Copycat Panda Express Chow Mein

I made this for years using expensive Chinese Chow Mein noodles. $4 for 6 oz seemed a bit steep. Especially because I make it every other week. I decided to use thin spaghetti one night and never looked back. 🤣 $1 for 16 oz? Yes, please! So while it might not be 100% authentic, itContinue reading “Copycat Panda Express Chow Mein”

Asian Beef Cabbage Rolls

I really, really wanted to make Asian Beef Lettuce Wraps, but I can’t find lettuce anywhere. Time to improvise! I had a head of cabbage in my fridge that I needed to use up and figured what the heck. Lol! They turned out great! The heat of the chile paste and the creaminess of theContinue reading “Asian Beef Cabbage Rolls”

Copycat Popeye’s Fried Chicken

One of my weaknesses is fried chicken and Popeye’s was my favorite, though I haven’t had it in years. Honestly, frying it fresh at home is so much tastier than the chicken that’s been sitting under a heating lamp for an hour plus. Adding spices to every layer is key and the buttermilk bath makesContinue reading “Copycat Popeye’s Fried Chicken”

Baked Garlic Parmesan Wings

Baked some Garlic Parmesan Wings for lunch! ❤️ They were missing something, so I made an Italian Vinaigrette to drizzle over top. Top notch wings! I will definitely be adding these to my weekly wing recipe rotation.

Chicken and Cornbread Waffles

I’m definitely marinating my fried chicken in mustard and mayo again! More flavorful (and cleaner) than an egg wash! It was so tender and moist I loved it! I sandwiched the chicken in a cornbread waffle and served it with BBQ baked beans and Air Fryer Garlic Herb Fries. Chicken & Cornbread Waffles • 2Continue reading “Chicken and Cornbread Waffles”

Parmesan Herb Garlic Knots

I had some inquiries about my garlic knot recipe. I use the previously submitted pizza dough recipe, but I’ll include it incase someone didn’t catch the post. This makes a whopping 16 large knots, so halving the recipe would be beneficial if you didn’t want that many. You can also freeze the dough before theContinue reading “Parmesan Herb Garlic Knots”

Beer Braised Bangers and Irish Champ

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! ☘️ I normally make Corn Beef and Cabbage with Boiled Potatoes, but unfortunately all of the corn beef sold out a week ago along with almost everything else in the store. 🤣 I had to stick with what I had in my pantry and freezer this St. Patty’s day. It wasContinue reading “Beer Braised Bangers and Irish Champ”

Air Fryer Sweet & Tangy Plantains

I love plantains! I used to pan fry them, but my air fryer does the trick brilliantly with almost no oil! ❤️ I’d only ever had them with sea salt, garlic and Parmesan so I decided to switch it up a bit and make an interpretation of Maduros. They were pretty dang good! Air FryerContinue reading “Air Fryer Sweet & Tangy Plantains”
