You know the beginning stages of falling in love? That exhilarating, “I’ll stop the world and melt with you….” feeling (that’s for my Modern English fans). Well, back on 8/8/08, my birthday a few years ago, I fell in love all over again with my husband. The morning of my birthday, he told me, “pack your bags, we’re going on a …

Pioneer Woman’s Buttermilk Fried Chicken

I know there are certain foods that I really shouldn’t mess with, one of them being fried chicken. And after all these years of cooking, last week was the very first time that I made real buttermilk fried chicken without tinkering, gourmetizing or ethnic-tizin’ with funky ingredients like panko, garam masala, five spice or corn flakes.
