Food, Fun and Face!

Welcome to my blog! I'm starting this blog to add some spice to some of your kitchens! I follow a primal lifestyle which basically means I eat a whole bunch of vegetables, good meats, some fruit, nuts and seeds and a little dairy. I avoid eating all grains and try not to eat processed food and limit the amount of sugar I throw down my throat. Basically the name of the game is to eat REAL FOOD. Sounds simple right? But sometimes people find it hard to start to eat this way. So this blog is here to help you (and me) throw together some awesome tasty food . So please stay a while and get your creative kitchen juices flowing again!!

Buffalo wings!

Some of you may know that I love going to the states. When I'm there I love eating buffalo wings. Which is just simply  chicken nibbles in hot sauce.

The only place in Auckland that you can eat proper buffalo wings that taste just like they do in the states is from Dos Amigos Mexican Cantina in mission bay. I highly recommend this place. They also do amazing ribs! (Which I'll do a post on, some time in the near future!)

I was getting sick of paying for the wings and thought I'd try and make them myself.

I did some research and found out that the sauce they use is simply a bottled sauce from a brand name called 'franks' which they get from the states.

Believe it or not all the ingredients in the Franks hot sauce are primal! So I looked to see if anyone in Auckland sold this bottle of buffalo wing gold.

One place does. It's called Martha's Backyard. Address is 114 Lunn Ave, Mt Wellington.

This place sells a whole bunch of American foods and sauces and clothes. Anything American that you can't get here she will get it in from the states for you.

So I got me a bottle of the Franks Original Cayenne Pepper Hot Sauce and went home immediately to make my wings.

Here's what the bottle of sauce looks like:



To make the wings I got about 1 to 1.5kg of chicken nibbles form the butcher and popped them in the oven on a high heat for about 30 mins. Turn every so often to get them golden brown all over.

For the sauce all you need to do is melt 1/3 cup of butter in the microwave then add 1/2 cup of the Frank's hot sauce to the melted butter.

Once your wings are cooked put in a bowl and pour the sauce over and toss, and that's it my friends.


If you don't want to cook that many wings then just decrease the amount of sauce and butter to go over them.

These ones tasted like the real deal. Stoked!
