Franks Red Hot Healthy Wings

A few years ago my daughter, Tink, made us a pizza using Frank's Hot sauce. She marinated the roasted chicken in Frank's and used the marinated chicken as one of the toppings.... I loved it!! Hense, this healthier recipe using Frank's! Enjoy!

Baked Tuscan Bread Soup

post signature

Wee Bear and I have spent a lot of time over the years in Europe on vacations, whether it be skiing, cruising, road trips or just renting a house for a while. By far our favorite soup is a Tuscan vegetable soup. In Tuscany it is called Ribollita which in Italian means reboiled or reheated and simply refers to it as left over vegetable soup. It is delicious in cold weather and light enough in calories that I can safely put it into the "Figure Friendly" category, sans the bread! The recipe looks humble, however, this recipe blew us away! Just look at these pictures! The soup is gently simmered and baked and the bread ends up almost like a dumpling, breaking apart in the savory broth. Wee Bear had to stop between spoonfuls and proclaim how much he loved it!

Coriander Lime Wings

post signature

Here is the 2nd recipe in my series on healthy chicken wings. This one reminds me of my time in Jamaica, the lime brings back good memories from our "Pig's, Limes and Pepper's" business! The Caribbean flavor is a take on "Jerk" seasoning, but mild.
