While I prefer treats a little less sweet, I needed something rich, chocolatey and impressive to please my in-laws. As tempting as they are fresh out of the oven (who doesn’t like warm, gooey baked goods!?), they’re even better completely cooled! The intensity builds the more they sit out. I’m sure they’re amazing the next day, but brownies never last long enough in my house!

I love chicken wings. Who doesn't? Chiles are a no-go for me, so I opt for the heat of ginger and a little lime. If I'm headed for a picnic or potluck, these are my default, along with a big chopped salad. I also often make these at home for movie ni...
