Auntie Fran’s Chicken Wings

When I was at the shore for my sister’s bridal shower, my Aunt Ann shared some of her favorite Salasin family recipes.  Among them, was one from my grandmother Lila’s best friend whom we all called, “Auntie Fran.”

Fran was tall, vivacious and spunky, and although I was only fourteen when she and my grandmother lost their lives, the playful quality of their mid-life friendship colors my life to this day.

Among the joys Lila and Fran shared was a delight of good food and cooking.  They worked as caterers together.  Their passion lives on as generations of loved ones share their favorite recipes.
