This recipe is hugely inspired by the crispy pork belly specialty known as the Chicharron Colombiano. I really love how pork belly can end up having diverse textures in just a single dish – a crisp crackling on top, a perfectly rendered fat layer beneath, and extra succulent meat with fall-off-the-bone tenderness at the bottom.

Perfect french fries. Period. It just can’t get any better than this. French fries. This humble side may be the among the easiest to prepare. . . if you’ll do fine with mediocre to average results, that is. But who doesn’t appreciate a perfectly-cooked serving of these potatoes? Soft and pillowy like mashed potatoes […]
Serve burger differently for dinner. Healthy, tasty, and filling. . . this tilapia burger is such a wonderful treat!
The familiar flavors of Chinese cooking come together in this chicken dish. Time to serve fried chicken in a different way [adinserter name="Yummly"] Honestly, the batter for this fried chicken recipe is the crispiest I have tried. It’s more similar to a tempura batter being all too puffed up, light, and crumbly. It ain’t only all […]
There are so many foods that bring back childhood memories for all of us, and one memorable dish that shows up at baseball games and fairgrounds alike is the all-American deep fried corndog. Indeed, it began its existence as a food meant to be made with minimal ingredients, and attached to a stick to be eaten with minimal (or no!) extra fuss. Dipped into your favorite condiment (or condiments!) of choice, the familiar corndog is a favorite your whole family will love.
This is a great summer dish to highlight the vegetables at the peak of their season. My favorite way to enjoy this dish is to serve it with grilled zucchini tossed with basil, and a toasty piece of sourdough bread.
The smell of anything frying is enough to conjure so many people’s favorite comfort food memories, and here I pay homage to the delicious dish of fried calamari and aioli my grandmother taught me to appreciate.
Falafel is an ancient and still very famous street food, and this version adds lots of fresh parsley for a green tint to the delicious fried balls. Some falafel calls for fava beans or chickpeas, but I have opted for the latter here. I have left it a suggestion as to what you like to top your pita with– there are really no wrong ways to do it!
My southern grandmother used to love to make chicken fried steak for us on Sundays, and memories of her cooking flood my mind as I write this recipe. Feel free to add greens of your choice (usually braised collards or turnip greens!) for a little extra healthy addition. As it is, though, this meal is hearty enough to fill your hungriest diners.
Search for the best quality grass-fed steak you can find for the best flavor. It’s important also to search for the Yukon Gold potatoes, as those in my opinion make the creamiest mashed potatoes. If you or your diners are watching your calorie intake, feel free to substitute and low fat dairy options for the heavy cream in the mashed potatoes, or just substitute plain milk.
What better way to win the hearts of our company than to prepare for them a plate of delicious comforting fried foods? All the better the dish be shared among friends, so this is a recipe that is a favorite to get passed around parties and all sorts of gatherings.
