Ever has been in love with her best friend Frankie since she can remember. They spend every day together, hang out on the weekends, and her parents love him, so that’s great. The part where he’s a ghost because Frankie died 2 years ago, that part’s less great.
Ever is the first of Jessa Russo’s paranormal trilogy. Because just dealing with her unrequited love for a dead guy isn’t enough, Ever also has to contend with her feelings for the mysterious hot guy who moves into Frankie’s old house. And by mysterious, I mean PLOT TWISTS! But no spoilers here.
Did I mention Hot Neighbor Toby has a giant angel wing tattoo? Between that and the Frankie situation, I was inspired to make Angel Wings for this one. If your grocer is out of angels, you can use chicken though. It’s cheaper.
Ever Angel Wings
6 chicken wings
1 big slice angel food cake
1 Tb heavy cream
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tb butter
1 minced clove garlic
1/4 c grated Parmesan
Zest of 1/2 a lemon
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tb heavy cream
Set your oven to broil, and slice up the angel food cake into a few pieces. Oh so carefully toast them in the oven until they are golden brown. Toss them in a food processor and turn them into angel crumbs. Put them in a bowl. Turn the oven down to 400.
In another bowl, mix your egg, cream, and salt. Dip the wings first in the egg mix, then in the angel crumbs, and transfer to a foil-lined and oil-sprayed baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes, turning once.
While they cook, combine all your sauce ingredients in a little saucepan and gently heat. I just left mine on the “melt” setting for the entire 25 minutes. Top your angel wings with angel sauce and enjoy, you little devil, you.
Serves 2-3 lovesick teenagers.
