I have a little confession…..I was never much of a Buffalo Wing lover.  I tried my best for years, hanging out in bars with friends pretending to be on the wing band wagon but I could only eat about 3 wings total before having my fill. Needless to say, I was cheap date on 10 cent wing night. My bill would be 30 cents and a beer….but we always split the check evenly so I was, pretty much, paying for everyone else’s wings and would always leave the bar totally starving.  When you’re broke, in your twenties…that’s not always a great situation.

Fast forward a few years when I met my, now, husband. He’s kind of a wing master…not the kind who excels at making fabulous wings but the kind that can sniff out the best wings around.  So, after years of visiting a variety of establishments that served wings not fried into a crispy, dried out jerky….but prepared to a tender, meaty heaven with a crispy outside…I learned to LOVE those little morsels of happiness. What I didn’t love was 1) the fact that they were fried and 2) the fact that they were fried. Yeah, the frying kind of ruined that love affair.
