Healthy Blue Cheese

Hey, friends! Here is a quick little recipe for a healthy version of blue cheese. I know when I cook healthy versions of my favorite wings and fries, I don’t want to ruin the nutrition of it all with a fatty blue cheese…because I LOVE LOTS of it! What’s more is that no one will make your food as healthy as you can because you know exactly what you put in your food in terms of quantity and ingredients.

Hope you enjoy!

Cheers to tasty and healthy dipping sauce!

Honey Sriracha Wings

Honey Sriracha WingsSo, the other night I was craving wings so badly…specifically sweet and spicy wings. I didn’t want to buy any wings (just off of vacation so I had had enough take-out), and I didn’t want anything too complicated to make. So, I remembered a headline I saw a few months back for honey Sriracha wings. That was all I needed to begin my quick culinary adventure!

They came out super crispy, sweet and spicy. Yummers! While you can fry these wings naked and sauce them or fry them breaded and sauce them, they are just as tasty  (and healthier) when you bake the chicken then sauce them.

If you would like a healthier version of blue cheese, there is a quick recipe under the H. Grey’s Kitchen category of posts.

Cheers to eating well and loving what you eat!
