Fantastical Friday: Over 75 Bangin' Buffalo Chicken Recipes

The Super Bowl is coming up and that means that everyone is all about appetizers, finger foods, snacks, and WINGS. I personally prefer boneless wings and like 'em hot! Instead of a traditional Super Bowl food round up, I decided to feature Buffalo Chicken specifically and go for all sorts of courses - appetizers, side dishes, main dishes - all featuring the amazingness of Buffalo Chicken!

Also just because of the theme - I have to ask you readers - do you eat buffalo anything with ranch or bleu cheese or some other white cool sauce/dip? I didn't realize how common it was 'til I made the round up. We eat buffalo stuff without a cooling sauce of any kind. Just straight up spiciness!

Over 75 Bangin' Buffalo Chicken Recipes | No need to enjoy buffalo sauce on just wings, this roundup is full of all sorts of non-wing buffalo chicken goodness! #SuperBowl #buffalosauce #chicken #recipes

Candy Bar Pudding

Candy Bar Pudding | Homemade chocolate pudding that can be paired with your favorite candy bar! #dessert #recipe #chocolate #pudding

I have never made homemade pudding - like no box mix. I actually think the amount of times I've actually made box mix pudding as an adult is only 1 or 2. I digress... I saw this pudding and thought it looked amazing. I made it with Butterfingers (which if I remember correctly is how the original blogger did), but really you could pair it with any candy bar - Baby Ruths, Twix bars, Milky Ways, Reese's cups - nom nom! I used fresh whipped cream, but I definitely think I'll go the Cool Whip route next time.

Buffalo Chicken Pizza Sticks

Buffalo Chicken Pizza Sticks | These simple ingredients will come together to blow your mind! #maindish #pizza #recipe

Sometimes the simplest of recipes become my absolute favorites. They just surprise me. There is nothing terribly special about the ingredients but when they come together...WOW WOW WOW. I wish I could do a killer Christopher Walken impersonation...but that's how I think that in my y'all should too :) I have a fever and the only prescription is more buffalo chicken pizza sticks!!

I used my go-to pizza crust because that's what I do. It's never failed me. I used Frank's Buffalo Sauce because I think it's the very best buffalo sauce in existence - I've tried quite a few and haven't found anything that rivals it. This recipe uses two different types of cheese, as well. You just end up with something so amazing, you really honestly will not believe how good these pizza sticks are!

Fantastical Friday: 34 Weeks

Fantastical Friday: 34 Weeks update #pregnancy #thirdtrimester

How far along are you? 34 weeks
How are you feeling? I'm starting to get a little antsy and a little nervous. The what-if's kill me. And for some reason any pain or weird feeling freaks me out. I think partly because I was in the hospital overnight with Matthew at 33 weeks and almost stayed overnight with Cami at 34 weeks. I didn't have either of them until 40 weeks, but still. Freaks me out.
