How to Make Your Own Twinkies

They're in. They're out. They might. They won't. They could. The judge might make them...

Well, you don't have to worry about it anymore. Just go make your own Twinkies!

Don't Be a Turkey!

According to NBC News, one-third of the turkey we cook for Thanksgiving Day gets thrown away. What's worse, throwing away turkey isn't just bad manners or a big waste of money ($282 million), it's also bad for the environment (when you take into account how much energy and water is used to raise those turkeys).

To do my part, I've rounded up my favorite ways to use leftover turkey. (And if you have any recipes you love using rotisserie chicken, just use turkey instead!)

Chicken in White Wine

Chicken in White Wine. I made this last week, but used real bacon and kept skin on chicken. (Take that, Weight Watchers!)

Next time, I would season/blacken the chicken before browning to make a crust with the skin. I added my own spices but it still could have used more. The gravy it makes is SUPERB!

Remember, I collect all of the recipes I have actually made on this Pinterest board (with comments). I try to eventually post them here too but sometimes life gets in the way!

South Mississippi restaurants gathering supplies for East Coast

Several Coast restaurants are collecting supplies through Operation BBQ Relief to take to the East Coast to feed families displaced by Hurricane Sandy. Donations of non-perishable items such as cleaning supplies and plastic gloves are needed, as well as seasonings, barbecue sauces and rubs, charcoal and industrial-sized cans of vegetables and beans are needed.
