I have to admit something: A big part of the reason that I like to cook semi-healthy is to support my sugar habit. If I can whittle calories from savory foods, I won't even hesitate. But, nearly all of my desserts are full-blown whirlwinds of sugar and fat and all the deliciousness those two nasty ingredients bring to the mixing bowl. So, of course, when I found a recipe for a healthified version of buffalo wings, I jumped all over it.
And then I forced our friends to guinea pig it with us over New Years. Know what? It's darn good. Darn good! It's all the yum of buffalo chicken without the skin and the deep-frying. Plus, you get to make it in a crock pot, so it's pretty easy to haul to a Super Bowl party and serve up. And then dig into the cookies and cupcakes. You have my blessing :)
