Baked Smoked Paprika Chicken Wings (Adapted from Damn Delicious via Domestic Fits)
2 – 4 servings
–   3 pounds chicken wings
–   2½ tablespoons olive oil
–   3 teaspoons smoked paprika
–   3 teaspoons light brown sugar
–   3 teaspoons garlic powder
–   1½ – 3 teaspoons chili powder
–   1½ teaspoon onion powder
–   1¾ teaspoon kosher salt 
–   1½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 425˚F. Line 2 baking sheets with foils or parchment papers.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, smoked paprika, brown sugar, garlic powder, chili powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  3. Pat dry the chicken wings with paper towels. And mix them well with the paprika mixture.
  4. Place the chicken wings on the prepared baking sheets in a single layer. Bake in the oven 15 minutes. Then turn the other side and continue to cook for another 10 – 13 minutes until cook through. Transfer the wings to a serving plate. Serve immediately.
  1. Regular paprika is NOT smoked paprika. It doesn’t have much flavors. Smoked paprika has a sweet and smokey taste which can’t be substitute. I got my smoked paprika in a regular supermarket on the spices section.
  2. The original recipe comes with a dip, but I found the chicken wings very flavorful and juicy by themselves. No dip is needed.
  3. There are about 30 small wings in 3 pounds of chicken wings. It is just right for 2 people for dinner if chicken wings are the only dish.
  4. For the chili powder, 1½ teaspoon is perfect for mild. Adjust to your own taste.

Hough Bakery - butter cookies

Hough Bakery By Gail Greenberg&Diane Rolfe Hough Bakery was an integral part of me and my family's lives, (most people in Cleveland for that matter) I was heartbroken when they closed. I have always remembered the cookies and doughnuts from this magical bakery. Their products were like nothing I had ever had before (and it was extra magical because I was so little/young) I have been searching for about 30 years for something similar - no luck... but, thank goodness there are a few recipes floating around the internet! Unfortunately even with Archie's being open, my food afflictions will not allow me to enjoy those old time favorites. Luckily, converting is what I do and that's what this site is about so I will switch some things around and see how it turns out! The recipe below is just ONE of my all time favorites, please enjoy! Memories of a signature blue-and-white, string-tied cake box filled with a streusel coffee cake, hot cross buns, sticky pecan rolls, coconut cho…
