Wonder Bird and Happy Nancy rubs from Dizzy Pig

Last week, we received a sample of Wonder Bird from Dizzy Pig (on the right). We were on our way out of town for the weekend, so I wasn’t able to get to it immediately. Last night, I finally had a chance to try it and we decided to use it on chicken legs. In addition, I also found… Continue reading Wonder Bird and Happy Nancy rubs from Dizzy Pig
