Buttery Garlic Shrimp Pasta (Perfect for the Holidays)

For dinner I made a buttery garlic shrimp pasta. I have to admit I have been wanting pasta lately and my little one really enjoys it. It’s also an excuse to make it more often. First of all it’s easy, quick and very filling. Pasta is definitely a dish for those busy school nights. On top of that, the shrimp cooks in just about the same time your pasta cooks! I made this dish with the thought I could make it for Christmas Eve or Christmas. Pasta and seafood are dishes I lean towards for the holidays. Maybe because they are comforting dishes. Garlic Shrimp Pasta is easy but can be made as fancy as you want it!

How To Make Chicken Wings (The Easy Way)

Last week I posted Everything But The Bagel Drumsticks. In that post I explained how to make drumsticks and my favorite dry rubs. This week I decided to show you how to make chicken wings, the easy way. I notice many people bake their chicken wings in sauces or fry them. Frying chicken wings are so delicious but the house smells and too much oil! I like to BROIL my wings and then add the sauce. You get a nice crispy and brown wing. Plus you get all the flavors in the sauce, without burning your wings! Add the sauce at the end and still get all the flavor! They are so good and easy to make! No need to guess if they are cooked through!

You won’t need anything but this seasoning to get all the flavor, all in one bottle!
