I am a newlywed on a budget, just trying to make healthy and inexpensive meals for my husband and I to enjoy. He eats a lot, so cost is a big factor. Though I work 3 jobs, I manage to find time 6 nights a week to cook a full dinner for us both. I am constantly looking for new recipes that are moderately healthy, taste great, and won't break the bank.

On the side, I also own a brownie business called Gersheybars. My passion and love for cooking started when I was just a small child, baking with my mom and grandmother. The brownie recipe has been passed down through 5 generations and I am thrilled to finally have an outlet to share them with everybody else. Friends and family have helped spread the word and made my business as successful as it is today.

Chinese Chicken Legs

Yet another wings recipe while on our chicken wings kick. These are saucy and sweet, with a tad bit of spice. They're messy to eat, super tender and exactly how wings should be. Very easy to prepare with minimal effort. The original recipe is from WW Simply Delicious and the only change I made was to use wings instead of drumsticks.

  • 8 scallions, coarsely chopped
  • 1/3 cup prepared barbecue sauce
  • 2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon chili paste or hot pepper sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 1/4 pounds chicken wings
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line the bottom of a broiler pan with foil.

2. Combine scallions, bbq sauce, soy sauce, oyster sauce, honey, sugar, ginger, chili paste, and garlic in a large bowl. Add the chicken wings and toss until well coated.

3. Place the chicken on the baking pan. Spoon any remaining sauce over the chicken. Cover loosely with aluminum foil and bake 20 minutes. Remove the foil, and continue baking until the chicken is browned and cooked through and the sauce is thickened, about 20 minutes longer. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
