Family recipes take wing
in new cookbook

Chicken Alice must've had some way with chicken wings. Requests for this long-ago restaurateur's long-ago hot wings come in all the time. Haven't found her or her recipe yet, though.

But for Jon Shimamoto, Janice Kondo and everyone else who's hungry for those wings, here's a substitute. Not the real thing, but spicy and crunchy, plus turning to this recipe means I can promote another good-cause cookbook, "Sssimply Sensational," being sold to benefit a Mililani High School's Project Graduation 2005.

Like most cookbooks of this ilk, "Sssimply Sensational" is a collection of favorite recipes from family and friends, plus a few celebrities. Unlike most, though, it is very attractively designed with a snake theme throughout, and cleverly packaged in a three-ring binder that makes it extremely easy to use.

"Sssimply Sensational" will be sold from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Fridays through Oct. 29 at the Mililani Town Center and at the Christmas Crafts and Food Expo at Blaisdell Center Nov. 26 to 28. It is also available at Baldwin's Sweet Shop in the Waimalu Shopping Center, Tanioka's Seafood and Catering in Waipahu and Kilani Bakery in Wahiawa.

It sells for $12.

The cookbook can also be mail-ordered: E-mail your order to landms@juno.com or call Lynne Hasegawa, 358-4832. Postage is an additional $5.

From the cookbook, two ways to wing your way to poultry happiness.

And, if anyone has a lead on Chicken Alice, please get in touch through one of the means listed at the end of this piece. A free cookbook goes to anyone who can solve the mystery .
