  • Fix Mr. Food's wing sauces on game day

    Remember Mr. Food? He used to have recipes on a local TV station during the noon news. I wrote down two of his recipes for sauces for chicken wings years ago, and they're quite good (and easy.)

    The wings in both recipes are baked, not fried, and can be stored in the refrigerator after baking, then warmed and tossed with the sauce at party time.

    Try one of these on your football fans next game day!
