  1. Simple Steak and Shroom Dinner

    Just the right bite for me! Thank you.
  2. Ghost Tiger Wings and Pig Candy Thang

    Always enjoy your stories and pictures, and even though I'm not a fan of heat on wings, these look tempting. And bacon candy, always! Waiting for the money/entry shot too, but what's not to love?
  3. Chicken Shawarma on the Red Kettle!

    I mean, just WOW! What a feast not only for the tummy but for the eyes! Always fun to cook for company, but you set the bar waaay up there.
  4. Tsunami Wings and Stuffed Grilled Wontons

    I would say that's wings and thangs defined right there!
  5. Ice storm startup

    Well, this has got to be a prize-winning cook for effort!! And the finished result looks pretty good too. Hats off.
  6. Bone in Pork rib roast tonight

    Shouldn't there be a WOW! emoji? That's what I say.
  7. That is one beautiful salad! I thought you were having a blizzard today, but glad you got outside to do the guru.
  8. Introduction

    Welcome to the forum, and we look forward to you letting us know what you're cooking. Get those pictures coming!
  9. A Wing and a Pear

    Well, thanks, sometimes people don't "get" me and my love for words. But my husband has been anticipating the meal ever since I told him my plan, so that helps.
  10. A Wing and a Pear

    I probably should mention that I didn't post a picture of the chutney separately because it doesn't look like much, but it's delicious and my husband loved it all. I mixed it in with the rice when we reheated our dinner.
  11. A Wing and a Pear

    We love teriyaki wings and sauce, so I decided to find a grilled pear chutney recipe to make it "a wing and a pear" entry. I grilled the pears and made the chutney last week as it is supposed to sit a few days to blend, and today between rain storms I finished up the wings. I had a bag of frozen party wings and parcooked them from frozen in my pressure pot. While they were still hot, I put them in the teriyaki marinade for several hours, and when the rain let up and I could get a fire going, I grilled them off over pretty much an open fire to get the char I wanted. I basted as I grilled, and then finished with a sauce drizzle, the sesame seeds and green onion . The pear chutney went on the jasmine rice, and just added an Asian chop salad for a fresh element. Not too many preparation pictures as the teriyaki sauce was pretty basic and I can post the pear chutney recipe later if anyone is interested. So here it is, the April Challenge Wings and Thangs!
  12. Sunday Baby Backs

    When I saw your name on the cook I knew it would have to be good, and wow! what an outstanding rack of ribs!!
