Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Gotta love sticky wings, right?  At least I do! In fact...my whole family does. When my son-in-law eats wings, he sucks every tasty morsel off those wings...there's nothing left! And that's how it should be..because when the wings are as good as these...you don't want to leave anything behind!!! These. Are. Awesome.

Sweet, Smokey and Spicy 
Chicken Wings

4.5 pounds chicken wings, rinsed and dried
1/2 cup honey

Beat eggs in a large bowl. Dump in the wings and toss to coat. Or put the eggs in a large zip top bag, mush them up then throw the wings in and mix.
