As part of the Urban Scandal series, I’d love to introduce you to one of my favorite things to do: Cook. I’ve loved it since I was a kid. I remember thinking my Easy Bake Oven was child’s play when I was 8. I would cook a fresh meal every night if I could. Around 2 am last night, I attempted to master Pico De Gallo.
Tonight’s meal includes Smokey Sweet Chicken Wings, which I found on the Steamy Kitchen. This is my second time making the wings, and my family loves them. I like my wings “hard”, so I bake them for an extra 20 minutes, then broil them for a minute or two on each side. I also added an extra half cup of brown sugar and a bit more of the seasonings. (Find the recipe for the wings here)

The Sauteed String Beans were an experiment. I used to get them every couple of weeks when I was in NYC. A few months back, I figured I’d attempt to make them. All you need to do is sautee an onion and a clove (or two, depending on your taste buds) of garlic in olive oil. Add fresh string beans (with the ends cut off), salt, pepper and your favorite seasonings. The trick is to boil the string beans for just a little while (a minute or two) to slightly soften them. Combine the beans and onions on medium high to high settings. This will brown your string beans and give them the most delicious flavor!
