Happy New Year!!
So the first day of 2009 is coming to a close and although I have completely recovered from a throbbing headache, I still have no voice. My family and I enjoyed a fantastic spread which included hot wings, dungeness crab legs, my mom's mean greens, shrimp ceviche with mango, quesadillas, meatballs, and deviled eggs accompanied by prosciutto wrapped asparagus. I knew one of my resolutions would include a promise to excercise more and all that blah blah blah, so I indulged myself more than a little bit. We really didn't try any new wines but for the official toast we popped a bottle of Segura Viudus Brut Reserva champagne.
I'd really love to share an appetizer recipe to start off the new year, but guess what? I didn't cook a thing. What I did do was create a hot wing sauce to go with the wings my mom cooked. If you enjoy spicy like I do, try this one when you get the chance and let me know what you think:
Kisha's Triple Pepper Wing Sauce
one bottle of Red Hot hot sauce
1/8 cup of Italian salad dressing
2 Tbs of butter
1 tsp crushed red peppers
1 tsp crushed or minced garlic
3/4 tsp West African Hot Pepper
1/4 tsp Melinda's ground Habanero peppers
1/8 tsp ground ginger
Warm all of the ingredients just until the butter melts, stirring frequently. You can either pour this directly over your wings or use as a dipping sauce.
