I haven't had KFC in ages but my family used to get it a ton when I was a kid, so this copycat recipe definitely brings up good memories. We paired our chicken with mashed potatoes and corn - I totally forgot biscuits - shame on me, right?! Regardless, this meal definitely filled us up and I know that Nick and the kids cannot wait to have it again. We love spicy fried chicken, but this seasoned crispy fried chicken was great too!

Throwback Thursday #48

Throwback Thursday No. 48 | Rediscovering Old Favorites in the Recipe Archive

I think it's so funny to see when I discovered Pioneer Woman because all of these Throwbacks are containing at least one PDub recipe. This PASTA ALLA MARLBORO MAN is a wonderful spaghetti-like recipe. I really enjoyed the flavors that came from the simple ingredients.


I enjoy trying many different roast recipes. This TENDER ROAST WITH VEGGIES AND GRAVY recipe is also quite simple, but packs such a flavorful punch. It's a very classic tasting roast.

Copycat Applebee's All-In Brunch Burgers #FantasticalFoodFight

Welcome to another Food Fight! Fantastical Food Fight is a group of food bloggers who will get a theme or ingredient each month and make some sort of variation for it. It could be traditional or nontraditional and can be found in a cookbook, on a blog, or be a blogger's own creation! For more details, check out this page.

November's theme is FAST FOOD COPYCATS and I could not be more ready to see what my fellow food fighters have in store for today's theme. I personally consider a lot of restaurants fast food even though they may not be fast. So my copycat for today is a burger I've always wanted to get at Applebee's, but never do. I am a creature of habit and cannot NOT get my favorite: the quesadilla burger! I need to make a copycat for it soon, but I had to make this All-In Brunch Burger first.

I believe the onion and bacon is cooked into the burger patty, but I don't like that. I find that just means my burgers aren't going to cook as well because they'll be sticking to the pan and then the onions won't be cooked uniformly. So I chose to cook the onions with the hashbrowns and the bacon by itself. I also am unsure if you get a choice in whether your egg yolk is hard or overeasy. No one in my household likes overeasy (except me on the rare occasion), so I just did our eggs cooked all the way through. These were an absolutely magnificent burger. Matthew and Cami both claimed that it had definitely hit top 5 for them and Nick also claimed it was one of the best burgers he had ever eaten. I thought it was pretty freaking fantastic too.

Puffins

Pancakes meet muffins in this wonderful breakfast that you can customize in so many ways!

Puffins // Pancakes meet muffins in this wonderful breakfast that you can customize in so many ways! #recipe #easyrecipe #breakfast #chocolate #bacon #cranberry #caramel #pancakes #muffins

This is one of the most genius recipes I've ever found and made. It literally can be turned into whatever flavor combinations you want it to have. It could be savory or sweet. For our puffins, I made mini chocolate chip, cranberry and white chocolate, and bacon and caramel. All three combinations were fantastic, but my favorite was the chocolate chip for sure. The possibilities are endless and if you do make these with your own combination, please leave me a comment. We make these often and keep making the same three flavors because we love them so much, but I would love to try new combinations too!
