These handheld chicken and waffle cones are a copycat version of the wildly popular Chick N’ Cone restaurant. Chicken tenders fried to crispy perfection and tossed in homemade sauces like Kickin’ Ranch and Yella BBQ and stuffed into ice cream shop waffle cones. These are the ultimate combination of sweet and savory and perfect for a brunch! Keep reading to see how you can make this Chick N’ Cone copycat recipe at home…
Chinese food is the greatest cuisine ever. In the history of time, I don’t think I have left a Chinese restaurant without spending at least $60. I can’t just get one entree. No, no. I must get two of my favorite entrees (which is always a tie between General Tso’s, Orange Chicken, Sesame Chicken and Sweet & Sour Chicken) plus Lo Mein and an appetizer or two; spring rolls and pan fried dumplings. I am getting so hungry just talking about it.
Why am I making an Orange Chicken Copycat Recipe from The Cheesecake Factory of all places? I realize it’s a bit random to be sharing an orange chicken recipe from the Cheesecake Factory as it’s not an authentic Chinese restaurant or even a Chinese restaurant for that matter LOL but, they do have a really good version that’s widely loved.
So I decided to create a recipe for this dish so I can help all the people that adore this dish (myself included) make this at home! Read More
The best appetizer at Olive Garden hands down, is the Chicken Alfredo Pizza Fritta. So it’s no surprise that today I will be remaking this recipe with a copycat version of my very own. Sorry OG, but this recipe is better than the original! My husband, Aaron, took a bite and said OMG THIS IS THE BEST THING I’VE EVER EATEN. Granted, he has said this more than once, but this still goes down as one of the greatest copycat meals I have made. Second of course to my Copycat Popeye’s Famous Chicken Sandwich Recipe.
Picture a hot pocket full of homemade chicken alfredo, but instead of hot pocket crust, it’s pillowy soft homemade (EASY) pizza dough. And to make it even better, YOU DIP IT IN HOMEMADE GARLICKY ALFREDO SAUCE!!! The only downside to this recipe is the urge to dive in before they cool off in the center. Guaranteed your impatience will result in burning your mouth with the molten alfredo inside – don’t say I didn’t warn you 🙂 Read More
Who knew brisket could be so incredibly delicious in the oven!? This brisket recipe is fall-off-the-bone tender (although brisket cuts aren’t on the bone, but you get the point :)) and perfect for these cold months when you are not interested in being outside at the grill.
These sliders are sweet and spicy with a perfect combination of barbecue sauce, honey slider buns, and jalapeno spiked creamy skillet macaroni & cheese. This is essentially a whole meal in a tiny little slider. Um, yes! Read More
Super Bowl Sunday!!!!! Even when I don’t have a team I am rooting for, I still love Super Bowl Sunday every year. It’s basically another fun holiday to look forward to. Time with your friends and family, and most importantly, a reason to cook them awesome food! I’m super excited about these Rib-Eye Sliders with Garlic Parmesan Cream Sauce. It’s a lot of gourmet love packed into one tiny sandwich. But it’s really the perfect size, snackable, hand-held and finished in a few quick bites. Just enough to satisfy the steak urge while still leaving room for the hot corn dip, buffalo dip, brisket mac & cheese sliders and delicious desserts… that I plan on eating. Possibly all on the same plate 😉 Read More
The most important part of an egg roll is flavorful filling, without that, you say “meh” after you bite into it. You don’t want to have to drown it in sauce in order for it to be delicious. Even worse is oil-laden egg rolls where you can’t taste anything other than the oil that is coating your mouth.
If you want to make perfectly crispy, super flavorful egg rolls, my mom’s famous Chicken Egg Roll recipe is simply the best. And, they are just in time for the Chinese Lunar New Year which is today! Read More
THE Popeyes Chicken Sandwich is officially back at Popeyes TODAY!! To celebrate, I am re-making the sandwich for all of us that don’t really feel like dealing with the mosh pit of people just to get one.
You eat a lot of chicken sandwiches in your life. But this is truly one that stops you in your tracks and lingers in your mind long after you eat it. It’s amazing. It’s brilliant. It makes me so happy and this version is just as amazing if not better than the original. Read More
Today it’s raining in Atlanta. Gloomy, drizzly and cloudy. A perfect day to stay in the house, cook good food and binge watch some movies or TV shows. Days likes these make me reminisce on the good ole days in my hometown of Portland, OR. So I’ve decided that today, my blog post will be an ode to Portland and I’m making one of my favorite items, Burgerville’s Yakima Valley Fried Asparagus with Garlic Aioli. Read More
I decided to remake one of the most legendary fast food breakfast items of all times, the McDonald’s McGriddles and it turned out pretty darn fantastic! These pancake buns are incredibly soft and have delicate pockets of warm maple syrup throughout each bite. There is a little secret to getting the syrup inside of the McGriddle’s. Read More

This will be your new favorite game day food, and let’s face it, the good food is the main reason why I am so interested in football 🙂 Read More
