Best Ever Fried Ch...
If fried chicken is on the menu, I am ordering it. I have found lots of restaurants who have wonderful fried chicken, but honestly I still love my fried chicken just as good. This chicken is marinated in buttermilk and a little hot sauce. It is juicy, very crispy, and has a wonderful flavorful crust. […]
Sausage and Sweet ...
Sausage and sweet potato together are also very classic. The salty sweet-combination with a little bit of spice just makes the perfect side dish to any meal. So much better than ground beef in a recipe like this since the sausage is seasoned perfectly. Hash is not just for breakfast! This dish is really nice […]
Traditionally, taquitos are tortillas rolled up around a filling of beef, chicken and/or cheese and then deep-fried until crispy. You can get them at Mexican restaurants or in the freezer section of the supermarket, but making them yourself is incredibly easy (and relatively inexpensive).

You know that I have been craving these dang things, and telling myself I was going to make them soon, for so long I really can’t remember. There is a place over in Tacoma called BJ’s, and they have lettuce wraps on their menu. They will do in a pinch, but they aren’t the ones […]

The recipe makes two large drinks. If you were at Starbucks, we’re talking two venti drinks. Feel free to halve the recipe, or quarter it, if you’re not as much of a java addict or power drinker. I recommend making the full recipe and putting the extra portion in the freezer, and the next time […]
This is chicken salad for the mayonnaise-hating crowd, although even if you happen to think mayonnaise is perfectly delightful, this is a nice alternative. It’s got crunch, color, and a tangy dijon vinaigrette. Plus, it goes really well with some slices of bacon. Just sayin’.
Knowing how to make a basic vinaigrette for salads is one of the best skills a home cook can have. And happily, this is as easy as combining olive oil and vinegar in a jar with some salt and fresh-cracked black pepper, and then giving that jar a shake. You barely even need a recipe.
