Spicy Asian Wings

My first Throwback Thursday!

Blooming Beauty Bites

Hi loves!

I wanted to do a little Throwback Thursday for you!

Even though I posted this a few years back, I think it’s worth it to bring it back! I still make this a few times a month!

Shout out to Village Bakery for reminding me of this post!

I figured I would try something new out and post a few recipes that I love.

I tried making this spicy Asian wings sauce just for fun and ended up, I love making it now! It’s fairly easy and quick.

FYI: I usually just eyeball the measurements of the ingredients.

Ingredients:

1 lemon

1 Tbsp Sesame Oil

1 tsp rice vinegar

1/2 tsp of molasses (I used black)

1 Tbsp Kikkoman Roasted Garlic & Herbs Marinade (you can just use soy sauce)

1 Tbsp Pepper Sauce (I used Kakadu Wild Fire Pepper Sauce)

1 Tbsp Lawry’s Mexican Chile Limon marinade

1…

Bon Appetit Thin Crust Pizza Review

Happy Humpday loves!

Hope you’re all having a great week! Can’t believe it’s already Wednesday.

I was lucky enough to get chosen by BzzAgent to review the Bon Appetit Thin Crust Pizza. There’s five different varieties. I haven’t bought many frozen pizza but with this brand, I wouldn’t mind purchasing this.

  1. Mozzarella and Pesto – tangy basil pesto, sliced mozzarella and cherry tomatoes
  2. Spinaci – mouthwatering combination of mozzarella, Asiago and Parmesan cheese, spinach and a flavorful garlic sauce
  3. Pepperoni and Pesto – a bold combination of pepperoni, flavorful basil pesto and a zesty herb blend, along with Mozzarella, Provolone and Parmesan cheese
  4. Roasted Vegetables – fire-roasted tomatoes, red onion and red, green and yellow bell peppers paired with a delicious blend of mozzarella, Romano and Parmesan cheeses
  5. Trio Bacon – a decadent combination of Canadian bacon, traditional bacon and Italian Pancetta, caramelized sweet onions and mozzarella cheese

I’ve tried the Spinaci, Pepperoni Pesto and the Trio Bacon.

SPINACI: 

This one might be my favorite variety out of all five of them. Even when you open the box, you can smell the garlic and the cheeses. I’ve bought this already two times, that’s how much I love it! As it is in the oven, you can smell the flavors even more. No joke, the first time I bought this, I finished the pizza in one setting.

PEPPERONI AND PESTO:

This is my second favorite pizza available in the Bon Appetit Thin Crust Pizza. The flavors are great! Especially when sometimes you don’t want much meat on your pizza, this is perfect. The two dominant flavors in this pizza would be the pepperoni and the pesto and there’s such an equal amount of each.

TRIO BACON:

I wish I would have liked this one, but no not really. 😦 To me, it was just way too much bacon for me. I would have this once in awhile but not on a regular basis.

Where To Purchase:

I’ve seen them sold at Ralphs, Winco, Target and some Stater Bros. The cheapest place to buy it would be at Wincos, just because it’s about $3.99 and with a $1 off coupon, you’re basically buying it for only $3!

Spicy Asian Wings

Hi loves!

I wanted to do a little Throwback Thursday for you!

Even though I posted this a few years back, I think it’s worth it to bring it back! I still make this a few times a month!

Shout out to Village Bakery for reminding me of this post!

I figured I would try something new out and post a few recipes that I love.

I tried making this spicy Asian wings sauce just for fun and ended up, I love making it now! It’s fairly easy and quick.

FYI: I usually just eyeball the measurements of the ingredients.

Ingredients:

1 lemon

1 Tbsp Sesame Oil

1 tsp rice vinegar

1/2 tsp of molasses (I used black)

1 Tbsp Kikkoman Roasted Garlic & Herbs Marinade (you can just use soy sauce)

1 Tbsp Pepper Sauce (I used Kakadu Wild Fire Pepper Sauce)

1 Tbsp Lawry’s Mexican Chile Limon marinade

1 Tbsp Sweet & Spicy Chili Dressing

1 Tbsp Sriracha (this stuff is amazing!)

Black Pepper and Salt

Sesame Seeds

Garlic Salt

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat the oven at 375 degrees.

2. Mix all wet ingredients first then the dry ingredients. Mix all together.

3. Place aluminum foil on a tray. Spray on the foil a non-stick spray or butter so the chicken doesn’t stick to the foil.

4. Save half of the mixture into another bowl.

5. Dip the chicken wings into the one bowl of mixture. Turn to the other side to let it marinade for a 10 minutes.

6. Transfer the chicken wings to the tray leaving some room in between the wings.

7. Place in oven for 1 hour.

(Optional)

8. When it’s ready and cooled down, you take the other bowl of mixture and dip the already made chicken in it.

9. Relax and Enjoy!
