I Brought These 2-Ingredient Wings To A Party, And They Were Gone In Minutes

I Brought These 2-Ingredient Wings To A Party, And They Were Gone In Minutes

If you’re a fanatic for chicken wings, this recipe could change the way you approach them for the rest of your life. Not only do they require only two main ingredients besides the chicken themselves, you probably already have the ingredients in your home – especially if you’re a football fan. These wings, come from a recipe published on the Cooking with May Lynn YouTube channel, not only look delicious, they offer a sweet and salty flavor that you’re going to absolutely love – and so will your guests.

So what are the main ingredients? Coca Cola and soy sauce. Yes. The main ingredient in these delicious chicken wings is America’s favorite soda. Although it might sound strange at first, it’s not as bad as you’d think given that the main ingredient in Coke is sugar. When you pour the can of Coke into the frying chicken most of the liquid will cook off, and you’ll be left with a delicious, flavorful caramelization on the chicken. The soy sauce adds even more flavor and color.

You’ll need half a can of Coca Cola, some soy sauce and salt to taste.

First lightly cover the chicken wings in soy sauce. Let them sit for 15 minutes. Then fry for five minutes. Flip and let fry some more. Then pour the half can of Coke in and let it boil off.

The YouTube video recipe has gotten nearly five million views at the time of this writing. And hundreds of comments have been shared that show just how popular this twist on traditional wings is.

May Lynn wrote the following description about the recipe on the YouTube video: “Coca-Cola is a good ingredient to cook with when you are making a meal with chicken wings. With a combination of soy sauce and this soft drink, you can turn your chicken wings into a savory salty-and-sweet treat. This is, like most of my other videos, extremely easy to cook and delicious. Enjoy!”

Some of the most popular comments on the video include the following:

“People can try this dish at home. Trust me, it is delicious.”

“I made this tonight, and everyone loved it. Thanks!”

“I think this dish looks delicious. And it’s easy to cook. Perfect for busy people out there.”

“It’s so easy that I successfully made it on my first attempt, and it tastes so good too!”

Although many people loved the idea of using Coca Cola as one of the two main ingredients, other at-home chefs suggested some alternatives.

“Or how about you just add brown sugar and save the coke for the drink with the wings? Same color, same taste. The main ingredient in coke is sugar anyway. And please, stop saying ‘I guess’ after every other instruction. If you second guess yourself, I’m not going to take your advice.”

“I add soy sauce, ketchup, and brown sugar to mine. It tastes sweet and salty too. You should try it with brown sugar next time. I suppose it would have the same flavor since according to some study coke doesn’t actually have a distinct flavor. Plus sugar is healthier because of no random preservatives.”

After Learning This Simple Trick I’ll Never Serve Another Brown Avocado Again

After Learning This Simple Trick I’ll Never Serve Another Brown Avocado Again

There’s almost nothing as satisfying as cutting open an avocado to find it perfectly ripe inside, a beautiful shade of green, and oh-so-creamy. There’s almost nothing worse than cutting an avocado open and discovering that it’s brown and putrid. Thankfully, there’s a genius avocado hack that is simple enough and will ensure you can keep beautifully ripe avocados on hand at all times.

It might be something you’ve never even considered. Did you know that you can freeze avocados and they hold up beautifully? Yeah. Neither did we.

If you’ve ever used half of the fruit and tried to wrap up the remaining half and put it in your refrigerator for later use, you’ve likely been very disappointed to find it already severely browned when you unwrap it the next day.

Worst of all, if you miss that perfect window of ripeness, you not only miss out on that perfect taste and texture, you’ve also taken a monetary hit because avocados are typically pricey.

You can easily freeze avocados and everything you need to know is in this video. Jodi Brown shares this tip which is especially helpful if you buy a large quantity of the items on sale and can’t use them quickly enough.

First, clean the avocados and slice in half to prepare them to be frozen on a cookie sheet. Scoop the insides out and place them face up on the sheet, making sure to include the dark green part close to the skin. Jodi explains that you’ll want to freeze them separately because if you put more than one in a bag, they will clump together and be difficult to pull apart for single uses.

Freeze the scooped avocado on the cookie sheet for a couple of hours or overnight and remove with a spatula if they stick before placing them in a plastic bag. They can then be used anytime you don’t have a fresh avocado on hand. You can use them still frozen and add to a smoothie or defrost the fruit and use in guacamole or other recipes.

