Around here, Football Sunday is a big thing and snacks are not optional. When we haven’t baked up a batch of these wings, we’re enjoying a Classic Seven Layer Dip or dipping into a bowl filled with super addictive Ranch Nuts ‘n’ Bolts.

Sometimes, I think in order to be successful, you have to recognize your faults. Once they are clearly identified you can start to formulate a plan for self improvement. You have to dig deep, think hard, and with all sorts of blood, sweat, and tears you CAN come up with the goods to succeed.  Are you worried yet? Didn’t you just come here for the wings?

Have no fear, this post about Gochujang Wings isn’t going to get too deep or reverential…I just want to let you all know that I have identified a clear FAULT within my blog and that fault is I had no damn recipe for WINGS!!

They aren’t that difficult to make and they’re much better for you than the frozen pre-made kind. Oh yeah, and they are definitely teenager approved.

      See? Sometimes, you have to think about these things…they aren’t always obvious. I need many more appetizer type posts as well.

      You too Natalie! If you do decide to give these a try, you can customize the gochujang, buy regular for a slightly spicy wing or hot gochujang for HOT wings.
