Bottega’s Chicken Wings Agrodolce

I have a celebrity chef crush on Michael Chiarello.  I don’t know what it is about chefs that gets me all giddy and nervous when I see them…but to me they are like royalty–far better than some Hollywood A-Lister.  I mean, I never really gave two cents about Bobby Flay until I saw him in person and my reaction completely shocked me.  You would have thought it was George Clooney walking by!  I was weak in the knees, my heart was racing and I nearly fell over {thank heavens the shoulder of my four year-old was closeby} when he looked me dead in the eyes and said “Good morning”.

Thanksgiving

This year I’m spicing it up and stressing it down!  I’m making barbequed turkey, jalepeno-sausage dressing, fancied up green bean casserole, cumin-roasted butternut squash with goat cheese and pepitas and a part gravy-part BBQ sauce that will really jazz up your holiday meal.
