake a chicken or buy one of those quick and easy already roasted chickens at the grocery store, this is what I do with the left overs ( you could also use leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, or a few cans of drained tuna fish, or deboned salmon, or beef roast chunks, or even stewed fruit, or canned pie filling)

    Debone leftovers

    add 2 cans of drained mixed vegs (Or use your leftover veggies from your freezer tupperware container)
    chop up an onion if you'd like, add that too
    add a can of cream of mushroom or chicken soup, whichever you'd like

    add enough until it looks like the right proportions
    pour into a casserole dish

    here's the crust :

    1/2 stick butter soft
    1 cup milk
    1 1/2 cup self rising flour
    mix together pour over top of meat/veggie/mixture

    on top of that pour 1 stick of melted butter

    bake at 350 degrees for about 1 1/2 hours
    until golden brown

    Thanksgiving Dressing the way my Daddy likes it

    So, same with the tupperware you make biscuits and cornbread and have leftovers for several months before Thanksgiving, after they have sat in your fridge overnight and gotten cold, throw them in the food processor and grind them up to crums, or put in a ziplock and make crumbs using the bottom of a heavy glass...seperate cornbread and biscuit/bread crumbs in seperate gallon sized ziplocks and put them in your freezer.

    **you can also save crumbs for casserole toppings this way**

    When you're ready to make dressing:

    Use 1 gallon ziplock bag of each: cornbread crumbs, biscuit crumbs, and bread crumbs

    Pour these into a super huge bowl ( I use a stainless steel bowl that is about as big as , well, if you held your arms out in front of you in a big circle, that's the size of the bowl I use to do this)

    Now, this is where you decide how much to make. The 3 bags together with the ingredients that follows makes about 2, 1/2 steamtable sized aluminum pans of finished product. (So, for every two pans, you will need the 3 bags of crumbs plus the ingredients that follow, to make 4 pans you need 6 bags of crumbs and double the ingredients that follow..see?)

    add to crumbs

    6 eggs
    1 can cream of chicken soup
    1 can cream of celery soup
    1 can cream of mushroom soup
    1 qt bag of chopped celery
    1 qt bag of diced onions
    1 qt of chicken broth

    get your hands in there and mix it with your hands....(don't try it with any other will make a horrible mess and have to listen to you mama fuss...just don't do yourself the hassle.....)
    and again...add lots of pepper, garlic powder, maybe a little salt to taste....(no, I don't use sage, my Daddy will not eat it in dressing...only in the sausauge that I make for him...but never in dressing.....but feel free to add it if you'd like to remember, fresh is best...)

    Bake at 400degrees until lightly browned on edges, don't dry it
    out, that's just gross....gravy is good but it is not a band aid for dry dressing....

    hope ya like it...

    Chicken and Dumplings

    This is the size I do this, you may want to decrease for the number of folks you're feeding....I always start this the day before I need it (Cook, and debone chicken the night before)

    Take a 12 qt pot w/ lid
    Add 10 chicken bullion cubes, 1 large diced onion, and 2 baking hens (Or you can use just chicken thighs or just chicken breasts, I like a good mix of light meat to dark meat so I used the whole chicken, now, if chicken is on sale, I'll just use whatever's on sale)
    Add garlic (I like to use several cloves of fresh, but powdered is fine) and pepper until you can tell it's there
    Boil until chicken is completely done, falling off the bone

    remove from heat, remove chicken from pot, save liquid
    let chicken cool completely and remove meat from bone and skin,
    (throw out bone and skin unless your making broth to can or freeze) chop chicken into bite sized pieces and place in ziplock bags until next day, save all of broth as is until next day.

    next day, put broth in 12qt pot back on stove and heat until jell is liquified, add 2 cans of chicken stock to pot,

    get 2- 4 count packages of the cheapest canned biscuits you can find, open one at a time, on a floured biscuit cloth, roll out biscuits until they are thin, flour them and then cut into strips, when broth begins to boil hard, put biscuit strips in one at a time, stirring constantly so that they don't stick to the bottom of the it carefully or it will stick, turn down the heat if needed to prevent this, watch your liquid while doing this and add more if needed, not too much, because you want the extra flour on the biscuits from where you rolled them out , to thicken and make a nice gravy, after all biscuits are cut into strips and cooked in the broth, add the chicken back to the pot.
    If the broth is to your satisfaction as far as thickness, serve, if not, take about a cup of hot broth and add a tablespoon full of flour to it...mix it really really well, until there are no lumps, then add to the pot, stir it in really well, and it will help to thicken the broth

    DO NOT ADD SALT TO will be salty enough because of the bullion cubes, but you may want to add more pepper and garlic..I always do..

    This makes enough to serve a really big meal for 10 people and have plenty of leftovers to send home with everyone for lunch the next couple of days.........

    I came up with this one to make things simpler for people that I work with who want quick and easy....

    Quick and Easy Potatoe Soup

    (I use a 12 quart pot for the receipe as is, you can decrease as you need or desire)

    3 bags Frozen Hash Browns
    3 bags frozen chopped onions

    place in large pot, cover with water
    add 1 stick Butter

    cook until potatoes are done and onion is clear

    add salt and pepper to taste

    add milk until it looks "milky" instead of "watery"


    add instant potatoe flakes until the "broth" is your desired thickness, I add a good bit, because I like potatoe soup to be
    thicker..remember when adding, it may take a minute before the broth starts to thicken, so go slow and check it before you add more potatoe flakes......may need to add more salt and pepper at this time

    Try it and let me know what you think....It's been a big hit at my office....especially in cooler weather...
    U got an office? Dang! What do u do?
