For me, when I’m trying to eat a little better, snacking is the toughest part. Because snacking itself isn’t bad, and helps curb hunger between meals and can aid in preventing over-eating when meal time comes. Unfortunately, so many foods we think of as “snacks” are packed with carbs and additives that actually increase appetite and sabotage our overall health.
To fight this, I have a few quick snacks in my back pocket that are satisfying, delicious, and super quick to make. My Bee Sting Chicken Wings are at the top of that list, and take less than ten minutes to make! The key is to use wing flats and cut right between the two bones, separating each wing into two pieces. They cook so quick, and you have more surface-to-mass ratio, which means more flavor in every bite.
Thanks for the wonderful recipe. The dish was very quickly prepared and the whole family liked it.
I love those shallow white bowls! Do you have a source?
Thanks for the post! I’m excited to try this one!
That looks amaaaazing. All of it! I’ve just finished eating a late afternoon snack of hot tea with some plantain chips and half a grain free brownie, and now you’ve inspired me to also eat a huge plate of salad! Yum.
Can you tell me about sourcing fresh chicken wings? I haven’t ever cooked them in my life… think I’ve seen them in frozen bags with tiny drumsticks or something. Is this a normal thing in grocery stores? I have a bit of an aversion to cutting raw meat and tend to buy cuts I can put straight in the pan/crock pot/grill/cut with scissors over the pan but I think I would be willing to give it a shot for this dish.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