Among the many comments left on social media were those who offered their own tips, was one person shared: “Let them ripen on the counter and then put them in the fridge until you’re ready to eat them. They stay perfect for at least a week. You’re welcome.”

Another person noted: “I do this, but backwards. I put them straight in the fridge and pull them out one or two at a time to sit on the counter to ripen and eat. Works great for us.”

One commenter offered this helpful hack: “My husband and I used to make huge batches of guacamole any time avocados were on sale and freeze it in a 3-4 person serving size in Ziploc baggies with all of the air sucked out. People’s minds were blown when we would have guac on hand all the time. Defrost on the counter or in the microwave for a little bit. Not too much because warm guac is weird!”

My Neighbor Showed Me A New Trick To Make Box Cake Mixes, And I’ll Never Do It The Old Way Again

My Neighbor Showed Me A New Trick To Make Box Cake Mixes, And I’ll Never Do It The Old Way Again

Most people love baked goods but don’t always have the time or knowledge to create their own bakery type items from scratch. No worries — here’s a hack that turns out amazingly delicious cakes and is so super easy, you’ll be baking cakes all the time. It does involve a cheat — a cake mix — but it’s what you add to it that makes the final outcome sheer perfection.

It’s called soda cake and this quick and easy baking secret was recently revealed on a Facebook page. The post read: “Soda cake. No eggs, no oil.”

It’s literally a cake mix and soda, what could be simpler? The post gave these non-challenging instructions as well: “Just add a can of soda to the cake mix and bake per directions on the cake box. That’s it. Done.”

There isn’t even any measuring involved! It’s perfect for anyone short on time and looking to dirty the fewest dishes possible during their baking process.

Of course there’s just a tiny trick and that is knowing which soda to pair with each prepackaged cake mix. They give a total rundown on which things combine perfectly, removing any guesswork from the process.

Here are the best combinations:

Strawberry shortcake cake mix and cream soda
Ginger spice cake and ginger ale
Devil’s food cake and Diet Coke
Chocolate cake and root beer
Lemon cake and Sprite
Cherry chip cake and Dr. Pepper

Others added their own ideas, with one person noting: “cheap vanilla cake mix with cream soda is the best!”

The soda hack isn’t just for cake mixes either, as it can be added to scones to make them lighter.

Another post on the cake and soda trick noted: “It would appear that no cake recipe is as easy to follow as the one printed on the back of a cake mix box. But there is something easier, dear cake-lovers. Swap all but the cake mix for a bottle of soda. Stir 12 ounces of a carbonated beverage into your prepackaged cake flour, plop the mixture into a pan and bake it in the oven as directed on the box. There you have it: cake.”

Among the many people who commented on the baking hack was someone who noted: “I’ve tried this several times. Comes out so moist! You can use just about any soda with any mix! Give it a try!”

Another commenter shared this different spin: “I have done the orange crush (diet) and white cake mix and baked as directed, nothing else… let cool and cover with cool whip and everyone loved it.”

On the Daily Mail‘s coverage of the baking trick, people made a case for homemade over boxed cake mix, with one person sharing: “I make cakes from scratch from cookbooks the traditional way. Cream the butter and sugar then add eggs and mix. Next the self raising flour and milk are added and mixed. Cakes are so easy to make properly and you can control how much sugar is used. I usually halve the amount of sugar stated in the recipes because there’s not much different in taste but huge difference in sugar intake.”

How McDonald’s French Fries Are Made And Why You Should Never Eat Them

We all know fast food is unhealthy, but it’s also cheap, convenient, fast, and pretty tasty. At the same time, we have to understand that all those benefits come with some pretty awful downsides.

For a long time, the fast food industry has been under scrutiny for the quality and safety of its food.

After all, how much actual chicken is really in a chicken nugget?

Recently, an investigation conducted into the making of McDonald’s famous french fries took place, and its results have people absolutely shocked.

Essentially, it’s been revealed that all of this chain’s fries are sprayed with an incredibly toxic pesticide that is so harmful that the fries cannot be safely consumed until six weeks post-spray.

This investigation dug deeper and revealed this fact after the french fries sold by McDonald’s were found to contain substances that can cause cancer and even brain damage in a discovery that came to light just recently.

