    Mind you I am not half as talented as the wonderful cooks Country Crock has but I made my own Spicy Honey Roasted Wings using Country Crock to get in the Lollapalooza spirit and they are amazing. I wanted to pick a recipe I thought would be easy for even the least experienced to make and also one that took few ingredients and would be cheap to make. Spicy Honey Roasted Wings are just the perfect summer treat. You could serve these as a tailgating appetizer, at a BBQ, summer party or any kind of get together.Wings are the universal food in my book; they are great for so many different occasions.Check out these other Lollapalooza inspired recipes and bake up your own Lollapalooza and Country Crock inspired goodness:
