Virginia Willis' Cola-glazed Wings Image Credit: Jaden Hair This is a recipe that I return to time and time again -- it's a friends and family favorite, and the entire plate gets devoured every time. That makes me a happy cook! Instead of deep frying wings (though I love that, too), it's more convenient to bake or grill them. I'm always perplexed on what to do with a big vat of oil after deep frying. Grilling the wings gives them a nicely charred flavor and crisp bits that will delight any barbecue lover.

The Best Oils I love to lightly sauté, roast and toast veggies, grains and nuts. I also love to drizzle flavorful oils on salads and raw veggies. I’ve heard a little of this and that about the best oils to use for different styles of cooking, but I wanted to be sure so I researched it a little deeper. What I found is very interesting.

They had all kinds of delicious looking homemade brownies. Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes Recipe As I mentioned on Friday, I have been doing some experimentation with the beer and chocolate combination. The Guinness-chocolate ice cream that I made totally kicked butt, so I couldn’t wait to see how I liked beer and chocolate in my cake. The answer? I like it, a whole heck of a lot.

Cajun Chicken Pasta Note: Since this recipe is featured on the Food Network episode this morning, I’m bringing it to the front for easy reference. This really is one of my favorite recipes here on The Pioneer Woman Cooks, and I regularly hear from people who’ve made it with great success. Crowd-pleaser! This is an exceedingly yummy, decadent pasta dish with chicken, vegetables, and lots and lots of scrumptious carbs.

Different Cajun spice mixtures use different combinations of ingredients, but if you stick to basics like cayenne pepper (important!)