The man behind this revelation is none other than Michael Pollan, who is a journalist, author, professor, and activist who works at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism.

To better understand what goes into these fries, he’s explained exactly how McDonald’s fries are made.

To begin with. McDonald’s only uses a very specific kind of potato in order to make their fries.

This potato is known as the Russet Burbank potato, and they have a very thin, uniquely long shape that is responsible for creating the appearance of the McDonald’s fries we recognize.

They’re quite difficult to grow, which is exactly why these pesticides have to be used in the first place.

Essentially, Russet Burbank potatoes often grow with a certain defect that is known as net necrosis.

You may have seen it yourself in other potatoes, where small spots or brown lines are visible.

McDonald’s is simply not interested in these defective potatoes, even though these blemishes won’t actually cause any harm to consumers – they’re merely aphids, and they are far from dangerous.

Unfortunately, McDonald’s doesn’t accept this explanation. But there’s only one way to completely prevent net necrosis: by destroying aphids.

And the only way to do that is with Monitor, a kind of pesticide that is almost ridiculously toxic, to the point where farmers who use these pesticides will not go into their fields for a whole five days once they’ve used the chemical.

The worst part? These pesticides don’t fade away very quickly.

After the potatoes are harvested, farmers have to store than in gigantic sheds with atmosphere control because the potatoes simply cannot be eaten for the next six weeks.

They have to be carefully off-gassed to get rid of these poisonous chemicals.

Monitor, which is also known by its other name methamidophos, comes with its share of shocking side effects.

There have also been many cases of poisoning as a result of Monitor exposure, often recorded in farmers and workers who use the chemical or in those who eat foods that haven’t been properly cleansed of it.

The symptoms of poisoning from this pesticide are pretty nasty.

I guess that gives you one more reason not to eat food from McDonald’s!

Watch Pollan’s full explanation of his findings in this video below.

Share away, people.

If You Bought Melon Recently, The CDC Wants You To Throw It Away Before You Get Sick

If You Bought Melon Recently, The CDC Wants You To Throw It Away Before You Get Sick

Beware of supermarket melon, the CDC is now warning. Right on the heels of the romaine lettuce E. coli outbreak, now consumers have to be cautious of the melons they buy, specifically pre-cut melon. While this grocery store option has been convenient for anyone who wanted to pick up fruit that was cut and ready to serve, now you might want to go for a full uncut melon and do the work instead.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced the multi-state outbreak of salmonella linked to pre-cut melon in a June 8 press release. The culprit is pre-cut melons, including watermelon, honeydew melon, cantaloupe, and fruit medley products that might be contaminated with salmonella.

Salmonella is a bacterial disease that contributes to 1.2 million illnesses, 23,000 hospitalizations, and 450 deaths in the U.S. every year, with the CDC reporting that about one million of these annual cases can be linked back to contaminated food sources. Symptoms of salmonella are not pleasant and include fever, diarrhea, and severe abdominal cramps that can last up to a week.

The recalled products were distributed to Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, and Ohio for the following stores: Costco, Kroger, Payless, Owen’s, Sprouts, Trader Joe’s, Walgreens, Walmart, and Whole Foods.

For this particular recall, according to the CDC site, the fruit producer is Caito Foods, LLC, based out of Indianapolis, Indiana. The website notes that “recalled products were sold in clear, plastic clamshell containers.”

Additionally, the site notes: “The FDA has a list of stores and states where recalled pre-cut melons and fruit salads were sold. The recalled products were sold at many different stores and carry many different labels.”

60 people in five states have reportedly been ill as a result of this recall, with more than half requiring hospitalization for more severe symptoms. No deaths have been reported. “Most of the ill people reported eating pre-cut cantaloupe, watermelon, or a fruit salad mix with melon purchased from grocery stores,” the CDC website explains.

The CDC further breaks down the cases of illnesses reported as follows: “Illnesses started on dates ranging from April 30, 2018, to May 28, 2018. Ill people range in age from less than 1 year to 97, with a median age of 67. Sixty-five percent are female… Illnesses that occurred after May 20, 2018, might not yet be reported due to the time it takes between when a person becomes ill and when the illness is reported. This takes an average of 2 to 4 weeks.”

