3 Quick and Easy Party Wings

IMG_9944 (1).jpg

It's the kick off of my favorite season today -- FOOTBALL SEASON! I am a true football girl at heart. Even though, I no longer live on the east coast, I still root for my home team (the Redskins) and make sure to catch every game here in LA! I even discovered a really fun Redskins bar in Culver City called Joxer Daly that is packed with football fans each week and makes me truly feel right at home - it's like I never left :) I've always loved football season because it indicates that fall is coming, sweaters, the crisp air, leaves changing, less outdoor parties but more cozy time spent indoors with loved ones and comfort food! The perfect fall Sunday involves good friends, cold beer and WINGS and whether you are a football fan or not, you can't dispute how tasty wings are! Jermaine always jokes that you could take any food away from him, except wings, so he was so happy when he saw me making these! He almost ate all of them before I could snap any pics! lol #ImpressYoBae

I put together not 1, but 3 different wing recipes that you can whip up for your bae, coworkers, friends or family. The recipes are so easy and are baked instead of fried, still leaving them perfectly crispy and easy to toss in a container and take with you to any party!  So tell me, between Old Bay, Honey Lime Sriracha and classic Lemon Pepper - which are you picking!? It's SO hard to choose!

PS. If you're a veggie, feel free to sub the wings for cauliflower, instead but be sure to cook a little shorter so it won't burn!
