  • 2 -3 dozen chicken wings
  • Flour, for dusting chicken (optional)
  • Safflower or peanut oil, for frying chicken (optional)
  • Olive oil
  • Garlic, crushed, to taste (optional)
  • Garlic powder, to taste
  • 1 can Italian whole plum tomatoes
  • 3 teaspoons parsley, chopped
  • Salt, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons Durkee’s hot sauce, plus more to taste


Preheat the broiler. Place the chicken wings under the broiler until cooked through, about 15 minutes, turning them halfway through. (Alternatively, you can also deep-fry the chicken wings. Lightly flour them and deep-fry in safflower or peanut oil at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes per batch, or until cooked through.)

Meanwhile, heat 1/8-inch of olive oil in a pan, add the crushed garlic or garlic powder, to taste. Mash the can of whole plum tomatoes through a sieve and cook in the olive oil. Add the parsley and salt, to taste and cook for about 20 minutes.

Next, add the hot sauce and a little garlic powder and cook for another 3-4 minutes. In a bowl, toss the chicken wings with ½ cup of the sauce and serve with the remaining sauce on the side. Enjoy!

Recipe Summary

  • Peanut oil, for frying
  • 24 whole chicken wings
  • All-purpose flour, for dredging
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 crushed cloves garlic, plus more, if desired
  • 1 can (28 ounces) peeled, whole tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder

Line a baking sheet with paper towels. Heat 4 inches peanut oil in a medium stockpot over high heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 400 degrees. Dredge wings in flour, shaking to remove excess flour. Add wings to hot oil, and fry until dark golden brown, 14 to 18 minutes. Transfer to prepared baking sheet season with salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add crushed garlic cook until fragrant, about 4 minutes. Remove garlic from oil and discard. In a medium bowl, crush tomatoes with your hands. Add to olive oil cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through. Add parsley, salt, and pepper reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Add hot sauce and garlic powder cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Keep warm until ready to use.

In a large bowl, toss wings with 1/2 cup of sauce. Serve immediately with remaining sauce on the side.

If you want to add a twist to this already classic recipe, Jay Leno added his Uncle Louie‘s Chicken Wings Marinara recipe to Frank Sinatra‘s cookbook with his wife:

1 dozen chicken wings or 2 dozen drumettes
2 T. olive oil
1 T. garlic powder or granulated garlic
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 c. marinara sauce
2 T. Durkee Hot Sauce, or to taste
4 garlic cloves, chopped
Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
– Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
– If using whole chicken wings, disjoint the wings and remove tips you should have 24 drumettes.
– In a large bowl, toss the chicken with the olive oil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Arrange on a rack in a baking pan. Roast the chicken in the preheated oven until done, about 30 minutes.
– Meanwhile, place the marinara sauce, hot sauce, and raw garlic in a blender and blend to pur├â┬⌐e the garlic. When the wings are done, remove from the oven and toss wings with half the sauce. Leave oven on. Return the wings to the oven for an additional 10 minutes.
– Sprinkle the wings with parsley. Serve with the remaining sauce on the side to dip the wings into.

If you want to try something different, try these Mini Antipasto Calzones from Giada De Laurentiis:

Flour for dusting
1 (16-ounce) ball pizza dough
1/2 cup (4 ounces) shredded provolone cheese
1/2 cup (4 ounces) shredded Fontina cheese (see Cook’s Note)
1-ounce salami diced into 1/4-inch pieces
1/2 of a jarred roasted red bell pepper, drained and diced into 1/4-inch pieces (about 1/4 cup)
1 tablespoons kalamata olives, finely chopped (about 5 olives)
1 egg
1 teaspoon water
Cornmeal for dusting
Marinara sauce, for dipping
Cook’s note: Place a wedge of Fontina cheese in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes to make shredding easier.
– Place an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
– On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the dough ball into a 14-inch diameter circle, about 1/4-inch thick. Using a 4-inch round cutter, cut each dough round into 12 circles. Transfer the circles onto two heavy baking sheets dusted with cornmeal.
– In a medium bowl, combine the cheeses, salami, peppers, and olives. In a separate bowl, beat the egg and water together. Place 1 tablespoon of the cheese mixture onto 1 side of each dough circle, leaving a 1/4-inch border on the edge. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush the edges of the dough with the beaten egg. Fold the unfilled side of the dough over the filling and using the tines of a fork, press the edges of the dough together to seal. Repeat with the remaining dough circles.
– Brush the calzones with the remaining egg mixture and bake for 14 minutes, rotating the position of the trays halfway through baking, until the calzones are golden brown. Serve the calzones on a platter with warm marinara sauce for dipping.

