From The Kitchen…and a few other things

It’s national margarita day!  And I am meeting a friend to drink one or ten.  I do love me some margarita! 

Check out this link: Link so see what I had to say about the Fleet Feet Stroller Group.  It was posted on their blog!

Today was a Frog N Kiwi day for Sky and I.  Rain and wind all day, but she needed out of the house for some play time. 

  She loves the slide so much!!!!
Not much running the last few days.  Still dealing with blisters and pretty bad bruising on the bottom of some toes.  Wanted to take it easy before doing a 6 mile run Sunday.  Plus the crap weather kind of sucked the desire to run right out of me.  I’m glad I have 6 miles planned with Elya though…somehow knowing we are going to be getting rained on together makes it so much better!  I did get some Tracy Anderson, and some Pilates in the last few days though. 
Now, for a new recipe.  This was so good we had it two nights in a row!!!  Try it!!!   

Crispy Baked Orange Chicken Wings Recipe


#pin-wrapper > A { BACKGROUND-IMAGE: none }


For the chicken:

2½ pounds chicken wings, tips removed, drumettes and flats separated
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

For the sauce:

1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger (used ground ginger powder the first time, fresh the second and we liked the powder better)
2 1/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes, or more to taste
3/4 cup orange marmalade (I used fresh squeezed orange juice instead of marmalade, didn’t want it to be too sweet)
1/4 cup hoisin sauce


1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.

2. Rinse wings and drumettes and pat dry. Transfer to a large bowl and toss with vegetable oil, salt and pepper. Position wings on baking racks in a single layer ensuring that wings aren’t touching.

3. Bake, rotating pan half-way through, until fully cooked, 45 to 50 minutes. Remove wings from oven and transfer to a large bowl.

4. Add the sesame oil and olive oil to a small saucepot over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and ginger and cook, stirring, for about 3 minutes until golden brown.

5. Add the red pepper flakes, orange marmalade and hoisin sauce, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.

6. Pour the orange sauce over the wings, tossing to thoroughly coat, and serve immediately.
Have a great weekend and go drink some margaritas!!!
