Morning Everyone

Hope all is well. Today is Tipsy Tuesday so my tip for today is about Brown Sugar.When you first buy brown sugar put it in a glass container with a sealed lid and buy yourself a small terra cotta heart you can get at a kitchen store and soak it in water then put it in with the brown sugare. If your brown sugar has already gone hard this is what you can do to soften it up.
There are many ways to soften brown sugar, but this one is a good one because you will probably have the items in your pantry. Put the hard brown sugar in a plastic container and line the top with plastic wrap. Put a wet, (not dripping) paper towel on top and cover. In a day you will be able to use the brown sugar.
Tonights recipe is quick and easy .


2 sticks of butter
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup lemon juice
3 tsp. hot sauce
1/2 tsp. Kosher salt
24 -28 chicken legs

Melt the butter, honey, and lemon juice together in a saucepan. Remove from heat and stir in the hot sauce and salt. Dip each chicken leg in the butter sauce and place on a foil lined rimmed cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for about an hour.
Baste them several times while they bake.
This recipe was a bit of an experiment. I wanted something that was sweet, yet spicy and I think I succeeded. Everyone has different tastebuds so you might find that you have to add more or less of honey and hot sauce next time.
Serve with coleslaw.....
