Chunky Apple Cake with Browned Butter Frosting
This cake was amazing. Although, I made a couple changes. First, I substituted pecans for the walnuts. (Georgia girls love their pecans) The only other change I made was instead of using the browned butter frosting, I omitted the butter and made a powdered sugar, vanilla and milk glaze. It was lighter, not as rich and sweet, and was perfect with the cake. I will definitely make this again.

Hot and Spicy Chicken Wings
Ewwww... I love hot wings, but these didn't turn out the way I thought they would. They were soggy. Not a bit crispy. They burned on one side. Way too long in the oven at that temperature. The marinade was wonderful. Had I skipped the whole bisquick step and put them in the oven out of the marinade, they would have been great. Next time, I will not use the bisquick. I love bisquick, but in this case, not a good choice. I've been making hot wings for a long time and have always gotten great reviews. I thought I'd try something new, but it didn't quite work. I will say, though, this is the first Betty Crocker recipe that has failed me. I'll keep trying new recipes....just not this one.