The Sinatra Celebrity Cookbook: Barbara, Frank & Friends

What did I think? Not much. Barbara Marx had pursued Frank Sinatra in his latter years. She had been something of a professional slut for her life and had latched on to a much older Harpo Marx who divorced her when he found out she was cheating on him and since Frank was a friend of Harpo&aposs that she had gotten to know, she set her cap for the lonely singer and actor because his name and money were greater than Harpo&aposs.

She used Frank to enjoy the luxurious life and to gain fame for herself. She What did I think? Not much. Barbara Marx had pursued Frank Sinatra in his latter years. She had been something of a professional slut for her life and had latched on to a much older Harpo Marx who divorced her when he found out she was cheating on him and since Frank was a friend of Harpo's that she had gotten to know, she set her cap for the lonely singer and actor because his name and money were greater than Harpo's.

She used Frank to enjoy the luxurious life and to gain fame for herself. She used his money to start a center for children (Frank was always generous with people and a humanitarian) that she put HER name on. This cookbook was a fundraiser for the center. She made sure that though it was a Sinatra Celebrity cookbook to grab all the credit for herself as author and has her stupid face plastered everywhere within. She made herself out to be a great cook though Frank had said for years that she was a horrible cook and that HE did all the cooking just as his dad had done when he was a child (His mom was a very early feminist activist). She made him out to be just a "taster".

There are some good recipes here but most of what the celebrities offered were just standard cookbook recipes (often with the same titles) that I have seen in basic cookbooks. Others are serious clunkers. Frank's own marinara sauce recipe for pasta was described as coming from the finest ingredients yet it uses canned tomatoes. I saw Frank on the Dinah Shore show cooking and and eating the sauce with pasta that they made and it is not made like this at all.

The best part of the book is seeing the photos of Frank. I notice she did not include Frank's favorite recipes they made at home as she advertised she would be doing and there are no recipes from his daughters Nancy and Tina nor son Frank, Jr, probably because they hate her guts and dropped her as soon as he died. Who can blame them? . more

Chicken Parmesan Party Ring

You Will Need…
Tyson® Crispy Chicken Strips (3.5 lbs) (we buy the 3.5 lbs bag but you will not need all of these)
2 cans of crescent rolls
1 23.5 oz jar of your favorite marinara sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tbsps butter
1 tbsp minced garlic
*If you don’t use parmesan cheese, sprinkle some on top

To Prepare…
1. Open the crescent rolls and arrange them on your pre-floured pan in a star type shape as shown.
2. Put all of the minced garlic and butter into a microwave safe bowl and heat until melted, stirring thoroughly. With a spoon or brush, cover the middle of the “star” where all of the pieces overlap – using about half of the mixture.
3. Cover that same area again with a few spoonfuls of marinara sauce.
4. Arrange the Tyson® Crispy Chicken Strips on your star all around the center. Try to cover as much of the middle as possible.
5. Add a few more spoonfuls of marinara to the top of the Tyson® Crispy Chicken Strips.
6. Add your mozzarella cheese to the top of the Tyson® Crispy Chicken Strips.
7. Bring all of the ends of the crescent rolls to the center as evenly as you can and push any cheese pieces that fall out back into the party ring.
8. Spoon the rest of the butter and garlic mixture over the top and sprinkle with parsley.
8. Cook in a pre-heated oven on 400° for 20-25 minutes. You will need to check it at 20 minutes. Make sure that the bottom is thoroughly cooked. If not, try a couple more minutes until it is done.