The CDC recall information advises the following: “Do not eat recalled products. Check your refrigerator and freezer for them and throw them away or return them to the place of purchase for a refund.” They also note that if you don’t remember where you purchased your pre-cut melon, it’s best to just throw it away and not take a chance on possibly getting sick.”

One commenter who viewed the news story covering the recall noted that you should always wash produce, recommending: “#1 rule is to always wash melons. There are some great natural organic sprays out there, too. When you cut an unwashed melon, bacteria is on the knife and carries it throughout the melon.”

Another commenter responded: “No need to buy a spray cleanser. Vinegar and water does the trick and is very inexpensive.”

The USDA Just Recalled 6.5 Million Pounds Of Meat. Here’s What You Need To Know

The USDA Just Recalled 6.5 Million Pounds Of Meat. Here’s What You Need To Know

A farm in Alabama was recently forced to recall thousands of containers of eggs after a salmonella outbreak was detected in their supply chain. But they aren’t the only food producer faced with a similar fate today. The USDA and the CDC have separately released meat recalls for two infections, one for listeria and the other for salmonella. Both of these recalls are of the utmost importance to consumers.

This particular recall is no small thing. The grocery stores carrying this meat have now been instructed to remove millions of pounds of meat from the shelves in order to protect their customers.

One death has already been reported for this specific outbreak. The deceased became infected with listeria after eating ready-to-eat deli ham from North Carolina.

The ham has been shipped all over the east coast, but that’s not the only infected product. 57 people have been reported with salmonella poisoning due to infected ground beef across the country.

Officials have specifically instructed companies to recall 6.5 million pounds of beef from Arizona, and 89,000 pounds of the Carolina ham.

The ham infections all occurred more than two months ago, but officials say that their investigation is ongoing. They are urging consumers to be wary of all prepackaged deli products for the near future.

Listeria is no joke. It causes listeriosis, which causes the infected to suffer from diarrhea and intense fever. In the worst cases, it can eventually result in death.

The infected meat is sold under several different brand names, so you might want to write these down. They include Johnston County Hams Inc.  Country Style Fully Cooked Boneless Deli Ham, Goodnight Brothers Country Ham Boneless Fully Cooked, and Padow’s Hams & Deli, Inc. Fully Cooked Country Ham Boneless Glazed with Brown Sugar.

The listeria-infected ham is just one side of this dangerous equation. The beef products from Arizona are infected with salmonella, which also leads to similar symptoms. People have become infected in 16 states so far, and officials hope that the recalls will prevent that number from growing even higher.

The beef is also sold under several brand names. These include Walmart, Cedar River Farms Natural Beef, Showcase, Showcase/Walmart, and JBS Generic. Keep an eye on your meat and make sure that none of these contaminated brands are in your fridge or freezer.

Each contaminated package lists the USDA inspection number as EST.267. Double check all of your products if you want to keep yourself and your family safe from infection.

The severe issues arise when diarrhea is uncontrolled for several days. The contaminated person can become dehydrated and at that point may need hospitalization to recover.

Every regular consumer of grocery-store meat needs to be aware of the recalls and warnings that come up every now and again. These stores are not perfect, and sometimes a contaminated product can slip through the cracks. You can never be too careful when it comes to the health of your family.

If You Drain Pasta In Your Sink Stop Doing It Right Away And Never Do It Again

If You Drain Pasta In Your Sink Stop Doing It Right Away And Never Do It Again

Add this to the list of things we thought we knew, but didn’t.

When it comes to maneuvering my way all over the kitchen, I can boldly say I do pretty well for myself. However, that doesn’t mean that I’m not open to learning something new. The truth is that a lot of tend to do so well with the basics, but then go completely blank when the more advanced options come into play.

One of the things I love making the most is pasta. While it is simple, it is extremely tasty. A lot of us have certain flairs when it comes to making this dish, but if there is one thing that we can all agree on, it is the fact that you need to drain the pasta before it is ready to be eaten.

When you go to a lot of kitchens, you’ll find a colander. The pasta is originally supposed to go into the colander, then the water that was used in boiling the pasta is supposed to be drained away.

Well, if you’ve been doing this- and there is no doubt that we’ve all done this in the past- you need to stop immediately.

As it turns out, the cloudy pasta water that ends up going into the drain can be referred to by some people as “liquid gold”. Apart from the cooking of your pasta, this water has another use; apparently, it can be used to elevate the sauce that you pour over the noodles.

