Chicken Avocado Casserole

Chicken Avocado Casserole

I was at Trader Joe’s after picking up my meat CSA and they had some really good looking avocados.  Admittedly, I don’t eat nearly as much avocado as I’d like.  I’ve always been scared of figuring out which one is ripe enough to eat and having the timing work out so they’re not totally brown. Well, I’ve finally gotten over ... Read More »

If you’re not aware, I make all of my breakfasts and lunches ahead of time and I call these 5-day recipes. If you make most ... Read More »

Fry-day: Cheesy Sausage Balls

Fried Cheesy Sausage Balls

Sometimes, simple is best. This Fry-day, I’m taking some pre-made cheesy sausage balls and throwing them in the deep fryer. That’s it. I like this one cause you can premake and freeze a bunch of sausage balls and just fry a few at a time for a meal. Here’s the finished balls.  The crust is much crisper than when I ... Read More »

Fry-day: How to make Crispy Wings!

Crispy Fried Wing

I’ve made tons of wings before but they’ve never truly been as crispy as I’d like.  Sure, most times they exceed the quality of restaurants but some places serve absolutely, crazy crispy wings.  So, I decided to try and replicate it.  My first foray into wings was baking them.  They turn out great, but not crispy.  Next, I tried frying ...
