Fresh Guacamole
Description

No need to go out and get tableside guacamole made for you with this easy recipe. Feel free to play around with the spices and herbs, but make sure to buy the avocados ahead of time so they are perfectly ripe by the big day. 

Hint: If you're in a bind and stuck with rock-hard avocados, place them in a brown paper bag, along with a banana or apple, in a dark drawer for a day or two until they ripen.

These wings were marinated in this sweet-and-spicy sauce that was later boiled down to make a delectable glaze for the crispy, tender wings. You can marinate them for anywhere from two hours to a whole day, or just bake them with olive oil and make the glaze to finish.

The Little Owl's Gravy Meatball Sliders
Description

These iconic meatball sliders have made this notoriously difficult to get into West Village restaurant famous. (The fact that The Little Owl is in the building where the Friends' apartment supposedly was also attracts quite a few tourists.) For these sliders, either make the specialty buns demonstrated in the recipe, or use store-bought ones to save time.
