Personal Review: This recipe was so easy and delicious! It comes together quickly for a good weeknight recipe. I served it with brussels sprouts. I am a huge fan of buffalo wings, so this recipe was perfect in my opinion. I can’t say anything negative about it. I might have added a tad too much cheese (if that’s even a possibility!) but it was definitely delicious either way. There are all kinds of different buffalo wing sauces out there and I personally used just traditional, but you could definitely play around with it for other tastes.
Teddy Rose hosted this wonderful challenge this year. The idea behind this challenge is to read books for challenges that you’re currently signed up for. I can tell you that this challenge really jump started me back up on my challenges, specifically the Celebrate the Author Challenge (which I was really behind on). Here is what I read:
- 1st in a Series Challenge
- Celebrate the Author Challenge
- Countdown Challenge
- 2009 Read Your Own Books
- What’s in a Name 2 Challenge
I shouldn’t … I really shouldn’t, but I’m going to anyway. I’m going to join the Harry Potter Reading Challenge. Two years ago my mom and dad bought me the hardcover boxed set for Christmas right after it came out on Amazon. Would you like to know what’s sad?! I never even picked up any of the books. In the past I have read books 1, 2, 5, and 6. I have somehow missed 3 and 4 and I purposely did not read 7 … heck, I don’t even know the spoilers because I didn’t want to know! So this challenge is something that I need because I’ve been wanting to start the series from the beginning and read it all the way through. My original intentions was to do this before I saw the 6th movie, that didn’t happen. But now I’m more determined than ever to read the series in its entirety in order. This challenge will help me achieve that. So here are the rules:
Calling all muggles! Do you aspire to master the craft of wizardry or witchcraft? Well if so you can start your research here!**waves wand**
