In the spirit of football season (s/o to the Syracuse Orange), my lovely roommate made some delicious game day chicken wings. Sometimes less is more, and this is certainly one of those times. With nothing more than coconut oil and a dusting of paprika, these bad boys are the perfect comfort food for watching the game or a 2 a.m. snack after visiting State Street. READ MORE
