Ultimate Hot Wings

Sumer may almost be over, but guess what? Football season is starting September 4th. Admittedly I’m not much of a football watcher, but I do love to participate in all the gatherings and tailgating.

With that, I’m going to pump up the season’s kickoff with these hot wings dipped in my killer apricot-jalapeno mustard sauce. The key to hot wings are a crispy skin and a great sauce.

Artisan Bread-Making

I don’t know what it is about Fall, but it’s essentially bread making season for me. I’m the first to admit I’m not the most patient person, but when it comes to bread making, I love the process.

Granted that love comes with actually understanding the principles of bread making. The very first bread book I ever bought was Peter Reinhart’s The Bread Baker’s Apprentice. And to this day, it’s still one I refer to.

Coffee Macarons

If you love coffee, you are going to love these coffee macarons. The shells are chocolate and the filling is a ganache infused with coffee extract and finely ground coffee beans for an added kick in flavor and with just the slightest crunch.

These might be the simplest looking macarons I’ve ever made. But simple is good sometimes and sometimes it’s necessary when life gets chaotic.
