A classic snack with a modern, decadent twist. Duck Fat Chex Mix made in the crock pot.

If you don’t know about duck fat, you’re really missing out! Duck fat is super rich with flavor, even more so than bacon. When used for frying, it gives food a beautiful golden brown color. It’s especially amazing when used with potatoes. My local grocery store always has it in stock, but if yours does […]

Caviar Pickled Deviled Quail Eggs

If I had to choose between deviled and pickled eggs, I’m choosing pickled every time.

Of course, because I’m a food blogger, they also have to be delicious. This Prosciutto, Melon, and Burrata Salad definitely fits the bill and is one of the few meals I make on the regular. I have been a member of the prosciutto fan club for a […]

Fried Honey Sriracha Lime Wings Recipe

I was in love with chicken wings before I even knew what love was. In college, they were my staple. Some kids survived off ramen, I chose wings. Ain’t nothing wrong with that! Surprisingly, I don’t make a whole lot of wings at home. Janette makes the deep fried buttermilk wings sometimes, and I do my […]
