In my last post I made a version of Piri Piri Wings for a friend who can’t eat garlic or onion. When guests come over, can really serve them only one variety of wing appetizer? I guess you could but who would want to. So, I did a version of Salt and Pepper Wings that used the same garlic infusion as the Piri Piri Wings. Continue reading Lloyd’s Salt and Pepper Wings
