crispy, juicy and HOT!!!

Sunday suppers seem to creep upon us quicker than ever, almost as quick as summer has passed by…
Tonight, an incredible classic dish needed to make an appearance on our table… classic fried chicken! This dish was a do-ahead however.
After breaking down the chicken into manageable pieces, they were brined overnight. Today they were dipped into a buttermilk concoction and then dusted in a flavorful, spicy flour mixture.
Cooked in a fragrant herb and garlic infused oil, these previously boring beauties turned into sultry goddesses.
Once golden and crisp [and of course cooked through], a tower of divine luxury was built on a plate then decorated and spritzed with wedges of lemon.
Each crunchy bite brought back memories of childhood when my mother would spend hours in the kitchen preparing the ultimate and perhaps most intoxicating fried chicken… she taught me well!

we let her eat cake…

For a birthday celebration this past weekend, the birthday girl was surrounded by her family and was able to enjoy delicious foods and company!
Many delightful dishes graced the table and everyone enjoyed themselves fully, but then it was that time… yes the time that makes everyone cringe… the cake! We all know too well that when the cake comes out, so does the dreaded birthday song, but like a trooper the birthday girl just blushed and accepted it. The cake was our present to her… a moist and delicious three layered chocolate cake with a salted caramel icing/filling!
She blew out her candles… even though there were only two, that was satisfactory and they did their part. Wonder what she wished for…
