My husband loves chicken wings! Every game on TV is the perfect time to serve them is a philosophy he lives by. These chicken wings were served as the Patriots climb their way up the playoffs. Hopefully I will have to come up with a new recipe when the Pats make it to the superbowl!

  1. I really like the Bento Box. It would be nice for my work lunch. The bowl scrapers are also really nice. Love mine.

  2. I love my veggie peeler, seems simple I know but I’ve used TONS of crappy ones and love that mine isn’t!

  3. i love the mini measuring beaker set.. they are so cute. those sesame pecan wings look so delicious.. i have to try to make them. thanks for the recipe!

  4. I have an OXO vegetable peeler that beats ALL of the ones I”ve used in the past. The handle is easy to hold and it does a great job every time.

  5. I am a huge kitchen gadget & dishes collector lol. I love it all. I really love the stainless mixing bowls!

  6. I love the hand-held mandolin slicer! So need one. I’m gluten free, so this would be great for slicing veggies for me.

  7. My favorite OXO product is the 3 Piece SteeL POP Container Set. However, I love so many of their products and they withstand time.

  8. My favorite OXO product is the Chef’s Mandoline Slicer. It has both straight and wavy blades and can be set to any slice thickness.

  9. I like the avocado slicer. I always make such a mess when I try to slice with a knife. Good thing I like guacamole!

  10. I love, love, love the Avocado Slicer! We are a vegetarian family and eat them all the time, it would be great to have one of these!

  11. It’s the salad spinner I have and all I have to do is push the button instead of cranking it around. Love it.

  12. Stop the presses! I just realized that I *do* have a favorite: The OXO mini measuring beakers are cute as can be and they work great. I love them!

  13. I use OXO tools in my kitchen every day, and each one is perfect for its task. How can I choose one favorite? I’ll go with my newest: The OXO Salad Spinner. It doesn’t get the lettuce quite as dry as I’d like, but it’s simple to use.

  14. We love our Oxo mandoline! It’s basic, but it gets the job done, plus it’s dishwasher safe! Major bonus for me!

  15. I like the salt and pepper grinder.. I would love to use fresh whole pepper instead of already grounded pepper, and we have Himalayan salt at home but no grinder for that either

  16. It sounds to me like those wings are good luck and they may have to be served at all ensuing games. Fortunately they look delicious, Jennifer!

  17. I love their three piece mixing bowl set. The bowls have a rubberized bottom so the bowl does not slip on the counter. There is also a lip which is a handle. Thank you for the super giveaway opportunity. Keep up the terrific blogging.

  18. I love OXO brand and have several of their good grips in my kitchen drawers. I am going to enter! The recipe sounds really good too! I think it’s a great Super Bowl Sunday one to try.