Dave Berg: Jay Leno’s other legacy

The Kennedy Center has presented Jay Leno its prestigious Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, making him the first late-night host to be so honored.

The award was well deserved, as Leno leaves behind an impressive legacy to American humor, worthy of comparison to Samuel Clemens&rsquo satire.

But I believe the former &ldquoTonight Show&rdquo host&rsquos greatest legacy may lie ahead, and it won&rsquot be about comedy. It&rsquoll be about cars. Leno has one of the world&rsquos finest collections of classic automobiles and other vehicles, more than 220 in all, which he keeps in his so-called garage (seven warehouses near the Burbank Airport).

But Leno does more than acquire vehicles. He&rsquos an expert in all-things automotive, including restoration, repairs and the history of the industry.

He writes a car advice column for Popular Mechanics, a classic magazine of popular technology, and has an Emmy-winning web series about cars, called &ldquoJay Leno&rsquos Garage.&rdquo

The car series, carried on YouTube, gets more than 5 million hits a month.

Which is why the NBC Universal-owned cable network CNBC is planning to produce a prime-time show based on Leno&rsquos garage, starting in 2015.

The hour-long program will feature classic cars, investments and the car collectors&rsquo market. &ldquoWe hope to highlight the passion and the stories behind the men and women who made the automobile the greatest invention of the 20th century,&rdquo Leno said.

The show will include interviews with celebrities, many of whom have classic car collections. Of course, no Leno production would ever be complete without a generous share of humor.

He once did a cooking segment for Martha Stewart&rsquos show in the huge gourmet kitchen in his garage, where he often prepares meals for his crew and celebrities who drop by.

He was making his Uncle Louie&rsquos Chicken Wings Marinara to serve about 20 people. The recipe called for a clove of elephant garlic, which needed to be crushed. He did the job, using his 60-ton hydraulic press to apply 4,000 pounds of pressure to the clove.

He also proudly showed off his salt-and-pepper shaker, made out of a carburetor. I&rsquom guessing that was one of the most unique cooking segments ever featured on Stewart&rsquos show.

But there&rsquos more at work here than a television program about Leno&rsquos love of cars.

He&rsquos a leading opinion maker on the economic importance of automobiles, and has long touted the superiority of American automotive know-how and technology.

In 2008, when General Motors was on the verge of going under, Leno strongly supported a government bailout to help keep manufacturing in America. He told Popular Mechanics: &ldquo&hellip when a factory closes, boy, you&rsquoll see the effect of that right away. You&rsquoll see towns go under and you&rsquoll see lives ruined.&rdquo

The federal government did eventually bail out the struggling legendary U.S. automaker with $50 billion, which was initiated by President George W. Bush in 2008 and expanded by President Barack Obama in 2009.

While the government lost more than $11 billion, the bailout was a success overall, saving 1.5 million jobs, according to the Center for Automotive Research. Leno&rsquos role as an influencer in the controversial government decision was significant.

Leno has been an ardent supporter of the latest technology, such as the development of alternative fuels and improved storage capacity in automobile batteries.

He himself has been a pioneer in the use of cutting edge technology, such as 3-D printing. His shop has an industrial, refrigerator-sized 3-D printer, which literally produces computer-designed parts.

It&rsquos ironic that such a futuristic device makes old car parts, but many of the parts Leno needs are no longer manufactured.

Jay Leno&rsquos Garage&rdquo on CNBC will be hugely popular, but it will also serve as a springboard to recast Leno&rsquos image from celebrated late-night comedian to world-renowned automotive authority.

Dave Berg&rsquos new book, &ldquoBehind the Curtain: An Insider&rsquos View of Jay Leno&rsquos Tonight Show,&rdquo showcases his 18 years as co-producer for Jay Leno. He lives in Los Angeles.
