Chicken Wangs!

Have I mentioned that I have the best boyfriend in the whole world? Tonight William made gluten free dairy free deep fried chicken wings....and they were the best thing Ever!!! Here's the skinny: brine them over night, dip em in egg wash, roll them in a combo of rice flour, corn starch, and corn meal, and fry em up! Then all you have to do is top them with the best sauce ever (made by bill of course) and devour!

Mississippi Inspired

I seriously can't tell you how much I loved being in the Deep South over the holidays. A lot of my time was spent in Apalachicola with William's family, where we essentially lived on these...

But spending a little time in Hattiesburg always leaves me craving more creole food in my life! My mom sent me back up to Boone with 2 pounds of Camelia red kidney beans, the cream of the crop when it comes to making red beans and rice. I followed John Besh's recipe and added some sausage (really, John, what were you thinking?) and ended up with the biggest, most delicious pot of creole comfort food you've ever seen. We ate it for days and have enough in the freezer to feed a Cajun army (I think recipe could easily serve 20).
