Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

Italian Style Saucy Chicken Wings

These savory - and very messy - wings make for a wonderful appetizer or light dinner with crusty bread and green salad. Any fairly smooth meatless sauce - either commercial or homemade - works well in this recipe, as does pizza sauce. I like the added boost of the garlic and herbs to commercial sauces, but if you have a really flavorful homemade sauce, you can just use that with excellent results. These wings can be made ahead of time and reheated and they also freeze very well.

2 cups favorite spaghetti sauce
3 minced garlic cloves
1 teaspoon crumbled dried Italian herbs
1/4 cup dry red wine
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 pounds chicken wings

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and lightly grease a baking sheet. Mix together the spaghetti sauce, garlic, herbs, wine, and cheese in a large bowl. Add the chicken wings and toss well to coat. Pour the wings onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 45-50 minutes, basting the wings with the sauce and flipping them over twice as they bake. Serve hot or at room temperature.

Makes 6 servings.
