HCB #8: Sweet Hoisin Wings

I loved this! The celery and green peppers offered a freshness and crisp texture to these sweet SAUCY wings! It was definitely finger- to- elbow licking-lip smacking GOOD!

Wings go great with crudités but, I only had celery and green pepper so I had to make magic with limited ingredients. Lucky for me I LOVE both vegetables so I wasn’t worried.
B’s Crudités Salad:
Chopped celery and green pepper into miniature matchsticks
Dried cranberries,
Garlic/Peppercorn vinaigrette
Toss em all together, and voila!
Did you know? Crudités are traditional French appetizers comprising of sliced or whole raw vegetables which are dipped in a vinaigrette or another dipping sauce. Crudités often include celery sticks, carrot sticks, bell pepper strips, broccoli, cauliflower, and asparagus spears.

The wings:
5 chicken wings cut in two
Garlic-chopped finely
Ginger-chopped finely
Secret spice blend
Rice wine vinegar
Hoisin sauce
A lil sugar for love!
Did you know? Despite the literal meaning of “seafood,” Hoisin sauce does not contain fish. Traditionally, Hoisin sauce is made using sweet potato.
Happy cooking!

MARC JACOBS BISCOTTI tempts the senses with its savory aroma and a touch of citrus. Uniquely delectable and crisp, biscotti is the perfect pick-me-up. This comforting and refreshing interpretation is unique and beautifully surprising.

Developed by Richard Herpin of Firmenich, this citrus floral treat opens with the tempting aroma of freesia, bergamont and orange flower, the heart of pistachio blossom imparts a sweet richness. Creamy and soft vanilla add balance and a smooth softness.

The warm golden tint of MARC JACOBS BISCOTTI captures the sensation of taking the first bite of a sweet biscotti cookie.
