Slow-Cooker Honey Mustard Drumsticks

January 16, 2014

My brother just stopped by the house for his daily coffee. Now that I’m not in the office 9:00-5:00 I’ve since discovered that my brother treats my family’s home like a Starbucks. Granted we have Starbucks coffee at my house so it kind of makes sense, but there’s at least 5 Starbucks locations between his apartment and my house.

I was lacking inspiration for today’s post so I asked him for some advice. I showed him the pictures to hear his opinion to which he responded “meh”. Which was then followed by “I read your post today…it was okay.” So as retaliation I am posting about what a jerk he is. You’re welcome.

I’m just kidding, he’s only sometimes a jerk, but when it comes to the blog I don’t put much weight in his opinion. He did after all eat McD’s for dinner last night. It’s also incredibly difficult to make meat look as appetizing as baked goods for the record. I told him I was going to post about him today and he told me he’d start a blog where he’d shit-talk The Healthy Maven everyday. Sibling love at it’s finest!

So here’s my recipe for Slow-Cooker Honey Mustard Drumsticks that my brother thinks looks pretty “meh”. The rest of my family on the other hand was smart enough to keep the commentary to themselves so that I would feed these to them for dinner last night. Wise people.

    I don’t think they sound “meh’,. They sound darn good to me. Maybe I’ll use this recipe to get my 17 year-old started cooking.

    Ah brothers….they’re just delightful aren’t they, she says while dripping sarcasm. I have two and one is a huge proponent of eating well while the other gives all his money to fast food. Ironically enough, the fast food junkie is actually the one who reads my blog on the regular, not that we ever talk about it, but I know he does. I also know both of them would love these wings.

    SAME with my brothers. I made fish fingers today and all they would say was that they looked “too yellow-ish”… they weren’t yellow oh my gosh no. Cooking for jerky brothers is the worst 🙁
    I do think that these drumsticks look great and pretty delicious. Honey mustard? Oh yes!

    I’ve always wanted a sibling. I’m an only child so I just fantasize about what it’s like to have a sibling.

    Also not to be weird but mustard is like my current favorite food basically. In 20 days when I can have sugar again I’m going to make these because mustard + crock pot = love.

    I only have a sister so it could be different from brothers. I haven’t seen her in several years as she lives on the East Coast. It would be awesome if she could swing by for some of these honey mustard drumsticks! It is hard to make meat look as good as baked goods!

    This looks awesome! I love slow-cooker recipes that involve “throw it all in and turn it on” kind of directions. I hate recipes that require pre-cooking before the slow cooking! I have an older sister, but we don’t exactly get along!
