Chicken wings and yammy potato au gratin--The perfect dinner!
If you love wings, but the thought of making them at home gives you the shudders, try this recipe from Samuel Adams. You can make the brine one day ahead. Drop the chicken wings into it the next morning, then take them out and cook them that night. The meat will be moist and succulent.
You can pair the wings with fries, veggies or the accompanying yam and red skinned potato au gratin, also from Samuel Adams.

C’mon, it’s a New Year, step up to the plate with a new cocktail to celebrate 2015.
New Year’s Eve is upon us. Lots of us, me included, are excited to see the back of 2014. The New Year is going to be a bright and shiny one. A new year filled with possibilities, laughter, hope and joy. You’re planning on bringing in the New Year with a bang, so why would you drink the same old cocktail? This New Year’s Eve add some spice to the year with the Spice Box cocktail. Raise the temps with a bit of heat with the Hot Tot Martini. Give a nod to tradition with the new Eggnog Martini, or get sentimental and raise a glass of traditional eggnog to say “buh-bye” to the old year. Go daring with the French American 75. As the clock turns to 12, try the Raspberry Lemon Drop.
Here are cocktail recipes crafted by Chef Michael Symon, STK Atlanta, and top mixologists Russell Davis, Jay Silverman, Douglas Derrick and H. Joseph Ehrmann!
