Ranch Chicken Wings with Buffalo Dipping Sauce

I love chicken wings. All kinds of chicken wings, really, but I prefer the ones that aren’t all goopy.  You know – goopy.  The kind that get you ridiculously messy just by picking one up.  Sure, I’ll still eat that kind of wing – they’re delicious – but I’d really prefer the drier variety.  And […]
