I’ll be honest, I’m not the world’s biggest football fan but boy do I love “football food.” Combine that with my hometown spirit and football season gets a little more bearable. One of my favorite game-day finger foods is chicken wings. I know they’re super popular to order in but you guys, they are SO SIMPLE to make at home – even in bulk.

The hardest part will be choosing your favorite sauce and, of course, fighting over the last one. Give it a try and let me know what you think. Oh and P.S….go Browns!
