I wanted to have chicken wings and drummettes were on sale. My first problem is She Who Must Be Obeyed just isn’t into hot wings. So, I experimented. Serves her right. Continue reading Chili Soy Chicken Wings
I make a nice teriyaki sauce but sometimes you need something on hand for a quick meal. I bought some Kikkoman Less Sodium Marinade and Sauce. Continue reading Kikkoman Less Sodium Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce, Made a Nice Salmon

Two improvements I wanted to make to it were a finer more emulsified texture and a little more moist without adding a lot more fat. So, I decided to experiment.
