Yay! I am a winner! Well, a runner-up, but I feel like a winner. Remember the Saucy Mama contest and giveaway? Right before the contest was up, I got the idea to make some crunchy Baked Hot Wing Sauce Garbanzo Beans. If you’ve never had baked garbanzo beans, they’re a delicious and healthy nutty snack without actually being nuts. Trust me, done right, these things are addicting. Anyway, a big thanks goes out to the people at Barhyte Specialty Foods for sending me your delicious sauces and for the prize. I had such a great time and was happy before by just receiving all that great sauce and being included in the contest! I found out yesterday (screened my calls and didn’t answer the actual phone call the night before…oops!) via email. It came just at the right time as I was cranky from being sick of my son’s cold. He has a never-ending rope of snot that he’s had for 5 days and he hates it when I wipe his nose but refuses to use tissues. I’m constantly cleaning him up while he vehemently protests. Word from the folks at Saucy Mama had me feeling much more upbeat in between snot rags and antioxidants. Sometimes, it can be a little scary to put your stuff out there and it’s nice to get some positive feedback! …And a prize!
If you want to see the real winning recipe, it’s here: Shredded Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches with Blue Cheese Slaw – from Kristy at The Wicked Noodle – also using the hot wing sauce. The sandwiches look fantastic, I will definitely be trying these out…but with a different kind of cheese since believe it or not, blue cheese is pretty much one of the only foods out there that I don’t like. Judging on the rave reviews I read on the sandwich – Kristy deserves the win:) It’s funny because in the post she says she thinks it’s the winner! In the near future, her recipe will be included on the Saucy Mama hot wing sauce. How cool is that!?
