Nearly everyone loves fried chicken, whether its chicken tenders, wings, or a juicy thigh. You can have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner, eat it with waffles or salad, and dress it up sweet, spicy, or savory. No matter the way you look at it, it’s a tasty and versatile piece of meat.
Perfect Baked Chicken Breast
Baked chicken is great for busy nights or when you have guests and don't want to be spending the whole evening in the kitchen babysitting your meal. It's also one of my shortest method recipes, because the oven does all the work on this one.
Perfect Pan-Seared Chicken Breast
Learn the tricks to making juicy, perfectly cooked chicken on the stove in about 15 minutes start to finish. This is my go-to method of cooking chicken on any given night simply for the convenience, and once cooked, it can be stored away for other meals in the week.
Juicy Pan-Seared Burger
No outdoor space, no grill. No grill, no burgers. Or maybe that doesn't have to be the case. You can still make a delicious burger on your stove top without having to sacrifice on flavor or time, something restaurants do all the time.
Semi-Homemade Devil’s Food Cake
Box cake gets a bad rap, and its true that if you follow the instructions on the back you're going to get a cake that is probably OK at best. But by switching out a few of the added ingredients, you can change the whole composition of the cake, creating something that is ultra moist, rich and bakery-worthy.
Simple Sausage Gravy
Sausage gravy has many aliases: sawmill gravy, white gravy, breakfast gravy, southern gravy - but whatever you call it, it's delicious. This gravy is made with a roux, but rather than using stock or water, milk is added, giving it that signature white colour and creamy texture.
Foolproof Banana Bread
Banana "bread" has always felt like a misnomer to me because its basically cake without the frosting. And I'm not complaining. I absolutely love banana bread and other quick breads which give you all the satisfaction of cake with a little bit less of the sugar and fat.
Ultra-Cheesy Mac n Cheese
Mac n Cheese is at the top of my ultimate comfort food list, and while I understand the urge to reach for the box stuff (I keep it in my pantry for a rainy day), there's just no beating the creamy, stringy, cheesy goodness that is homemade.
