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.

Happy Hour
Sugar. Spice. And everything nice: Ginger Syrup

Sugar. Spice. And everything nice: Ginger Syrup

We are heading into the holiday season. Happy Hour. Cocktail Parties. It’s time to make some drinks and desserts, but with a South Asian kick.

This homemade spicy ginger syrup is versatile for both cocktails and non-alcoholic “mocktails” and even desserts. The best part is it’s simple to make.

Where did the inspiration from this Ginger Syrup come from? Chai tea, of course.

Drunken Crown Royal Banana Bread

Drunken Crown Royal Banana Bread

Home Economics, yes the course, taught me kitchen skills. Healthy food choices, food preparation, food buying strategies and nutrition. I am certain, our class made savoury dishes, but they never stuck with me. I can’t remember any of them. Instead, my takeaways were baking fundamentals and a basic banana bread recipe.

Apple Rose Mini-Pies

Apple Rose Mini-Pies

I am done with traditional apple pie.

I admit this post was meant to be about how I excel at pie crust making. How I can combine a few ingredients like butter, salt, flour, and water and create a flaky sensation.

I won’t lie, I am confident in my pie-crust making, because I was (sort of still am) a Martha Stewart acolyte. In my early teens, before Martha Stewart’s financial woes, I was fascinated by Stewart’s uber-domesticity. I put her on a pedestal and felt enormously guilty I wished Martha Stewart was secretly my mother. My mom on the other hand thought it was pretty funny, I would be so taken by this woman who valorized home keeping. She wasn’t hurt. Rather she was happy another woman was helping to championing her daughter into the world of food and home life.
