Fried chicken fillet.
Lettuce or cabbage.
Ranch sauce.
Spicy Cheetos Potato Fire.
OPTIONAL: mozzarella cheese pieces.

Step 1:
I fried the filet of chicken and set it aside for later.
Step 2:
I cut the lettuce, the cucumber, and tomatoes into very small pieces.
Step 3:
The bread will be sliced into squares and fried too.
Step 4:
And the last thing, to the lettuce and cucumber, I added fried chicken and bread and to it the ranch sauce and the crushed potato Cheetos on the top, and in good health, simple measures are right, but the taste is great.

Pasta Fagioli that is bound to be a hit

My new favourite!! I made it several times and I haven’t found anyone who doesn’t like it, you should definitely give it a shot!!

– 2 lbs. of ground beef
– 1 chopped onion
– 3 chopped carrots
– 4 stalks chopped celery
– 2 (28 ounce) cans of diced tomato’s (Must undrained)
– 1 (16 ounce) can of red kidney beans (Must drained and rinsed)
– 1 (16 ounce) can of white kidney beans (Must drained and rinsed)
– 3 (10 ounce) cans of beef stock
– 3 tsp. oregano
– 2 tsp. pepper
– 5 tsp. parsley
– 1 tsp. of tabasco sauce (If desired)
– 1 (20 ounce) jar of spaghetti sauce
– 8 ounces pasta


  1. Make sure to brown the beef and drain the fat……then put into crock pot with all other ingredients except the pasta.
  2. Once done, you can cook on low for about 7 to 8 hours or on High for about 4 to 5 hours.
  3. Finally, add the pasta 30 minutes before eating then serve with crusty warm bread!!!

Recipe Notes;
You’d best cut the recipe in half if you do not have a large crock pot. Pasta Fagioli also freezes wonderfully, so you can make a big batch and freeze the rest!!! Enjoy everyone.

Chicken Drumsticks

16 chicken drumsticks (or a combination of drumsticks and thighs)
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 1/2 tablespoons Tabasco sauce
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons black pepper (divided)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Vegetable oil (for frying, about 3 cups)

Heat the warming drawer or oven to 200 F.
Pat the chicken with paper towels to dry.
In a large bowl, combine the buttermilk, Tabasco sauce, salt, and 1 tablespoon of black pepper.
Add the chicken legs to the mixture and toss to coat.
Cover and refrigerate with the marinade for at least 1 hour (or up to 24 hours).
Remove the chicken from the buttermilk and let any excess buttermilk drip off.
Combine the flour, additional 1 tablespoon black pepper, and the cayenne.
Shake the chicken legs in the seasoned flour and place on a rack while waiting for the oil to heat.
In a large, heavy saucepan or deep skillet or sauté pan, heat at least 3 cups of oil to about 365 F. Fry the chicken legs in batches for about 10 minutes, turning once.
To check for doneness, use an instant-read food thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the largest drumstick, not touching bone.
The minimum safe temperature for poultry is 165 F.
Remove the chicken to paper towels to drain.
Place the drained chicken on a baking sheet, cover loosely with foil, and move to the warming drawer or oven to keep warm while frying subsequent batches.
Serve And Enjoy!

In deep-frying, the food is completely immersed in the oil, while in pan-frying the food is placed in enough oil to cover the bottom and sides.
making it necessary to turn the pieces over to fry both sides.
Three cups of oil will give you a depth of 1/2-inch in a deep 10-inch skillet and is sufficient to pan-fry.

Nothing beats a good ribeye and nothing beats a steak grilled over charcoal. But even if you cook over a propane grill you can still use my tips to turn your ribeye into a steak house style steak!

2 bone ribeye steaks about 1 1/2 inches thick each steak should weigh about a pound
oil to coat grill
sea salt and black pepper or your favorite steak house seasoning
My Seasoning blend
2 tablespoons Montreal steak seasoning
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon tumeric
1/2 teaspoon chili powder* optional
US Customary – Metric

Remove the steak from the refrigerator and let it reach room temperature — around 30 minutes. Trim excess fat to avoid flare-ups, and vertically slash the thin piece of fat around the outside of the steak to keep it from curling. Liberally apply sea salt and black pepper(or your favorite steak house seasoning blend) . Flip the steak and repeat the process.
Light one chimney full of charcoal. When all the charcoal is lit and covered with gray ash, pour out and arrange the coals on one side of the charcoal grate. Set cooking grate in place, cover grill and allow to preheat for 5 minutes. Clean and oil the grilling grate.
Place the steak at the hottest part of the grate, directly above the coals, and let it sear for two to three minutes, then flip the steak and sear the other side for two to three minutes. (During the searing process, resist the urge to move the steak around with the tongs, as this will prevent optimal grill marks. Close the lid to prevent flare-ups.)
After the steak is properly seared, if it’s not finished, move it to the warm side of the grate (not directly over the coals), close the lid and continue to cook the steak until it’s at your desired temperature for doneness. You don’t need to flip the steak during this indirect grilling stage.
Using a digital instant-read meat thermometer, check the temperature of the steak while it’s still on the grill. Grill the steak to your desired taste: 130°F for rare, 135°F medium-rare, 145°F medium, 150°F medium well and 160°F for well done. Keep in mind that the steak will continue to cook a few degrees more when it’s removed from the grill.
After removing the steak from the grill, place on a cutting board, loosely cover it with aluminum foil, and allow it to “rest” for five minutes (the temperature will continue to rise a few degrees while the juices redistribute into the meat).
