I do a lot of really dumb things in my kitchen that get me burnt, cut or injured in some way, shape or form. But this is definitely a first……
Several weeks ago, I decided it was time to make hot wings. Not that I had ANY idea how to cook them mind you. But I REALLY like them. I was REALLY craving some. And I REALLY didn’t wanna go out to get them!
This is how I decide what’s worth my time to learn how to cook.

No, I’m not a chef. In fact, if you ask those who know me best they will flat out tell you… I don’t even like to cook. There are, however, a few recipes I don’t mind making here and there, as long as I can find someone willing to do the dishes and help with clean up.
Lasagna is one of those recipes I finally figured out (and it turned out great if I do say so myself!).
So, for those of you “non-cooks” like me, here’s a fairly simple one that turns out really well and actually impresses people. …