When the pasta is being cooked, the noodles’ starch is released into the water. That presence is one of the reasons for its cloudy appearance. If you think the water is unfit for everywhere, well you’d be very wrong.

The pasta sauce is what makes it so fantastic, and it is important for you to have a silky, smooth sauce that will be in just the right consistency.

The water from the pasta can be used or emulsification. Here is its importance:

Emulsification is capable of making a difference in the taste and reaction of the sauce. This process holds the water and the oil, so you don’t end up with something looking soggy.

If a ladle full of water is added to the sauce, it will do much more than just add the water and oil. The sauce will also be thickened and it will improve the taste of the sauce.

According to an experiment conducted by Serious Eats, this new method of cooking pasta actually does make a difference in taste. To wit, make sure to keep the following in mind when next you go making pasts with this new knowledge:

Don’t add oil. When you add oil to the pasta, you’ll make it greasy and the grease will most probably stick with the noodles.

Use sufficient water. Make sure to use enough water to boil the pasta. For every 250g of pasta, make sure to use 3L of water.

Quit the draining. Also, don’t drain the water in the sink. You can remove the noodles from the water with tongs or a pasta fork. Then, you can ladle some water into the sauce to elevate it.

Make use of the strainer. If your pot comes with its own strainer, then just lift it out after the noodles have been cooked. The liquid gold will remain, and you can use it at your discretion.

Apart from cooking pasta, these tips can also be used when cooking other starchy foods.

You’re welcome.

This Is What Will Happen To You If You Eat Two Eggs Every Day Right When You Wake Up

This Is What Will Happen To You If You Eat Two Eggs Every Day Right When You Wake Up

There was a time when eggs got a bad rap for being unhealthy and high in cholesterol. The thinking on that has changed and eggs are now at the top of their game, so to speak. They’re an excellent source of protein, which can be more satiating than a bowl of cereal for breakfast, and they make a perfect quick snack in their hard boiled form.

They’re also versatile enough to round out a salad of greens or can be chopped up for egg salad, plus it’s trendy to get a salad or other meal topped with a poached egg for an extra healthy bit of protein.

Their versatility is only half the story, however, as there is no longer a fear that eggs will increase a person’s cholesterol. And for such a tiny package, they’re packed with all kinds of good-for-you things, such as:

  • Vitamins: Egg yolks are high in vitamin A, B vitamins ( B6, B9 and B12), vitamin D, and vitamin E, all necessary for fighting disease and giving your skin a radiant glow.
  • Minerals: Eggs have iron, zinc, and calcium for healthy bones, blood and an improved immune system.
  • Protein: We already mentioned that eggs are a protein powerhouse, which is excellent for metabolism, tissues, hair, and muscle building, but did you know a large egg has 6 to 7 grams of protein?
  • Choline: Adequate choline consumption helps with improved liver function and assists with brain development in fetuses and children, even preventing neurological defects in babies. An egg yolk provides a great source of choline.
  • Omega 3s: These are great for healthy cholesterol levels, lowering blood pressure and fighting body inflammation, as well as helping with brain health and immunity.

If eggs sound pretty great, there are even more areas where they can help you out.

  • Fertility: The protein and vitamins in eggs, as well as the choline and omega fats, help with a woman’s fertility. Plus, eggs contain the hormone progesterone, which is necessary for healthy ovulation.
  • Vision: Eggs contain Vitamin A, lutein and zeaxanthin, all helpful for eye health and the prevention of macular degeneration. Additionally, Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) can prevent cataracts.
  • Weight loss: Eggs are satisfying because of their protein content, so pairing eggs with vegetables can keep calories low and help you avoid snacking.
  • Cognitive Function: Eggs also contain phospholipids, fats that might help with combatting memory dysfunction and Alzheimer’s.

Bottom line: while they were once thought to contribute to a person’s cholesterol, eggs no longer have to be limited or eliminated from your diet. It is recommended, however, that you pair them with healthy grains, fruits, and vegetables, for a balanced meal, and avoid using a lot of grease of butter in your cooking.

Dr. Peter Schulman, MD, a cardiologist and professor of medicine at the University of Connecticut, told Health: “If people are trying to lose weight, the most important thing is to eat a good breakfast. If you eat a breakfast that’s only high in carbohydrates and no protein, you’re going to be hungry again very quickly.”
