Salt and Vinegar Wings

If you are looking for the perfect Memorial Day recipe, I got chu! These Salt and Vinegar Wings are the perfect party food! Show up to a BBQ with these and everyone will be your BFF! But watch out because they are super addicting!

Salt and Vinegar really are the perfect combo. So much so that its kinda a problem! I am obsessed with S&V chips and I thought it would be fun to add a little twist to those flavors. Thus these wings were born! And I couldn't be happier about it! They are crispy, tangy, and salty. All the best things!

Salt and Vinegar Wings-

20 Chicken Wings
Arrow Root Powder
Malt Vinegar
Corse Sea Salt

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl toss the wings in just enough arrow root powder to coat them. Place wings on a baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes. After 25 minutes flip the wings and let them cook until both sides are crispy. In a large bowl toss the wings with the Malt Vinegar and Sea Salt to taste!

Cucumber Lemonade

It's finally feeling like summer and you know what that means... weekend camp trips, late night convos under the stars and cucumber lemonade (normally this would say Prosecco but you know, we have to modify things for the pregnant lady this year)! I must say that a splash of Prosecco in here would be so delicious! Go crazy!

There is nothing more refreshing than a huge glass of lemonade on a hot day. But you know we aren't grabbing for the boring old basic. We are taking it up a notch with this boujee take on the classic! And yeah, yeah, yeah... we know how extra we are and we love it!

Also can we just talk about how annoying it is when you forget to take out your butter to let it get to room temp?!? This recipe was struggle city when it came to that. I forgot to get the butter out and then I forgot to get my cream cheese out! Heres your reminder! Go take them out. Ok, enough with the drama! On to the recipe...

Mom's Banana Bread

Don't we all have that one recipe that reminds us of our mom!? For me it is this banana bread! Its one of those recipes that no matter who else makes it, it never tastes as good as when your mom makes it!

Even the smell reminds me of her! There is nothing I love more then walking into my parents house and smelling fresh baked banana. It is the perfect balance of sweet and buttery. Every bite is like a hug for your mouth.

Mom's Banana Bread -

1 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Butter Softened
2 Eggs
1 1/2 Cup Mashed Ripe Bananas (About 2 Large Bananas)
1/3 Cup Water
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
1 2/3 Cup Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Cup Chopped Nuts (Optional- Mom always used walnuts)

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom of a loaf pan (I always use butter... because duh!). Mix sugar and butter in a large bowl. Add eggs until blended. Add bananas, water, and vanilla. Beat for 30 seconds. Stir in remaining ingredients. Pour into the baking dish. Bake for about 55-60 min or until you can insert a toothpick in the middle and it comes out clean.
