This is one of my very favorite recipes and I’ve had it for many years (as you can tell from the photo of the recipe here):
This recipe is great for almost anything. Super Bowl parties. Taking to a potluck. Serving your family and friends at almost any time. And, as I love recipes (or food) with stories, this recipe comes with a story.
Once upon a time, a very long time ago, my Aunt Susannah (my mom’s baby sister and a year younger than me) worked as a teacher. Now she is a principal. But all this long time ago, one of the things she did with her students was to cook. Good for math because you have to figure out how much of the ingredients you need; good for spelling because you have to write out the recipe; good for socializing because you have to work with others.
This recipe is Laura’s recipe. I don’t know Laura, only know what Susannah told me about her all those long years ago, and that was that she was a special needs child but that she made her chicken wings with the help of her aid, and they were a huge hit. I had them at Susannah’s shortly after that class and fell in love with them. She gave me the recipe to copy and, as you can see, I’ve used it a LOT! Every time I make this recipe, I think about Laura and how, because of that class, she (and I) learned to make these amazing wings.
