Winter Confusion with Cumin Coleslaw

Winter Confusion with Cumin Coleslaw

Since it’s the first day of 2015, it was only fitting this coleslaw got things rolling. Why? Well, for many people, cabbage is synonymous with detoxification and weight balance. It supposedly cleanses the liver. Trying to not be overly presumptious, but there is usually a lot of cleansing, fasting, and overall weight management stuff going on in January.

Finger Lickin’ Fried Chicken

Finger Lickin’ Fried Chicken

From the grease on your fingers to the crumbs on your lips, fried chicken can evoke childhood memories from almost anyone. Even me. Sometimes I have a fried chicken craving from my youth. Unfortunately, my family were not, by nature, fried chicken eaters. At the Lehail house, KFC was the be-all end-all of special occasions. Buckets of chicken — with its famous blend of 11 herbs and spices — along with coleslaw, macaroni salad, fries, and biscuits, made appearances on occasions like New Year’s Eve/Day. Relatives and family friends were prerequisites.

Double Dipped Fried Green Tomatoes

I enjoy eating fried food items from time to time (who doesn’t?). I especially like thinking of new foods to fry. These Double Dipped Fried Green Tomatoes have been floating around my head since I watched the movie, Fried Green Tomatoes, years ago.

Jessie’s Incredible Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Cinnamon Icing

Jessie’s Incredible Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Cinnamon Icing

There is something sacramental about eating cake, especially chocolate cake in good company.

Growing up, my sisters and I were on a mission to do just that, but never thought to bake a cake from scratch. It never crossed our minds. We only baked Betty Crocker or Duncan Hines premixed cakes. Chocolate and even German Chocolate were on heavy rotation, along with white, confetti, lemon, orange, and even banana. Alas, there was always wishful thinking, hope even, that the cake would look just like the picture on the box.
