buffalo chicken meatball subs with blue cheese dressing

Buffalo Chicken Meatball Subs

Last week I shared my favorite  vegetarian game day food, the roasted vegetable enchiladas. It’s packed with smokey, roasted veggies and is utterly delicious. But if you’re looking for something a little on the  guilty pleasure side, well, you’ve come to the right place.

I was vegetarian for a while, so I don’t think I had ever had buffalo chicken wings until after I had graduated from college. My first job was in the heart of Georgetown, and I was young and had so few responsibilities. My friends and I used to to trek over to McFaddins for beer after work and it was there that I had my first wing. Someone else had ordered them and I took one red, sticky wing with some skepticism, and then instantly fell in love. I began to crave their super spicy wings. I was crushed when our new hangout spot slowly gravitated back towards Georgetown, to Mr. Smith’s. Sure, it was more convenient and more laid back, but they just didn’t have the wings!

Joseph first made these enchiladas for me a year and half ago after one of my knee surgeries and afterwards I only vaguely remembered some yummy thing with sweet potatoes. When he made it again and I wasn’t hopped up on painkillers, I begged him to make it again and again and again. I adore roasted veggies and am especially in love with sweet potatoes and poblano chilies together. If you’re not familiar with poblanos, they’re the mild peppers typically used to make chilis rellenos.

best of pixelated crumb 2012

Top 10 of 2012

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday. I for one have started out 2013 with a bang, becoming an auntie (again – I already have two amazing nieces on my husband’s side)! My sister gave birth to a beautiful 9 lb 4 oz baby named Lexi yesterday.

It’s been a pretty great year for Pixelated Crumb and a great year of eating. Here’s a look back at the most popular posts over the year.

Number 10: Three Layer Chocolate Cake with Marshmallow Frosting

Three Layer Chocolate Cake with Marshmallow Frosting

Phew! This one almost didn’t make the cut, but I’m so glad it did because it’s one of my very favorite cakes. The gooey marshmallow frosting is sinfully good and  the cake is so perfectly moist and chocolatey. It’s also my dad’s favorite cake, so it always makes me happy.

Number 9: Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies from Cook’s Illustrated

These giant cookies are rich and brimming with butterscotch notes from the browned butter so it’s no wonder this was a popular one.

Number 8: Cadbury Egg Brownies

If you’re anything like me, you’re a little embarrassed to admit that you love Cadbury Eggs. Solution? Make your own in brownie form! So much more mature and sophisticated.

Number 7: Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

These pancakes are the most decadent, sinful, and delectable breakfast I’ve ever had. They are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.
