Cooker of Deliciousness!

Cooking hasn’t always been a passion of mine.  Honestly, until I hit my 30’s I never cooked much more than a frozen pizza. That all changed when I bought my first charcoal grill in 2010.  It was a Weber kettle and even though I had no idea what I was doing, after using it the first time, I became fascinated with grilling.  I was eager to learn how to get better at it.  That morphed into wanting to experiment with cooking all kinds of things.  I am not a chef or an expert at anything, but I love to cook.  I mess up all of the time, but that failure just makes me work that much harder to make it better the next time.  Thank you for checking out my website and I hope you can take something useful away from the content I create.

“Trashed” Wings

"Trashed Wings" originated in St. Louis, MO and I had them for the first time last summer. Made them at home less than a week after that and now they are a semi regular menu item around our house. They are easy to make, here is how you do it! Note: They are called "trashed" wings bc your oil will be trashed after making them due to cooking the already dipped in buffalo sauce.
