Finger Licking Wings

Don't know about you but I absolutely love 'Wing Stop' it is extremely delicious and you can't get enough of it. I order 12 pieces of chicken wings, eat them all and still want more... Needless to say, I was wasting a lot of money and calories eating at Wing Stop all the time. So I learned how to make them myself. After learning how easy it is to make the same exact wings I paid $20 for. I never went back to Wing Stop again. Mine are super delicious, and as you can see for yourself in the video below. Its done in literally 5 minutes. The oven does the rest. No Mess...

Forget about going to 'Wing stop' or 'Buffalo wild wings' when you can have better wings at home.
I'm talking about finger licking, scrumptious, jaw dropping, delicious baked wings that are much healthier for you and taste better then when fried. Since these wings are baked, that means you can have more of them and think less about the bad calories and fat packing on!

Ice cream cone cupcake

For this unique cupcake I just made a basic cake. You can do whatever flavor you want... Follow my basic cake recipe and make your favorite cake flavor. Preheat your oven to 350F or 175C Then get regular ice cream cones and fill them half way with your cake batter, place them neatly standing on a baking tray (careful not to knock them over)  and bake in the oven for 22 - 24 minutes. Remove from oven and let it cool before you frost it with your favorite frosting. Try this delicious cream cheese frosting

In this picture I used a red velvet cupcake frosted with cream cheese frosting, Super delicious and really cute.

Stuffed Bread

I made this homemade bread today for a few friends and it was delicious. I rolled out the dough and filled it with turkey/ham, cream cheese, and spinach. It was honestly really good and disappeared in minutes. The fun part is that you can stuff it with whatever you want.

Try stuffing it with shredded chicken, ground meat, tuna or anything that you like putting on bread and just bake it in the dough. Quick and easy. Definitely a crowd pleaser...

Sad part is I didn't even get a chance to get a snap shot of the completed bread, it was that good...When you cut into it, its nice and soft filled with all these dibble treats

Here is my Homemade Bread dough  recipe and all you need to do is roll it out, stuff it and bake it. That simple. As you can see the dough itself is also very simple to make.

Grilled head of cabbage

Simple, just rinse your cabbage and cut it into thick pieces, season it with a bit of salt and pepper. Now grab a frying pan and put about 1 tbsp of butter, turn your fire on to medium low heat and put in your cabbage. Cover the frying pan and allow it to cook about 5 minutes, or until soft and starting to brown. Flip over and do the same to the other side.

Be creative and stuff it, eat it just as it is, along with a meal, sprinkle it with cheese and even bake it in the oven. You choose

Marshmallow tree

Look how unique, A friend of mine made it for a little party she was having and look how beautiful it looks. Very easy to make and cost efficient. Use something like this in your next party to treat your guests, as a part favor or just simply to enjoy.

Get a little simple box and fill the bottom with a square foam that fits into the box, get a skewer stick ( The same used for kebobs) and stick it into the foam square.Now get another foam piece but circular and stick to the top of the skewer. Get your different colored marshmallows and stick them each with toothpicks, stick your toothpicks individually into the top round foam of your skewer until it is full as pictured above. Lastly take your little bows, ribbons, fluff or anything you choose to use to cover up the skewer stick and the foam square at the bottom.

Thanks Lorena for this creative idea : - )

Parsley Juice

Parsley juices are great for kidney cleansing and liver detoxifications, If you have kidney stones, liver problems or just need a good detox. This is what you need to make. Parsley is really great for that. Especially when you blend it up like this causing you to have way more parsley in just a few gulps. 
It doesn't have to be a gross drink that you can only swallow holding your nose : - ) Depending on how you make it, it can actually come out very tasty and just like regular juice adding in your favorite fruits to enhance the flavor. 
Parsley water your favorite fruit (apples, strawberries, mango, pineapples, pear etc.)
Blend it all up in the blender until very smooth, taste it to see if it needs more sugar. If it is not sweet enough either add in more of your fruit or  a little sugar. If its too thick add more water. Blend until just right; then use a strainer and strain out the juice into a cup leaving out the pulp.
Enjoy From my kitchen to yours God Bless
