Welcome to my virtual kitchen!

I hope you enjoy your visit here, whether it’s your first time or your 30th. I first started sharing my recipes as Facebook Notes, until my friends began asking how they could share them with their friends; so I gathered my courage and tiptoed into the world of blogging via Tumblr. As interest in my blog started “cooking,” my wonderful hubby set me up at WordPress with my own domain. (All the content from my previous blog moved here as well.) Let me know what you think, and be sure to bookmark it for future reference!

My other hobby, scrapbooking, is also documented at WordPress here.

Fried Chicken FTW 🐔

When it comes to a classic like fried chicken, there are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of options. One celebrated local spot is Champy’s, known for their crispy and flavorful juicy chicken (and kitschy rustic decor). I enjoyed celebrating my birthday a week early with my brother and sister-in-law and enjoyed my chicken strips with their house dipping sauce and a side of their crispy fries.
