BBQ Wings

BBQ wings and legs.jpeg

I have to admit it—I had never made BBQ wings before! The time had come to make what I’ve always enjoyed eating. And it was so worth it! With my busy schedule, I used one of my favorite BBQ sauces and doctored it up to save needed time. Just follow the easy directions. The spice rub is a great one—use it with baked chicken or fish recipes. The Smoky Paprika makes this spice rub perfect for the BBQ wings. I had some drumsticks and threw them it too! Mouthwatering taste. Perfect for that special Purim meal, watching your favorite team or for a great meal any time! Recipe is below.

The Borrowed Boy.jpg

Angie is at the bottom of her life. Diagnosed with cancer, no item on her bucket list fulfilled or even thought of, she has missed being loved—no marriage, no children, no grandchildren. Then, suddenly on a train to  a seaside village, Jaywick, the doors and Fate close, and Angie and 4-year-old Danny, alone, unloved and frightened, are handed a different possibility.

Hidden identities push the plot forward, add to the The Borrowed Boy's tension and ask the question who these individuals really are. There are many surprises in the answers in this wonderful novel by Deborah Klee!
