Superbowl Snack: Sweet and Sexy Wings

I don’t know why I named it that. Laura and I were trying to come up with a clever title, and that one just felt right. I don’t really know if there is anything sexy about chicken wings. It seems like sexy chicks eating meat really excites people, based off those Paris Hilton and Jessica Simpson Carl’s Jr. commercials. That doesn’t really get me hot and bothered. But whatever floats your boat. Go eat that meat like a sexy b*tch. You go girl.

I think I just spent 36 minutes looking up pictures of weener dogs. It’s like I’m high when I look at them. I get a really high pitched scream/giggle and can’t stop laughing. I’ve talked about this before. But my love for them has not left. When I grow up and want responsibility, my weener dogs are going to be cute as f*ck.

I love the words totes. It’s not a real word, but I still love it. It’s MY WORLD people!!!

I’ve figured out my boobs are a great resting place for my phone. Wicked cool.

If I could have anything right now, it would be dates filled with some kind of homemade nut butter. But all I have is one date left. And I’m trapped in my house. Turns out my civic really loves being close to the ground. And the snow likes to pile up on the ground. My car is stuck. No actually, I want a date who will take me on a date and feed me dates. Is that too much to ask?

I modified this recipe just a little from one my friend made up. So I can’t call this my recipe. Her name is Juli too though. So it’s kind of like I made it up. But not really at all. She’s a badass CrossFitter though. I’m always chasing after her at competitions. And she’s had babies. Four. AND has a 10x better bod. Wtf. Maybe I should have babies JUST so I’m a better CrossFitter. I swear it works like that. Thanks for the recipe Juli! And for being such a badass CrossFitter AND mom!!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. New rule: two posts every day. No exceptions. A woman eating meat is certainly sexy, and as I said the other day, a woman doing pullups fires me up. A woman doing pullups with meat in her mouth? Never seen it so tough call. Doesn’t sound sexy but ya’ never know.

    1. That’s a lot of posts Tom. Big commitment. Remember what my job is. I kind lack the funding to post twice a day. and the social life to have stories to write about. someday tom, someday

  2. Ok so I just started following your blog recently and I have to say your sh*t cracks my ass up! And of course the recipes look delish. I can’t wait to try the avocado chorizo sweet potato skins. And now on to our mutual obsession…weiner dogs aka little low riders. Aren’t they the best things in the world? They can absolutely turn any frown upside down. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you totally have to go to the Long Dog Derby races during Oktoberfest here in Denver. It’s like 200-300 weiner dogs all in one spot in costumes and what not. Talk about sausage overload! 🙂

    1. I saw that last year Kate!!!! I didn’t get to go downtown, but drove by and was pretty much screaming in my car watching thousands of weens walkin on by!

  3. Made the S & S wings and the bacon meatballs and it is just about halftime. The plates are empty. Spectacular and delish were some of the words used, just awesome Juli! (and I was hoping for a couple bacon balls after tomorrow’s morning WOD!)

  4. Ended up having to work most of the day. Thank goodness for the crockpot and shredded meat. By the way, pork tenderloin will shred up nicely (I think I saw a question on a previous post). It needs some fat, but huge scoops of guac on top works nicely. Meatballs tomorrow, I hope.

  5. I love you. I wish I knew you well enough to make playful, snide remarks. Great recipes! I’m looking forward to making the meatballs.

      1. I suppose when phrased that way they do, but if I add -ly, which was supposed to accompany playful to begin with. Well, then it works quite well. Typing fail thanks for watching my back, JB!

      1. So it has to be some sort of alcohol? That’s too bad, since I don’t touch the stuff. I know that it’s different when you cook with it, but with alcoholism in the family, I just don’t want it around. Thanks for your response Juli, I appreciate your time.

        1. Lol dear lord Ellen, i completely read that first comment wrong. I’m so sorry!! Instead of red wine, you could just a little red wine vinegar. Or just some juice instead!! Sooooo sorry, i can’t read at certain times of the day.

  6. I can’t find aminos of any kind. I asked th grocery store clerk and he stared at me like I was speaking German. What part of the store is it in.

    1. I found it in the Asian aisle by the soy sauce and teriyaki sauce. Tamari would work too but it’s not really Paleo, but it’s gluten free.

  7. I was just wondering what kind of red wine was used in this recipe…was it cooking wine or any of the drinking wines? Its not super bowl but its the start of college football and I need some great tailgating recipes…and i refuse to tailgate like s**t anymore….Paleo tailgating here I come…Thanks

  8. I made these delicious little wings last night for a girls night. There were only two of us following paleo so I made “regular” wings as well. Needless to say, i have about 30 of the regular wings left and non of these. They loved them!!!! These will definitely be a regular on my menu.

  9. Hi I don’t have coconut amines – can I use coconut oil instead? Making tonight a nothing in the fridge otherwise

  10. So I just now saw this recipe and was so excited to find that I had coconut aminos in my pantry! I remember seeing them at the store and thought “huh, why not?” and hadn’t done anything with them since.

    The only thing different is I had chicken legs instead of wings, so the cook time is probably longer. I hope they turn out as good as your photo looks. T-minus…I don’t even know. It’s been 15 minutes so far. I’m drinking wine, though, so everything’s gonna be awright.

  11. Hey Juli…have you ever done these in the crockpot? I want to try it out, would you just throw it all in there the same way?

  12. These are in the oven now : ) do you want me to rotate each wing, like flip them, or rotate the actual baking sheet? Thanks!

  13. OH.MY.GOD…I made these for my extremely picky family members for a super bowl snack and everyone LOVED them. So delicious and so happy to add this to my paleo recipe collection 🙂

  14. if i want to make these for use at a later time, would i cook them first, then freeze them. or toss them in the sauce, then freeze, then cook in oven when ready for use?

  15. I made these last week and they look nothing like the photo.

    How do yours look all red and delicious. I did cut the honey a bit, so does that make the red “stick” more to the wing?

    They also look more charred like they were on the grill. Mine look like baked chicken and don’t seem super flavorful.

    Help, Juli!

    p.s.: You’re hilarious.

    1. Not sure what happened. You could finish them off under broil for a few minutes next time (keep a close eye on them, broil makes things happen quick!).
