Sweet Tea Brined Fried Chicken

Sweet Tea Brined Fried Chicken

We had some of the best fried chicken—truffle honey laced fried chicken with a most delicious slaw—  I’ve ever tasted at Manhattan Beach Post for brunch a few weeks ago. I really wanted to try to recreate it– I think it would be the perfect fried chicken for chicken and waffles since it has a…

Smoked Cheddar Arancini

Smoked Cheddar Arancini

I’ve been wanting to make arancini (fried risotto balls) pretty much since the first time we’ve made risotto. But it always seems likes there is never quite enough to make it worth it, or else we have some really weird risotto mix-ins that wouldn’t translate into the best arancini. Plus it wasn’t until relatively recently…

Fried Oyster Sliders

Fried Oyster Sliders

Before I met Dustin if you’d have told me that I’d like oysters, even fried ones, I would have looked at you like you were a crazy person. I think that just goes to show that with a willingness to try new foods, your palette will grow, and you will learn to like love things…

Tater Tots

Tater Tots

The closest I ever thought I’d get to eating tater tots at home was glancing down the frozen foods aisle and hoping Erin would say “Go for it babe. Get your frozen tater tots today!” I know that day is never going to come. Being realistic and in deep desire for my tots, I decided…

Fried Matzo Balls with Horseradish Sour Cream

Buffalo Chicken Cannoli

Buffalo Chicken Cannoli

A savory, buffalo chicken cannoli? Yes, it sounds a little weird, but it’s delicious. If the word cannoli for dinner weirds you out, think of it as a giant buffalo chicken flauta. Basically it’s cooked chicken (made super easy by using rotisserie chicken from Costco), mayonnaise, blue cheese, and Frank’s hot sauce stuffed inside a…

Fried {Birthday Cake} Oreos

Fried {Birthday Cake} Oreos

This is the first year that I can remember where I will not be attending the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo at least once. For anybody that doesn’t know about Houston’s big event, it’s the largest rodeo in the world. It’s a ton of fun from eating barbecue and every sort of fried junk food…

Fried Sage Meatballs + Blue Cheese Avocado Dip

Fried Sage Meatballs + Blue Cheese Avocado Dip

No football for us today as a result of our Thanksgiving victory! But for one of the earlier Texans game this season, we decided to try our hand at a bit of deep frying. We had our Italian friend over to watch, so we wanted to incorporate a bit of Italian cuisine in too. So,…
