Italian Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings

Italian Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings

Are you a Drumette or a Wingette? I’m 100% a drumette girl! Why? Less mess and more meat. If you’re doing it right you can take down a mini-drumstick in one bite. Yeah...I got skillz.
These are great for a change up from the typical hot wings and no deep frying required, I fired up the Weber and grilled these guys in 30 min!

Ann's Eggplant Parmesan

Ann's Eggplant Parmesan

My husbands Italian and loves eggplant, he grew up with his mom making eggplant parm all the time. So it was a dish I really wanted to learn to make, I was fortunate that she was able to teach me her recipe before she passed away in 2012. Cooking is so much more than just fueling our bodies, in our house it's time together having fun. Even if it doesn't turn out like the picture or taste quite right, it's all about the effort. Besides what's the worst case scenario....it's terrible and you order pizza? :)
