2nd Annual Wing Party

This past week Tyler and I hosted a Hot Wing Party at Kilted Dragon. Last year we hosted this party at our house and we had such a great turn out that we decided the Animal Kingdom is just not big enough to hold 20+ people very well (especially when it is February and no one wants to hang outside). So, Kilted Dragon brewery was kind and let us bring in our food and they served us beer (win-win!). After Tyler proposed I had this great idea to call it our engagement party too, but then I forgot to invite more people when that changed. So to any family or friends who would have liked to go, I am very sorry! I know there will be more engagement celebrating in the near future but I apologize for focusing more on the wing part of the party than the engagement part...

So anyway, we had a great turn out and I made some super yummy wings!
Cauliflower Hot Wings with a "buttermilk ranch" dip

I modified the recipe and used Sriracha hot sauce instead of Frank's and I did not use butter for the sauce. Basically I used  1 C Sriracha, 1/3 C honey, 1 T Soy Sauce, 1/3 Natural Peanut Butter, and a pinch of salt and then I added about 2 T of all-purpose flour. I slathered it all over the cauliflower, baked it as directed in the recipe, 15 minutes in I put the rest of the batter on and cooked for another 15 minutes.

For the dip, I had been watching Pioneer Woman and she made her "Herby Ranch dip" and I had the ingredients, but vegan products. I try not to use processed foods all of the time but every now and again it is really, super helpful.

Vegan Buttermilk Ranch Dip  
- 1/2 C Tofutti Sour Cream
-1/2 C Veganaise
- 3 tsp distilled vinegar
- 2 tsp garlic power
- 1/8 C chives
- 2 T rice milk
- 1/8 C fresh oregano
- 1/8 C fresh basil
- 1/8 C fresh parsley

Mix together and dip your cauliflower in it!

Tyler made real hot wings with the same sauce:

He added fresh lime and cilantro on top

And then we had lots of fun with my family and friends:

I missed getting a photo with my parents, which is a bummer but I am sure in the next year we will have lots of good opportunities to take photos, celebrating the joining of our families. Thanks all for coming to celebrate with us!
