This is an old recipe from my first blogs on WordPress from when I was 14. This is a great and still a delicious recipe. That I hope you all will give a try.

Yes you read that correctly, these are blueberry and ginger glazed wings. The odd combination of blueberry and ginger taste great on these wings.Me and my mom were trying to come up with a sauce to go on these baked wings, and since my mom went to the west side market yesterday and picked up some blueberrys ginger and wings we thought this would be a delicous recipe to try and make.

What you will need:

For the wings

1 1/2 lbs of wings

2 teaspoons of seasoning salt

1 teaspoon of pepper

1 tablespoons of butter

2 tablespoons of olive oil

                                               Preheat Oven 400 Degrees

First start off by heating your olive oil and butter in a saucepan or skillet just until well heated.Place your wings on your baking sheet and pour your olive oil and butter mixture on your wings. Add your seasoning salt and pepper to your wings, toss around with your hands.Put your wings into the oven and bake for 25 minutes flipping your wings when golden.

For the sauce:

1/2 pint of blueberries

1/3 cup of vinegar

1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes

2 tablespoons of chopped onion

1 tablespoon of minced ginger

Water

Salt

Powdered Sugar

Heating your saucepan to medium high add all of your ingredients, when the mixture comes to a simmer reduce your heat. Cook for about 10 mins. Add your blueberry mixture to a food processor pulse until smooth add 2 tablespoons of water and a pinch of salt, taste  and pulse again until smooth. Using pour your mixture into a sifter or strainer you only want to liquid you can pulse the blueberries in the strainer again and add a little more liquid. Once done pour blueberry mixture back into you sauce pan. Back on the heat add your powdered sugar add to taste if you like more of a sweeter glaze add more if you want more tart add less.

Take your wings out of your oven pour your glaze over them toss and serve! Enjoy!

The Man In The Brown Coat

During my trip to Pittsburgh Saturday and walking through busy crowds. I spotted a older man. He was homeless. I couldn’t help but stop and look at him while trying to find the change I just received from self check out at CVS.

I wasn’t staring at him as if he was a strange animal or what he did to get there but the first thing that came to mind is that I wished I had a better coat to give him and he must be freezing. It had to be 40 degrees and windy. Once I finally gave him the change I found I couldn’t help but to feel my heartbreak a little.

Busy crowds just walking pass and ignoring another human being. I just can’t begin to understand how this world has become so self centered that they can’t even give someone a dollar or change for the person to buy food. And to be completely honest I didn’t care what he used the money for. Because now it was his. Unlike what some people stereotype homeless people as being drunks and only using your money to buy alcohol.

I didn’t and still don’t care. I don’t care what he uses it for. All I do is hope and pray he is okay. Having all that being said, I know I’m suppose to be happy I was able to help someone who were at their “lowest.” But I find myself still be happy and sad at the same time that I wasn’t able to do more.

Life Update: Moving to Pittsburgh, High school, Hair Dying, Food Posts

Let me first start off by apologizing for being inconsistent. Alot has been going on for the few months. Me and my mom are in the process of moving to Pittsburgh where my sister is currently attending college.

I’ve visited Pittsburgh a few times, and its quite something to get used to. Its a nice place but boy was it crowded. I thought Cleveland’s lunch hour was bad, i was wrong. The streets are also very different from Cleveland as there are shops on every corner. From Macy’s to Sally Beauty Supplies they all sit on corners in walking distance.

I know its probably not of that big of deal to most of you because maybe  your city is set up that way but..I have to catch the bus or drive to get to those places as those stores are only located in the suburban areas…But i have to admit i am looking forward to the night life along with the jobs there every store had a wanted or “we’re hiring” sign.

I also hope to tour there culinary schools also. Since i need to start doing college tours anyway. Also there are a lot of hot and cute men, and boys there. I’m not exaggerating. Anyway Speaking of hot and food..(sorry if I’m rambling) my apologies for not having food posts in months.

I’m currently staying with my grandparents, and I don’t have a camera right now. I’ve missed posting terribly. As i been making specular dishes not posting to share with you all then consuming all the calories…*laughs to self*  I do have a phone camera, but its an android and the quality isn’t enough for my site.

Along with the moving process i also been trying to keep up with school from new teachers and loads of homework and state testing. Sine being a junior which hits me every now and then “woah I’m a junior” and I just sit in shock to think how fast high school is going

I don’t know if i ever mention on my blog but i hate state testing or ogt testing.. here in Ohio we go to assigned testing sites take 2 hour tests spring and fall and wait to see if we passed. I passed everything except social studies and math. I was very close to passing my math test as I was only twenty points away I think with my social studies it was only ten. With these state standardized test you have to get exactly 400 points nothing over or under.

One of the girls at my last testing site was only one point away and they failed her…..you sit for 2 hours to take a multiple choice, explain your answer, create a story just to miss one question then to fail…and have to take it over. Geez huh….I going to stop talking about school now as I’m getting more stressed..

Anyway I’ve been doing some crazy things with my hair you guys. I dyed it pink and purple which i loved. Then dark blue, then to a blue turquoise green It was an awesome color very bright and neon.

I definitely stood out… along with dying my hair i also been wearing it in its natural curly state every now and then since cutting out any chemical processes.

I need to wear it more often as it will help with my already ”heat damaged” hair but i will talk about my hair in another time and probably in another post.

Until next time

Peace xxxx
