Not bad at all

I started the new year with a Big Bang (concert "live" on TV!) and also, it seems like my suppressed domesticated side finally showed up.

My Big Bang party partner stayed up till 1 am! 

Can I just say I don't follow instructions well. At all. Especially written instructions. But when I do, my food actually turns out pretty decent. When it doesn't, my husband would have to do some intensive damage control. Or I just force it down my kids throat. Just kidding! Not. No really. Just kidding!

So my philosophy when it comes to cooking is this. The less ingredients, the better. The less steps to follow, the better. The easiest way to cook, the better!

Behold my Honey Baked Chicken Wings!

I did followed pretty much the instructions in marinating the chicken! Although I ended up sloshing everything into the mix because YOLO. Does anyone still uses this phrase or is it so 2014? Or 2009? Never mind.

In went the chicken...

And out came this...

Looks so good right! Taste not that bad either.

I guess 2015 is the year where I'll be channelling all my inner Nigella, Jamie, Gordon and whoever in terms of my culinary skills. I guess I'll let you all know when the year end comes around again.

UPDATE: Apparently my cooking prowess lasted only till the second week when I caused a power failure at home while cooking. With the oven. And my salmon wasn't even cooked yet, that's what made me even more angry.

But as what good ole Arnie would say, "I'll be back."
