Chicken wings are classic American bar food, but if you're like us you want to be able to eat chicken wings while still controlling the remote. It's easier than you think and a deep fat frier isn't required. Grab an extra napkin and [maybe] some celery and join us for hot wings.
With the economy in recession a lot of people are cooking at home more frequently. That means more grocery store visits than in years past and as we all know it's easy to go way over budget if you go in unprepared. We've got a series of tips coming up, but we're throwing in one of the biggest money savers in first: rotate your proteins based on the sale at your preferred store. It sounds simple, but grocery stores frequently use one or two proteins as loss leaders to get you into the store. If you plan your meals around what's on sale you will save serious cash. A great side benefit is you won't get into a rut because you'll end up buying different cuts every week.
Chicken and yellow rice is one of our favorite Cuban comfort foods. In areas with large Cuban populations you can find yellow rice packages in the supermarket, but we prefer to make our own. This recipe departs from tradition in that it's technically a risotto, but keeps all the same great flavors (along with the texture that risotto is famous for). We add black beans to make it an entire meal in a bowl.
