Simple Ways to Dye Easter Eggs

Oh god.. does anyone else think those look like balut? *gets nauseous*

Serious Grape: Sweet Wines for Your Sweetie

Oh my god you guys need an edit button, lol. Look at all my grammar mistakes!

Serious Grape: Sweet Wines for Your Sweetie

*more than once a year

Serious Grape: Sweet Wines for Your Sweetie

I love Inniskinnin's wine,but it's just too pricey for me to get once a year. So, if I'm on a budget, (and who isn't these days?) I opt for Quady Electra Dessert Wine. It comes in a 750ML that runs for about $12 any most liquor stores and some larger grocery stores. Pair it with a flourless chocolate torte and your set!

Blogwatch: Deep-Fried Ravioli

My family has a passed down recipe for fried ravioli but we use the meat ravioli and it's still frozen when it goes in the deep fryer. It doesn't get bubbles either because we bread ours :). It's a little time-consuming, but worth the effort!

P.S. We use or favorite jarred marinara sauce for dipping.

All About the Inauguration Luncheon

I think they may ask, because looking back on the menus the ones for a few of them (Clinton) were very very simple, and the rest were very out-there for their time.

Mixed Review: Lipton's Onion Dip and Simply Organic's Guacamole for Football Parties

All we use to make the guacamole we both LOVE is just avocados, lemon juice, salt, and a little olive oil.

Animal Style Fries at In-N-Out Burger

Sans onions that looks quite good!

In Videos: Microwaves Play 'Jingle Bells'

I didn't watch the video, but I have a microwave at work that will start the moment you turn the dial to the minute you want. I think if these were like that you could hook them all up to the same power source, set the timers, and then turn the power source on.

McDonald's Filet-O-Fish: Yea or Nay?

I ask for the tartar sauce on my 1$ chicken sandwich. Try it!

Kellogg's Saves Mother's Cookies

Does this include the oatmeal cookies? I saved some before my grocery sold out of them...

Mixed Review: Thanksgiving Cornbread

My Texas grandmother always used Jiffy and its' a sin not to bake cornbread in a cast iron pan! It creates the best flavor.

Snapshots from the UK: Turkish Delight

I actually first thought Turkish Delight was some sort of Turkey dish (maybe turkey dumpling?) oh I was so young and naive.

Chipotle Meatballs definitely sound the yummiest; I love chipotles AND anything with meat makes my day!

Dinner Tonight: Adobong Na Manok

IMO when I look at that photo I see chicken in a golden sauce that looks so tender it fell off the bone. But then again, there are only a few neutral colors in it so it's hard to tell what is what ;)

Dinner Tonight: Barack Obama's Chili

In most, if not all, chili cook offs where chili is judged there are strict rules against fillers including beans and corn (ew). My father has actually won a few of the smaller ones in his area. His secret ingredient? Well its a spice normally used on sweet breakfast rolls ;).

Idaho Statesman Ganks My Fatty Melt Recipe

He is even using parts of the article written in first person, pathetic.

Idaho Statesman Ganks My Fatty Melt Recipe

How bad are we allowed to cuss on here? lol

Sweet Potato Fries -- Who Likes These Things?

At T.G.I. Fridays they serve one of the recipe-winning dishes with sweet potato fries and they are actually prepared quite well. They are more cut into thick steak fries, though. I avoid the palate fatigue by alternating dipping them into the dip they give you for the chicken dish (Aji Pepper sauce) and a requested side of their Jack Daniels BBQ sauce. Sweet potato fries are actually quite fantastic with the BBQ sauce!

Dinner Tonight: Adobong Na Manok

I hate that I can't edit! *mangnok = manok

Dinner Tonight: Adobong Na Manok

Oh, and you can leave out the ginger, and just use white vinegar if you don't have other stuff. It's another popular traditional way to make it

Dinner Tonight: Adobong Na Manok

Actually adobo is the style, and adobong is tagalong and means "adobo made of" and mangnok means chicken, so you can leave out Na, :) Just use "adobong manok "

Dear AHT: How to Make Glazed Doughnut Bacon Egg Cheeseburgers

I like to try things at least once, they couldn't be any worse than sauteed chicken hearts, right? right?

Blogwatch: Biscuits and Gravy, Always a Classic

My boyfriend loves the canned sausage cream gravy on store bought biscuits, so this Christmas, when I drag him down to my family in Texas, I am having him try real biscuits and gravy. Wait until he tries the real stuff!

Blogwatch: Biscuits and Gravy, Always a Classic

That's my favorite breakfast, me being from the south, and I love big chunks of sausage in the gravy. Now I'm hungry for some warm biscuits and peppery sausage cream gravy, and it's all your fault!
