Speaking Of Hot Sauce


Speaking of hot sauce, and I mean in reference to BeyoncĂ©’s new powerful video Formation, I make some mean hot wings. And, well it’s Superbowl time. I’m still kind of a sore loser as my Patriots didn’t make the cut but I’m excited at the prospect of Cam Newton winning to shut down the nay-sayers. Anyway, Happy Superbowl Sunday y’all! I never really use a recipe for hot wings (always eye-ball it) but this is a good estimate and yes, people always LOVE my wings!

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

10 chicken wings

vegetable oil for frying

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup hot sauce

black pepper to taste

pinch of garlic powder

Melt a lot of hot sauce with real unsalted butter in a small pot. Mix flour with salt, pepper, paprika and a pinch of garlic powder. Dredge the wings in buttermilk (if you have time, you can marinate them overnight in buttermilk) and then cover them in the flour mix. Fry in hot vegetable oil turning them to brown lightly on both sides. Drain them on a paper towel to soak up the extra oil. And then put the wings inside of the small pot with butter and hot sauce. Place on a plate and serve with blue cheese dressing and celery. Yummy! Enjoy.

Are You Ready for Some Football? Yea.. Five Favorite Couture Fashion Helmets

Tadashi Shoji

The Superbowl is coming to New York! And what better way to mix fashion with football than with some completely fabulous helmets! If my Patriots had won yesterday, I might’ve been a bit more enthused to grab one of these lovely helmets but hey if you’re a Seahawks or Broncos fan, you might want this as the perfect accessory for the Superbowl. Hell, after Richard Sherman’s “we the best” rant, I might be excited enough to try one. What’s your favorite?

Check out the CFDA and NFL Foundation auction until February 5th here.

Boston Strong: T-Shirts for One Fund Boston

adidas_BostonStandsAsOne-421x421-1As a former Bostonian, Tufts University Alumna and yes, Red Sox (and Patriots) fan, I am proud of the way that the Boston community has come together after the bombing and hope that justice is served in the face of such an atrocity. This act of terrorism killed several people, injured over 170, and have left many still in the hospital unable to afford their new medical bills.

Students in the area began selling “Boston Strong” T-Shirts and now Adidas, The Celtics, Red Sox and more have all begun selling “Boston Strong” T-Shirts with proceeds going to charity. The Adidas Boston Strong T-Shirts are supporting the One Fund Boston Charity with 100% of the proceeds supporting victims of the bombing.
