Man Food: finger lickin hot-ass wing sauce, YOU’LL NEVER ORDER WINGS AGAIN

So, everyone loves a good hot-wing.  Wings (my personal favorite) are so delicious that I could eat them everyday, but some restaurants are really inconsistent; one day they’re good the next day they’re really bad.  With this really simple wing sauce recipe, I promise you’ll want to put it on everything: it’s THAT good!

Ingredients

1 bag of frozen chicken wings

1 stick of butter

1 cup of hot sauce (whatever brand is your favorite)

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)

Basil (optional)

1 tbs honey (optional)

Bowl of "Wings"

Chicken

Fry the chicken without any salt or flour: just plain. Fry the chicken until the skin is completely crunchy; don’t burn it though.  I guess you could bake the chicken too, as long as the chicken turns out nice and crunchy.  If the skin is not crunchy, the chicken is going to be nasty.  Make sure your oil is really hot before you try to fry the chicken.  An easy way to check if oil the hot is to take a tiny pinch of flour  (if you have it) and drop the pinch into the oil.  If it sizzles, then the oil’s ready. If it sinks to the bottom, the oil’s not ready yet.

Sauce

Start the sauce at the same time you start frying the chicken.  Add one stick of butter and one cup of hot sauce in a sauce pan.  My favorite hot sauce is Louisiana  or Tabasco   If you don’t think the hot sauce will be hot enough, add a half teaspoon of cayenne pepper.. Let the butter and hot sauce combo simmer for 30-45 minutes.Keep the pan on low, and  Don’t forget to stir it about every seven minutes.

The sauce will go through three phases:

Phase one: butter and sauce will be melting together.

Phase two: butter and sauce will appear to be nicely melted together.  You’ll think it’s done but it won’t be.  Let it simmer a little longer.

Phase three: the oil from the butter will separate and rise to the top.  That’s when the sauce is done.

If the sauce is too acidic for you, add a tablespoon of honey to it, or three tablespoons of brown sugar.

Once everything is done, pour the sauce over the chicken. Be sure to stir the sauce as you pour. You can sprinkle some basil on top for taste, after that, go H.A.M!

I had an interesting discussion with my friend about my sneaker and suit post.
The truth is some dress shoes are very comfortable. In fact some dress shoes are equally, if not more comfortable than sneakers. So I wanted to post about one brand that does it well.
Cole Haan is one brand I can fully endorse. Using sneaker technology created by its former owner Nike, Cole Haan combines style and comfort.
Below Taye Diggs sports a pair of Cole Haan Cooper wingtip oxfords ($280).
I love these shoes!

Every women has a pre-date playlist: a playlist of songs that make her feel sexy, irresistible and powerful.  So guys, I know you have some songs that are a MUST for you to hear, whether you’re going out with a new girl or out with friends.  With all the rituals that come with going out and having a good time, consider adding these throw-back joints to your list of confidence- boosting jams

Diamond In The Back-William DeVaughn

This song has been covered many times, but the original is my favorite version.  This song is really smooth, it’s the perfect jam to get dresses to.  It makes you feel cool; like you are “the shit.” It has a really sexy, beat and the lyrics are dope.

Flashing Lights- Kanye West

okay, so this isn’t really a throw-back, but its a hot song. This song will definitely make you want to “stunt” when you put it on.

Beautiful People- Chris Brown

This song Rings Bells all over-the-place.  It’s really fun to listen to.

Crew Love-Drake

This is one of the songs that you and your crew listen to on the way to where ever you’re going; cuz doesn’t every one have luv for your crew??? I thought so:)
